The Top Ten

1
Wake 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]The beat is uplifting and the lyrics actually have meaning (no lyrical genius) but still lyrics have meaning

2Mirrors - 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.

3Get 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]If you don't know who Daft Punk is, then you've been living under a rock. I just want to pint that out.

4The 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]Thank god Eminem released his album in 2013 otherwise this year would have the most suicides ever!

5Roar - Katy Perry
Naa. Definitely not one of the best. The only reason this is on the list is because she is famous.
Best Katy perry song EVER! It's my fave song right now! <3 you Katy!
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!

6Royals - 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

[Newest]This should be at the top!

7Rap 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]Awesome 6 minutes of non-stop rap no other ladies and gents Eminem is back in business

8Demons - 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]If there was one breakout band this year, it was imagine dragons with their smash hits Radioactive, demons, its time, and top of the world.

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)

10Blurred 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!

The Contenders

11Applause - Lady Gaga
LOVE THIS SONG please MAKE IT IN THE top 10
This needs to be top 10.. I mean selena gomez slow down is higher -_-

kennylee

Make it the top 10! Click Vote, it is THE best song released last year. amazing - catchy, just pure pop gaga pleasure!

12Just 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.
This is an awesome song! It should be number 1. I always listen to this song after a breakup! Great job pink!
It's only 37? It should at least be in the top five
[Newest]Not the best song but certainly deserves a higher spot

13Berzerk - 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

14Heart Attack - Demi Lovato
This Is The Best Single Of 2013.. After Releasing this song it become #1 on iTunes before 24 H... ]
This Is Best Song Ever.. This Was At #1 Last week.. Are You Guys Nuts. Demi Is The Best... Vote More please.
This Is The Best Song Ever...
[Newest]Demi is an amazingly talented artists with an inspiring past and this is the epitome of a great song.

15Treasure - Bruno Mars
I thought it would be Young Girls but instead it was this song and the video looks like MJ's videos
Brill just brill the music the dancing the singing and coolness BRILLIANT!
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

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]Jackie simply has the most beautiful singing voice in the world.

17Because We Can - Bon Jovi
Wow! I went on this list to help get this song here but it's already here!
Go Bon Jovi! Even with all the really popular artists releasing this year, they found their way to the top!
Old mans voice is nice
Are you Insane to compare Bruno Mars with the Immortal BON JOVI!

18When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars
My dad has high musical standards and most songs since 1990 don't pass it. This one did. AWESOME SONG!
My favorite song I love this song and it helps when I'm sad
Bruno rocks! Such a simple yet ridiculously striking song, only he can do this.
[Newest]Ohh god... This song made me cry for 1 month... Such a nice song! Love you Bruno Mars!

19X-Kid - Green Day
Oh what a song this is! Why it's not in #1. A very good song and it's better than the song which is on #1.

Just plain awesome and it is really catchy as well. I just love this song so much.

Notnormal12
