The J's Hottest 100 of the last 20 Years

Over the Queens Birthday long weekend  the J's played their hottest 100 of the last 20 years as voted by Australian listeners. This was a bright spot in an otherwise dreary and slow long weekend spent at work with a cold while the boy was away fishing. The rain has been on and off just enough to annoy (come on Brisbane thought this is the dry season!) and with so much going on in the city the flow at work has been more of a drizzle. Hence over two days I found solitude in some musical goodness and while there were a few surprises along the way there were so many great tracks that reminded me of good times, fun times, heartbreak and more than a little teen angst.

The Top 10

1: Oasis – Wonderwall (1995)
2: The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army (2003)
3: Jeff Buckley – Last Goodbye (1995)
4: Hilltop Hoods – The Nosebleed Section (2003)
5: The Verve – Bitter Sweet Symphony (1997)
6: Foo Fighters – Everlong (1997)
7: The Killers – Mr. Brightside (2004)
8: Powderfinger – These Days (1999)
9: Gotye – Somebody That I Used to Know {Ft. Kimbra} (2011)
10: Powderfinger – My Happiness (2000)
