The Top 100 Most Played Songs On Aussy Radio

Aircheck, a radio monitoring system in the land down under, put a list of the top 100 most played songs in the land down under for 2013, and the top 10 looks something like this:

1-Birds Of Tokyo, Lanterns (17,419 plays)

2-Passenger, Let Her Go (17,376)

3-Pink feat. Nate Ruess, Just Give Me A Reason (16,131)

4-Bastille, Pompeii (15,664)

5-The Lumineers, Hey Ho (14,786)

6-Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams, Get Lucky (14,697)

7-Avicii, Wake Me Up (14,639)

8-Robin Thicke feat. TI & Pharrell, Blurred Lines (14,631)

9-Bruno Mars, When I Was Your Man (13,582)

10-Vance Joy, Riptide (13,417)

While most are to be suspected (Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, Bruno Mars), I have to say that it appears the Aussies have taken a lot more of a likening to the quiet indie sound of late. Case in point, The Lumineers, Passenger and Birds of Tokyo all did well on the list.

Something else I thought was encouraging was that a homegrown talent topped the list. It can only be good when domestic culture is accepted by it’s nation.
