100 Best Songs of 2013

Eleanor Friedberger, “Stare at the Sun”


Eleanor Friedberger
Gary Wolstenholme/Redferns
88/100

"In the back of the taxi you turned off the TV/And read me a book on your phone," Friedberger sings at the opening of this whipsmart indie-rock tune. The clever lyrics are all about impermanent love in an impermanent world but the music moves and thrusts like vintage Modern Lovers or Richard Hell – proving some power sources have eternal life.
