Best of 2013*: The List

Screen shot 2013-12-27 at 10.14.37 AM

So every December, for the last couple years anyway, I’ve been compiling a list of my favorite songs from the previous 12 months: My year-end mixtape, so to say.

Now before we go forward, my list is a little different. And the ground rules are pretty simple. The list is not limited to songs from 2013 (or whatever year it happens to be). They can come from any year … with the following caveat: This list is songs I listened to A LOT in the past year. Some were old, most were new, but all meant something to me. And when I hear these songs in the future, I’ll probably think about 2013.

I’ve been passing out the mixtape for the last couple years, and this time, I’m sharing the track listing here. So enjoy.
