Top 50 Songs of 2013

Presented sadly without blurbs or embellishment the below is my Top 50 Songs of 2013. As always, I've restricted it to one song per artist simply as I find that this makes for a more satisfying list for all concerned. It's completely subjective, and in many cases the ordering is fairly arbitrary.

Normally I wouldn't allow songs from last year's list to make a second appearance, but I've made two exceptions this time around. In both cases they were only properly released (in the UK at least) in 2013, even if they were available to stream in 2012. One of these two had to be included, as it simply is THE song of the year in my heart. So without further ado, here are the songs. I've included links to streams (where possible).

Feel free to let me know what I've missed. I'm sure there's something...
