My Incredible List (Top 100 Songs of All Time)

>> Tuesday, December 16, 2008

*Original Posting Date - Saturday, July 26, 2008

So, I started this with my albums list, but Stevie (Contributor) had to one up me and do a Top 100 Songs List. I actually found this to be slightly easier than the Album List, but still hard as hell. I am sure I have missed a lot of songs, and I am sure I will make corrections. However, here it is.

*I cannot believe i missed such an important song. If you read my original list, you will notice that my list has gone from 100 to 101. I have added "Walking in Memphis" by Marc Cohn, its all the way up in the top ten. But I made an executive decision not to remove any songs, it was hard enough to trim my first draft from 175 down to 100. So, suck it.

I am the type of person who does not listen to only one genre of music. With all the songs that are out today both the past and recent, I don't think I could ever come up with my top 100! This is great work! I am glad that most of the songs in your list are also some of my favorites. Thank you for sharing this, I'll make sure I give them a listen.
