Happy Australia Day everyone! My favourite thing about Australia Day, apart from the fact that you get a day off work, is that it is the day when Triple J does its Hottest 100 countdown! If you’re one of my non-Aussie readers, Triple J is a national radio station and every Australia Day they have a countdown of the previous year’s 100 top songs, as voted by listeners. This year there were 1,378,869 votes! It’s 5pm here in Australia and so far they’re up to #39 and two of the songs I voted for have popped up. Hooray!
GOTYE got #1! Woo! And 8 of the 10 songs I voted for made it in the top 100! Woo!
