    For those of you that might not be familiar with it, Australian Radio Station Triple J conducts an annual music poll where you can vote for your favourite 10 songs of the year. They then count these down from around 10am - 7pm on Australia Day (Public Holiday - 26th Jan). It gets streamed around the world, and receives the most votes of any music poll in the world.

    Go check it out if you like your music not to be pop!

    Vote confirmed: woohoo! :D

    Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
    Brandon Flowers - Crossfire
    Chase & Status - End Credits {Ft. Plan B}
    Duck Sauce - Barbara Streisand
    Gorillaz - Stylo {Ft. Bobby Womack and Mos Def}
    Hot Chip - One Life Stand
    Mark Ronson & The Business Intl - Bang Bang Bang {Ft. Q-Tip & MNDR}
    Massive Attack - Paradise Circus
    Plan B - Stay Too Long

    I also liked The xx - 'Islands', and a couple of Mumford tracks, but I guess they were technically 2009.
    Was actually surprised at how many (the majority?) I'd never heard. Off to check out the Tron/DaftPunk sountrack now. :)

    It's because our government can afford to spend millions of dollars on fireworks displays rather than 'waste' that money funding schools and hospitals.
