10 Songs that should (but probably won’t) top triple j’s Hottest 100
The Guardian asked me to provide some suggestions as to what should be topping the Hottest 100 in Taylor Swift’s stead.
Now, this was before my sudden – rather alarming – conversion to Taylor Swift’s new album 1989, otherwise I might just have voiced the opinion that many share: what the hell is wrong with Taylor Swift topping triple j’s Hottest 100?
Whatever. Here are my suggestions, all totally inappropriate of course (uh, Ela Stiles – really?), but I thought you might enjoy seeing them.
If nothing else, it’s a reasonable indication of one side of my taste. The top 5 are all Australian.
1. Babaganouj – Too Late For Love
2. Ela Stiles – Kumbh Mela
3. The UV Race – Raw Balls
4. Bloods – Want It
5. The Saints – Sweet Chariot
6. Alvvays – Archie, Marry Me
7. Babymetal – Gimme Chocolate!!!
8. Beyoncé – Superpower
9. Hospitality – Going Out
10. Miley Cyrus – Wrecking Ball G-Major
