Top 75 Songs of 2013

With very little music expected to be released this December, and as other music blogs beginning their 2013 round-up processes, I figured I'd do the same. To start, I'll be ranking (though not reviewing) my seventy-five favorite songs of this calendar year below & embedding a Spotify playlist containing each song listed descending from #1 down to #75. Feel free to post your top 10's/20's etc. in the comments below, and expect a more in-depth countdown of 2013's best records over the course of December.

  1. Solid list but I think it could use a little more diversity in genres. Albums like Born Sinner (J Cole), Nothing Was The Same (Drake), Magna Carta Holy Grail (Jay Z) and Yeezus (Kanye) are all candidates for an album of the year nomination yet none are represented on this list. Have you listened to any of these? If so, what songs stand out to you as being the best?

  2. Haven't listened to any of them enough to put them on the list - would be insincere to put songs/albums on my year-end list purely based on public reaction and not personal experience.

    Though from what I gathered Magna Carta wasnt very well received.
