Top 50 Singles Of 2013: 40-36
Their best single from an album filled with tracks that should have been singles. Sometimes all you want is a well-executed piece of radio pop fluff.
39. The Preatures - Is This How You Feel
Undeniably funky track from Down Under. Takes the best of early 80's Prince, performed by a band that sounds very little like him.
38. Darin - Check You Out
Darin's hookiest original song this year, which should have been the single to launch the somewhat bungled promotion for his latest album.
37. Emblem 3 - Chloe (You're The One I Want)
A surprise summer hit for me, these guys found a sound that hearkened back to the best of late 90's/early 00's sunny radio rock.
36. Ben Ivory - The Righteous Ones
A statement of intent if there ever was one, tied into an aggressive, smart dance track that deserved more recognition than it got.
