Top 40 Tracks of 2013


Getintothis presents the top tracks and singles which have been on constant rotation throughout 2013.

Last week Getintothis revealed our top 100 albums of 2013 – a veritable feast of sounds which have been a staple of our listening diet throughout the year.
As is customary, here’s our annual list of top tracks which have been doing the business on our jukebox too. As per, we’ve kept the tracks down to one per artist, this year we could easily have included a number by Kanye, Chvrches, Hookworms and various Liverpool musicians – but we like to spread the aural love.
For an insight of the Merseyside artists that are deserving of your listening time, check out our top 25 tracks of 2013 which we compiled earlier this year – the list could easily have been bulked up to around 75 but time, as always, is against us.
So find below a chunk of some of our favourite Merseyside sounds plus a whole heap of goodies from around the sonic galaxy. As always feel free to tweet us your favourites, the ones we missed out, and tracks for 2014 which we should be paying attention to.
But for now, here’s Getintothis‘ Top 40 Tracks of 2014.
