Music Award

It’s time for the second annual Music For Humans Awards. It’s my small way of evening out the junk fest that is the Grammys. Some of the categories I took from the Grammys, some I decided to have fun with and create my own. Click here for last years winners, and read below for this years winners.

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:
