8. Jun. 2013, 2:13 von dthannahWell, I posted My Hottest 100 for the last 20 years. Now here's the actual list that Australia and the world voted for:

93. Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun The most popular song from Soundgarden's amazing album Superunknown.

21. Mai. 2013, 21:30 von dthannahWell if you haven't heard, radio station Triple J is running a poll to find out the best songs of the last twenty years (1993 to 2012). Everyone gets twenty votes and I can tell you, it's tough finding 20 songs from out of my absolute favourites. It's taken me more than a week, so...
Here it is, the final list in no particular order:
Daft Punk - Aerodynamic (2001)
The Presets - My People (2008)
The Whitlams - Melbourne (1997)
Garbage - Only Happy When It Rains (1995)
Korn - Freak on a Leash (1998)
Ladytron - The Lovers (2008)
Ministry - Lay Lady Lay (1996)
Nine Inch Nails - Closer (1994)
Muse - Hysteria (2003)
Pulp - Disco 2000 (1995)
The Distillers - Coral Fang (2003)
The Grates - Burn Bridges (2008)
Kaiser Chiefs - I Can Do It Without You (2007)
The Prodigy - Voodoo People (1994)
The Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet With Butterfly Wings (1995)
Moby - Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? (1999)
Radiohead - Paranoid Android (1997)
Röyksopp - Happy Up Here (2009)
The Chemical Brothers - Setting Sun (1997)
2. Jan. 2013, 7:49 von shug94I love the number 31. This is because my favourite NBA basketball player of all time - Reggie Miller - wore it.
I logged onto last.fm just after midnight ticked over from 2012 into 2013 and I opened up all of my charts for the previous 12 months. I want to present them, but I don't want to give you information overload.
Combine these two little snippets of information and it becomes obvious what I must do; present my top 31 most played Albums, Artists and Tracks of 2012.
I may also add some commentary here and there.
Note well that this is not my subjective ranked favourite stuff that was released in 2012, but rather just the raw number of listens (of stuff from all time periods) that I scrobbled.
New releases are tagged with *NEW*.
Bands I saw live (in 2012) are tagged with *SAW*
1. Jack White – Blunderbuss (137 plays) - *NEW*
2. The Shins – Port of Morrow (132 plays) - *NEW*
3. Alabama Shakes – Boys & Girls (126 plays) - *NEW*

25. Jul. 2012, 6:52 von shug94To see the first round, and a summary of all of the rules and restrictions go here.
Anyway, on with the action:
(32) Los Campesinos! vs (17) The Shins
(... and We Exhale and Roll Our Eyes in Unison vs. For a Fool)
- Four sweaty boys with guitars tell me nothing about my life. It is truly a great line from a pretty dang good Los Campesinos! song. I often get the kind of group singalong part at the end of this song stuck in my head. The Shins once again go back to the well of their new album. And 'For A Fool' is definitely a better song than 'Port Of Morrow'. But it isn't good enough. Our 32nd ranked Brits move on once again!
(8) Belle and Sebastian vs (24) Ben Kweller
(Dress Up in You vs. Problems)
- If you asked me how 'Dress Up In You' goes I would not have known, but now that it is playing I recognise it. I guess this is because I often listen to B&S as albums rather than individual songs. This song meanders a little as it strolls along and a plaintive trumpet sounds in the background. …

13. Jul. 2011, 3:44 von shug94So, I got engaged about a month ago. On the 4th of June 2011.
I just had my engagement party this past weekend, on the 9th of July 2011.
I spent some time choosing the songs, to try and choose not only songs that would get the party started, or songs that I love, but also songs that I know my fiancee loves. Sometimes I would choose my favourite song from one of her favourite artists (e.g. Spoon - The Underdog), and sometimes her favourite song by one of my favourite artists (e.g. Regurgitator - Superstraight).
Anyway, here is the list, in reverse played order from that night:
Ben Kweller – Wasted and Ready
Gomez – Girlshapedlovedrug
The Bens – Just Pretend
The White Stripes – You're Pretty Good Looking (For a Girl)
Regurgitator – ! (The Song Formerly Known As)
Los Campesinos! – My Year in Lists
The Grates – Sukkafish
Jens Lekman – You Are the Light
The Get Up Kids – Mass Pike
Brand New – Soco Amaretto Lime
The Black Keys – Tighten Up
Prince – 1999
The Black Keys – Have Love Will Travel
