The 2010 Hottest 100 was the eighteenth annual Hottest 100 countdown since the change of the format which allowed only songs from the previous year to be voted for.
The countdown took place in January of 2011 and featured a mixture of 65 different artists. Over 1,260,000 votes, from 152 different countries, were counted in the countdown.
Angus & Julia Stone's 'Big Jet Plane' marks the first time since The Cranberries in 1994 that female vocals featured in the top song. It also marks the first time since 1996 that a female was involved with the winning song.
Incidentally, the song had been released the previous year by Angus Stone's solo project 'Lady Of The Sunshine' on the album ' Smoking Gun'. The song is almost identical to the charting version by Angus & Julia Stone, except for the obvious addition of Julia Stone's vocals.
Little Red became the fifth artist who was Unearthed by Triple J to achieve the #2 position. The then-record high was set in 1999 by Killing Heidi and was again equalled by Grinspoon in 2002, Missy Higgins in 2004 and Art vs. Science in 2009. The record was broken however, when Vance Joy reached #1 with 'Riptide' in 2013.
At #3, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool charted with their song 'Dance The Way I Feel'. On August 20th, 2010, almost one year exactly since the track was released, lead singer Charles Haddon committed suicide after a performance in Belgium. While the song's popularity was already well apparent in Australia, many fans thought that Haddon's death may have influenced the vote.
Boy & Bear's cover of Crowded House's 'Fall At Your Feet' at #5 is currently the equal-highest position that a cover song has reached. It was first accomplished by Björk in 1995 with 'It's Oh So Quiet', and again by Spiderbait in 2004 with their cover of 'Black Betty'.
At #14, Kanye West's track 'Runaway' becomes the equal longest song in a countdown. At 9:08, it is equal only to Green Day's 'Jesus Of Suburbia' in 2005.
Crystal Castles and Robert Smith reached #26 with their cover of Platinum Blonde's 'Not In Love'; the first time that Robert Smith has charted since The Cure's 'Wrong Number' in 1997. His 13 year abscence became the equal longest time any artist has had between charting songs, with the record being matched 2 years later when Ben Folds Five charted for the first time since 1999. Zack De La Rocha also matched the record in 2014 when he featured on Run The Jewels' 'Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)', his first appearance since Rage Against The Machine last charted in 2001. However, this record was later beaten in the 2016 countdown by The Avalanches, making their reappearence after 15 years, and beaten later in that same countdown, by Paul Kelly, who reappeared after a 16 year absence.
Owl Eyes's appearance with Illy at #29 marks the second time that an Australian Idol contestant has featured in a countdown. Lisa Mitchell became the first, back in 2008.
The countdown also features the moderately rare distinction of having no artists reach consecutive entries. This has also happened in 1993, 1996, 1997, 2000, 2005, 2007 and 2008.
Once again, Richard Kingsmill released the tracks that featured in the positions #101 to #200. For more information on those tracks, click here.
Arcade Fire, Birds Of Tokyo, Bliss N Eso, Gorillaz, Gypsy & The Cat Mark Ronson & The Business Intl., Pendulum and Washington all managed to reach 3 tracks each in the countdown, with Birds Of Tokyo achieving the highest entry at #4.
19 other artists managed to get 2 tracks each.
