Top 100 Favourite Songs


BLURGH. There are too many. But off the top of my head, this a list of my top 100 favourite songs. Unlike my other 'favourite list' posts, I'm not going to put the whys and what have yous as I'd probably say similar things for all of them, and otherwise this would go on forever.

I could go on and on but we'd be here forever. What are some of your favourite songs? Music taste is funny; we're always changing what type of songs or artists we enjoy. Growing up I loved Rihanna, and I have several of her albums, but in recent years I've gone off her and found her to be a bit boring. A lot of the songs on this list are songs I have loved for years that I grew up loving, such as stuff by Alicia Keys and Michael Jackson. Artists like Prince, Terence Trent D'arby and Fishbone have all grown on me more in my mid-late teen years, and I consider those three to be musicians who inspire me a lot in terms of my musical sound - funk/rock with punk and soul elements.
