My Top 100 Songs... EVER!

Originally written: 14/08/07

UPDATE: This list is TERRIBLE, but somewhat reflect my 2007 taste. Please don't judge me, it is out of date beyond justification.

NOTE: This is my list, not your list. Therefore, you might disagree with some of my choices. I don't care, but just so you know these were based on my own personal taste as well as the culture impact it had on music itself. For example, while entry 35 (Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit) is not my favourite Nirvana song, it lead fourth a mass injection of grunge into the mainstream and that is why it has been included rather than something like "Heartshaped Box" which I definitely prefer, and so fourth. Otherwise, please enjoy, any suggestion and comments will be considered but probably won't be effective.
