Even though I've been involved in the music blogosphere for nearly five years now, 2013 was the year that I listened to the most music. At least, I made more of an effort to do so.

One thing I do know is that I saw more live music this year than ever before. I went as far as keeping a spreadsheet of the 161 artists I saw perform – a list that's complete with relatively detailed notes. You can check that sheet out HERE. And yes, earplugs are my best friend.

Below, I've selected my favorite shows (from the spreadsheet), favorite songs and favorite albums of 2013; as well as a Spotify playlist of all the songs that I enjoyed most this year. Feel free to comment below and let me know what your favorites were.
