Forum - Other Charts: Australia - Non ARIA - Triple J Hottest 100 2017 - voting + predictions

We officially have a date so it's time to open this thread!


Or if you cannot open the link, here are the important dates:
Tues 12 Dec 2017: Voting opens
Mon 22 Jan 2018: Voting closes
Fri 26 Jan 2018: Australia Day
Sat 27 Jan 2018: Hottest 100
Sun 28 Jan 2018: Hottest 200

There were 60,000+ responses to triple j's survey earlier in the year and the majority supported moving the date.

To go back to the main point of this thread though, gooooo Gang Of Youths, Kendrick, Lorde!
Bring it on!!!

Still unsure about who will come out tops. Hopefully Gang Of Youths will come close.

Now to get my shortlist for the year sorted...
Woot woot etc.
Do we think the date change will have any impact on the makeup of the H100? Will a certain demographic boycott due to "pc meddling"? Will the once a year listeners not vote as much because it doesn't coincide with their Aus day BBQ, and will this have a significant impact on the songs and their possies.
It might drive away some casual listeners, or those who think it is political correctness gone mad . I'd be surprised if the vote is over the 2mil mark this year but it may go close.

My first thought is that those songs that are on high rotation on other stations (Nova etc) might do worse off as they would normally be inflated by non Triple J listeners who are most likely to be put off.

Won't know until the 27th in any case

It's funny because I've been of the view that triple j has already slid into its own niche in that regard. After all, this year we had a huge #6 finish for a Like A Version, beating out huge commercial hits from Flume, Illy & Peking Duk. The actual top 5 featured 3 songs that had largely been ignored (at that point) by commercial radio. The countdown also favours bands who have little to no presence in the pop charts, Violent Soho had 5 entries, none of which hit the singles chart before or after, and every single Sticky Fingers song on the poll made the top 200, only 1 of which barely cracked the top 100 charts. And either way this year, it looks like Gang Of Youths will do incredibly well, despite being a band that has never had a charting single. Mind you, some of this de-syncing with the charts could have something to do with the charts being pre-meditated by Spotify playlists, but that's another discussion that I can't really analyse until I see how Bliss N Eso & Vance Joy fair here
I was more thinking those huge commercial hits and also in particular from last year, Catch 22, One Love and Hold Up get an advantage from the casual listener that rocks up to a hottest 100 party that a mate is having and throws in votes for the songs they know (and not listening to Triple J these are the only ones). As these are the people that might not vote now, these type of songs might not do as well and the niche songs you mention might do better.

Impossible to know for sure but it is a theory

I feel like my vote this year won't be as strong as the previous four years but I'm still looking forward to the countdown as always.

I do love that they've changed the date and listened to what many of their listeners want. It's a shame I won't be at home on that weekend so I may miss listening to the Hottest 100
Yeah I get what you mean (though I wouldn't put Beyonce's latest album with that, I don't think that song is any more commercially friendly than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs song it interpolates) but I do think it balances out as more fair nowadays. After all, that Drake song was near-inescapably huge, but it still got beaten out by Montaigne, Cub Sport, Smithies, Gretta Ray etc. It's hard for the hits not to poll decently since they turn up everywhere; you're considerably more likely to hear a Vance Joy song out at the shops than you are an Ecca Vandal song after all.

A worthwhile anecdote from this is that when "Thrift Shop" took the top spot, people bemoaned that it was just because of Nova listeners or something, but I feel they hadn't considered just how big the song was for triple j fans. As someone who was counting/examining social media votes that year, I noticed "Thrift Shop" had a surprisingly wide market reach. It wasn't just getting lumped in with the other hits, but it was sharing votes with alt-J, Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala, Beach House, Grimes, Flume, everything really.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm just as eager to see how this might impact the countdown, and look forward to studying trends within it to see how the internal meta-game changes. Either way I reckon we're in for a good year, I can pretty safely say that The Rubens aren't gonna win again
Never rule anything out Hijinx

(although you're right)
I think what I'm looking forward to is who fills the gaps that are being left by a lot of the chart regulars having quiet years. Since I don't think we'll be seeing any Violent Soho, Sticky Fingers, Hilltop Hoods, Illy (), SAFIA and the like, I feel like it's a great time to shine for some lesser known Aus acts.
Good point.

