Grybop's Best of 2013 (-#01 + Recap Video)

Postby Grybop » Thu Nov 28, 2013 12:16 am

Welcome to my 23rd year end chart, the only chart that lists any type of songs, from YouTube parodies to medieval hymns, from radio hits to unknown homemade recordings. The only thing these songs have in common is that I became familiar with them in the past 12 months.

My top 3 songs this year are pretty much already decided on and it's very likely that something unprecedented has occurred at the top. But I'll get back to that in about a month's time. For now, you can watch my recap video from last year.

See you soon.

Decided to switch back to a top 10 this year, first time since 2004! Kickin' off then... (Links to the songs hidden in the pics)


Guess I'm a top
cos ain't nobody ****' me


10 DWV - Boy is a bottom

Image

Hilarious at the start of the year, highlight of this year's Athens Gay Pride Parade, permanent resident of my phone playlist - whenever Girl on Fire came on the radio, I was simply disappointed it wasn't this song.

Baby love,
without you I’m a falling star


09 Laurentiu Duta ft. Andreea Banica - Shining Heart

Image

Funny how you can become attached to a harmless little song that sounds like 100 others, mostly because you associate it with the good times you had with someone you love. The sweet synthie hook helped a bit too.

Only top 10??? Disappointing!!!

No comments about 'Boy is a bottom' :lol:
'Shining Heart' is quite good, though your typical Romanian dance tune. (Reminds me somehow of 'Lonely Heart' froma few years back, and I HEART that one, go figure)

No words re: #10. :lol: :lol:
#9 reminds me of the songs I have to listen to for FSC every month...that said, it's not too bad.

Most of the songs this year are FSC-related!

When
did I
get so cynical?


08 Mr Fijiwiji feat. Coma - Cynical

Image

Chopped up vocals, dramatic piano in the dark and a question echoing in my head.

I see you everywhere
EVERYWHERE


07 Tomas Barfod feat. Nina Kinert - November skies

Image

This kept me company last winter, then resurfaced when I entered it in our FSC. Soundtrack to a trip I had in November.

We're up all night
to get funky


06 Daft Punk - Get Lucky

Image

I only added one album to my collection this year and it couldn't have been other than Random Access Memories. Had I made a top 20, a couple more cuts from the album would have been there too, probably Instant Crush and Giorgio by Moroder. The infectious first single is naturally the one I heard the most times, as it predictably became the ultimate song of summer 2013. I love these robots and they rarely disappoint.
