My Top Ten Tracks of 2013

I'm having a little fun for Friday and thought I'd look back again on a really important aspect of every year-- music, obviously. As the year came to an end, Pitchfork put out their Top 100 Tracks of 2013. To me, their lists are always ridiculously overly pretentious or predictable. I mean, how many of you know most of the bands on that lists, and three tracks for both Daft Punk and Kanye? Really? Really?

After an in depth conversation with my sister about how ridiculous Pitchfork's music preferences are, I decided to take a stab at my own version. However, to spare you the most ridiculous blog post of all time, I decided to stick with my top 10 tracks for 2013 (read-- top ten tracks I probably listened to the most in 2013). So here they are. I give you Heidi's Top 10 Tracks of 2013.

10. Wild Things - San Cisco

9. Railway - Boy

8. Heavy Bells - J. Roddy Walston & The Business

7. You Can Be All Kinds of Emotional - The Lone Bellow

6. Morning Song - The Avett Brothers

5. Farrah Fawcett Hair - Capital Cities

4. Departures (Blue Toowong Skies) - Bernard Fanning

3. Hope - Kopecky Family Band

2. Made Up Mind - Tedeschi Trucks Band

1. Just Beneath the Surface - Dawes

What are some of your favorite songs from the past year?


  1. Wow these songs are great!! Thanks!

  2. Great songs! I especially love Boy - "Railway"! Added to my 2014 Favorites album:)

    I am currently obsessed with "Julian" by Say Lou Lou and any Jaymes Young


  3. I love Dawes! I actually just saw them in concert in December! My favorite songs of theirs are "A Little Bit of Everything" and "Time Spent in Los Angeles." Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of their latest album. The lyrics don't have as much depth as their previous albums, and the melodies aren't as complex. However, I love the array of music you've put here! I've been looking for some new music to listen to, so I'm glad I can branch out. :) My favorite bands over the past year have included Lord Huron, Kodaline, The Head and The Heart, The Lumineers, Edward Sharpe, and Of Monsters and Men.
