  • Daft Punk – Get Lucky ft. Pharrell Williams

The list above is not in order from best to least, or vice versa. All the songs in my opinion earned a spot on the list. 2013 was a big year for indie music! Arcade Fire released their fourth anticipated album Reflektor. Vampire Weekend also released their third album, Modern Vampires of the City. I thought Reflektor was a good album, but I wasn’t in love with it. I was hoping for a lot of hits on this track, and in that regard I felt the album came up short. On the other hand, Modern Vampires of the City delivered. I was expecting one or two tracks I’d love. Surprisingly I found that I thoroughly enjoyed the album from start to finish.

Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor known commonly as Lorde, is a seventeen year old from New Zealand. Lorde established herself as one of the most common household names this year. Her Album Pure Heroine climbed charts and made huge waves. Royals and Team easily earned their spot as two of the best songs of this year. I believe that having a young talented people who do not fall in line with pop culture is something good for the Millennials.

Drake had a great year. He recently received four nominations for the 2014 Grammys. His new album Nothing Was the Same has received world wide acclaim. Hate or love him, he’s successful. I like some of Drake’s music, even though I’m the first to admit the dude needs to delete his Twitter account, and stop making ridiculous videos of himself.

That’s a quick wrap-up of the best songs of 2013! Feel free to give your opinions below. I’d love to hear what alterations you would have made. I’m also always looking to listen to some new tunes.
