DISCUSSION FORUM
Forum - General: Music/Charts related - Universal JJJ Hottest 100

I was tossing around an idea after reading Hijinx's recent "ultimate" JJJ Hottest 100 countdown, but then totally forgot to get it started in time.

It's only 91 days until the 2016 JJJ Hottest 100 countdown (and yes, I was supposed to started this 100 days out), so why not a countdown ourselves to nut out a "universal" JJJ Hottest 100 - that is, the most popular song of each position over the last 23 yearly Hottest 100's (All Time lists not included here).

You can vote publically by posting here, or as a judging panel by memo-ing me (do you hear Eurovision calling?). Each position should take one day each, with #1 announced on the day of the 2016 countdown - 26th January.

But yes, I'm way behind, and things can start out slowly with members jumping on board for these games, so I'm going to give you two positions per day until we align to one per day. This will take us to #83, and then I will announce the first 17 positions in one go. After that, each position will be played out daily. By then, hopefully, we will have heaps of members on board to vote.

Points should be allocated as follows:
3 points - your favourite song in that position
2 points - second favourite song in that position
1 point - do I have to say? - third favourite song in that position

The song accumulating the most points will make up the universal list below:

(Remember, the more votes memo'ed to me will create more surprise, but public votes are also fun).

Have fun as we countdown 100 days (OK, 91 days) until the next JJJ Hottest 100!!!

There's been a good response for the first voting, so I will post the outcome of these each night, daily, and release the next positions to vote for. I also have just two jury votes, so I'm going to include myself in that so we have at least one secret vote.
Can I still vote for #100 & #99.
Yes...Voting will end tonight.

I was going to give this another day in case there were a few stragglers interested in voting, but I think the winners here are pretty clear, well #100 for sure. #99 was in striking distance, but let's get this thing started.

I wouldn't mind seeing a top 10 for each spot either. What's the tiebreaker? Most 3's and so on.
I was planning on doing a "surprise" second place Hottest 100 when all was done - an "alternate universal" list. It was supposed to blow you all away as totally unexpected, but I guess I'll have to think of some other surprise.

But yes, I think, at the moment, apart from the top 2, most of the other songs gain similar votes.

Here is an easy way to reduce the number of ties and implement a count-back system all at the same time... when you tally up the points, you could change 3 points to 2.999, 2 points to 1.998 and 1 point to 0.997
The current positions are closing in less than an hour, so those who wish to make a vote need to get in quick. This one is close!

Correct K8. It's just a fun rule to say that the jury is like a group of professionals that have the final say.

Honestly, the 3 songs were on 5 votes each when I posted. Keith put Gossip ahead by one, but that was posted during the time I was writing the new rule. One voter who had Every Morning as their face still hadn't voted in the tiebreaker, and the last voter who voted for none of the three could have easily gone for Daft Punk to make it a tie again.

Anyway, it makes better sense to me that the initial voting should give an outcome without going back over it.

This is an longer explanation for this as I intended, but I just don't want to think this is a dodgy thing

fun rule or suss rule? Was this mentioned prior to five or six people voting for The Gossip because I reckon all those people would have voted privately had they have known. Maybe I just missed those instructions.

As much as I like Every Morning and voted for it to get my 2 points I can't help but say that I don't think this rule is completely fair but it's your game so do as you please but I reckon you should find a better solution and not exclude those who do actually take the time to take part and vote and then be told their vote isn't worthy to be counted.

It's looks like the tiebreaker controversy has lost us quite a few voters, but you still time to vote for your fave #94 & #93 songs for the Universal Hottest 100 list.

There's no clear winner at the moment, and both current front runners are a bit of a surprise to me.

Hopefully we will get a few more votes in. I'm out to dinner, so the results will be posted when I return.
Sigh I won't vote if I'm not sure that my vote will count.

I think that in future the rules of a game should not be changed without widespread consultation. The same thing happened with the nostalgia thread.

Seriously! The game just started and it hit a speed bump.....

