DISCUSSION FORUM

Hello all! If you have been an active member of the chatroom in recent weeks you would be aware that I would be doing a broadcast of my Mid Decade Chart in early next year! For those completely out of sync with current events, the end of 2014 marks halfway through the 2010s decade and what better to celebrate an excellent 5 years of music but with an exciting countdown!

Before I continue, I would like to propose the evenings of Sunday the 4th and Monday the 5th if January for the countdown. Broadcasting would start from 7pm each evening. Please let me know either by commenting, in chat or memo if you can join. Otherwise, the 2nd and 3rd is also possible, or if absolutely necessary, we can do the following weekend.

Why do I ask? Well, the more the merrier of course! And if my personal charts are anything to go by, there will definitely be something for everyone! (Except for billbeast...and maybe you too crazychris, sorry).

*Christian songs have been removed to help the broadcast be a bit more user-friendly while it does unfortunately make my list slightly less authentic. This is a fair evalution that I have considered and decided for myself.

More details to come, hope to see you there!
Aww. Does that mean you'll be skipping the fabtastic "Alive" by Hillsong Young & Free?
Technically that may not be classified a Christian song for me because it charted...
This should be very interesting.
Well, I have received no objections so the countdown is officially on Sunday the 4th covering #100 to #51 and Monday the 5th broadcasting #50 to #1. The countdown will begin from 7pm but the broadcast will commence from 6:30 with a playlist featuring an assortment of songs that missed out, my favourite album tracks of the decade so far and some classic Aus Charts favourites of the past 5 years!

The broadcast will be done on Spotify. If you are unsure of how this will work, I will post some instructions on the day.

See you soon! Also got a quiz coming so stay tuned
SCHEDULE CHANGE

I have been asked to instead do the broadcast this Saturday the 3rd from 3pm to 7pm because apparently this weekend's ARIA chart will be terrible. My broadcast will be in place of the normal ARIA broadcast. This Saturday will broadcast #100 to #51 and this Sunday the 4th will finish the countdown (#51 to #1) from 7pm. Let me know if you are not a fan of this change - I am not 100% sure of this, but will make a final confirmation soon.


Meanwhile, I have made a quiz! NOTE - All songs mentioned in this quiz DOES NOT IMPLY that they will be in the countdown.


Question 1: - (14 marks total, one mark each)
The following 15 artists all have 3 or more entries in the countdown! An impressive feat – but is it due to their high quality of music, or my dependable ability to stan any promising artist? Anyhow, a selection of 3 songs from each artist has been pitted against each other. Pick which song will be the highest for each artist!

A. Andreas Moe
Collecting Sunlight vs. Fade Into Darkness vs. Long Time

B. Avicii
Fade Into Darkness vs. Levels vs. Wake Me Up

C. Bastille
Of The Night vs. Pompeii vs. Things We Lost In The Fire

D. Birds of Tokyo
Circles vs. Lanterns vs. Wild At Heart

E. Boy & Bear
Milk & Sticks vs. Part Time Believer vs. Southern Sun

F. Calvin Harris
Thinking About You vs. Under Control vs. We’ll Be Coming Back

G. Coldplay
Charlie Brown vs. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall vs. Magic

H. Ed Sheeran
Small Bump vs. The A Team vs. Give Me Love

I. Foster the People
Call It What You Want vs. Coming of Age vs. Helena Beat

J. Imagine Dragons
It’s Time vs. On Top of the World vs. Radioactive

K. One Direction
Kiss You vs. One Thing vs. What Makes You Beautiful

L. SAFIA
Paranoia, Ghosts and Other Sounds vs. Take Me Over vs. You Are The One

M. Swedish House Mafia
Greyhound vs. Miami 2 Ibiza vs. One (Your Name)

N. 360
Just Got Started vs. Run Alone vs. Throw It Away


Question 2: - (4 marks)
Out of the above artists, who do you think has the most entries?


Question 3: - (4 marks)
Similarly, one high-performing artist (from the same list of 14 artists) also has 2 entries in my top 10! Who do you think it is?


Question 4: - (2 marks + 3 marks = 5 marks total)

a) What will be the highest JJJ Hot 100 #1?
A. Angus & Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane
B. Gotye - Somebody That I Used To Know
C. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Thrift Shop
D. Vance Joy - Riptide
E. [Assuming] Peking Duk - High


b) What will the highest ARIA End of Year #1 be?
A. Eminem - Love The Way You Lie
B. LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem
C. Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
D. Katy Perry - Roar
E. Pharrell Williams - Happy
F. An ARIA End of Year #1 will not appear


Question 5: - (4 marks)
What will be my #1 track of 2014?

A. Clean Bandit – Rather Be
B. Coldplay – Magic
C. The Kite String Tangle – Arcadia
D. Peking Duk – Take Me Over


Question 6: - (5 marks + 5 marks = 10 marks total)
This decade so far has definitely been characterised by many forms of dance music, and this music style will definitely make an impact in this countdown!

a) What percentage (%) of the top 100 will be dance songs?

