Every Australia Day (January 26), national broadcaster Triple J hold their Hottest 100 countdown where listeners vote for their favourite tracks of the previous year. Last Friday Triple J held their Hottest 100 of 2006 countdown, in which Augie March’s ‘One Crowded Hour’ was deemed the best song of last year by JJJ listeners.
But my personal fave came eighth, which was ‘Heart A Mess’ by Gotye. Not a bad effort really – just to get in the top 100 is no mean feat! Now Brendan Cook has put together a Tim Burton-esque animated clip for said song. The synopsis for the clip is that “a pied piper character walks the Earth, calling on its strange inhabitants to leave the wasted planet and follow him to a new world”. Dark and beautiful, just like the song.
