How 2013 Are You? A Music Challenge

Some things are just made to be.  Like peanut butter and bananas.  Monday nights and football.  Bloody Marys and everything in the world.

And also like music and link ups.  After I wrote that post last week with the Christmas song guessing game, I was all set to do another one with my favorite songs of the year.  And then what do you know, Helene says she's going to host a link up about just that.

Truly meant to be.

I'm going to stick with original plan though (i.e. another guessing game).  So this time: Seriously, get your game face on.  Because you don't want to go disappointing Santa again.


I'm hoping that you already played my Christmas guessing game, that way I don't have to go over the lengthy and complicated instructions again.  If you haven't, please go back and read the directions.

And if you can't go back because my website doesn't work, that's okay: it's 2013 and we do that here.


1// Right from the start, you were a thief, you stole my heart.

2// I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies.

3// Feeling my way through the darkness, guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end but I know where to start.

4// What's your all time high, your good as it gets?

5// Melt Antarctica, savin’ Africa
I failed algebra and I miss you sometimes.

6// Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’ll be the one, if you want me to.

7// When I was in the third grade I thought that I was gay,
'Cause I could draw, my uncle was, and I kept my room straight.
** Hint: I don't think this song was released in 2013 but I only heard about it this year so it's 2013 on my blog.  Consider it a free point?
1// Just Give Me a Reason - P!nk ft. Nate Ruess


2//Royals - Lorde


3// Wake Me Up - Avicii


4// Mine Would be You - Blake Shelton


5// Best I Ever Had - Gavin DeGraw


6// Say Something - A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera


7// Same Love - Macklemore


0 Correct: I'm surprised you could play this game using Morse code.

1-2 Correct: You're the gold iPhone... trying so hard to be 2013 but sadly just not.


3-4 Correct: You're the Catholic Church... more 2013 than you used to be but still could use some work.

5-6 Correct: You're the Obamacare website... not perfect but why should that mean anything?

7 Correct: You're Miley Cyrus... no idea how you pulled this off, but you're the most 2013 thing that happened this year.


And that's all I've got.  Cheers to two more weeks of this pope-selfie-ing, Santa twerking year.  I'll be sad to see it go.

Kind of.

Happy Hump Day!

If you didn't like any of these songs or are just grumpy that I've compared you to the gold iPhone, head on over to Helene's blog where there's sure to be lots more where that came from.
