2020k’s Top 50 Songs of 2013

Lorde
In 2011 we had twenty top songs. 2012? Forty. The year, we’re taking an even more expansive look at the spectrum of music in the 2020k year end wrap up of 2013’s best tracks. Because of the long list, the top ten songs each have separate streaming/video embeds, while all fifty have a listening link as well as an accompanied Spotify list of applicable songs in the list.

If I wrote something about a specific artist or song this year, the number associated with the song will be clickable.
