Can ‘Any Other Song’ challenge Gotye in the Hottest 100 countdown?

Voting for triple j’s Hottest 100 is officially open, and according to BetChoice.com Gotye’s ubiquitous single Somebody That I Used To Know is already leading the field with odds of 1.13 ahead of “Any Other Song” at 5.50.

While it is difficult to imagine “Any Other Song” taking out the annual poll in January, The Jezabels, The Wombats and 360 are all strong contenders for top ten places, having received huge airplay on the j’s throughout 2011.

We also suspect that The Living End’s cover of The Wiggles’ 1994 classic Hot Potato will fill the “novelty song” spot in the top twenty, Owl Eyes’ ‘Like A Version’ of Pumped Up Kicks will sneak in via people’s unquenchable desire to vote for anything by Foster The People, there’ll be a few sweary tunes and that at least eight out of the ten shortlisted Boy And Bear songs will make the final cut.

Voting closes on Monday 16th January – so head on over to triple j and start clicking.
