Top Songs of 2013

best songs ath 2013We’ve put our pretty little heads together ladies and gentlemen to bring you our favorite songs from this past year.  It was a difficult task with our ever growing staff, but we feel like this list best represents the diverse taste of our staff.  Love it or hate it, it’s ours to call our own.  Hit play and put your head down or dance or shimmmy or drool or whatever works. Most of all we hope you hear something you missed, something you want to buy or something you want to see live.

Scroll past the playlist for full the run of the bestest songs ever this year.

If the song was featured on ATH, you have a link to downloads or individual streams opening in a new window so as to maintain playlist streaming goodness. Streaming only posts have one of them star things or notes that you can DL another track as a freebie. We are pretty surprised by how many tracks we fell in love with from listening to albums (hint, the album is not dead).
