Top 100 songs of 2013 (tracks 70-61)

I'm Not Dancing - Tirzah & Micachu
I browsed through The Line Of Best Fit's best EPs of 2013 list, and found this gem. A catchy, unique sound. If you liked that, check out Inside Out, from the same EP

All I Know - Washed Out
(The album is a bit unvaried, most of the tracks sound the same. All I Know was the one I liked the most)

Lean - The National (from Hunger Games Catching Fire soundtrack)
(It sounds like a typical The National track from the 2010-2013 era, and good for them, that they didn't sell out. Elastic Heart is another track from the soundtrack I liked)

Counting - Autre Ne Veut
(Once heard never forgotten. Will get stored somewhere in your brain)

New Town Velocity – Johnny Marr
(Solo record from the guitarist of The Smiths. An underwhelming album, but love the single)

Melody Calling – The Vaccines
(Such a catchy song. Need to listen to the studio albums by these guys)

I’ll Never Be Happy Again - Eleanor Friedberger
(Maybe the lyrics are about how other people influence your state of mind. How falling in love could be the best part, and all down hill from there. Love the rhythm.)

Shot At The Night - The Killers (feat. M83)
(A great video. A new single that's included on their greatest hits album)

Detroit City – Texas
(8 years since their last record. Was on my summer playlist. Good road trip music)

California – Mazzy Star
(An absence of 17 years hasn't really changed her vocal. If you liked the band’s earlier work, this new collection will probably appeal to you. A welcome return)

Are you a fan of any of these artists? What's your favorite new music of 2013? As always, share your opinions in the comments. Tracks 60-51 coming soon!


  1. Not heard a single one of these. But I see lots of tracks from Catching Fire soundtrack being very popular this year.

  2. @Jaina: If you haven’t heard these 10 yet, you’re in for a treat :) Some good tracks on Catching Fire soundtrack, but also several “meh” tracks also, the album is worth a few listens.

  3. Oh, I love the new Mazzy Star. I haven't heard that song from the National and I love that band but I haven't bothered w/ the soundtrack. I just detest Coldplay.

    1. @thevoid99: Agree about Mazzy Star. That National track is pretty good. I don’t love Coldplay either, although, for me, “Atlas” is not bad, from Catching Fire soundtrack.

  4. I agree about Washed Out. Their music just kind of blurs together for me.

    "Lean" is really, really good. Can't believe I missed that one.

    1. Eric @ The Warning Sign: The National impressed me with ”Lean” for Catching Fire. It’s quite different to the other tracks on the soundtrack, so maybe they should have kept it for their next studio album instead :)

  5. I like The National and The Killers, but I haven't listened to those tracks yet. I'll have to check out the others too.

    1. @Josh: Those two new singles by The Killers (on their greatest hits album) struck a chord with me, excellent tracks.
      If you like The National, I think you'll enjoy "Lean"


What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
