My Top 100 Songs of All Time
My friend Duane and I were having a discussion over dinner a couple weeks ago about what our favorite 100 songs of all time were. It was difficult to name them off the top of my head, but it was an interesting question.
So I spent the last 2 weeks compiling my list. I started with all my 5-star rated songs in iTunes, which was about 450 songs, and started removing songs one by one. It became really painful near the end. I cut a lot of songs I didn't want to. It's hard to decide which song out of a list of 101 is "the worst".
But after all the pain, here's the list I came up with, sorted by Artist.
Duane is also compiling his list. When it's done, I'll post it here too, and you can comment on which list you think is "better". I don't think you can say one person's opinion is better than another person's opinion, but that was Duane's idea. Everything is a contest to him.