A. 0-20% (0 to 20 songs)
B. 21-40%
C. 41-60%
D. 61-80%
E. 81-100% (God help us if this was correct)


b) How about the top 10? Will my top 10 be proportionate to the top 100? How many dance songs will be in the top 10?

A. 0-20% (0 to 2 songs)
B. 21-40% (2-4 songs)
C. 41-60% (4-6 songs)
D. 61-80% (6-8 songs)
E. 81-100% (8-10 songs)


Question 7: - (5 marks)
I will sadly admit that I am a sucker for Armin things, and have charted many of them during the past few years. Which will be the highest Armin thing in the countdown?

A. Armin van Buuren – This Is What It Feels Like
B. Calvin Harris – Summer
C. Calvin Harris – Under Control
D. Sebastian Ingrosso & Tommy Trash - Reload
E. Tiesto – Red Lights


Question 8: - (5 marks)
What will be the highest artist with only 1 entry?

A. Deadmau5 – The Veldt
B. Django Django – Default
C. Flight Facilities – Clair de Lune
D. Panic! At The Disco – Ready To Go (Get Me Out Of My Mind)
E. Peking Duk – Take Me Over


Question 9: - (5 marks)
I don’t have any Wildcards in this countdown, but Hillsong Young & Free’s “Alive” – which IS in the countdown – would probably be the closest to being one. Where do you think it will land?

A. Between #1 - #20
B. #21 - #40
C. #41 - #60
D. #61 - #80
E. #81 - #100


Question 10: - (4 marks)
Finally, what do you think the #1 will be?


Either post or memo your answers to be by 2pm Saturday the 3rd

Thank you to LIFTER500 who has had a good shot at the quiz so far! The rest of you have 48 hours to finish it!
Additional thank yous to Hijinx and Zacco for doing the quiz! It'd be great to just have a few more people!

A gentle reminder that the broadcast starts at 2:30 tomorrow, with the official countdown commencing at 3pm. My broadcast will be in place of the normal ARIA broadcast (because it is expected to be pretty boring and samey). Hope to see you there!

[Unlucky] #101 – SOME NIGHTS – Fun.

(#21 of 2012)

Had periods where I was a little sick of it, but a great song that has aged well from Fun.. Very unlucky to miss out, this area was by far the closest in the whole chart.

There’s something just really endearing about this. I’ve always liked Phillip Phillips but he resonated especially well with this one.

#98 – CALL ME MAYBE – Carly Rae Jepsen

Simply put, this is a darn good pop song. It has aged quite well for me, much better than I expected and it’s always a bit of fun whenever I hear it.

Whoooo! First Ed Sheeran song of the countdown! This is a great return to form even though I still quite like ‘Sing’ and ‘Don’t.’

#96 – THINKING ABOUT YOU – Calvin Harris (feat. Ayah Marar)

(#27 of 2013)

One of his more classy tracks for sure. The production continues to be a highlight and really shines in this effort. This track also keeps getting better and better the more I listen to it, don’t be surprised to see it climbing the 2013 EOY chart in future years.

Great return for Boy & Bear! Expect them to do very well in this countdown. I like how this one is especially laid back. The video features them in snowy weather though? That still confuses me.

#89 – THROW IT AWAY – 360 (feat. Josh Pyke)

An excellent follow-up to “Just Got Started” proved to be even better than the former. I love the casual piano chords and Josh Pyke’s chorus is very smooth.

#88 – HAPPINESS – Alexis Jordan

(#21 of 2011)

Okay so I was kinda wrong when I said deadmau5 only had 1 entry here. This is still a great song with strong vocals from Alexis and the (ofc) classy production from the mau5. I wonder if we’ll hear of Alexis ever again.

(#13 of 2014)

#86 – HOLLYWOOD – Michael Buble

(#20 of 2011)

A fantastic Adult Contemporary song that I also stumbled up around the same time “Happiness” came out. I did like “Haven’t Met You Yet” but upon discovering his next single, this one proved to heaps of fun and ultimately a lot better. A shame I didn’t like his 2013 output as much.

#81 – OCEAN – Andreas Moe

(#12 of 2014)

Our first Andreas Moe entry! This is the single from his 3rd EP, released in 2014. It has been fascinating tracking his career so far, and this offering is a little more folky, less singer-songwriter and less pop than his previous stuff.

#80 – SPECTRUM – Zedd (feat. Matthew Koma)

(#16 AUS/NZ songs)

This is very nostalgic for me because this was played a lot during my holiday to New Zealand. This is a really nice folk track in a different way.

#53 – IT’S TIME – Imagine Dragons

(#12 of 2012)

Great debut track for Imagine Dragons. Great production I find, even though it is admittedly OTT. My story of how I got into ID is already well documented on the site, I don’t think I need to go into it here

#52 – THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE – Bastille

(#12 of 2013)

Awesome track from Bastille! The first one to appear. This was my favourite of theirs for a while but has slipped back a little to 2 other songs of theirs.

