I can’t believe I was able to put 100 together! After about 70, it got tough. There are a lot of albums I like, but I couldn’t name specific tracks off of them. Conversely, there were one or two tracks I loved dearly, but the album as a whole wasn’t really my thing. Maybe I should create a list of top 100 favorite songs or something like that, but definitely not anytime soon!
