Top Songs of 2013

I'm paying a lot more attention to pop music these days, primarily because I have a tween daughter who has an obsession with a certain British boy band, which forces me to keep up. But happily the soundtrack of our lives, as I drive about town, is not limited solely to the dulcet tones of the boys of One Direction. Some of my favorite songs of the year were actually in Billboard's list of top-ten singles for 2013

Here are my top ten faves:

"Home," by Phillip Phillips (13 weeks in top 10, peaked at #6)

"Thrift Shop," by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, featuring Wanz (21 weeks in top 10, peaked at #1)

"Mirrors," by Justin Timberlake (15 weeks in top 10, peaked at #2)

"Get Lucky," by Daft Punk, featuring Pharrell Williams (15 weeks in top 10, peaked at #2)

Wunderkind Lorde had a very good year

"Summertime Sadness (Remix)," by Lana Del Rey, featuring Cedric Gervais (8 weeks in top 10, peaked at #6)

These songs are still currently in the top ten:

"Royals," by Lorde (17 weeks in top 10, peaked at #1)

"Counting Stars," by OneRepublic (9 weeks in top 10, peaked at #3)

Lana Del Rey had a surprise hit

"The Monster," by Eminem featuring Rihanna (8 weeks in top 10, peaked at #1)

"Story of My Life," by One Direction (4 weeks in top 10, peaked at #6)

"Timber," by Pitbull featuring Kesha (6 weeks in top 10, peaked at #2)
