2013 In Review: The 10 Best Songs Of The Year, Chosen By Our Editors

2013 wasn’t a particularly good year for pop music — at least when it came to albums. Sure, Beyonce climbed off her golden throne to snatch wigs at the 11th hour but the game’s biggest divas generally misfired and there wasn’t a lot of new talent coming through to pick up the slack.

While turning out a cohesive collection of songs proved impossible for most, there were still enough spectacular singles and overlooked album tracks to make our iPods buzz merrily over the past 12 months. See what each Idolator editor chose as their personal top 10 songs of the year after the jump.
