Rodrigo’s Top 15 Favorite Singles (2013-I)

15. The Lonely Island – Spring Break Anthem

Read my thoughts on the song here.

14. Killswitch Engage – In Due Time

The lead singer has been changed, but Killswitch Engage still knows how to make good songs and this is one of them.

13. Union Cinema – Can’t Get Rid Of

I found out about this song by random chance [MV]. It’s also available in Spanish [1], Korean [2] and French [3]. Interesting and unusual way to make a single debut, but it works well enough for my ears thanks to its UK-influenced alternative rock sounds.

12. Paramore – Now

I have no idea how Paramore of all bands ended up here, but the song got stuck in my head and it’s one of the few songs I actually like from them.

11. Soil & “Pimp” Sessions with Shiina Ringo – Koroshiya Kiki Ippatsu

First time I ever listened to Shiina Ringo was through the final Tokyo Jihen album Color Bars, which was fun to listen. Anyways, Koroshiya Kiki Ippatsu is a fun song to listen to.

      @mirella, Until Tom Hiddleston recommends them.

        @Rodrigo, Nah, he only recommeds hipster music xD His musical taste is something I usually don’t agree with… except he does like Daft Punk. But I listened to the latest album before he recommended it.
        It still made me laugh when he sorta recommended Nicki Minaj’s Starships.

    I think I might have three or four matching tracks. I think it’s cheating, though, that MVs influence your picking of a song ;P

    • Rodrigo says:

      @amy, Now that you mention MVs, I didn’t pick Bad Motherfucker (which I forgot about it while making this). This list will change a lot by the end of the year, lol.

      I don’t think we’ll ever match in songs (but some of the top songs, we might). One, I’m not into the Asian music scene as you are. Two, you don’t care about the stuff I might like.
