Welcome to the newest Annual, the Annual 2013. Back again, its been a real pleasure selecting my favourite tracks from the past year.
As always the tracks are those I discovered or released between March 21st 2012 and March 21st 2013. There are 13 tracks this year. Kylie Minogue continues her Annual domination with two tracks this year. Timebomb was a huge hit in gay and dance circles, quickly selling more than the entire Aphrodite album in the US. Flower was also chosen, not only for its own brilliance, but in reference to the whole stunning Abbey Road Sessions. Anastacia, who is battling cancer for a second time, is featured again on the Annual. As are Will Young, Avicii (with the alias Tom Hangs), Calvin Harris, Vanbot, Eric Prydz (alias Pryda), Paulina Rubio, Agnes, David Guetta, and Alphabeat. In fact the only new comer is Alexandra Burke, though Sia who features with David Guetta is also new. Care is always used in those who make the Annual, including the order in which the songs appear on the list. So do get the tracks if you don't already own them, and put them in this playlist. There was a lot of good music, as I already referenced in Music of 2012. So yes, there was quite a few runner ups.
But the Annual 2013 contain those songs that spoke to me the most. So here it is:
