The Morning After

Australia Day. The day where we slack off with our only worries being the cricket and the Triple J Hottest 100. Admittedly, we all knew who was going to win, Gotye, “Somebody I Used to Know”. Playing it was much like a formality, the final victory march of a great song, even though we had all gotten a bit sick of it. So the real question was, who was going to make up the top ten. Silly people starting shouting, “Pumped Up Kicks!!!!!” But what they didn’t realise was that it was released as a single in 2010 so it was in that countdown.

But the real issues caused, were suffered later in the night. I’m so tired right now because I couldn’t sleep. Endless playing of songs prevented me from sleeping and now I have what can be called a music hangover.

All in all, a great day of music and fun. And it was good to see 7 of the top 10 were Australian. Although the Belgians would disagree.

Sleep Deprivers:

2. “Lonely Boy” – The Black Keys

3. “Brother” – Matt Corby

5. “Midnight City” – M83

10. “I Love It” – Hilltop Hoods (Featuring Sia)

22. “Air” – Snakadaktal

44. “Speak of the Devil” – Hermitude

46. “Hanging On” – Active Child

67. “Zimbabwe” – New Navy

78. “History’s Door” – Husky

89. “Santa Fe” – Beirut
