The Best Songs: Part I

I was thinking of trying to make a list of my favorite 100 songs of all time, but I feel like that might be too transient. Tastes change, and any list would be largely determined on my mood at the moment. So, a year ago I put together a list of my 100 favorite songs, which I'll post here now. And, every quarter year or so, I'm going to add another 25, and create an evolving favorite song list. So, here's the first 100 that I put together last year.
