MOKB had no trouble finding loads songs deserving of mention in our Best Songs of 2013 list. Initially, we only wanted to list fifty tracks, but soon found there were just too many good tracks, so we extended it to one hundred. While the order on this list could change on any given day, and we are certain there are some not mentioned that could be, these songs were the one’s that soundtracked the year that was 2013 for us. Feel free to agree, argue, and let us know what your list would look like. We have a blast doing this blog out of our love of music and look forward to continuing to bringing you the best in music in 2014.

So without further adieu, here is our one hundred best songs of 2013. Be sure to listen to the embedded Spotify playlist right below to hear most of them. We also have links for all the great tracks.

    I liked many of the same artists this year, just different songs from the releases. I would have also included….
    Reignwolf – Are You Satisfied?
    Vampire Weekend – Hannah Hunt
    Phosphorescent – Right On / Ride On
    Sam Smith – Not In That Way (Demo)
    Sam Smith – Money On My Mind

    Well, I included many of them in the SIRIUS XM Blog Radio playlists – http://www.myoldkentuckyblog.com/?p=44165 and http://www.myoldkentuckyblog.com/?p=44263
