A favourite hit from Triple J Hottest 100 – Rudimental – “Not Giving In” ft. John Newman & Alex Clare

I first discovered Triple J’s Hottest 100 last year on Australia Day at Loki hostel in Cusco, Peru where heaps of Aussies were loyally listening to the countdown with a beer in hand from around 8am. Dedicated fans! Alex, Lou and I were taking it easy after completing the Inca Trail so we weren’t planning on getting involved in the Aussie Day festivities. However, later that day our faces were covered in green and yellow face paint surrounded by Aussies and other travelers breaking it down on the dance floor. It was one of those spontaneous and surprisingly massive party [What happens in Cuzco, stays in Cuzco, Al and Lou ;)].

This year’s Aus-stray Day matched last year’s party with some of my favourite Triple J Hottest 100 tracks being played on SXM dance floors at the Soggy Dollar Bar and Bliss. My Aussie crew and I are still recovering from the massive party weekend in Sint Maarten where we partied with wigs, mascot koala bears, blow up kangaroos and a mini gator. Those crazy, fun memories are tattooed on my memory. I’m a big supporter of the underdog and just love no. 16. on Triple J’s Hottest 100. Check out the Rudimental’s ‘Not Giving In’ video above. It makes me want to go back to South East Asia again. ❤ ❤ ❤ Love Love LOVE!

Have a good week travelers and friends around the globe 🙂

P.S. Here are the lyrics:

Lost my heart
And lost my soul
Now it’s time
Baby, oh no

Lost my mind
And lost my goal

Oh, not giving in
I’m not giving in
Not giving in
Woh, I’m not giving in

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

This time,I’m gonna be stronger
I’m not giving in

Waste my time…
Lost, and now my love is cursed
Time to make these things feel right
Oh, let’s start this show
Let’s shine this time

Oh, I’m not giving in
Not giving in
Not giving in
Not this time
Not gonna give in

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

This time, I’m gonna be stronger
I’m not giving in

Nooo
Not giving in
Not giving in
I’m gonna be stronger
I’m gonna be stronger

(This time
I’m gonna be stronger
I’m not giving in)
