Top 10 Best Songs of 2013

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!

It's just so catchy and reminds me of summer 2013. I love it, but in my opinion, Mirrors by Justin Timberlake was terrible. Like the legend of the phoenix...

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

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 title 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!

Energetic, and country-like EDM. Some people hate it just for the video. What the heck, man! It's just a video! And there is nothing wrong with it!

It's been one year and this still is my most favorite song!

3 Mirrors - Justin Timberlake

Man, 2013 was a terrible year for songs. If Roar is in the top 10, then it clearly has been a god-awful year for music. However, Mirrors is a good song. Sadly, music becomes worse each year as we lose great rock, rap, and classic music to pop music. What happened to Foo Fighters? Kanye West? Dizzee Rascal? Coldplay? Arctic Monkeys? I'm sick of Rihanna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Bieber.

Right where it should be... On the top of the list. This song gets me going every time I listen to it.

It's his Runaway. While this isn't as good as that song, it has a similar sense of scope.

4 Rap God - Eminem

Great song and lyrics! Has to be number 1. He just spat lyrics verse after verse! Also, I want to say that "Get Lucky" sucks and doesn't deserve to be on this list at all.

Eminem's the G.O.A.T. It's a shame y'all go on for Justin Timberlake and feminine artists who expose their bodies to overrate the music, when you ignore one of the masterpieces of the decade.

I'm not sure about the best song of the year, but it is definitely the best rap song of the year. And one of Eminem's crowning achievements, he freestyled the whole song.

5 Counting Stars - Onerepublic

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

OneRepublic and P!ATD are my favorite bands. Counting Stars is a song that lasted for almost 60 weeks in the Billboard Hot 100. Why? Because almost no one can hate it.

Such a refreshing song near the end of the year. Most people hadn't really heard of OneRepublic before this - now they can't forget them.

6 Royals - Lorde

"Royals" is the definition of pop in 2013. This song kept people from turning off their radios every day due to Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" and 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 what people think about her. Not in the way 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 in 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. In my opinion, "Royals" saved 2013. Royals ROCKS!

Okay, Lorde was a 16-year-old, living in New Zealand when she wrote "Royals", and she had just turned 17. The lyrics are simple, poignant, spot on, and brilliant, hitting 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 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.

7 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.

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!

Thank God Eminem released his album in 2013. Otherwise, this year would have had the most suicides ever!

8 Berzerk - Eminem

This song was a breath of fresh air in a sea of boring and 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. It's also pretty silly, and I think it works well.

I hate how most of the 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.

Great song. I'm personally a metal fan, but there are no real contenders on the list. I find it extremely funny how Bullet for My Valentine is like number 20 right now, though. They suck so much.

9 Just Give Me a Reason - P!nk

This is an awesome song! It should be number 1. I always listen to this song after a breakup! Great job, Pink!

How is this beautiful song below Blurred Lines?

Should be in the top 5 at least!

10 Roar - Katy Perry

This song is badass. It hit #1 because it is a damn good song. Do the people that hate this song have ears or what?

This song is fantastic! Its lyrics are good, the beats are good, and the singer is also good.

A fantabulous song I ever heard in my life. The best song of hers!

The Contenders
11 Applause - Lady Gaga

The music video: Great.
The song: Great.
The artist: Great.
The lyrics: Great.
Conclusion: The whole song is amazing and this should be higher.

Make it the top 10! Click vote, it is THE best song released last year. Amazing - catchy, just pure pop Gaga pleasure!

Yes! I love this song! She wrote it for all of her Little Monsters.

12 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

I used to cut, and I used to take medication to help with the pain. 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 going to be dancing, singing, and partying.

This song may not be good by some standards, but I honestly think it's silly and fun. I listen to it occasionally.

13 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Jackie Evancho

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.

Fantastic version of a classic song. Jackie's voice is the best.

There is only one voice around today like this!

14 Heart Attack - Demi Lovato

Demi is an amazingly talented artist with an inspiring past, and this is the epitome of a great song.

The tune of this song is truly sick! It's got super awesome beats, and Demi's voice... No words really... Best song.

When I first heard this song, well... It gave me a heart attack! Amazing song!

15 Timber - Pitbull

Laugh out loud. This should be ranked better than Radioactive and those other songs... except for The Monster, Clarity, and Treasure.

Love this song so much, it's definitely one of the better songs of 2013. It's absolutely hilarious. Well done, Pitbull and Kesha.

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

16 Because 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!

The old man's voice is nice.

17 My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light Em Up) - Fall Out Boy

Great song, it's their comeback single after their three-year hiatus.

Great song! Should at least be in the top ten. Great beat and sound.

Why is this at 352? One of the best songs of the year!

18 Burn - Ellie Goulding

Number 30?! What the heck? This is one of her top songs and one of the ones that made her even more famous. There are higher songs than this one, and the songs are awful. Ugh, this sucks.

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

This song is awesome. Get it to Number 1.

19 m.A.A.d city - Kendrick Lamar

The song that convinced me to listen to the album. The production is stunning, as is the storytelling.

This song is this generation's version of Nuthin' but a G Thang. It is that good. King Kendrick forever.

Way better than Miley's music. Look it up and listen!

20 Treasure - Bruno Mars

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

This song is fun to dance to! I loved Bruno Mars, and I still do, but especially when I was younger!

Great song, great artist, definitely something we rarely see nowadays is disco-like songs from the mainstream.

21 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

The only reason people hate this song is because of the really disturbing music video. The song is very emotional, and her voice fits it perfectly.

Greatest of all time.

This is the No. 1 song.

22 Stay - Rihanna

So sad and it's good.

This is what Say Something by Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World should be.

23 Do What U Want - Lady Gaga

Although I don't think it's Gaga's best, this song is catchy and groovy!

This song is great!

24 I Love It - Icona Pop

One of the best pop songs of the year. That beat!

I Love It is really catchy and so cool.

25 Do I Wanna Know? - Arctic Monkeys

Arctic Monkeyes are one of the very few rck bands today that can do true rock music that is both creative, intellegent and sucessefull. This song proves it and in the next twenty years I bet that people will still listen this song and recognize how good Arctic Monkeys were.

The fact that this is below Miley Cyrus saddens me deeply for the fate of music.

One of Arctic Monkeys' best songs so far, by far the best song of the year.
