Best of 2013: Songs

Share it Please
Last year I did a Best of 2012 list that included songs, food, actors/actresses, movies, and books. This year I'll be doing the same thing (minus the actors/actresses). I hope you all enjoy it. :)

First up is music. These are in no particular order, they're just my top 10 favorites. It was especially hard to pick favorites this year, because there was so much good music. And I started like a new genre (alternative rock). That didn't help things at all. Most of the songs are from this year, but I think there's one or two that aren't. Hopefully, you'll recognize a couple. If not, I've introduced you to more music. Yay! ;)

1. Royals by Lorde
It took me forever to figure out if I like this song or not. After listening to it a gazillion times I realized I did. They lyrics are pretty cool, too. Instead of being about partying and having tons of money and all the other things most celebrities of today glorify, it's about being normal. Not having very much money. Living in a "torn-up town". Also, Lorde is a fantastic singer.

2. Dirty Paws by Of Monsters and Men
This song came out in 2011, but it's new to me, so... This is another alternative rock song and you either love this band or you hate them. My sister loves them, my mom... Not so much.

3. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons
The first time I heard this song I was in love. It has a great beat, the tune is very catchy, and it's just-cool. Imagine Dragons is a great band, too. All of their songs are different, which I personally like.

4. Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Ray
Another one of those songs where the first time I heard it I fell in love with it. Lana Del Ray is also one of those artists where you love her or you hate her. The rest of my family doesn't like her. Except me. With that said, I won't be offended if you don't either.

5. Roar by Katy Perry
Love. This. Song. It always puts me in a good mood. My sister and I like to dance around the house while listening to it. The lyrics are very positive, too. It's just a good song all around.

6. I Will Wait by Mumford & Sons
Mumford & Sons are great singers. They kind of have a bluegrass vibe thing going on, which I love. Especially this song. I'm pretty sure they performed this song live on the Grammy's, so if you were watching those this year, you might recognize the song.

7. Can't Hold Us by Macklemore & Rylan Lewis
I don't usually like rap, but this song is an exception. Plus, it's not all rapping. Again, the lyrics have a good message and the song is really catchy.

8. Just Give Me A Reason by P!nk feat. Nate Ruess
P!nk has such an amazing voice. And Nate Ruess. They're both really talented. And this song shows off their voices really well. It's just a very pretty song.

9. Atlas by Coldplay
So beautiful. So, so beautiful. My eyes tear up every time I hear this song. Chris Martin has a fantastic voice with lots of range. I can't even begin to describe how much I love this song. It's also on the Catching Fire soundtrack, so I'm kind of obligated to like it. ;)

10. I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift
Okay, so who hasn't seen the screaming goat version of "I Knew You  Were Trouble"? If you haven't, go do it right now. It's hilarious. Another one of those catchy songs that are fun to make fun of. But it's not a bad song either. Although, slightly overplayed...

Inquiry of the Day:

What are some of your favorite songs of the year?


  1. Swiftie2212/28/2013

    Oh, I love "Roar", too! It's so catchy and uplifting! It would definitely go on MY Best of 2013 list, too. :) Some other songs I enjoyed/discovered this year include:

    "Sweeter Than Fiction" by Taylor Swift
    "Heart Attack" by Demi Lovato
    "Piano" by Ariana Grande
    and "Want U Back" by Cher Lloyd

    I'm really looking forward to the next "Best Of 2013" posts. :)

    1. I love "Heart Attack" and "Want U Back", too.
      I'm glad you enjoyed the post. :)
