If you've managed to avoid hearing the biggest songs of 2013, congratulations. We hope you got a nice tan during your stay in radio-free utopia. For the rest of the pop-rock population, it's time to weigh in on which of these songs you think you could stand hearing again in the new year.
This isn't necessarily a collection of the best stuff or the catchiest stuff. Maybe it's the best most-overplayed stuff. Maybe it's the worst music played just the right amount of time. Regardless of whether you heard these songs a million times this year or for the first time right here, go ahead and vote for one that's better than the others — until the next big thing comes along.
Daft Punk, 'Get Lucky'
"She's up all night 'til the sun, I'm up all night to get some, she's up all night for good fun, I'm up all night to get lucky."
Miley Cyrus, 'We Can't Stop'
"So la da di da di, we like to party, dancing with Molly, doing whatever we want, this is our house, this is our rules."
"But everybody's like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece. Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash. We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair."
Robin Thicke, 'Blurred Lines'
"And that's why I'm gon' take a good girl. I know you want it, I know you want it, I know you want it. You're a good girl."
Katy Perry, 'Roar'
"I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire. 'Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar."
