Favorite Songs of 2013

I attempted to make another top 100 songs list, like I was able to do in 2012, but I ran out of time. I instead have an unranked top 78 Song playlist. I only used one song per artist, and I’m sure in my haste I left out a few songs I’ll regret late. Oh well! Overall it was another pretty great year for music, and I’ve loved re-listening to everything on the list.  You can listen to the Spotify playlist below or see the full list below that.
