Triple J's Hottest 100 of All Time

I voted, much like everyone else, for songs that I lived my life to. As such, my list isnt exactly a collection of master-pieces. But it is my list nonetheless. I voted for:

Björk - Hyperballad
Roxette - Fading Like A Flower
Sigur Rós - Glósóli
Sigur Rós - HoppÌpolla
Meat Loaf - I'd Do Anything For Love (but I Won't Do That)
Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal
The Beatles - A Day in the Life (#24)
Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb (#53)
Underworld - Born Slippy (#65)
UNKLE - Lonely Soul
It was a great countdown, but found myself pretty disinterested in the top 10. I've alway been of the view that Nirvana (#1, 40 & 74) is overrated. And I've always despised Jeff Buckley (#3, 7, 56, 69). But I respect that a lot of people love them, and thus cant rant on too much. And Foo Fighters? (#9). Surpising.

I could go on, at length, about each of the songs. I could spend many hours discussing why I think certain songs below, and why other songs do not belong in the list. But that's stuff I'd rather discuss over a cup of coffee or such. Instead, I shall simply use some colour coding on the list below to make my views known.

Let it be known though that I respect that this was a open vote. I am simply expressing my view here. It is my journal, after all :-)

Key
Plain Black - I have nothing against these tracks. I do not love, or hate them.
Black and Bold
- I approve enough of these tracks to have actually voted for them, if I could have.
Red - I do not approve of these tracks being on the list. I don't hate them, but don't think they are worthy.
Red and Bold - I actually hate these tracks. I do not see their appeal. At all.
Blue and Bold - I voted for that track.
