The 2013 Playlist

Seeing as another year is over I thought I'd compile a playlist for the year instead of my usual monthly edition. So many of these songs have amazing memories attached, such as my summer in Kavos or my 18th birthday, or I just plain love them. A few are a bit embarassing (Sunshine On Leith is an amazing movie okay) and you can definitely see some trends occurring - i.e a lot of Katy Perry & We The Kings. Without further adieu, I present to you my Top 50 Songs of 2013 (listen on YouTube).

(shoutout to my iTunes Top Played list for helping me put this together)



  1. have you looked at creating your playlist on spotify (or something similar) that way you can share and readers can click through to listen.

    1. I did used to do that, and was planning on it for this one, however more than half of the songs I'd chosen weren't available on Spotify. I might try put one together on YouTube instead actually!

  2. High School Never Ends is always appropriate!
