Here at Bobbysix.com, we occasionally mention Triple J and their Hottest 100. Now, our non-Australian readers probably wonder what the hell we are talking about. Well, to explain, Triple J is a radio station in Aus and, every Australia Day, they count down the most popular 100 singles as voted for by the public. The Hottest 100. It's a pretty big deal.
Indeed, Bobbysix's Deputy Editor Heidi has been known to take days sweating over her Hottest 100 votes, panicking about whether she should vote for her personal favourite on the album, or the most popular single, propelling a worthy artist to a higher rank? Is that selling out? What about that little-known band who she loves but that will never make it in, is that wasting her vote? And if she does that, will Art vs Science achieve a better result than they would have if she’d voted for, say, The Grates instead?) etc, etc, until oblivion. You get the picture.
Well, anyway, Melbourne DJs Nice and Ego recently compiled this little clip which mashes together all (yes all) 100 songs from this year's poll in an audio visual megamix. It's kinda like a microcosmic version of Australia Day. Only without the beers, the barbeque and the day off work. Still, you get the idea.
