Muruch’s Top 50 Songs of 2013

Following are the fifty favorite songs of the year that I submitted to Contrast Podcast‘s forthcoming Festive 50. I have to add an honorable mention to “Cassiopeia” by Sara Bareilles. I adore the song but only heard The Blessed Unrest album this week – long after having scheduled my Top Songs and Top Albums lists and it’s impossible to cut anyone from either list to make room for Sara.
