The Top Ten

1 Get Lucky - Daft Punk Get 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

I do not like this song. - madoog

2 Wake Me Up - Avicii 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

No. This song sucks. Avicii is horrible

3 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.

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

This is my favorite song of all time.Justin Timberlake is so good in this song.It has got so much melody.Just Love it.I believe that it should be the No. 1 song of 2013 and probably one of the best of all time.Common Timberlakers VOTE!

4 Royals - 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

This is a horrible excuse for music.I honestly do not see how so many people like this.Just another song about money and possessions.And it sounds terrible and lazy.The music video is equally stupid.

5 Counting Stars - Onerepublic Counting Stars - Onerepublic

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

A good song, now with 1,000,000,000 views, but not as good as the Imagine Dragons songs from the same year.

Made me mad about this band

6 The Monster - Eminem The 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.

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

What does this song have anything to do with people committing suicide?! Haven't you realized how offensive your comment is? - zerolamasta

I honestly thought this song was awful. I was not feeling it. - madoog

7 Demons - Imagine Dragons Demons - 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.

This isn't that great, too slow, too boring for what it's trying to portray. I feel alone on this opinion.

I don't think you know what the song is trying to portray. It's supposed to sound as frail and empty as it is, because it's how Dan feels burnt out and weak from his inner flaws essentially eating him from the inside. - WonkeyDude98

8 Rap God - Eminem Rap God - Eminem

9 Just Give Me a Reason - P!nk Just 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

This song is good. - madoog

10 Roar - Katy Perry Roar - 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!

This song is bad ass. It hit #1 because is is a damn good song. Do the people that hate this song have ears or what? - westofohio

I do not find this good. - madoog

The Newcomers

? Chasing the Sun - Sara Bareilles Chasing the Sun - Sara Bareilles
? Whoa - Earl Sweatshirt Whoa - Earl Sweatshirt

The Contenders

11 Berzerk - Eminem Berzerk - 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

I like how there are four Eminem songs in the top 20, all deserving it. While the weakest of the four, it's still a great song by its own merits. - WonkeyDude98

13 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke Blurred 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.

I'm in misery. That's just what I feel like singing every time I hear this piece of garbage. And this stood at number 1 in billboard for 12 weeks? Kill me please. Statistically this then stands a hit of equal respect as Eminem's oscar winning masterpiece 'Lose Yourself'. God, I think I'm gonna throw up. - Ark-M

Is that a Maroon 5 reference and an Eminem mention in the same sentence? Dude you're awesome. - WonkeyDude98

Best song? Explain to me why the only I remember from this stupid track is the annoying "woo" sound and why it's music video makes Robin Thicke look like a sexist?

It has that good vibe. I like Blurred Lines. - madoog

14 Treasure - Bruno Mars Treasure - 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

My top 2 favorite Bruno mars songs are Locked Out Of Heaven and this one. Amazing Beat. Cool melody. And a good song.

16 Bridge 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.

Jackie was only 12 when she emerged on stage dressed as a water nymph and wading ankle deep in a pool of water. It was just Jackie and a piano, but what a breathtaking performance! It was the highlight of the Cirque du Soleil benefit concert for clean water. - BobG

17 Bad Guy - Eminem Bad Guy - Eminem

Why is this lower than:

Timber, Holy Grail, Gas Pedal, Scream and Shout, 23, All Gold Everything, Blurred Lines. - WonkeyDude98

A brilliant track. Needs no other words. - SwagFlicks

18 Can't Hold Us - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Can't Hold Us - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Seriously 18? I could have tolerated it being 7 or so... But that low? This and Thrift shop was the best back then!

I do not like Can't Hold Us, even though it is upbeat. - madoog

19 Burn - Ellie Goulding Burn - Ellie Goulding

This is a truly inspirational song, and is one of the best of this year. It needs to be in the top 10 definitely.

When it comes to deciding whether a song is the best of that year, I feel like if the chorus mainly consists of one word being repeated, then it's not really a contender. - Rumje

Please be number 1 soon I love this song - spodermanfan1000

This song is awesome get it to Number 1.
