September 22nd officially marks the end of summer 2013 in the Northern Hemisphere — and to celebrate the passing of time, we’ve decided to create a timeline to forever remember the songs currently trending on our site, as well as take a look back on the music that has colored and given life to our past summers, dating back to 2010. We would go even further, but that may be a task for later; Soundcloud playlist embeds are non-existent prior to that point. This is an ongoing article that will be updated annually.