Simple, if your want your vote to be 'counted' make your vote silent!
"It's looks like the tiebreaker controversy has lost us quite a few voters"


I guess that's what happens when things aren't fair and you have participants left feeling worthless and their input not valued. I have to be honest and say as much of a JJJ fan I am that I am losing interest in this also.

I hope for your sake, it's a case of today being a Monday and not a weekend when more people might have been around.

It might not change the outcome of the last round but I would rectify the issue to be fairer if I were you. You ultimately told a handful of voters to fuck off yesterday, atleast that's how I see it!
Posting publicly does have an advantage in itself, that you're strongly advertising that the song(s) you're voting for are quite backable. Heck, maybe subliminally (or superliminally) you could convince someone to follow your lead. All it takes is 1 vote of sway and you'll mitigate and overwrite any advantage a private voter could have.

#votegaslight
I honestly think the chances of a tie in overall points, leading to another tie in amount of 3 point awards, and then 2 point awards, is probably not going to happen again. I honestly cannot believe the reaction this caused, where most people have just gone "OK", and continued voting. It's a condition I was unable to predict, and just as creative as this game is itself, the opportunity came for me to make the tie rule a creative one. Unfortunately for me, I thought of it too late.

keith...you're absurd in saying that your vote doesn't count. K8, I will bite my tongue.

RESULTS!

It's going to be a pretty mainstream result in all honesty so why all the conjecture? As I 'fairly' pointed out, if your that far past common sense you'd vote silent to 'ensure' your vote counts.
Nobody told anyone to f#%* @$! so to speak, Chris just thought of a way to keep the game moving because as he stated, it was looking like it was tying up again anyway. Which in theory would happen anyway if you voted for a song in a tie breaker in the first instance.

I don't participate in many games on these forums because of cry babies and sooks who need to go back and suck on mummies titties for a bit longer, got better things to spend my time on than precious princess.

So be it, stick to your guns Chris it's your game after all, for the others suck it up and grow a pair!

Tie-breaker - countback only.

I've considered all the complaints (and know I'm not getting the players back, actually one player CAN "fuck off" as stated) but I'm not opening up this game to suggestions that it's cheated. The purpose of this exercise was to compile my own personal Hottest 100, and thought it would be good to give others a platform to do their own.

If the outcome is a tie after countback, it's a tie, and both/all will be included in the final list. To those still voting, hope you enjoy the 92% of the game that is left.

Beanster, I am only saying it like it feels and you probably don't feel this way because you or the way you voted weren't impacted by it. Rules make a game fair and when rules are made up afterwards and not stated clearly beforehand it comes across as one of two ways (whether it is or not it is how it looks for all involved).

Firstly, when a large number voted and favoured a particular song and then told their votes won't count looks like the process is being rigged. The outcome will probably be no different, but that is how it looks like.

Secondly, when people are told their votes won't count without prior knowledge that that will happen it feels like the "cool kids" can vote and "the uncool kids" can't and so it feels like some are being told to f off and that their input is not wanted.

chri8topher, I hope you appreciate feedback rather than take offence but when you say it looks like people have dropped out and stopped voting maybe you need to look at why as I imagine you'd want more people to participate than less. It's not having a dig at you. The idea behind this is awesome and I am a fan of it. I just think that one controversy wasn't exactly a fair one and I can see why people would turn away from taking part. I hope you can see that too.

@ K8

lol no offence but this little black duck is not one of the cool kids and the result in all honesty, I couldn't give a rats arse.
Just once, all I would like to do is enjoy a game without the drama. Just once!

As far as Chris' intentions i'd imagine, like any person who divulges their time and genius into any of these formatted games would only wish for as much harmonious participation as possible.

So as for the way you felt or still feel please don't take it to heart it was never the intention just the way it evolved.

80 days to go!

Alice In Chains kick off the next round of voting with two entries! Elsewhere, Daniel Johns is vying for his first placement in the Universal list courtesy of both Silverchair and The Dissociatives. Could Muse or Green Day be the first artist to score two entries in the Universal Hottest 100? And can we finally crack the hold that the 90's have over this list?

