Lily Collins’ Top 5 Songs Of 2013 Are Bursting With Girl Power

The 'Mortal Instruments' star gives MTV News her track picks for the year.

One would think that Lily Collins’s favorite song of 2013 would be that Demi Lovato jam that scored her make-out with Jamie Campbell Bower in “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.” And one, undoubtedly, would be wrong. We hit up the actress as ’13 draws to a close to find out what jams got to her, “heart by heart,” this year.

From Disclosure to Lorde, Collins has a pretty eclectic list of tunes on her end-of-year playlist. Check ‘em out and queue ‘em up below.

“I feel like it’s summer every time I hear this song and it always makes me want to dance.”

“This is the ultimate girls’ anthem and I just have to sing along. I love her.”

“I’ve been a huge Ellie fan for a while. Her voice is so distinctive and has this amazing mixture of being soothing and relaxing and yet energetic and strong.”

“This song just hits such strong emotions every time I hear it. Its tone is different than anything I’ve heard.”

Lorde‘s voice translates as such an old soul and her lyrics are so true and honest. This beat mixed with her voice is golden.”
