2013: The Year in Music, Part 3 of 4

Again in 2013: More singles than albums. Not that the album is dead or anything. I just either don’t have as much time, or I have a shorter attention span.

Below is part 3 of 4 of some of my favorite songs of 2013. I love being able to find in-studio performances or decent live recordings (whenever possible) of these tunes to get a better feel for them. Compare to the studio recordings. Because it’s real fun, you guys.