79 days to go!

From the #79 list of songs, only R.E.M. has secured a place in the Universal chart. Their listing for #79 is a strong contender for their second entry, but previous JJJ #1 artists The Whitlams, and #2 artists Grinspoon, Little Red and The Black Keys, will all be looking for an early entry in the list. Maybe Kelis' ARIA #2 hit will upset the lot of them.

Ah...the glory days of the JJJ Hottest 100, when chart hits made the list far more frequently than they do now. I guess East 17 would be equal to One Direction making the list now. Can they fare in the universal chart?

(still in shock @ US election)
By the way, East 17 were considered an 'edgier' Take That, so they are probably more of a 5 Seconds of Summer than a Wand Erection.
I always wondered this about East 17.

I was never sure if they were an indie group. Their West End Girls cover made me think maybe but then I thought they might have got votes like Alanis Morissette who wasn't an independent artist did in 1995.

I like Deep but it sounds too rnb for a 90's JJJ hit. House Of Love has that in your face punky sort of sound which probably fits better, surprised that didn't make the 93 countdown too.

It's always kind of interesting with these things. I feel a lot of it comes down to the fact that it takes a while to pin down an artist's career. I've often thought that a lot of the time, as soon as everyone knows an artist's place and what they do, they stop having hits and move over to an Adult Contemporary format So East 17 were only just getting known here at the time and didn't have the same identity as a couple years later. In the future, people may be surprised that Lorde or Vance Joy fit in with things, even if it made sense at the time.

Something I've also always considered is that the voting dynamic has changed so much over the years. It takes 1000s of votes for a song to get in now, but back then, would even 100 be needed? I've found when you look at older Hottest 100s, there'll be smaller voting lists, and often less popular songs could easily get in through name. Foo Fighters in 2002 I think is definitely a case of this. It's also worth noting that the band Pale got in at #62 in 1994 just through rallying their hometown to vote for them. It just can't happen anymore because the sheer volume of 'regular' voters block anything in the path.
Must say I don't remember ever hearing East 17 on JJJ. And they'd been around for a year or two by 1993. A lot of pop acts made the inaugural H100 before they tightened the rules.

I do feel it must have been intentional at the time. I remember seeing an image that unfortunately wasn't high-detail enough to make it all out, but what I've learnt is that 1993's polling involved phoning in with specific codes from a shortlist of about 200-300, don't think there was any avenue for anything totally unexpected to get in.

I think you might have been able to vote by post as well in 1993. I remember the first year I voted 1995 was also the first year of internet voting. Although you could only vote for one song at a time.

@BB Which would have seen Portishead take the #79 position by 1 point - ouch! But had to keep a deadline unfortunately, even if i did extend it by an hour.
It was pretty open and shut for #78, despite being one of the harder rounds to pick from. I had 4 songs rated 5 stars on my iTunes to sort out, which is a lot easier than the 8-10 4 stars from previous positions.

Before we get into #73, I let you know of a slight twist in the game. I've been trying to find a way of making the Jury voting relevant, so I have worked out a reward for those who have been keeping each position more of a surprise. This will be for those who have and continue to vote secretly...but...this will not be revealed until the #50 position is up for the vote.

Just making sure it is well known in advance...

I've also been trying to find a way of posting the table of voting, but it's a tricky thing given the size. I think the format that works best is currently posted for #100, so it will take me some time to catch up.

Anyway,

Ha ha! Just going through the stats for each position to post in tables, and just found that the whole #98 debacle is a fake. My excuse is that I was just creating controversy for more public exposure, but yeah, I totally stuffed up.

The Gossip won the position outright! I miscounted the number of 3's the tied songs had, with Gossip registering 3. Furthermore, TravD's votes were counted as 3-2-2 instead of 1, giving Sugar Ray that extra vote that it shouldn't have.

So...long story short, although that's too late, Gossip won. My sincere apologies.

I'm off to wipe the pie from my face.

Interestingly, N****s In Paris actually had 4 x 3 point votes! Just goes to show how important those minor points are.

