It's been an amazing year of music at Radio 2. We've heard thousands of great songs from hundreds of artists across dozens of genres. Unfortunately, we had to narrow it down to a mere 100 for our end-of-year list. It wasn't easy, but after a great deal of debate, number crunching and heartache, we've managed to put together our top 100 songs of 2013.

You can listen to the countdown starting at 6 a.m. on Dec. 26, and come back to this space on Dec. 27 for a playlist of all 100 songs.