Wouldn't Illy be 9 years in a row if he had a song this year? Maybe they throw Oh My onto the list to get him there.

I reckon Hilltop Hoods will boost 21 Grams by Thundamentals up the listing as well.

My hopes are that acts like Stella Donelly, Ocean Alley, Middle Kids, Ruby Fields, Heaps Good Friends, Hatchie and Confidence Man can fill the gaps this year but we'll see.
Yep, Illy's run from 2009-2016 is the 2nd longest ever, behind The Living End's 10 year run. I thought he might do something similar to Tightrope and release a new single version of something to get in, but he hasn't so the only eligible track he has is his feature on Kuren's new song.

You're right about that Thundamentals track, forgot about that one.
A few movers on the Sportsbet odds

Gang of Youths - The Deepest Sighs, The Frankest Shadows 26/1 - 5/1
Gang of Youths - Let Me Down Easy 51/1 - 11/1
Angus and Julia Stone - Chateau 64/1 - 7/1
Peking Duk - Let You Down 51/1 - 11/1

And some new entries up the pointy end

Pnau - Go Bang 15/1
Alex the Astronaut - Not Worth Hiding 41/1

Not offering odds on What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out, which is odd as I'd say it is likely to be higher that Let Me Down Easy (and maybe even Deepest Sighs)
I plan on voting for WCIDITFGO but I think it'll be the lowest of the three, partly because it's so old and the other two have been consistently doing better on iTunes. I actually wonder if their Like A Version could beat it as well, that's harder to determine.
I (probably) will vote for it as well. Certainly it is a much better proposition to get #1 than Kasabian at 26/1.

I hope their LAV does well as also as it is a great cover of one of my favourite songs, probably won't vote for it as I tend to only vote for one song per band and not LAV (might break both rules this year)

Do we think Smith St's album will get many entries? It was one of my favourite albums this year but released quite early so not sure how it will poll.
I reckon Birthdays is a pretty good shout
I can see Shine getting in as well.
Bring it on!

Love the countdown and this will be the eighth year I've voted.

Although I would of preferred for it to stay on Australia Day I will be tuning in regardless! Moving it 24 hours back does seem to smack of tokenism though.

I've pretty sure who I'll vote for but who knows, it may change!

I do listen to Triple J a lot more nowadays though!
I'm down for the change, but I also remember being annoyed that they didn't keep in sync with the Big Day Out Sydney day; they were on the same day for around 5 years in the late 90s-00s!

Can't wait to vote. I can see it becoming a grudge match with HUMBLE. trying to avenge King Kunta's loss, but falling short against Lorde and Gang Of Youths. Which is mostly annoying since Lorde and GOY would be worthy winners, as opposed to who Kendrick lost to last time
Super bored so I thought I’d put a quick little top 20 together before voting opens, tear it to shreds if you think I’m off the mark, I’ve got a bet with a friend that I must win!

8.Lay It On Me – Vance Joy
9.Young Dumb & Broke – Khalid
10.Don’t Leave – Snakehips & MØ
11.Perfect Places – Lorde
12.Go Bang – PNAU
13.Maybe It’s My First Time – Meg Mac
14.What Can I Do If the Fire Goes Out? – GOY
15.Murder to the Mind – Tash Sultana
16.Slide – Calvin Harris
17.Weekends – Amy Shark
18.Passionfruit – Drake
19.Birthdays – Smith Street
20.Moments – Bliss N Eso

Baker Boy - Marryuna {Ft. Yirrmal}
xx, The - Say Something Loving
Vera Blue - Mended
Ecca Vandal - Broke Days, Party Nights
Kite String Tangle, The - The Prize {Ft. Bridgette Amofah}
Are Gang of Youths really that strong and have that big a fan base to land 3 songs in the top 10?