Coldplay have finally got themselves a place in the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 with "Clocks". There's a remix coming up later in the list, so I wonder if they can make it in twice for the same song?

We kick off this list with another one of those early chart hits that would never make the list today. Culture Beat went to #1 with "Mr. Vain", so it will be no surprise to find it do well here too.

It's a good 50/50 with the jury and public votes, and the surprises are coming through, as "Clocks" didn't fare to well publicly. Don't forget there is a reward in store for Jury votes (via memo), and I'll even explain the twist at #60.

The public vote was loving the #1 hits, but the jury wasn't having any of that. Not to say "Cosmic Girl" didn't have its fair share of chart success, compared to others on the list. The 90's have been quiet for the past two positions, so back on track for them.

There's 5 Top Ten hits in the following list, so things look to be getting a little harder to choose faves from hereon in.

I have to admit, it's hard to accept Madonna's "Beautiful Stranger" into the JJJ Hottest 100, but she was was critically and publicly at the top of her game a second time over in her career when this was released. I'm one that would try my best not to vote for her in the Universal list here (and I'm a big fan), but there really was little competition against her in this position, so...

It was a spread out field of songs this time around, and I guess, if in doubt, go with the classics. BillyBrett

I'm going to add in a rule though, and this is no negative reflection on BillyBrett's decision to vote for just one song (Utah Saints won by 3 points, so a 2 point score for another song would not have beaten them). I will only accept votes using all 3 positions (as in, 3, 2 and 1 points must be allocated for a valid vote).

I say this cause it seems unfair that one song should move three points ahead of the field without minor points for other songs.

As I said, it doesn't change anything for this round anyway, and something that I never thought of until it happened.

Now...

There's quite a bit of anonymity in the later years of the JJJ Hottest 100 countdowns at this early, almost halfway stage. Which is dangerous, as songs such as "Stayin' Alive" just might make it into the Universal JJJ list. Please prove me wrong!

Just going through #87, and found that I hadn't added tasty's 3 points for "Music" by Madonna. Unfortunately, with 4 votes for 3 points, this actually beat Birds Of Tokyo's "The Saddest Thing I Know" through a back count, with BOT scoring only 3 votes for 3 points, 1 for 2 points and 1 for 1 point.

Apologies, looks like Madonna has a 100% strike rate for the Universal list. Hopefully I have all the votes correct for the others.

It was a tight one for the #62 position, but Faith No More's #1 status nudged it just ahead of both Metallica and The Offspring by just 1 point.

#61 was another battle, but Daft Punk surged ahead from out of nowhere with the last couple of votes, which is only right, as it too was part of the last All Time Hottest 100 at #96. This is the first appears from the 2001 Hottest 100 list here, with 6 lists still yet to make any appearance.

It's been great to have so many jury votes coming in through memo, keeping each position more of a surprise. So it's time to give those guys a reward (the last attempt at reward didn't quite work out ).

At the halfway point, #50, each jury vote that has been made in the bottom 50 will allow you to -1 point for any position of the Top 50 as part of your vote. For example, those who have voted via memo for every song in the lower 50, will be able to -1 for EVERY position in the Top 50. (I have, myself, voted as a jury member, however, I will not take part of the -1 rule due to knowing the scores as they go.) Those who have voted 10 times, can -1 point for any 10 positions in the Top 50.

-1 point votes can only be made via memo, and can be used in any strategy. You might immediately not like a song, or you might try to disadvantage a song that is trending well with the public vote. But don't leave it too late to gauge those high public votes, voting will still close 9pm the night after the list is posted.

Only one vote can be made via memo to -1. Any further memos after the original to change the -1 song will be invalid.

I will come up with a tally of how many -1 point votes each player is allowed, based on the amount of times they have memo'd a jury vote, and remember, there's still ten positions left before the Top 50, so each player can still earn at least 10 x -1 point votes.

Many of the songs so far, such as #62 "Easy", have won by just 1 or 2 points, and with up to 9 jury members voting at the moment putting in their -1 votes, it can certainly sway the result.

