MUSIC lovers are abuzz with the news that the Warmest 100 is back trying to predict what's on triple j's Hottest 100 again.

In its second year, the Warmest 100 is attempting to spoil triple j's annual announcement of its Hottest 100.

The Hottest 100 is usually announced on Australia Day and is a countdown of the most popular songs voted by their listeners.

When the Warmest 100 emerged last year, it predicted the countdown based on everyone's social sharing, by collecting 35,000 votes shared on Twitter and Facebook from 3600 entries to create a view of what they thought the list would look like, Gizmodo reports.

Triple j then changed the way voting could be done for the Hottest 100, making the Warmest 100 almost impossible.

Despite this, the Warmest 100's creators Nick Drewe, Tom Knox and David Quach have returned with a list of new predictions of the countdown.

Mr Drewe told News Corp Australia that they were not planning to do the Warmest 100 again, but then they changed their minds using a different method.

"We weren't planning to do the Warmest 100 again this year. It looked like it would be impossible to gather enough publicly shared votes to do another prediction," he said.

"However David Quach, an Australian economist living in Chicago, who helped us out with the Warmest 100 last year contacted me yesterday with an idea to pull off the prediction again this year.

"We used votes shared on pic.twitter.com and Instagram to compile the prediction. Most images were easily readable via OCR (optical character recognition) software, and we tried to manually code as many as we could in the short time we had before voting closed today.

"I managed to pull most of the old crew together, and the result, in just over 24 hours, is the Warmest 100 of 2013.

"We've got votes from around 1,780 users, totalling over 17,000 individual song votes, around a 1.3% sample by my count."

Mr Drewe also emphasised the Warmest 100 has never been about trying to spoil anything.

"In fact, it was our goal in creating the site to make it as hard as possible to see the top 10 songs, which is the reason for the explanation at the top, and all the warnings as you scroll," he said.

"We're all triple j fans and we all enjoy the Hottest 100, so this was important to us from the beginning."

He also described it as "an experiment in social data".

"What is particularly interesting about this years Warmest 100 was that despite triple j removing the social sharing features of the voting system, users who wanted to share their vote found new ways to do so, as we saw, posting screenshots of their vote confirmation email to Instagram," he added.

Social media fans have been discussing the predictions, which have Australian artists Vance Joy and Flume in the top 10.
