Top 10 Best Songs of 2013
2013 may be over, but it left behind these 10 incredible tunes that you need to listen to
With 2013 out of the way, it's time to look at our favorite tunes from yesteryear. 2013's list has a few familiar faces, a lot of new talent, and some veterans who have reinvented themselves.
Tegan and Sarah - Closer
These Canadian twins make things physical with this modern disco-style tune.
Vampire Weekend - Hannah Hunt
Let me just get this one little bit out of the way: Hannah Hunt is the best Vampire Weekend song. Period.
The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather
The Neighbourhood has been on fire this year. Sweater Weather was just one of the excellent tracks off of I Love You.
Cage The Elephant - Come A Little Closer
Ever since frontman Matthew Shultz broke his nose, Cage The Elephant's sound has taken a new direction--one that we definitely approve of.
Capital Cities - Safe And Sound
Not only is this a catchy tune by Capital Cities, but is that a freakin' trombone?
Arcade Fire - Reflektor
Arcade Fire love to have fun and it shows in their latest album Reflektor. The self-titled track will get you off your seat and dancing in no time.
Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?
A badass slow groove accompanied by powerful lyrics make for an incredible tune from UK rockers Arctic Monkeys.
Daft Punk - Get Lucky
Yesterday by The Beatles may be the most covered song of all time, but Daft Punk's Get Lucky definitely received that honor for 2013. We still prefer the original version, but there are quite a few good covers on YouTube so have a look at those as well.
Imagine Dragons - Radioactive
A great music video for an amazing song. Imagine Dragons had quite the year in 2013 with the success of their album, Night Vision. Radioactive was our favorite tune, but there's a lot of good material in Night Vision, so check it out if you haven't already.
Lorde - Royals
Topping our list is the young prodigy from down under known to most as Lorde. Her mom is a poet and it seems like part of that talent has brushed off to her daughter. Lorde may not be in it for the money, but we're sure she'll appreciate her new, well deserved, fortune.
