Best songs of 2013

Posted January 1, 2014 By admin

Well, it’s a couple days later than I planned, but here are the best songs of 2013. The reason I am late posting this is that in the past I try to pick whatever songs can fit on 2 CD’s. It was time consuming narrowing them down that way, and at some point I figured why limit myself. I’m probably the last person who still uses CD’s anyways, so I just figured I will pick whatever songs I want, and not worry about limits like that. So, here are my favorite songs of 2013:
