Throwback Thursday: 2013

Well it's time to recolorize your televisions. We're flying all the way back to 2013 to start going through the Billboard 200 in the same way we did the Hot 100. It's going to be slightly different due to Billboard's mysteriously missing archive data for album charts starting in 1983. But don't fret! It's Wikipedia to the rescue! Wikipedia has the Number One album for each week all the way back to sometime in the 40's so we'll always have something to throwback to, I just won't always be picking what it is. Ready? Ok. Here we goooooo

10. Florida Georgia Line - Here's to the Good Times
9. Tye Tribbett - Greater Than
8. Five Finger Death Punch - The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell: Volume 1
7. Imagine Dragons - Night Visions
6. Teen Beach Movie Soundtrack
5. Asking Alexandria - From Death to Destiny
4. Jay Z - Magna Carta...Holy Grail
3. Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines

1. Blurred Lines (featuring T.I. and Pharrell)
2. Take It Easy On Me
3. Ooo La La
4. Ain't No Hat 4 That [this is quite possibly my favorite song title of all time. other fun fact about this song: Big Daddy Alan Thicke got a cowriter credit]
5. Get In My Way
6. Give It 2 U (featuring Kendrick Lamar) [the original version had a verse from 2 Chainz, but it got leaked and became "the remix" and Kendrick recorded a verse for the "non-remix". The video you'll see below has both verses] 
7. Feel Good
8. Go Stupid 4 U
9. 4 The Rest of My Life
10. Top of the World
11. The Good Life

So probably everyone has heard the title track and can admit that, despite the controversial content (is it degrading to women? empowering to women?), is quite a catchy song. But I liked the third single better and have featured it in a video below. It peaked at #25 which is a crime even if you're only paying attention to the part where he talks about how she fell from heaven and then the music stops and he say "Angel." It's SO cheesy that I love it.

2. NOW 47
1. The Civil Wars - The Civil Wars