Having a look at the warm 100 link and some big surprises and not what I was expecting.

What do others think?

After going to the London Grammar concert a few months back I thought they would be in strong shape and a definite in the top 100 but they aren't even in it which surprised me. I also expected Lorde and Haim to be doing better. Same with altJ. I also thought Jax Jones, Mackelmore and Snakehips might have had a bit of support this year.
I'm moderately skeptical of their data crawl because I've counted nearly twice as many votes, so they must not be catching posts properly.

(And yeah, GOY boys gonna shred this year)
Are you counting again Hijinx? Are you posting updates on Twitter?
Yeah, just haven't been spamming it hard on my feed as I have a lot more non-music followers than I did a year ago

Just like 2012, 2013 and 2016, I am using my * point system as a process of elimination in determining my votes.

so I finally did a vote after over a month of trying to cut down my 22 song shortlist. 8 Aussie tracks which I think is a record, congrats to New Zealand, Sweden and United Kingdom for the non-Australian nationalities represented. Also nine out of ten songs have female vocals

Alison Wonderland - Happy Place
Fluir - Only One
George Maple - Kryptonite
KLP - Changes
Lorde - Green Light
Peking Duk & AlunaGeorge - Fake Magic
The Kite String Tangle - The Prize
Touch Sensitive - Lay Down
Tove Lo - Disco Tits
Vera Blue - Lady Powers

these were cut:

Lorde - Writer In The Dark
Amber Mark - Heatwave
Asgeir - Stardust
Banoffee - Ripe
Confidence Man - Better Sit Down Boy
Hatchie - Sure
Jamiroquai - Automaton
Maggie Rogers - Split Stones
Meg Mac - Low Blows
Sofi Tukker - Best Friend
Touch Sensitive - No Other High
Yumi Zouma - Depths (Pt. I)
As per usual I look for my favourites that are lingering around the #100 position based on those doing a prediction by counting hashtags on scoial media (thanks Hijinx, Warmest 100 & the Bean counter) and I vote for these songs as I would rather see them in the Hottest 100 than I care about what gets #1 so my logic is every vote helps so anything that is predicted top 50 I rule out of my votes even if I love the song. I also favour artists who haven't featured in the Hottest 100 previously over artists that have featured. This year I managed to get my shortlist down to a decent number and only needed to cull a few songs. So my votes for this years Hottest 100 went to:

you don't know me - Jax Jones
slide - Calvin Harris
rooting for you - London Grammar
big for your boots - Stormzy
cola - CamelPhat
don't leave - Snakehips/M0
mask off - Future
life goes on - E^st
rockstar - Post Malone
xo tour lif3 - Lil Uzi Vert

Lorde and Kendrick would rank up there in my favourites but they look like guarantees so I ruled them out. Ubu and Passionfruit were also ruled out.

Sofi Tukker &.Martin Solveig don't look like they will make the top 200 so I ruled them out to help those songs lingering around the #100 position.

The XX I love but they have featured previously and I reckon stand a decent chance to still make the top 100. I ruled Haim, altJ, Tash Sultana and Vallis Alps for pretty much the same reasons.

Portugal and Khalid could have scored my vote too but they look like definites in the top 100 hence why they were also ruled out of my votes.

Would be awesome if all the songs I mention or refer to in this post makes the Hottest 100 next weekend. It would make for an enjoyable countdown.

I have my grandma's 90th birthday lunch next Saturday so thank you to whoever posts updates of the countdown on here as I will be following from my phone as I won't be able to listen live.
I got my vote in on Friday night!

