SURPRISE! This is the beginning of a number of trips down memory lane I previously did not expect to make. Yet here I am, and I’m ready to present to you the first of hopefully many Top 100 K-Pop Music Videos of years past. This inaugural post I decided to start from the year prior to my first ever end of year playlist. 2014 was the first time I put together a list longer than 20 songs, and it was a Top 60 not 100 back then. 2013 was a rushed together Top 20 list at the time, and one that was good but not up to any standard I have for my newer lists.
So below you will find the playlist for the year of 2013, and I have to say I am super happy with the list I came up with in only about 2 to 3 weeks time. It gave me a nice break from working on the 2021 list, so I really dug in and made this list the best I could. I began by going through as many music videos as I could find and initially had about 176 songs compiled. I whittled that down and got revisit music I love and still listen to constantly, as well as find old favorites I forgot about. I hope everyone has a similar experience while checking out these 100 songs from 2013, and finds new music to love as well.
Currently this is a YouTube only playlist, similar to my 2014 list, as its hard to find some of the music on Spotify. I will eventually get around to it and compile whatever can be found, but I really wanted everyone to enjoy the music videos first. So prepare yourself and start enjoying these classic K-Pop songs! Will I revisit 2014 next or go to 2012? Only one way to find out, and that is to keep checking back!
Don’t forget to keep up with my Best Of playlists for 2021. They collect all the monthly playlists, and the Spotify one has extra songs not found in the YouTube version. You can visit my Intro To K-Pop page for the current year’s playlists being compiled, as well as past years Top 100 and other links to discover more K-Pop. Also join my Discord, where you can see the monthly playlists early, and talk K-Pop and other subjects with myself and other awesome people.
