I’ve decided that I want to make a mixed tape. Only a cd, with about 100 mp3’s on it. 100 Best Songs. Subject to my opinion of course!! But the problem is, I can’t think of 100 songs off the top of my head, so I need suggestions. Unfortunately, this will be genre specific to exclude classical and musicals. But any era will do.

By no means will this be a definitive work. Obviously there are more than 100 fabulous songs. And this is a working list, which will be amended often.