Amber Mark - Heatwave
Arcade Fire - Everything Now
CamelPhat & Elderbrook - Cola
Cloud Control - Treetops
Cub Sport - Chasin'
Halsey - Bad At Love
Heaps Good Friends - Olympic Sneakers
Jax Jones - Instruction
Jax Jones - You Don't Know Me
N.E.R.D. & Future - 1000

bad luck to Let Me Down Easy, Lemon To A Knife Fight and Automaton which all JUST missed out

Record number of votes (2,386,133). So much for the change in date bringing it down.
Naturally the top of the Facebook post has already hit both tinfoil touchstones 'err yeah PROVE IT' and 'derp actually there was never an organised boycott'
Hi Hijinx
Are you going to post your predictions this year for top 10? Is there any other song close to knocking off HUMBLE at this stage. I am rooting for Portugal. The Man - Feel It Still... do you think it will have a chance at top 10? :/
haha I was making my prediction just as you posted that, which I tweeted https://twitter.com/LOOFRunDry/status/955773508885258240

- You’ll hear 65 Australian songs in this year’s Hottest 100 – that’s one down from last year’s record breaking year of 66 Australian songs.
- 2017 is a globetrotting year, with songs from 10 different countries represented (including feature artists).
- There are 26 artists appearing in the Hottest 100 for the very first time (23 last year).
- There are 5 songs that we first discovered on triple j Unearthed, in 2017, in this year’s countdown.
- There are 8 artists appearing for a third time in an annual Hottest 100 countdown.

Trying to figure out what countries are represented but can't figure out the last one. Pretty much locks I've got:
New Zealand (Lorde)
Canada (Drake)
Sweden (Icona Pop)
Ireland (Gavin James)
Scotland (Calvin Harris)
Barbados (Rihanna)

Then the only others I can think/know of are:
Germany (Milky Chance)
MØ (Denmark)

Anyone know of any obvious ones that I'm missing?
Maybe Odette is considered South African??

Don't see Milky Chance getting in and unlikely MO but maybe (with Snakehips).
Yeah not sure about her citizenship but you'd think they'd classify her as English for simplicity.

I agree, don't rate their chances highly but can't think of anyone else, unless there's someone randomly from Wales that I thought was English haha
As far as classification goes, Scotland is considered UK, so therefore counts as one entity.

AUS, USA & UK are no-brainers - and the rest of your predictions (Canada, NZ, Sweden, Ireland & Barbados) seem fairly locked in.

The only other ones I can think of are Lorenzo Senni (Italy), Perturbator (France) and MØ (Denmark).
ftr triple j always separate them, as they considered Catfish Welsh last year.
And perhaps if Mura Masa makes it then he's technically from Guernsey so there's another one.
I'm sensing that there's going to be a higher concentration of Australian artists in the Top 20 than there's ever been before - somewhat in contrast to the ARIA YE Chart. Not sure if anyone's done a comparison, but I'm sure there's been a significant decrease in Australian acts not just on the YE Chart, but in the charts throughout 2017 in general...
In regards to international artists featuring in the countdown there is a good chance it will be M0 and the reason I say that is because in the predicted Bean Countdown it looks like Don't Leave has been recorded as two different entries as it is at #144 and again at #167. If you combine the two it should rank at #42 according to his vote counting. Not sure how there is an error there but I noticed it as it was one of the 10 songs I voted for and then I noticed it again.
It's definitely a valid contender, though I wouldn't say it's for that reason. That seems like a clerical error, I counted the song at #140 myself with a distinct lack of a second version
Maybe Gang of Youths is considered Australian/Korean as one of the members is from South Korea.
I didn't even think about boycotting the countdown due to the date change, I've listened to it for years and just because it moved one day it doesn't mean I have to throw the toys out of the pram
Bring on tomorrow!

Amy Shark - Weekends
Baker Boy - Cloud 9 (featuring Kian) (seriously don't be surprised if this pops up along with Marryuna)