But first, let's get back to the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 countdown Top 60. (Remember, -1 point votes will not commence until #50)

We're a little messed up at the moment, and it seems to have also messed up the flow of the 90's lists that have been so strong in the Universal List. For the first time, the first 4 JJJ Hottest 100 songs for #59 have scored zero, which is the longest this has stretched so far. Not to say the 90's were without a shining light, as White Town came in second, but Calvin Harris enjoys his first placement in this list as he takes out the #59 position.

VOTING IS STILL OPEN FOR #58!!

As I posted the list for #58 a little later than usual, voting is still open, as is the new list for #57. There is no clear winner yet for #58, but I can say the current winner is from the last 10 years. Will that change with an extra day of voting?

U2 looked to enjoy their second song in the Universal JJJ list, but Midnight Juggernauts were breathing down their necks, looking for just a few more points to take them over.

We're getting very close to the halfway mark! The lists are getting harder to pull apart.

Sia has already made the Universal list at #72, and this time around has TWO entries to vote for. As does Xavier Rudd, who would be aiming for his first placement in the list. Frente!'s top ten hit will be the one to overcome, as the 90's have had a bit of a lull in the last three positions.

In a strange turn of events, the highest public voted song, and TWO highest jury voted songs didn't take out the #56 position. In fact, none of the three took out the runner-up position either!

It was actually a tie for first place, with PSB winning on a count back.

When you have The Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, R.E.M. and Foo Fighters all battling out for a song, you know it's going to be a hard one to pick.

Just remember, Wolfmother's "Woman" is the remixed version, not to be confused with the higher placed original version. That will be coming up for the vote soon.

We're just three places from the halfway mark of the Universal JJJ Hottest 100, which means you still have three -1 votes to add to your tally by voting via memo.

Also, look out for a new "voting guide" thread tomorrow which lists the all remaining songs from the Top 50 to vote for. This can be used as a guide to "pre-book" your votes, for times you will be busy (Christmas and New Year, not to mention Xmas parties, etc.). From the Top 50, I will except votes for any future positions, and keep them safe until the time comes. Actual voting for each position, however, will still open and close on a daily basis.

We've reached the halfway point, which means a new twist in scoring has begun!

Those who have been kind enough to vote via memo, thus making the outcome more surprisingly enjoyable, now receive a bonus in that they can -1 point as part of their vote. All votes of this nature MUST be done via memo. You may immediately assign a -1 for a song you do not like, or take one point off a song that is trending well in the public vote, but not up to your standard. But be careful not to leave it too late. Voting closes roughly 9pm every night, unless I'm too engrossed in a movie, and forget.

The amount of times you can "minus" vote, depends on how many times you voted via memo. These are the current minus votes available:

Hijinx48
BeansterBarnes44
Chris A39
K835
thewitness32
Clinton29
DaveNT25
benji220
tasytyfood8
TravD8
Tennis4
irelander3

(I will be able to see the developing points, so I will not add any minus points to my voting)

There will also be further develops in the voting...

The songs are getting tougher and tougher to pull apart, and I'm sure most voters would love to give more points to more songs. That wish will come true when we hit the Top 20.

The Top 20 positions in the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 will be opened up to have five songs voted for - that's your favourite receiving 5 points and 5th fave gaining 1 point. The Top 10 will expand again to include 10 songs ranked 10 points to 1 points, and the mother of all votes - #1 - will be a massive 20 song ranked from your top (20 points) to 20th fave (1 point).

The point of me telling you this now, is that the -1 points will be less significant as the higher points are assigned after the Top 20. So The -1 points for the Top 20 will become -2 per vote, Top 10 will be -3 points, and you will be able to -5 points for the #1 position.

This means those who have not gained the ability to minus as fruitfully as others, may wish to save their minus votes for the higher end of the chart.

Hopefully this is all clear...now:

50 days to go!

I wish we could rank 10 songs for #50. So many awesome songs.

