The Top Ten

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.
Deserves at least in top 5..
Great proffesional song by Justin Timberlake it shows he has still got talent however its not my favourite Justin Timberlake song my favourite is definitely Rock your Body but this comes an easy 2nd so yes I think it deserves top spot in the list

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

3Wake Me Up - Avicii
Awesome song should definitely be number 1
Love this song sosososo much should be 1
I love this song and I love avicii

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.
This song is awesome bon jovi should not be in top 10 he sucks really without d autotunes rapping is too hard and every song of em should be given higher rank

5Royals - Lorde
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.


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


Blurred Lines is the most annoying song ever! The only song ahead of this that is more or less worthy is Radioactive.
More comments about Royals - Lorde

6Demons - 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.

7Roar - 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!

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
More comments about Rap God - EminemListen to sample

9Berzerk - 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

10Counting 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

The Contenders

11Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke
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!
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.
It's a good song and I hope Robin Thicke can make a new #1 hit in 2014.

12Applause - Lady Gaga

14Because We Can - Bon Jovi
Wow! I went on this list to help get this song here but it's already here!

Old mans voice is nice
Are you Insane to compare Bruno Mars with the Immortal BON JOVI!

15Just 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!

Miley Cyrus can't stop. She should stop with all that yapping and blabbering.
Dan Bull on the other hand, is a very talented rapper but wasn't signed to a label. That's why Dan is not popular.
This is the chorus of the song, THE CREW!
