Best Pop Songs of 2013

The Top Ten

1 Mirrors - Justin Timberlake

This is a really good song. I love this song and if I could I would listen to it all the time. But then I would get sick of it really fast so that's out... He is a really good singer and actor and this is my favorite song and I think that this is one of the best songs from him, Other then 'Bringing sexy back.' at lest I'm sure that's what its called... He really should be number 1-3. Not number 7.

Am I the only one that can't stand Timberlake at all? He hasn't written one sincere lyric in his life (which makes his awful whining on Holy Grail pointless), is a cocky Michael Jackson wannabe, and makes sure to autotune every lyric to death to make it seem like he has a better vocal range than the majority of singers when he really probably doesn't even have a better range than Justin Bieber. I mean, this song is literally about a girl who looks as good as him. When JT writes a heartfelt, meaningful lyric at all, let me know. - WonkeyDude98

So, cool, enough said. I'm listening to it right now. The lyrics are actually about Justin's grandparents and their love story. Its dedicated to his grandfather, who recently passed away. Awesomeness!

This is very good song of me, I hope ican meet he when he came to very beautiful counttry Indonesia my homeland

9 We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus

It is not good. It does not make sense

My ring back tone

10 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

Radioactive is so uplifting, powerful, intense and amazing! The beat is so intoxicating and the lyrics are so catchy! This should totally be in the top 10.

I love it! I think its one of Imagine Dragon's best song, along with Demons. And I think it deserves to be at least in the top 5.
