In a few weeks’ time, 2013 will be halfway done — and an incredible year of popular music will already be in the books. From the resurgence of consummate pros like Justin Timberlake and Daft Punk to the breakout success of Icona Pop and Kacey Musgraves to spectacular performances like Beyonce’s Super Bowl soiree and Kanye West’s manic “SNL” takeover, this year has been host to some musical moments that will resonate long after 2013 ends. Now, it’s your turn to sound off on the most unforgettable pieces of pop over the past six months.
