Over the Aussie long weekend just gone the national radio and the sister station have been doing new and old countdowns for 2018 and 1998 songs. They’ve open polls again so you, me or anyone who wants to vote for week can re-jig the 98 final list or just top 10 which they’re going to play in a week or so time, check it out here! Hell with waiting because I’ve now done my very own top ten, off course! Mainly it’s just full of songs that didn’t even get close to the original top ten but all were in the hottest 100 somewhere? Cutting all the total crap or stuff I just don’t dig and editing down to only my fave ten tracks, just my opinion is…
My #1: Sich Offnen by Not From There (original number 100)
My #2: Come On Spring by Antenna (original number 64)
My #3: Black Bugs by Regurgitator (original number 32)
My #4: Don’t Wanna Be Left Out by Powderfinger (original number 46)
My #5: Just Ace by Grinspoon (original number 18)
My #6: No Surprises by Radiohead (original number 55)
My #7: Teardrop by Massive Attack (original number 23)
My #8: Wishlist by Pearl Jam (original number 88)
My #9: Intergalactic by Beastie Boys (original number 25)
My #10: El President by Drugstore (original number 82)
The Aussie acts take out my top five songs but then three English and two American make up the rest! What do you think? Anyway last year I did do a huge 1998 playlist which turn into 100 tracks in the end so I might be repeating myself today? I guess it was a bit of fun, both times. Then again last year’s playlist does included a lot of stuff that triple j didn’t bother with at all but some more that did miss out on my little ten above today!
Anyway what would be your fave song/s for jjj’s 98 hottest 100 or maybe just from the year 1998? Or did I ask you this last year?
