Earlier this week we finally shared our favorite albums of 2023 and today we finally share 100 of our favorite songs of the year. I always enjoy the format of best songs even more as I feel it really gives you a broader look at the year as a whole and you get to include a lot of the new / unknown artists who may not have even had enough songs to release in a year. Nothing better than seeing a new band stacked right up against a Foo Fighters or Lana Del Rey. But that’s the beauty of these lists.

With that said, find out 100 favorite songs posted below, and you can find the whole list in Spotify playlist format here.
