Top 40 Favorite Songs of 2013

I had originally intended for this list to include my top 25 favorite songs of the year, but after realizing that there were around 50 candidates, I decided to make it a top 40. These are my top 40 favorite songs from 2013, listed in order based on how much I enjoyed them, not their merit. Happy New Years everyone and here’s hoping that, musically, 2014 is as good to us as 2013 was. Enjoy.
