Choosing the best songs of the year is never an easy task.  So many songs come out in a single year that there’s no way to hear them all and some of them just tend to slip my mind after not hearing them for awhile.  But, with that said, I have attempted to list thirty of the songs that got stuck in my head more than most.  So with that said, I present to you my favorite thirty songs of 2013.

Also, be sure to check out the other MITB guys’ favorite songs of 2013.  We wanted to give you an idea for what each of us are into and stress that our site is a collaborative consisting of writers who have varying tastes in music but all share the same goal – presenting new and interesting music to our readers, leaving out the pretentiousness that can be found elsewhere across the interwebs.
