What was the first song you listened to in 2013?

Two years ago, a friend of mine played Animal Collective right after the ball dropped, and I’m still pissed at him for it. This year, though, I made sure to hover near the laptop after the clock turned 12 a.m. and kisses were exchanged, just so I could put on “The Ice of Boston” by the Dismemberment Plan (“Pop open a bottle of bubbly, yeah/Here’s to another goddamn new year”) instead of, say, any of the songs list below, which according to the Short List, were the “most popular Spotify songs played on New Year’s Eve in [the U.K.].”
