*crawls out of hiding place*

Don't mind me... I've just been listening to my copy of American Beauty/American Psycho since Saturday afternoon. :D

Also, I burned a copy for my commute to work already.

...Still wondering what I'm going to do with this massive flag from the pre-order packages.

So now, I don’t negotiate with insecurities / They’re gonna have to take a backseat / I know I have to love myself the way I want you to … love me / No more second guessing / No there’s no more questioning / I’ll be the one defining who I’m gonna be / No concealing feelings or changing seasonally / I’m gonna love myself the way I want you to … love me - Katy Perry, "Love Me"

What year would be complete for me without the annual mixtape? I’ve done this for a few years now, and over time it’s evolved. In its latest form, I create a Spotify playlist. This is my longest mixtape with 70 total songs this year.

Now, these songs are, for the most part, from this year. Actually, the only exception may be Josh Groban’s “Brave,” which was actually released December 18, 2012. I put it in the same boat I did as Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” last year. It came out in December of the previous year when we’re paying more attention to Christmas music, so I’ll excuse that.

How did these songs make the list? They’re a sampling of 2013 with my own personal bias. As such, I left out a lot of country and younger artists that I don’t really care for. So, I’d rather not hear I’m wrong about something or have left something out. If I left out your favorite, I suggest you make your own list because there is no way I could ever please everyone.

As a forewarning, there may be some offensive language in these songs, and I cannot be held responsible for the content of the songs or music videos. I’m not a fan of censorship in any form (though, this is a discussion and a half that goes beyond cursing in music).

As some of you know, every New Year’s Eve I post a playlist of songs from the past year that have been significant or just damn good. A few of these songs were released last year but exploded this year. Usually there is some bias (I know, where is the country?), but I try to include some different genres to mix things up. I don’t try to justify any of my choices, and I don’t make apologies for leaving off certain songs. At the end of the day, it’s just supposed to be a fun little set of songs for people to listen to.

This was the year of …infectious pop, shall we say? I believe that we generally get one pop album each year that blows everything else out of the water. This year? If I had said anything other than fun., you’d think I’d been living under a rock. OK, I kind of was, but it was a small rock. In any case, again, this list is not meant to be taken seriously or as a “Best of” list. It’s just 40 songs that were perhaps significant to the year or I just liked.

There are two playlists. One is created for Spotify, and the other is through Youtube, so if you want to watch the videos or don’t have access to Spotify, that’s there for you. Oh, and I’m not at all responsible for the content or language in any of these songs or videos. Some of these have the parental advisory label slapped on them in the store. Be aware of this. Um, and consider the last two songs on there sort of like bonus tracks. It officially ends with "We Are Young" (I thought it was only right to allow fun. to be the bookends to this playlist).

Let's start this from the happy ending... - Bon Jovi, "No Apologies"

As a work in progress for the entire year, the 2011scrapbook is my space to post anything and everything to document my year online.
