Best Music of 2013 – Tom’s Picks

BATMAN_zpsf64d24a6Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday and that your party is continuing until at least tomorrow. With the spirit of the holidays in mind, I thought I would post my second annual best music of the year list (you can find my 2012 list here). Now I have a rather diverse set of songs here, covering a multitude of genres. There is some experimental electronic music, some dance, trance, and other forms of club music, some hip hop, and all sorts of pop and rock music. Pretty much the only thing that is missing is country. Sorry country fans, it has just never spoken to me (with the exception of Taylor Swift – I have a tee-shirt that says “Taylor Swift or Die!” afterall)

So without further ado, here are my 50 favourite songs of 2013. This is not in any order of worst to best. It is merely there in alphabetical. You can agree or disagree with anything I put up there because that is the beauty of opinions. This reflects my tastes, and probably not yours. You can find the entire playlist on Grooveshark here: http://grooveshark.com/playlist/Best+Of+2013/93526048
