Top Tracks Of 2013

It took me a while to narrow my list down to fifty songs this year. Tons of great music came out, and the quality reached across all kinds of genres. Spotify has been a huge help in creating and sharing playlists, but like anything it isn’t perfect. There were two songs that I really wanted to include in my playlist but they aren’t available in the program yet. So, right at the top allow me to present to you “Banana Clipper” by Killer Mike & El-P featuring Big Boi

and Odetta Hartman’s “End Of The World,” which would have been near the top of the list for me.

Hope you enjoyed those. Now, here’s my top 50 tracks of 2013, starting with Chicago’s own The Oarsman at number 50 (I know it lists that song at number 1, that’s just the way the system works if you want to work your way down to number 1, which will say number 50).
