Trainwreck'd Society's Top 40 Songs of 2013

Feliz Ano Nuevo everybody, and greetings from Spain! It's long been the 1st for us over here, but for the rest of you just waking up from your up to late hangovers, and heavy thoughts of how impossible those new year resolutions you swore you were going to keep last night, I have a treat (or at least a fine distraction to check out before you "head to the gym") for all of you!  Let us begin! I have never been one for "singles".  I love songs!  I grew to loving music in the mid to late 1990′s when the "one hit wonder"'s were rampant. Things are different now, just as they were different in the decades that precluded my time of Dog's Eye View, Eagle Eye Cherry, or Soul Asylum listening times.  I understood, and still understand, the reason for "singles", in an entirely promotional sense, and I imagine the concept is still alive today. But in this age of being able to download exactly what you want, and discarding the rest, we no longer rely on clever marketing of single tracks as much as we rely on the sound a musician or band creates altogether.  Yes, this is debatable, and I may be wrong, but no one can stop me from thinking this at this precise second, not even myself.  What is even more strenuous on the soul is the immense amount of music that is at your fingertips these days.  There is just so much to listen to, it's pretty intimidating. Maybe that is why I have never done a list of my favorite songs for a year here at Trainwreck'd Society.  Like most of you out there, my "favorite song" probably changes quicker than the seasons of each year, so it seems ridiculous to try to make a list. But, this might as well be a season for change.  So, I thought I would try something new, and create a list of we here at Trainwreck'd Society considered to be the best songs of 2013.  In all reality, many of these songs most likely appear on albums that will very likely appear on our Top 37 1/2 Albums of 2013 list coming soon.  But in this situation, we get to pay respect to some truly talented artists that may not end up in the year-end album list, but were still very amazing.  Of course, on the other side of the spectrum, our favorite albums may not have a track that makes it on this list. Everything is subjective anyway, right? And if I ever stopped pussy footing around and make a year-end list longer than 37 albums, all of these artist might make the list.  I guess I can't break that all things Kevin Smith addicted attitude I have had for almost twenty years. So with that being said, I am excited to present to you, Trainwreck'd Society's Top 40 Songs of 2013! Note: Artist and Song Titles that are highlighted will provide a link to any previous posts on our site featuring said artist. Enjoy!  Read More
