The Top Ten

1
Mirrors - Justin Timberlake
Man 2013 was a terrible year for songs, if Roar is in the top 10 then it clearly has been god awful year for music this year. But Mirrors is a good song. Sadly music becomes worse and worse each year as we lose great rock music, Rap Music and Classic music to Pop music. What happened to Foo fighters? Kanye west? Dizzie rascal? Cold play? Arctic Monkeys? I'm sick of Rihannannannananananna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Dustbin Beaver.
What the hell? Radioactive was #1 not even that long ago and now it's nowhere to be found on this list? Clearly that should be number 1. I swear, this website really pisses me off sometimes. You idiots don't know real music.
Deserves at least in top 5..
[Newest]Well, I don't have any worst songs and ever listened it.

2Get Lucky - Daft Punk
Amazing Song!

Beautiful, catchy, with a Disco feeling which makes it stand out!

Daft Punk is an incredible duo and "Get Lucky" certainly deserves to be in the Top 10 of 2013.
And please don't forget Pharrell Williams' part. His vocals are amazing!

Of course the result of the collaboration between these artists is UNIQUE!
Perfect! Amazing song, one off the greats songs off all the time of Daft Punk! Amazing! Amazing!
This song needs to be in the top ten this is one of the best songs of the year
[Newest]Bass lines are amazing

3Wake Me Up - Avicii
This is the best song of 2013. The whole album is even amazing! The fact that critics don't care about Wake Me Up and titles Get Lucky as the best song of the year just shows how full of bull they are these days. Avicii is a really talented and professional artist who's putting a lot of work into his music. This is how the rock music of our generation should sound like!
Awesome song should definitely be number 1
I love this song and I love avicii
[Newest]Love it, this song.

4Royals - Lorde
Royals is the definition of pop 2013. Her song kept people from turning off their radios everyday due to Miley's Wrecking Balls. And of course, all those other crazy out of this world songs. Especially "The Fox" by Ylvis. It's just so dang popular for being annoying, like "Friday" and "Gangnam Style" Lorde saved us all. A 16 year old singer from New Zealand who wrote a song about not caring about what people think about her. Not like what Miley Cyrus does, not that kind of carefreeness. But like not caring about what you wear, and the way you do things. This song is unique and original and you can spot Lorde's voice out of a one hundred singer playlist. It can't be mixed up with another singer's. The chorus sounds like an actual choir singing her amazing song. Royals saved 2013, in my opinion. Royals ROCKS!
OK, Lorde was a 16 year old, living in New Zealand when she wrote "Royals", and just turned 17. The lyrics are simple poignancy, spot on, brilliance that hits the nail on the head about the rappers of today. That is talent, not to mention the ballsy minimalist composition that is almost never number one material in today's music climate, and her "icy" layered vocals on the song that make it sound like a choir. This is one talented young lady! Even the legendary Cher gave her support to this great aspiring talent. She deserves the number one song on this list like no other.

theOpinionatedOne

Lorde has definitely proved herself as a force to reckon with. She has an amazing voice for a 16 year old. I love this song because the lyrics are so true! The lyrics are a lot better than Miley Cyrus's "We Can't Stop" honest to god do people even listen to the lyrics in songs anymore? This song deserves top ten. Excellent job

dragonfly99

[Newest]Lorde doesn't deserve the hate she gets. This song was written when she was nearly 16 and called too weird for radio, but it still got popular! Her voice is amazing and her lyrics are beautiful!

5The Monster - Eminem
Eminem's comeback in 2013 saved music! This is a great song about his fame-not just the usual money-cash-hoes, but about how fame is killing him.
This song is amazing and it deserves a higher rank.
2013 was a bad year for music... But out of nowhere the rapper Eminem sang a song with
Rihanna and made a brilliant song! Thank you SO much Eminem!
[Newest]Love the song. I listen to it all the time

6Roar - Katy Perry
Naa. Definitely not one of the best. The only reason this is on the list is because she is famous.
I don't think it's the best song from Katy Perry but the lyrics are weird to me. and I love Katy Perry though!
Best Katy perry song EVER! It's my fave song right now! <3 you Katy!

