Forum - Personal Charts: Your Special Occasion Charts - Benji's New Retro Hottest 100 thread Pt.3 2006 on

Part 2 was getting a bit long and hard to navigate so here is Part 3, covering the years 2006 to the present.

This is an update of a similar thread I did in 2015. I recently decided to update the lists I posted there, but instead of bumping that very messy thread, I decided to split it into three and make new threads containing the new lists.

Part 1 (1975-92) is here:
http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=50141

Part 2 (1993-2005) is here:
http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=50375

My original thread is here:
http://www.australian-charts.com/forum.asp?todo=viewthread&id=45426

In this thread, I will be posting my own personal Hottest 100 lists for each year from 2006 up to 2018 and probably beyond.

These lists are mainly about my personal taste. However, it will be a slight advantage to a song if it did well in the actual countdown.

Also, there will be more than 100 songs in each countdown, as I've been supplied with many invaluable links reminding me what songs were out in each year. I will post 101+ first, then 100-1.

Each list will contain the original Hottest 100 list in it. Note that on a few occasions* a song appeared in two Hottest 100s. I will only allow it in once.
(* the songs affected were listed in my old thread, see link above).

From 1999 onwards, I have been doing 200 songs per list, based mainly on the Hottest 100 voting lists which are available online (thanks thejuicer145!) - but there will be exceptions!

Apologies in advance if anyone disagrees with what year I put a song in. Sometimes I found it difficult to marry a year up if an album was released in one year when a single from it was released in a different year (usually the year after), also if a song didn't otherwise become big until a year after it's parent album was released. For the songs that were in the original Hottest 100s I've stuck with the year they appeared in even if their albums came out earlier. Happy if you make your own list and disagree with my definition.

I may make minor edits to these lists as I go along, if I find songs that I missed.

I won't be posting lists as frequently as in Part 1, as it's taking me much longer to re-order so many songs! It will probably be once a month until 2013 or so, then a bit longer after that.

Anyway, on to 2006 ...

The year of The Grates (with 4 songs in the actual Hottest 100 list), Lily Allen (4 songs) and also the Hilltop Hoods (with 5).

Overall I thought the actual list was much better than 2005's, and 61 of the actual Hottest 100 made my Top 100 as well.

(Late edit 18/6/2016: Added two songs I had forgotten to the list in the Top 100, dropped two of the lowest ranked songs out as a result and shuffled some others around a couple of spots)

Here are #200-101:

And now for the Top 100...

There weren't any songs from outside the actual Hottest 100 that made it in to my top 10 this time, but four made it into the Top 20.

At number 10 is Beth Ditto fronting The Gossip, with the powerful Standing In The Way Of Control - surprised it only made number 98 in the actual countdown.

Speaking of ditto, at #9 for the second year in a row is Sarah Blasko with the lovely {explain} (this is how it is spelt - at least that has qualified it for Jinxie's brackets QLVG game 12 years down the track)

Ooh Brian Molko, you bitch! At #8 is Placebo's acidic Song To Say Goodbye. I still love it.

Number seven is Little Birdy's sublime Come On Come On - my second favourite song of their and such a wonderfully crafted alt song.

At six is Black Fingernails Red Wine by Eskimo Joe. It's still hard to believe this is the same group that released 'Sweater' eight years earlier. This song was everywhere in 2006. Oh, and fingers are good for pointing, typing and putting in gloves for a start...

Number 5 is Crazy by Gnarls Barkly, another song that was everywhere in 2006, and rightfully so. The song and the film clip are works of art.

Jack White's side project, The Saboteurs (aka The Raconteurs) come in at four with Steady, As She Goes. This song still rocks and the lyrics sum up my relationship status at the time.

At #3 is the mighty Wolf Like Me by TV On The Radio. This song only came in at #63 of the actual countdown amazingly, but has since featured in Hottest 100 of all time lists, and deservedly so. It pumps me up everytime I hear it.

Runner up is Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. Commercial, Grey's Anatomy connections aside, it is still an amazing piece of music that gives me shivers everytime I hear it.

And #1 is Gotye's masterpiece, Heart's A Mess. Somehow this song eluded me during the year but when the amazing film clip came out the following January, it got me hook, line and sinker. It too deservedly features in Hottest 100 of All Time lists and sends shivers down my spine whenever I hear it.

Nice list. Like the high spots for The Knife (Marble House just missed my 100)! Not any top 10 crossover with my list but some top 20 (your #1, 3 and 18 are in my top 20).

For mine, I found this a hard year to figure out a top 100, alot of songs (IMHO) were similar in quality. #1 from this year probably wouldn't have made it there any other year and it moved about with #2 and #3 at various stages but well done to the Arctic Monkeys for eventually coming out on top and having my favourite album of the year as well. Shout out to Laura as well for (again IMHO) having the best Australian Post Rock album ever (and some good song titles for the latest Quick List Game).

Also, back in the day I voted for Over and Over by Hot Chip but actually meant to vote for Boy From School so justice is finally achieved 12 years on and I never thought I'd have Robbie Williams or Toni Collette in one of these lists but what can you do