Awesome list so far! I'm glad to see #s 101 100 98 97 95 94 93 91 90 89 88 85 84 83 82 80 79 78 77 76 75 73 72 68 67 65 64 63 62 60 58 57 56 55 53 & especially 51!

Due to convenience for everyone, there is another schedule change for tomorrow's broadcast of #50 to #1. The countdown will begin at 6pm instead for an earlier estimated finishing time of 9:30-10pm. Hope to see you there again!
I must say, your countdown started awesomely with Some Nights + Team. The following tracks have made pleasing appearances: 98, 87, 94, 93, 91, 90, 88, 86, 85, 77, 75, 72, 71, 69, 68, 67, 66, 64, 63, 62, 60, 59, 57 and 53. Surprised to see Happiness make the cut. I'm looking forward to the conclusion of the chart. I have my thoughts on what is going to be number one, but I won't worry about that for now
Broadcast is up! Same link as before, but I'll post again:

2. Click "Follow"
3. You then need to close the Web Player and Open Spotify on your computer as a separate application.
4. Click on "Anton's Mid-Decade Broadcast" under the Playlists, it will now appear on this section because you have already 'followed' it.

#47 – OF THE NIGHT – Bastille

Super cool and very interesting and unique from Bastille! They’ve kinda been doing a lot of weird remixes and releasing random stuff lately but kudos for trying! Hopefully they’ve got more awesome stuff like this up their sleeve.

#46 – RADIOACTIVE – Imagine Dragons

(#9 of 2013)

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Just a year ago, this song was #1 of 2013 and would have been sitting comfortably in the top 20…only for 2013 to be completely wrecked by overplay with many songs tumbling the further 2014 progressed. This is still top 50 though! And this marks the highest Imagine Dragon track.

#45 – HELENA BEAT – Foster The People

(#15 of 2011)

Like I mentioned with “Houdini,” this really fascinates me. I have lately began noticing the interesting layering of the song, and I love how everything comes together in the final chorus. This of course isn’t without its own cool sound effects throughout!

#44 – POMPEII – Bastille

(#8 of 2013)

Awesome song and pretty unique! My introduction to Bastille landed with this, which also debuted straight at #1 for me. This is Bastille’s top song! In the battle of Bastille vs. Imagine Dragons, it turns out the Bastille gets the last laugh after super-stanning ID big time in 2013.

#42 – COMING OF AGE – Foster The People

(#5 of 2014)

This was a great return for Foster The People with their 2nd album! Unfortunately, this is their only “Supermodel” entry. I really do think their other songs have been really cool and interesting, but I just haven’t been able to vibe on them like I do with their “Torches” singles.

Hmmm. I personally hadn’t heard this for a long time before making this, but I still really enjoy this. This is nowhere near as much as I enjoyed it but it is still a solid effort from them. Unfortunately I don’t expect me to like any of their future songs anymore 

#26 – FADE INTO DARKNESS – Avicii (feat. Andreas Moe)

This is such a fantastic ballad by New Empire. It really outshines “One Heart/Million Voices” in my opinion, and Jeremy’s voice suits this style much better than upbeat tracks.

#22 – ALIVE – Hillsong Young & Free

(#1 of 2013)
(#6 AUS/NZ songs)

It trolled the ARIA chart, so it can troll here right? Despite peaking at only #4 and dropping like a rock weeks after, this has grown on me significantly over the past year and has become one of my favourite Christian tracks of the decade. Also, it has been rather ubiquitous in many places I’ve been to last year.

Also, this is the highest 2013 song Fairly low indeed, although they will have consolation that it had the most entries in the countdown with 29.

#17 – CIRCLES – Birds of Tokyo

(#9 of 2011)
(#4 AUS/NZ songs)

This thought sudden struck me: if it wasn’t the success of this single, I would have never loved Birds of Tokyo as much as I did. I loved Plans, but Wild At Heart didn’t impact much. When this became the next single, this was an instant hit, and Wild At Heart managed to hit #1 afterwards thanks to renewed interested in Birds of Tokyo from this song. That said, this is brilliant and one of their best by far.

Also, we’re almost done 2014 and we finished 2013 ages ago, but still 8 songs from 2011 to go!

*SPECIAL MENTION*

I really couldn't go without playing:

#2.5 - FEEL IT IN YOUR HEART - Abandon

Special mention really must go to this song as it held the #1 spot for most of the decade (from late 2011) until mid-2014 where I finally decided to change the #1 spot to the current #1 that is there now. So while Christian songs have been excluded, this definitely needs a mention!

I haven't really checked out your charts before but this was a pretty good countdown. I particularly agree with the Foster The People comments.
Not a massive shock to see DYWC at the top, and due to what was directly behind it I'm very happy that it's there. Good to see Rather Be just sneak into the top 20, likewise Lorde into the top 100, and nice appearances for Avicii (Levels), BOT (Wild At Heart), JT, Rudimental, Lady A (with what is probably my favourite song in the whole chart), Jebediah, Drake, Alexis Jordan (a close second behind Lady A) and Ed Sheeran (TOL) too. Very nice chart!
