Unless you’ve been living under a large rock you’d be well aware of the fact that a bunch of people are getting their knickers in a twist about the possibility of Taylor Swift landing a spot in triple j’s hottest 100.
Click-bait experts Buzzfeed started a #Tay4Hottest100 campaign wherein they encouraged people to vote for Tay-Tay’s earworm Shake It Off and the internet responded both positively and negatively causing the whole thing to go viral.
We weren’t too fussed about the whole thing until recently, when we read a piece on the Music Feeds website.
They’d caught up with a dude by the name of Michael George, who has tallied 20,000 votes using social media and delivered up a spoiler filled list of their hottest 100 predictions. You can read the entire piece HERE, but it was the little extract below that caught our attention:
Music Feeds: If Swift does make it into the count, can you predict who might just miss placing in the top 100?
Michael George: By our count it would be Between Friends by Japanese Wallpaper.
Now as much as we love us a bit of T-Swift, her bumping out a killer combo of up and coming Aussie wunderkinds? Well that’s just not cricket.
Instead of getting all up in arms about it, Japanese Wallpaper responded brilliantly by taking the ‘sick beat’ of Between Friends and dropping Taylor’s Shake It Off acapella over the top and the result is actually all kinds of amazing and a serious slice of mainstream meets indie POP PERFECTION.
