2013 was a huge year for EDM music. It was the year Avicii went mainstream, the year Eric Prydz finally became a household name, and the year Zedd became an international sensation with his hit "Clarity."
Picking the top five tracks of 2013 is a difficult task, especially because there were so many groundbreaking songs. But few of the songs hit the cultural landscape button like "Animals," by Martin Garrix. The song's trip-hop beats and musically mind-blowing synths made this song a number one hit all around the world.
Lana Del Rey might have experienced a backlash in 2012, but--thankfully--her song "Summertime Sadness" was remixed by Cedric Gervais and gave her a huge hit. Thankfully, Lana is working on more tracks with Gervais for her next album.
In many interviews, Zedd claims he had a hard time finding the right person to sing "Clarity" until he found the right voice in English singer Foxes. The song has gone on to sell more than 5 million copies on iTunes worldwide.
Without further ado, here is our list of the top five EDM songs from 2013.
