My Favorite Songs of 2013.

2013 surprised me with all of its great music! It took me some time to narrow it down and I managed to make it to a top 40, larger than my lists in the past. So here it is. Enjoy :)

 40. “Blurred Lines” – Robin Thicke feat. Pharrell and T.I: I’m not here for the skeevy lyrics but damn this song is groovy. It’s quite circus-y, very silly, and a 2013 success story.

39. “Bodysnatcher” – AMALIA: A distorted, industrial, soulful song that is slow-burning and ends up putting you in a trance. So good.

38. “Secondary (feat. Problem)” – RL Grime: RL Grime produced a highly underrated monster track with this one. While Problem tried his best with his lighthearted T-Pain-esque auto-tuned singing, the production held all the weight and then some.    

37. “Work (feat. BANKS)” – Lil Silva: Yaaaas to this funky dance banger! I’m automatically transported to some underground LDN party when I hear this song. Gun fingers in air and all. Endless vibes and the start of a bountiful relationship between one of my favorite new artists this year, BANKS, with mega-talented (and mega-cute) Lil Silva.   

36. “Suit and Tie” – Justin Timberlake feat. Jay-Z: The feel-good song of the year! JT started a dapper movement with this one. More than anything, it was a really good stab at the 2013 musical landscape by a legend reentering the game.

35. “Fine China” – Chris Brown: CB is singing is little heart out on this old-school inspired track. The beat gives me major Michael Jackson-vibes and is an undeniably catchy tune.

34. “Twerk It” – Busta Rhymes: For having one of the “words of the year” in its title, this song is refreshingly pleasant and enjoyable even! Busta’s Jamaican patois is brill and the Pharrell-production is perfect and oh so underrated.

33. “Crush” – Jai Paul: While the circumstances for which this happened absolutely sucked, I was so excited to get an album’s worth of demos/unfinished songs from mystery man Jai Paul. This song stood out from the rest, albeit it being a cover. He turned it out and breathed new life into this 90s radio hit. It was also great to hear him sing semi-clearly over this funky, guitar-led rework.

32. “Voices (feat. Sasha Keable)” – Disclosure: Can I just say how unbelievable this song is live??! GAWD. Sasha’s soulful, characteristic voice paired with this bouncy and hypnotizing Disclosure beat is magical.

31. “My Party” – Icona Pop feat. Zebra Katz: Icona Pop’s album this year was disappointingly underwhelming but this non-album gem was dropped and served as a beacon of hope for what Icona Pop could potentially sound like in the long run. It’s unapologetic-ly emo-glam, if that’s a thing. “Sad gurl” anthem status!

oh
Here I am hot & sweaty after getting my life served to me at the Yeezus concert. How do I put last night into words?? I’ve been riding with ‘Ye since purchasing my first hip-hop album back in ‘04 (his “The College Dropout.”) His music & aesthetic have shaped the landscape of my adolescent years. “Yeezy taught me” for nearly a decade now. Last night was beyond; he’s truly the best and I am so proud of him. On an “OD” tip, I felt like everyone at Staples was a part of my family. The vibes were just perfect. The energy was tangible. Although he didn’t perform GOAT “All Falls Down” and like nothing from “Late Registration” or “Watch the Throne,” it was the best concert I’ve ever been to. I didn’t think I could love him any more…I can’t even explain it, I surprise myself too ;) *kanye voice* (at STAPLES Center)
