Every year on Australia Day Triple J have their Hottest 100. Its a countdown of the 100 best songs of the previous year, and is the worlds largest music poll. So in that tradition I have compiled a list of the 10 most downloaded idents from this site in 2005.

You can watch the countdown in the Top Gear inspired video above (warning: iMovie amateurism abound) or browse the list below the fold..

10 / ABC2 – Hello, Spring

9 / ABC – News Opener

8 / ITV1 – Blue

7 / Seven – News Opener

6 / Ten – News Opener

5 / BBC1 – Tumblers

4 / Nine – News Opener

3 / BBC1 – Dock

2 / Nine/Win – Still the One

1 / ABC – There’s more to television..

My favourite ident of 2005 was probably this one from SBS which I posted back in April.

Thanks everyone for continuing to visit and happy Australia Day, wherever you are.

Update: The song is “Munich” by Editors.

Another excellent song from them is Bullets.

I finally got around to watching this, and I must say that you have done a marvellous job (the speeding up during the ‘There’s more to…’ ident didn’t quite work, though). Better than anything I can do, anyway.

Hey Jordan,

I know what you mean with the ‘The there’s more to..’ ident, I kind of just did it so the ident would finish at the same time as the song, but the speed up effect looks really out of place.
