Best Single of 2013 –>
Mutya Keisha Siobahn, “Flatline” — The original Sugababes are back! Their first single together in 12 years (from an album whose release seems destined to be botched when it eventually sees the light of day) is a collaboration with Blood Orange / Dev Hynes. And it could not be more infectious. The song crescendoes to an ecstatic and heart-breaking final chorus that, when it ends, begs you to start the whole thing over again. And again. And again.

The rest:
Betty Who, “Somebody Loves You”
Bruno Mars, “Gorilla”
Drake, “Hold On, We’re Going Home”
Haerts, “Wings”
Lana Del Rey, “Summertime Sadness (Lana Del Rey vs. Cedric Gervais)”
Lorde, “Royals / Team / Tennis Court” (I can’t pick)
Miley Cyrus, “We Can’t Stop”
Studio Killers, “Ode to the Bouncer”
The Preatures, “Is This How You Feel?”

Best Song that Wasn’t a Single: Disclosure, “January”
Best Cover: Capital Cities, “Nothing Compares 2 U”
Best Remix: HAIM, “Forever, Giorgio Moroder Remix”
