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

5. Kanye West – Black Skinhead

My mad love for the trailer of Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf Of Wall Street [1] has also translated to Kanye West’s song, regardless of the song’s lyricism.

4. Suede – Hit Me

The most fun Suede has sounded on their comeback album Bloodsports.

3. Foals – Late Night

Easily one of the best tracks from Holy Fire. I’m glad to say that I’ve been able to see them live, even if they were the opening act for Red Hot Chili Peppers in Lima two years ago.

2. Laura Mvula – Green Garden

What a soulful and upbeat tune. Production values and vocal power are stellar in Laura Mvula. If you enjoy this song, then go ahead and proceed to listen to Mvula’s Sing To The Moon album.

1. Daft Punk – Get Lucky

Tap your toes, snap your fingers, dance, smile… this song will make you want to do everything. Not only this is my favorite 2013 song at the moment, but it ranks high among my favorite Daft Punk songs and this is one of the best ways ever to use Pharrell Williams (vocally). And I also approve of Random Access Memories, in case you’re wondering.

Which songs were your favorite during the first half of 2013? Let me know about them.

      @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.
