Australia Day & Triple J

26th of January

It's the most anticipated day of the year. Not only is it Australia Day, our national holiday to celebrate the day in which our country officially became a country back in 1901, but it is also the day in which nearly every Australian (not just in Australia but those living abroad) tunes in to listen to TRIPLE J's HOTTEST 100 COUNTDOWN. Most certainly the only one of its kind on the radio! What a day to celebrate our great nation: having a BBQ with mates with a beer listening to great music! We certainly are the lucky country!

2011 was another stellar year of great music! Here is the top 3 (in order)! 
#1 Gotye - being the favourite it was no surprise when number one was finally played and this powerful duo cranked up the vocals. Well deserved and personally my favourite to win. (P.S. He is amazing live!
#1 Gotye featuring Kimbra - Someone That I Used To Know 
#2 The Black Keys - how can you go past this epic song. The music video alone deserves a standing ovation. 
#2 The Black Keys - Lonely Boy
#3 Matt Corby - his rise to fame was from Australian Idol (he was runner up in the 5th season) but he certainly proved to us all that he was more than a pop culture reality tv star. Thank goodness! His vocals are pure and untainted and he's not too shabby with a guitar either. 
#3 Matt Corby - Brother

The full list can be found here: Triple J

How did you celebrate Australia Day and did you agree with the Top 10?