7Demons - Imagine Dragons
This should be in the top 10! This song has so much meaning and Imagine Dragons is a great band! I also think that Berzerk, Castle of Glass, and Radioactive belong in the top 10.
Top ten list? This should be in AT LEAST the top 3. This song is so good. When Radioactive was popular, I liked it, but I was frustrated because Demons wasn't being played on the radio! This song is bold. Just listen to the song once, PLEASE, you will love it.
"I wanna hide the truth, I wanna shelter you! " It's deep, catchy and bursts with emotion! Truly lovable. Definitely should be in the top 5.
[Newest]#6? Really? Oh please... This should've been #1.

8Rap God - Eminem
This should DEFINITELY be higher!
Best song of the year vote it up
This Song is the God of Songs this year
[Newest]This songs definitely deserve 1 rank. This is the best rap song I have ever heard.

9Counting Stars - Onerepublic
Should be in Top 10 Definitely
Such a refreshing song near the end of year. Most people hadn't really heard of Onerepublic before this - now they can't forget them
How is royals, roar, and radioactive in the top tens and not this
[Newest]I'm just listening to this song and I love it, that's 2013, I don't know who is one republic (now I know)

ComelCumil


10Berzerk - Eminem
Rap god should be in the top ten also. This list is weird, Bon jovi & David Bowie, really? This top ten of 2013, not 1869. Lincoln park and bullet for my valentine both suck. I could see Miley Cyrus being on here because she's super famous, still sucks, I'm sure she'd get a lot of votes. But seriously, who is voting for this BS.
This song was a breath of fresh air in a sea of boring/terrible pop music that was the Summer of 2013. While it's not Eminem's best (though some of the tracks from this same album come close), this song is filled with energy, while also being pretty silly, and I think it works well.
Just Mind Blowing! Vote this! It will come to the top soon. It just came out recently

HirunMeepage

[Newest]I hate how most of music on the radio is pop. I like pop, but I prefer rock and electronic. This song is a mix between rock and rap, different from the crappy pop music. 2013 was a horrible year for music, but Eminem saved it

The Contenders

11Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke
This is quite possibly the worst song I've ever heard.

-the beat, awful. The dancing, garbage. The singing (if you can call it that) has no emotion or substance. Everything about this song just screams corporate pandered bull.
Every single person knows this song. I went to a deprived and starving African village and they knew this song. You may hate it, but when you hear it in 10 years, you're gonna be dancing, singing, and partying.
I used to cut and I used to take medication to help with the pain and when I heard this song I stopped cutting myself. robin thicke changed my life. his song is so inspiring that now I donate blood instead of cutting myself to feel better. everyone with depression, anxiety, and fear should listen to this 24/7!

12Castle of Glass - Linkin Park
Linkin Park at their finest
THE BEST song ever ever heard by me...in my opinion the best song of year 2012-2013...LINKIN PARK is EPIC and it's going to be here in this world FOREVER...this song deserves 1st place
Linkin park overall make this list good just from the fact of linkin park being there just too dam varied and creative in there work! Katy Perry fans disgust me!
[Newest]Bad game (warfighter) great song

13Just Give Me a Reason - P!nk
This is a lot better than most of the crap that came out this year, it definitely deserves to be above Miley, the girl who decided to change her image to slutty crackw***e only after accumulating thousands of fans between the ages of 4 and 11, and Robin, the guy that is so lame that he hashtags his own last name at least five times during his video, is married but still dances around with naked girls in his video and treats them like sexual objects and puts balloons in his video bragging about his supposedly large genitals.
It's only 37? It should at least be in the top five
This is an awesome song! It should be number 1. I always listen to this song after a breakup! Great job pink!

14Applause - Lady Gaga

[Newest]Demi is an amazingly talented artists with an inspiring past and this is the epitome of a great song.

16Bridge Over Troubled Water - Jackie Evancho
There is only one voice around today like this!
Fantastic version of a classic song. Jackie's voice is the best.
Performed at Cirque du Soleil's charity gala "One Night for ONE DROP 2013" in the "O" Theater, Bellagio Resort, Las Vegas. There's a YouTube of it.
[Newest]Riveting, compelling performance from the young singer.

17Treasure - Bruno Mars
I thought it would be Young Girls but instead it was this song and the video looks like MJ's videos

Radioactive used to be number one on here but someone must of deleted it. Whoever deleted it is a dick. it deserved to be number one instead of mirrors
