(Doing The Sums 2011) Are You Joe Average?

The Bawley crew love (or is it love to hate) the triple j Hottest 100, which-ever. The only thing we love more than the Hottest 100 is our own (Doing the Sums) Are You Joe Average quiz. (see: 2007, 2008, Hottest 100 of all time, 2009, 2010)

Here is how it works:

1. Write out a list of the songs you voted for in the triplej Hottest 100.
2. Write down the position each of these came in the triplej Hottest 100
3. If a song did not make the list put down 101.
4. Add up the scores, and divide by the number of songs you voted for.
5. Post your results as a comment to this blog entry.

How to interpret your score:

1-13: Dude you are the zeitgeist no you are the zeitgeist featuring Kimbra.

14-27: So Nero yet so far.

28-40: Not quite Boy or Bear

41-52: "Here I am stuck in the middle with you"

53-65: Pretty pedestrian, but you probably have one weirdo friend who is rubbing off on you more than you realise.

66-77: Kinda quirky in a cute way.

78-89: Kinda quirky in a "slowly back away..." way.

90-100: You're a f***ing freak, man

101: Did you vote for songs, or flavours of ice cream????

The Bawley 100 top 10 scored:
Metronomy - The Bay 101
Karen O with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross - Immigrant Song 101
SBTRKT (feat. Sampha) - Something Goes Right 101
The Joy Formidable - Whirring 101
The Decemberists - Calamity Song 101
The Horrors - Still Life 101
PJ Harvey - The Words That Maketh Murder 101
Bombay Bicycle Club - How Can You Swallow So Much Sleep 101
British Sea Power - Who's In Control 101
TV On The Radio - Will Do 101

Bawley's score: 101 Seems this year, we were voting for flavours of ice cream.
How did you score?

Tv on the radio is to Bawley what The Wombats were to the triple J's hottest 100....

None of the Bawley Top 10 made the Hottest 100 list. Unbelievable.

I don't think Bawley was deliberately obscure this year. Note that plenty of the Bawley #11-25 selections were popular with the jjj voters.

But rules of the quiz are top 10 only; ice cream it is.

I voted using my usual jjj hottest 100 rules. One vote per artist, don't waste votes for songs that are not on the list.

Here is how I voted and scored.

TV On The Radio - Will Do - 101
PJ Harvey - The Words That Maketh Murder - 101
The Horrors - Still Life - 101
SBTRKT - Hold On {Ft. Sampha} - 101
M83 - Midnight City - 5
Joe Goddard - Gabriel - 60
Bon Iver - Holocene - 53
The National - Exile Vilify - 101
Cut Copy - Need You Now - 101
Radiohead - Separator - 101

82.5: Kinda quirky in a "slowly back away..." way.
