what i voted for

Voting for the Triple J Hottest 100 closed last night. But I got my votes in early, as I do every year. I hope you all voted too. My votes this year were for: Animal Collective – Summertime Clothes, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Home, Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks, Jamie T – Sticks N Stones, Lisa Mitchell – Coin Laundry, Mumford and Sons – Little Lion Man, Passion Pit – Sleepyhead, Phoenix – Lisztomania, Sarah Blasko – We Won’t Run, and Vampire Weekend – Cousins.

For those who are not familiar, the Triple J Hottest 100 is somewhat of an institution down here in Australia. The best description can be found via the JJJ website:

“The idea is pretty straight forward: ask Australians everywhere to vote for their favourite song of the year and tell us why. triple j then collates the results and plays the countdown on Australia Day – but the end result is much more. By voting you are taking part in the world’s biggest musical democracy. You’re also joining a world-wide party as listeners in Australia and ex-pats everywhere get together, crank up the radio and party to the best songs of 2009.”

What were your top songs of 2009?

    'We Won't Run' was on my list too.
    I didn't pay too much attention to what was played on Triple J last year, I didn't have a home computer to check it all out until October.. so everything I voted for was pretty mainstream 🙂
