My Top 10 Singles: 2013

We’re a week into 2014 but I’m still “stuck” on a few songs that came out last year. These tunes NEVER seem to get old for me. I could listen to them on a loop and just turn it up louder and louder each time around. As I put this list together, it strikes me that I’ve never felt so strongly about a year-end list of songs. It may sound weird, but I think 2013 was a really solid year for SINGLES.

I also noticed a real common thread here – all are very epic sounding, strong tracks with lots of energy and soul.

Here are my favorite singles of 2013:

Tedeschi Trucks Band “Made Up Mind”

Paul McCartney “New”

The Head and The Heart “Shake”

Vampire Weekend “Unbelievers”

Deer Tick “The Dream’s In The Ditch”

The Wheeler Brothers “My Time”

Sons Of Fathers “Roots & Vine”

Eric Clapton “Gotta Get Over”

Amos Lee “The Man Who Wants You”

Serena Ryder “Stompa”

SONG: Sons Of Fathers

“Selfish Mind”

I can’t get over how gorgeous this tune is. I’ve been listening to the Sons Of Fathers album Burning Days a lot lately and the variety of sound from track to track is pretty impressive. These guys have a country twang at times, while other times they lean more towards this funky/rock vibe…and then there’s this, which just floors me:

SONG: Sons Of Fathers

“Roots & Vine”

I had never heard of this Texas-based band until my boss added this tune into our rotation at mvy the other day. Now I can’t stop listening to the song, which has hints of Mumford & Sons and Zac Brown Band. NPR called their sound an “impossible-to-define stew of country, folk, rock and gospel”. Whatever it is, it sounds GREAT:
