With 2012 having sped right past us and leaving us in a state of confusion, it appears that the hardest part of the year is upon us. No, I’m not talking about what you’re getting your mother for Christmas, it’s Hottest 100 time! Triple j have sounded the Horn of Gondor, demanding our assistance in determining what was the best song of 2012.
Yessir, now you have to backtrack across the entire year’s purchases and illegal downloads and determine what is worthy to be recognised as the song of the year. Was it this year’s hometown heroes Flume, The Presets, or Tame Impala? Possibly the likes of Muse, Plan B, Japandroids, Cloud Nothings, Kanye’s collaborative work with his pals, or was it the post-rock work of Sigur Ros that took your fancy?
Whatever it was, make sure you’re on the money as you only get one vote. You’ve got plenty of time also, with voting staying open until 20th January (midnight). After that the counting begins, and as Santa’s elves once again go on a working holiday after the December season, they’ll make their way Down Under to help Tom & Alex as they work tirelessly to count our thousands of votes. Then on Australia Day the big reveal happens. So get voting on the link here and don’t miss out on the world’s biggest annual music poll!