It probably is said somewhere but we are only allowed to take 1 point away each round yeah? So I have 35 rounds I can take a point away? I cant take 5 points away in a single round? Sorry if you have said this I am brain fried tonight and the obvious isn't sinking in!

Yes, K8, just one minus vote per round. So you have 35 rounds available to you to "minus points" one song.

Top 50 - #21 you can -1 point for one song.
Top 20 - #11 you can -2 points for one song.
Top 10 - #2 you can -3 points for one song.
#1 you can -5 points for one song.

So you may wish to save your minus votes for later, and apply some now. The songs are regularly winning by just one point, so it does make a difference.

First time I've noticed that Jamiroquai got in the list in 2001 and 2002 with You Give Me Something
7 of those instances all up!
+3 Franz Ferdinand
+2 The Strokes
+1 Arctic Monkeys
I thought JJJ had a clause that prevented that. Or is that a new clause? Or me just making things up?
You might have noticed Mutha Fukka appearing twice too. It seems to have stopped happening since the mid-'00s.
And now remixes take care of this...ha ha! Clocks, Buttons, Woman, Rehab, etc.
+3 I Bet You Look Good On The Dancedloor
+2 Deception Bay
+1 The Dark Of The Matinee
In Rehab's case, the remix was the only version that got in, because it was the only version they played.

I think the main deal is that it's something they've only handled with more care once the Hottest 100 became a bigger institution around the mid 2000s. Songs stopped appearing in the top 100 twice after around 2002, and until around 2012, songs would occasionally get another crack if they only made the #101-#200 when they were a late release ("Audience", "One Life Stand"), but ever since they started broadcasting the 2nd 100 they haven't allowed that either.

I've often wondered if "Can't Hold Us" missed out on a chance at a good placing in 2013 because it snuck in for 2012 when it wasn't quite as well known.
Pray to God would probably have made the Hottest 100 if it was eligable the year later too.
I dunno about that. It was a victim of the cut off date in that it was getting more votes and climbing my prediction towards the end of it, but another year forward and I think its moment would have passed. Hard to say really.
The -1 points kicked in today, and there was a stroke against the Arctic Monkeys, but they were just too strong, posting the first win of 20 points (or over) since #73, and only the 7th song to reach 20 points overall.

Welcome to the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 Top 50!

If Garbage taught us anything, it's that a double entry in this list is definitely possible. The Arctic Monkeys are up for the same feat, but The Living End will also be looking for an entry here, also with two entries to vote for.

It's a pretty wide open list for the #48 position. No really big hits in this list. Will this be a chance for 2003, 2007, 2008 or 2011 to have their first entry into the list?

Time to close off #48, and the knives were out for Counting Crows, who managed to hold onto the top position by just one point after a total of 2 points "minused" by the jury. Nada Surf was just not popular enough!

After almost making it into the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 for the second time at #72, Birds Of Tokyo have officially made it two entries for the list at #47. That -1 point almost upset the #1 position, as "Tease Me" would have ties with first place, but lost on countback anyway. Just goes to show those minus privileges are worth the while.

I did think it was an odd minus, as no one had voted for it. I've fixed it up.

The Cure dominated the early JJJ Hot 100's, and now present their second highest entry in the regular Hottest 100's. They're up against another darling of the Hot 100's, Nirvana, so with a fairly weak field of hits, they could cement their position in the Universal list.

As far as scoring is concerned, #45 has proved to be the most interesting we've experienced yet.

First things first, The Smashing Pumpkins enjoy their first entry into the Universal JJJ Hottest 100, despite not winning the Public OR Jury vote.

The public vote went to Robert DeLong, with the Jury quick to crush his spirits with 4 x -1 votes! Ironically, another two jury votes were for 3 points each. So while the -1 points haven't yet caused an upset for first place, it did stop "Global Concepts" from finishing second.

That honour went to Portishead's "Glory Box", who started out with zero points from the public, but scored the most 3 points in the round, 4 in total, to land them in second place.

And just a shout out to 4th placed "The Time Is Now" by Moloko, who seemed to consistently gain one point from everyone. Well, 5 in total actually.

