We had some great music produced in 2013!
We are going to give you a Best 13 for the year.
Despite how much I despise Miley Cyrus and everything she represents. Despite my disgust for this appalling video… I have to admit, it’s a good song and I like it.
#12 Need Your Love
I’m a fan of Ellie and I love her voice. Calvin has done a good job with this track and credit to both of them.
#11 Thrift Shop
This song took the world by storm. It’s an awesome song and Macklemore deserves to be recognised for his talent. Although I was surprised to see him do something like this. I was a fan of Macklemore before the Thrift Shop craze and I love his “Wings”.
#10 Black Skinhead
Kanye provided us with something unique and original with his new album. For me, this song stood out. I love how they’ve used this song in the trailer for Wolf of Wall Street.
#9 Can’t Hold Us
I think this a better song than Thrift Shop in my opinion and I really enjoy listening to this.
#8 Get Lucky
How can you not love Pharell Williams. I love his voice and the songs he takes part in. Obviously a big credit to Daft Punk as well for creating such a cool song.
#7 Let Her Go
Again. Not heard of the Passengers before but this song is something special. Simple, Brilliant and Effective. Gets those emotions worked up. Well played guys! Well played!
I know the song was actually released in 2012 but it didn’t top the charts until 2013… So Yeah!
#6 Wake Me Up
Avicii have done it again. I think this one will be another classic. It doesn’t feel of this day and age, this song but from a distant time. Perhaps why I already feel its a classic.
Lordes? Never heard of her before but she’s got my attention with Royals. It’s smart, witty, catchy and I can listen to it over and over. Definitely look forward to more of her.
Ellie! Did I mention I’m a fan. Well I am! This song is great. I love listening to it and I have yet to get bored of it. Let it Burn Ellie! Just let it BURN!
#3 Counting Stars
One Republic. They never cease to amaze me these guys. They produce some great songs and they all end up staying on my playlist forever. I’m still listening to “Apologize” and “All The Right Moves”.
I’ll admit, I didn’t know of Imagine Dragons before either. I actually this song from a cover by Pentatonix & Lyndsey Stirling. I loved the cover and then looked for the actual song. Equally good! The video is somewhat amusing to me but a great video non-the-less. This is one to enjoy.
#1 Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix)
I love the original and I love this remix just as much! I’m sorry but Lana Del Rey takes the cake with Summertime Sadness despite the original song being one from 2012. It’s my list and this wins.
The whole Playlist is available on YouTube! I hope you enjoyed. I know a lot of people have different opinions on songs so some might be rated higher or lower on your list. You might have completely different lists to mine. Let me know if there are any great songs that I might have missed.
