top 100 songs list

Music has always been a part of my life and I can't imagine trudging through the low, boggy bits or the high, fun-filled experiences without it. One thing I suppose I am quite proud to admit is that I enjoy nearly all types of music, providing it stirs my soul and moves my feet. My brother in law was telling me how he had started a top 100 songs playlist and I thought,what are my top 100 songs? I have been carefully constructing playlists since my 18th birthday, but this playlist contains my top choices, that is, the songs that I hear and think, 'Man I love this song!'.
