In the couple of weeks since the countdown, my thoughts on the number one spot have ebbed and flowed, often conflicting each other. Perhaps in your house “should have been higher” was a blasphemous refrain on the day. But now we have let our opinions marinate—and it’s time to put them on blast.

Believing that some people are happier spending their spare money on vinyl and their spare time on niche internet forums is not wrong; it’s pretentious in a way that many music fans would like to be—a means of possessing and guarding the things they care about.
The year is 1977 and a surprisingly convincing Stevie Nicks impersonator act accidentally kills the real Stevie Nicks in a car crash. After making the decision to swap the bodies, she lives as the front woman for Fleetwood Mac at the height of their fame … but at what cost?
What is it about those songs? You know the ones I mean. They grab your attention, seem a little jarring, or a bit quirky. You’re not quite sure why they appeal but they do.
It was late November 1986, school was out forever, and I was about to travel to Surfer’s Paradise for Schoolies. With my Robert Palmer T-shirt in my travel bag and the case of West Coast Wine Coolers waiting by the door, all I had left to do was prepare my mix tape.
Melbourne’s music industry has shown resilience and adaptability. With live events now subject to Coronavirus restrictions, local venues and promoters have creatively accommodated to capacity limits in the face of ongoing strife.
Are the nausea-inducing ads depicting beautiful couples exchanging expensive gifts over outrageously-priced meals getting up your nose? How about those anxiety-inducing dating scam app advertisements? We hear you. Here at Radio Fodder, we say ‘boo sucks’ to Valentine’s day and commercialised romance. Take a stand with us and enjoy our list of anti-romance songs.
The Australian Indigenous music scene is growing rapidly. From acoustic jams to silky smooth pop, hip-hop and all the avenues between, First Nations musicians have got you covered. This playlist is one that will hang around for my life.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard drummer Eric Moore has announced his departure from the band. Moore is stepping back as member and manager to one of Melbourne’s most prolific bands to focus his attention solely on growing his independent record label, Flightless Records.

The NPR Tiny Desk – a Youtube music haven for all music lovers. The true top five performances embody authentic artistry and skilfully experiment with their own sound, pushing boundaries and peaking creatively.
If the walls of your own home are starting to feel a bit suffocating, or if you’re just feeling a bit bored, music can be the breath of fresh air you might need to traverse this uncertain time. These five albums span a range of genres and emotional qualities, but they’re all here to comfort you though the most menial and mundane of your days at home.
They say that, in a time when all you want is to be able to go outside again, music helps. It helps you remember what life was like Before All This. Some of these artists are local heroes, others are global superstars. Some of their songs are filled with 80s synths, others draw influence from the eclectic sounds of the 2000s, but what their music has in common is an evocation of simpler times. Of times before COVID-19, at least.

If a soothing cup of tea ☕️ could make noise it would sound like this playlist.
It’s time for me to dust off my novelty Central Perk coffee mug, serenade my neighbour’s stinky feline, and dance wildly in the fountain behind the Royal Exhibition Building, because the cast of Friends is reuniting.
In honour of the forthcoming reunion special, I’ve compiled a list of the best television theme songs of all time. Because we all know Friends would be nothing without those four – NOT five – iconic claps…

Valentine’s Day is a day of many emotions, whether you love the idea of the day or hate it. So, to help move the day along, we made playlists to suit all and any of your Valentine’s needs.
As with other art forms, music resonates with the body—it plucks at your heart strings, or, if it’s not especially poetic, it at least stimulates exhilaration throughout your blood, or jams with the inner snare drum of your soul. Music makes us feel something indescribable—and perhaps it shouldn’t have to be described in words, but left as a beautiful craft and stimulus for our wordless inner contentment.

Pop rock – I loved the guitar riffs, low bass lines, intense drumming and raw vocals of this genre. At one point in your teenage life, you’ve probably had some of these songs on your iPod playlists. When I’m in a particularly nostalgic mood, I give these songs and artists a listen.