"Love Me Or Hate Me", that is the question!

On one hand we have a "Speak Of The Devil", with his "Temptation", "The Breach" and all that is "The Dope Show". And on the other, "God Is In The Radio", as we find "Salvation", "Baptism" and those who wish to be a "Better Man".

Who will you choose in this battle of heaven and hell? "Follow The Sun", or become a "Swamp Thing".

Garbage made a fair effort to secure a third song in the Universal Hottest 100, but it was Pearl Jam's "Better Man" that had this all wrapped up from the very go.

Seriously Courtney Barnett! Some of you are on drugs if that was your best!

Anyway because of being distracted and forgetting to vote

Votes would've been...

I share Beansters thoughts lol. I was going to -1 on her too!

'Dreams' seems to be one of the most unlikely JJJ entries so far (but I may give it some points)

+2 ON MELANCHOLY HILL Gorillaz
+1 TEFLON Jebediah
+3 Dreams
+2 Absolutely Fabulous

Should coulda woulda guys...ha ha!

Beanster, Courtney would have still won the game with a countback having more 1 point votes.
K8, that -1 would have allowed Ammonia to win after Beanster's vote.

+3 Dreams
+2 Stockholm Syndrome
+1 What the Water Gave Me
^.^
This was a hard round.
Once again the vote was split between the public ("Dreams") and the Jury ("Hurricane"), with neither winning the round. It was Muse who have become the first to score 3 entries in the Universal JJJ Hottest 100.

After Muse put 2003 into the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 list for the first time, it's up to Modest Mouse, Soko and The Strokes to get '07, '08 and '11 into the list for the first time. They'll have to fight off a skunk, gorillaz, a mouse, a boy and a bear first!

40 days to go!

If everything has been calculated correctly, there are just 40 days to go until the 2016 JJJ Hottest 100, but more importantly, 40 positions left in the Universal JJJ Hottest 100.

The Voting Guide has been fully updated, and can be found in the Games section of the forum index. I'm happy to take votes for future positions, should you be otherwise occupied (you know who you have been ). I only ask they be memo'd or posted in that thread if in advance.

This is also a handy tool to get the future big votes in preparation. Remember, the Top 20 will see the votes move from Top 3 to Top 5. The Top 10 will allow 10 voted songs with the #1 positions, a ranking of your Top 20. In fairness to other songs hoping to gain the minor points, only votes filling the full quota will be accepted.

Anyway, back to the current positions...

39 days to go!

The Cure head the list for the #39 position, as they try for the final time to place in the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 list - but remember, this was the live version, not the "Wish" version.

Elsewhere, Placebo, Coldplay and Alanis Morissette are hoping to score second entries into the list, while The John Butler Trio have two very strong contenders at play.

There was a reason "Jagged Little Pill" was one of the top selling albums of the 90's, and that reason has made sure both Alanis Morissette's JJJ entries for 1995 made it to the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 list.

Once again, the jury vote has overruled the public vote, caning British India with two -1 votes. They opted instead for The Prodigy, who see themselves at #37 with their first entry into the Universal JJJ Hottest 100.

For the first time, the minus points have decided the winner of the round, as Primitive Radio Gods win the #36 position with the lowest ever score - just 9 points.

Coldplay and Miike Snow also scored 9 points, with PRG and CP tied for first place. The 2 x -1 points for both CP and Miike saw them move to third place, giving Radiohead the second place position. So close!!!

The vote was split between the jury and public, allowing the dark horse, "Killing Me Softly", to squeeze through with it's mega-hit status, claiming the #35 position - but only just - after a -1 vote brought it down to tie with Harvey Danger, but win on countback.

Lana Del Rey has pushed through, just barely, to win the #34 position of the Universal JJJ Hottest 100. It was Chris A's 2 points that got her through on countback, after a -1 vote brought her back to tie for first place.

2Pac ran away with the #33 position, but it was a totally different story for #32, as we have our first outright defeat of a song by minus votes. Previously we have had at least a tie that still would have lost on countback, but Spiller would have won by 1 point had it not been for 2 x -1 point votes, and a strong following of Mazzy Star by the Jury. Who saw that coming!?

