Best Songs of 2013 (50-41)

It’s that wonderful time of year where we can look back and reflect on the year that was. I’m still working on both of my television lists, and there’s a little bit of a reprieve with the critics awards over the next couple of days, so I thought it would be fun to share my Top 60 songs of this past year. As you can probably tell by the list, the song choices are pretty much pop songs that were hits. But that’s the type of music I like and am drawn to, so why not be true to myself? Here are the first set of 10 songs. I’m not a huge music aficionado, so I don’t have a whole lot to say about the songs. I just included my favorite lyrics from the songs to go with pictures of the single cover and a screencap of the music video. Enjoy!

50. Katy Perry – “Unconditionally”

“Come just as you are to me
Don’t need apologies
Know that you are worthy
I’ll take your bad days with your good
Walk through the storm I would
I do it all because I love you, I love you”

49. Lady Gaga – “Dope”

“My heart would break without you
Might not awake without you
Been hurting low from living high for so long
I’m sorry, and I love you
Sing with me, “Bell Bottom Blue”
I’ll keep on searching for an answer cause I need you more than dope”

48. Lana Del Rey – “Young & Beautiful”

“Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful?”

47. Anna Kendrick – “Cups (When I’m Gone)”

“I’ve got my ticket for the long way ’round
Two bottle whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
Oh, I’m leaving tomorrow. What do you say?”

46. Fall Out Boy – “Young Volcanoes””

“Come on make it easy, say I never mattered
Run it up the flagpole
We will teach you how to make boys next door
Out of assholes”

45. Justin Timberlake – “Tunnel Vision”

“It might seem like I’m catching something. That’s because it’s true
I can’t deny it, and I won’t try it but I think that you know
I look around and everything I see is beautiful ’cause all I see is you
And I can’t deny it and I stand by it, and I won’t hide it anymore”

44. Capital Cities – “Safe and Sound”

“I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we’ll be safe and sound”

43. Betty Who – “Somebody Loves You”

“I’m around when your head is heavy
I’m around when your hands aren’t steady
I’m around when your day’s gone all wrong
I care that you feel at home
Cause I know that you feel alone
I think you’re going to miss me when I’m gone “

42. Bruno Mars – “When I Was Your Man”

“I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man “

41. Britney Spears – “Work Bitch”

“Go call the police
Go call the governor
I bring the trouble
That means the trouble y’all
I make it bubble up
Call me the bubbler
I am the bad bitch
The bitch that you love enough”
