TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100.
Yep, so think of it what you will, but this thing always manages to end up being a pretty massive day as well as creating a bit of controversy. Be it not having any females…to Angus & Julia Stone winning with a song about a big fucking plane. Shannon Noll sang about a big car…didn’t see him winning anything! (JOKES!)
Because maamf hasn’t done a best tracks of 2011 list (it is simply too hard and I think the ‘art’ of making a good album is more interesting), I thought I should post up what tracks I voted for in this years Hottest100. These are in no order…but hopefully they reflect my diverse taste which I try to put across on this here blog. If you still havent voted, then it all closes TOMORROW NIGHT!

ok. So quite a change from my anti study post a few days ago! But it’s still a form of procrastination, so it all evens out. I’ve found that some music helps me study! It’s been proven that classical music can help studying and i think the same has been said about certain jazz styles. But, I have limited classical or jazz in my music library. But i do have a bit of what i suppose you’d term, “Post Rock”, as well as some great endurance style dance music. So yeah, anyway, here’s my study tape! Should suit your last minute cramming on the train quite well me thinks.
ok. Here goes!
01. Imogen Heap – Hide andSeek
02. Death Cab For Cutie – What Sarah Said
03. We Plants Are Happy Plants – Apollo
04. Decoder Ring – Serac
05. M83 – You Appearing
06. Grizzly Bear – Foreground
07. Sigur Rós – Sæglópur
08. The Album Leaf – Thule
09. Jeff Lang – Rain On Troy
10. The Field – Leave It
11. Laura – Every Light
So yeah, this list seriouslyhelps me study. Is quite soothing and, dare i say it, inspiring. I hate using that word, but I can’t think of another one!!
K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