It's been a little hard for the new kids to find their place in the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 list, especially against the dominant 90's, but Jamie xx have given 2015 a third song in the list.

Yes, that's right!!! It's less than a month to go until the current Universal JJJ Hottest 100 list becomes irrelevant as a new batch of songs join the honour. Oh well looks like we'll have to do it all over again...ha ha !!!!

This one is going to be tough!!! The first three years all rated 5 stars in my iTunes, not to mention another 4 star rating songs over the next 20 years, which haven't always missed out in favour of my 5's. (just an FYI...the #2 position have 19/23 songs that are rated 4 or 5 stars in my iTunes!!! How I'm picking 10 is going to be hard).

So Confide in the Constant Craving of going to the Carnival in err... Concrete Boots? Good luck everybody!

We have to go back to #38 to the last time the Jury and Public agreed on a song, but Kylie has won through with the single that broke her away from the SAW years forever. I'm not sure what sort of shock her being in the JJJ Hottest 100 would have been at the time, but with it just being the 2nd year, I guess there hadn't been enough establishment for it to be a thing.

Also, a shout out to "Carnival" and "If You Keep Losing Sleep", who together gobbled up 8 of the 13 one point votes!

ANTHEM FOR THE YEAR 2000

All that she wants, is another beercan;
The evidence of this, her devil's haircut, her semi-charmed life;
While everybody here wants you, she's still a sour girl;
Take what you want, and carry on.

With my own two hands, I build this fire;
Makes her a fast girl, to boil the pot;
But it's real love, that will make you happy;
She says, " it's all I want, but it can wait".

She will sing it out from her cherry lips,
I wonder if she remembers my number,
And when the song stops, because somebody's talking;
I guess that's when the Greek tragedy begins.

(I tried my best...ha ha!)

Being a chart site, you will expect a lot of hit singles make the grade for the Universal JJJ Hottest 100, and it was in the 90's where the two collided, but that's not to say non-hits such as the #29 runner-up, "Sour Girl", are not going to give them a run for their money.

We're only 8 positions away from the Top 20, which means we're only 8 positions away from upping the ante in the Universal Hottest 100 list. Don't get caught unprepared, because we will be asking for a Top 5 songs for a valid vote.

Also, minus votes will be worth 2 points. There has been a little confusion, but you don't have to use two of your minus quotas to make a vote, ONE minus vote is worth -2 points.

Check out the voting guide in the Games Related section of the Forum page for the upcoming contenders.

In the meantime, we're still looking for Top 3's of the following list of songs, that would be #28...

The votes were wide spread for the #27 position, and it ended with a rare case of the most 3 point votes only coming in second place. The Chemical Brothers pushed their way through to a second entry in the Universal JJJ Hottest 100 after they won the #65 position.

#26 proved to be a easier affair for Youssou N'Dour & Neneh Cherry with "7 Seconds" taking out the win. The round highlighted an extreme love/hate relationship the voters have for Coldplay's "Fix You", which I am often baffled as to why this song ranks so high against the rest of their catalogue to regularly re-enter the charts. While the Public vote had "Fix You" in front, the Jury took 5 of its 6 public vote points away. Terribly cruel!

25 days to go!

We've hit the final quarter of the Universal JJJ Hottest 100, and we still haven't heard anything from 2007, 2008 or 2011's countdowns! All three years have manage three runner-up placings, but never a win, so Urthboy, Kaiser Chiefs and Kimbra are up for the challenge to ensure all countdowns make the list.

Aww...for a second, the Yeah Yeah Yeah were making an amazing leap for the #25 position, but a few final Jury votes were No Doubt all the way, with "Just A Girl"'s hit status making it unbeatable.

Two #1 singles and a huge #2 hit make up the list for the #24 position, which means the 90's are looking good yet again. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be looking to better their runner-up position in the last round, and current darling of the Aus music scene, Flume, pops his head in for a shot.
