The Top Ten

1 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'm lucky! - Neonco31

2 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

A truly legendary song - growlbunny

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.

Deserves at least in top 5..

4 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

Should be in Top 10 Definitely

I love Imagine Dragons. Radioactive is a song that I might have voted for instead, but firstly, it was a 2012 song, and second, this is still such an amazing song and I'm not sure why I don't listen to OneRepublic as much anymore.

An AMAZING song - growlbunny

5 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 song is very spesial

6 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

Great song.

7 Rap God - Eminem

This should DEFINITELY be higher!

Best song of the year vote it up

This Song is the God of Songs this year

#3 is needed for this boi - growlbunny

8 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

Take it off this list, its terrible - Th3Zm0nst3r

9 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

How is this beautiful song below Blurred Lines? - 445956

10 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

The Newcomers

? Above and Beyond - Deep Purple
? The Vampyre of Time and Memory - Queens of the Stone Age

The Contenders

11 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.

13 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

This song is crap. - madoog

15 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

16 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!

What this song is so awesome

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

17 Timber - Pitbull

Love this song so much its definitely one of the better songs of 2013. Its absolutely hilarious. Well done Pitbull and Kesha

Pitbull and Ke$ha is a match made in my nightmares. And yet it doesn't sound that bad. - WonkeyDude98

The harmonicas, while not too bad, can get old after a while. Other than that, this song isn't awful. - SwagFlicks

Pitbull does not belong on this list whatsoever. - Rumje
