I didn’t realize just how much went on in my life during 2013 until I tried to make one of those collages that everyone posts on New Years Eve and I couldn’t because there were too many important experiences, from traveling to London alone to graduating high school to having a Coachella weekend that will be hard to top. I decided to do this instead. This is a list of the songs that came out this year that I fell in love with and haven’t stopped listening to. This isn’t a best of list, because I’m not a music critic, nor do I care to pretend that I am one. It’s simply a list of songs that have stuck with me, that I’ve come to associate with so many moments of 2013.

New Slaves is on this list not only because it’s a great song, but because I got to see Kanye perform it from the front of the crowd when he came onstage at Camp Flog Gnaw. I saw the 1975 four times in 2013, the craziest and best moment of all those shows being when they performed Sex at their album release show in London (here’s a video, I’m dancing next to the tall kid with Justin Bieber circa 2010 hair in the front row). Buzzcut Season is one of those songs that I was waiting for my entire life. Resolution is one of those songs that I didn’t know I was waiting for until I heard it for the first time. Oblivion takes me back to an early morning dangling my legs and bare feet off of a deck and observing the jungle, high above a river in Costa Rica.

That’s the thing about music. Every song has a story of its own, from conception to release. Every song then takes on a new meaning and gains a new story with every person that hears it and feels something from it, and to me, that’s one of the best things in the world.

Songs are after the jump, this post is long enough as it is. They’re in alphabetical order because I really don’t know how else you could organize 75 songs, and I linked as many of them as I could either via Soundcloud or music video (if I think it’s worth watching). 

Happy New Years, and may 2014 bring as much joy and change and love and travel and wonderful music to your life as 2013 did to mine.
