7. The Doors: Light My Fire

The top songs, albums and artists influencing an incredible year in music

This souped-up remix of Kendrick Lamar’s hit, “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” makes for the ultimate party anthem. Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.D City album was released toward the end of 2012 but he dropped the original version of this single in March 2013. A song on daily repeat at CH HQ, it seems Jay-Z loved it as much as seemingly everyone else when he surprised the Compton rapper with his take on it. Lamar then added to it again, and the result of their collaborative effort is nothing short of hip-hop perfection. This track is sure to get a crowd bumping for years to come.
