Am I an idiot for thinking that I can only pick 100 songs to share with y’all and not feel guilty about all the other music that I’m leaving out? Is this list completely bias? Am I brain-dead from trying to write about why I love every single song on this list?
The answer is yes.
Reminder: this is a list of MY FAVORITE songs of the decade, not THE GREATEST songs of the decade. There is a key difference. Same rules apply to this list as they did for my favorite albums of the decade so far.
Also make sure to check out the spotify playlist with all these songs at the end of this list.

Almost. But of course there was plenty of other great non-electronic music to be heard this past month.
Here are my 20 songs for June 2013.
Man this is the kind of church I want to go to. Also, this video is the closest thing we’ll ever see to Larry David dancing (not actually Larry David though).
Make sure to check out Disclosure’s new album Settle, as it’s already appearing on many “Best Albums of 2013 So Far” lists.
