ABC Classic FM
ABC Classic FM’s annual Classic 100 survey is always a highlight of the classical music year, and this year’s edition, Music in the Movies, is the most popular yet. In just the first five days of voting, the number of votes had exceeded the final tally in any of the previous countdowns.
ABC Classic FM's annual Classic 100 survey of Australia's favourite music remains the definitive anthology of classic hits, its combination of superb performances and much-loved classics having proved appealing to both classical music experts and novices alike.

When ABC Classic FM announced the original Classic 100 survey back in 2001, it was barely a month before the launch of the iPod, which has transformed the listening habits of the nation. Now, music – from the classics to pop to jazz, you name it – is in everyone’s pockets, travelling with us wherever we go. It has undoubtedly changed the way we listen to music, but more importantly, has it changed the music we love?
