This is one of the songs I almost regret not adding to my top songs list, but I stand by that onerepublic puts out incredible music just about every single time. "Counting Stars" means something internally, with a real concern with a change in concentration on money to something more. Dream a little dream and whatnot. I don't know, it just feels good to sing out. Sure, it's not slow and feeling, but hey, sometimes the tables can get turned.
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!!!
Because songs define our moments.
