Essential Listening: The Best Songs of 2013

Here are the best songs of 2013, as decided by moi. As with my album of the year list they arrive in no particular order. The only rule is that this list is populated by newly released material, no reissued stuff allowed. Not sure why, but that’s what I decided. WLWASIOH will return in the New Year, so I hope you all had a nice Christmas – if you believe in that sort of thing – and I’ll wish you a happy New Year in advance. Anyway enough talk and onto the list:
