Best Albums and Songs of 2013: This Shit My Favorite Songs, You Just Don’t Know the Words

10 Jan

This is a television blog, but first and foremost it’s my blog and it should not surprise anyone that I have interests other than television (how I find time for that while watching 45 TV shows is a good question). Thus, I like to talk about them sometimes. Today, though, it’s simply to officially post my top 50 albums and top 100 songs of 2013. Sure, I may come back and realize how wrong I was and how much I hate some of these songs and albums later in the year, but now it’s on record so at least I’ll have something to compare it to.

First, in case you want to hear the list without having all the songs revealed for you – links to my top 40 songs on 8tracks

And next Spotify lists of my top 100 songs – first web based, second app-based.
