I have been enjoying Imagine Dragons a lot lately. They've got a great sound that's kind fo the base of a lot of one side of popular music right now, and their singles are catchy in a new way.
If you'd asked me ten years ago if this sort of music would be at the top of the charts, I might have laughed, because the lyrics actually mean something. It's amazing how the world can, eventually, turn around.
New feature this year! I have this little sentence to the side --> "Because songs define our lives." So these are the songs that defines 2013, in my humble opinion. I certainly welcome added opinions, provided you remember this is a totally limited list made on first instincts! I already am kicking myself for leaving off more Luke Bryan, Arcade Fire, PTX, and Macklemore. There's P!nk songs that inexplicably didn't make this list, and I gotta say - I grew to adore "Wrecking Ball." But they're not here. This is what hit the musical heart most this year.
However, I do know how much good music is out there, and please comment and share more, because we need to hear it all!
If you want to take a listen to a mix of all these tracks, head over the Spotify and follow the 2013 - Songs of the Year Playlist!!
Before we get to the top 10, let's give a nod to some of the honorable mentions. And since I only have so much time left this year, they're in alpha order (you don't want me trying to rank them all. I still have a job, yah know). Then we'll get down to business!
All right! Time for the top 10!!
That's it folks! Hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed putting it together in between getting ready for New Year's Eve. Now I'm off to party it out downstairs. Best to you and yours, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I don't normally pick a song based on the video alone, but guys, you've got to see this one. I've caught it a few times now, and every single one of those views has had me going: "what the...?" Worth checking out here, at least once.
Because songs define our moments.
