Top 50 Songs Of 2013

Another year in the books and with that being the case it's time for another year end list. Once again I've waited until the last minute to finish this, so here it is one song per artist (I don't know why I have that rule).

50. Health Plan - Pissed Jeans
I still think Pissed Jeans is a great name for a band because its just ridiculous to think why they chose this. This band isn't at all serious but its a very loud fast punk track.

49. Graceless - The National

48. We Are - Karnivool

47. Recovery - Frank Turner
Frank Turner as honest as ever, while his albums as a whole aren't as great as the early ones theres always a couple of spot on tracks.

46. Rival - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
classic BRMC

45. Brushstrokes - Natasha Kmeto

44. The Brass - The Men

43. Royals - Lorde

42. You - Bibio

41. I Sat By The Ocean - Queens Of The Stone Age
While I wasn't the biggest fan of the new direction they've taken them riffs of this track are too good to pass up.

40. So Good At Being In Trouble - Unknown Mortal Orchestra

39. Raw Matierial - Deap Valley
It's balls to the wall and the distorted riffs remind me a little of bands like Fu Manchu.

38. Crazy - Ty Segall
Stripped back and completely honest

37. She Will - Savages

36. Your Heartwarming Story Makes Me Sick - Ken Mode

35. Numbers On The Boards - Pusha T
That beat just gets me everytime

34. Delicate Cycle - The Uncluded
Juno Raps

33. Mirrors - Justin Timberlake
It's just a complete toss up between this and Suit & Tie

32. I Can't Resist - Expensive Looks

31. Amethyst Rockstar - Joey Bada$$

30. Grab Her! - Disclosure

29.Kingdom of Kush - Melt Yourself Down
Daddy Fat Sax

28. It All Feels Right - Washed Out
Might be the perfect summer track for this year, seriously it sparkles

27. We're Taking This - Kylesa

26. Default - Atoms For Peace

25. Dance Apocalyptic - Janelle Monae

24. I Love It - Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX
Might seem like a guilty pleasure choice but this is an absolute banger

23. Holland - Black Angels

22. Belong To The World - The Weeknd

21. Simple Pleasures - Jake Bugg

20. Savagely Attack - Czarface feat. Ghostface Killah

19. 25 Bucks - Danny Brown feat. Purity Ring
Can we get a collab album please?

18. Stoned and Starving - Parquet Courts
The Strokes with better lyrics

17. Don't Let Me Go - Mikal Cronin

16. Monomania - Deerhunter

15. Sea Legs - Run The Jewels
Killer Mike absolutely goes for it on this track, like the control verse without having to name people because he's challenging everyone.

14. Tunnel Time - Thee Oh Sees
Controlled chaos

13. You Ha Ha Ha - Charli XCX
A great Pop track that has the great creativity and a massive Gold Panda sample which works so well.

12. Entertainment - Phoenix

11. Reach For The Dead - Boards Of Canada

10. Runnin - David Dallas

9. Get Lucky - Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams
It's too damn catchy for it not to make the top 10

8. Wraith - Peace

7. No Waves - FIDLAR


6. Demon Dance - Surfer Blood

5. I'm The Man That Will Find You - Connan Mockasin

This track is so damn smooth and incredibly sleazy

4. Collard Greens - Schoolboy Q feat. Kendrick Lamar

another top track for Schoolboy his tracks are so damn easy to listen to and the Kendrick verse is so damn good.

3. Attracting Flies - AlunaGeorge

2. Reflektor - Arcade Fire

I've always found Arcade Fire incredibly bland and boring but for some reason I gave this track a go when it was released pre album. WHERE DID THIS COME FROM!?!?! it's completely epic I didn't think they had this thing in them but its such a brilliant track from start to finish.

1. Let Her Go - Jagwar Ma

I was pretty certain I was going to end up with Reflektor being number one but I decided this was a way better choice. It really has everything to me, it's catchy and chorus gets it done everytime. Hearing them do this song live gives it a slightly stronger case as this Australian three piece have made a pop gem.
