Greetings, Rose Quartz reader! Do you like music? WAIT. Bad question. Of course you like music, yeah? Better question: do you vomit babies’ tears when you hear Kings Of Leon’s Sex On Fire? ME TOO, OMFG. I just cast my vote in Triple J’s Hottest 100 Of All Time. You should do the same – together, we can affirm how fucking indie we are AND do absolutely nothing to stem the thousands of votes for those darned Followill lads. But at least we won’t be irritating hypocrites when we grumble about the outcome! And who doesn’t love making lists, right?

Download my top 10 songs of all time, RIGHT NOW:

Neutral Milk Hotel – Two Headed Boy
Hot Snakes – Let It Come
Elvis Costello – Waiting For The End Of The World
Gun Club – Sex Beat
Tom Waits – 16 Shells from a Thirty-Ought-Six
The Velvet Underground – Candy Says
The Feelies – Fa CĂ© La
Pixies – Wave Of Mutilation
Dead Kennedys – California Uber Alles
Radiohead – Paranoid Android

Triple J
’s an Australian radio station, but why not give it a smash anyway? Neutral Milk Hotel aren’t going to take the top 10 by storm by themselves, folks. Voting closes June 28.

Because everybody cares (very little) what I'll vote for, here 'tis:

New Order - Ceremony
Sonic Youth - Teen Age Riot
The Modern Lovers - Roadrunner
David Bowie - Life on Mars?
Yo La Tengo - Sugarcube
Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
The Go-Betweens - Streets of Your Town
The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
The Velvet Underground - I Found a Reason

Not much what a strict favourites list would look like - I'd only vote for songs with a really feasible chance of making the top 100. I may change my NMH song to Two Headed Boy out of solidarity though - two votes will do more than one.
