BEST OF 2013: ALBUMS | SONGS | EPS | MIXTAPES

We had no trouble listing a hundred songs that stood out to us in 2013. In fact the trouble only came when we had to narrow the list down to just one hundred songs. Nonetheless it was an absolute blast to revisit the songs that made us dance, cry, ponder and, of course, rock out, over the last twelve months, and we hope you enjoy this list half as much as we enjoyed assembling it.

Check out most of the tracks on the list on the embedded Rdio player below (or here if Spotify is more your speed), or skip ahead to our top 20 to read some words on the songs that basically dominated our playlists all year long. There was just no stopping our #1 pick – we’re pretty sure we played it non-stop for a week straight.
