Stir the Pot - Caroline & Claude 

I love this song because I think my boyfriend plays this on repeat in his head - his favourite lockdown activity is annoying me. Very fitting for 2021. 

Cat, Head of Design

Stop For A Minute - Polish Club

Taking aim at abusers of power with their trademark infectious beat, this song will simultaneously exasperate you and pull you to the d-floor.

Industry Baby - Lil Nas X feat. Jack Harlow

Iconic film clip and undeniably catchy. Lil Nas X is the new queer icon we needed!

Natalie, Editorial Content Producer

Cold Heart – Elton John, Dua Lipa & PNAU

I couldn't stop playing this electro-pop mashup last year and it's still a great summer vibe as we head into 2022.

The Walls Are Way Too Thin - Holly Humberstone

I've been obsessed with Holly Humberstone over the past year. This song is perfect for a lazy summer Sunday and it'll have you singing along before you know it.

Dominique, Category Manager

Alive - Rüfüs Du Sol

A good upbeat song to listen to, just what was needed to get through 2021.

Get in the mood with Triple J's 2020 Hottest 100 and Hottest 100 of the Decade 2010s playlists on Spotify!
