Friday Lyric Quiz, No. 469 (The Smell Ya’ Later, 2013 Edition)

Farewell, 2013!

Bringing these back right around the end of the year meant no Christmas-carol edition (sorry, Mom!)  but I can get a year-in-review quiz in under the wire (ahem). At first, I thought I’d be unable to call up 10 popular songs from the past year, unaccustomed as I am to listening to anything that came after the heyday of Limp Bizkit, but after a little bit of research, lo and behold, I’d legitimately heard of ALL TEN OF THESE.  I’m not quite as out of it as I thought, perhaps.
