100 Songs Everyone Should Have on His/Her iPod

Here is a list of great songs. These are not my favorite. I understand that my favorite songs aren't always great songs. For example, "Baby" by Justin Bieber isn't a musical masterpiece. I'm quite aware of that. However, you can bet I turn it up whenever it comes on.

This list, on the other hand, is comprised of songs that are not only my favorite but are, by all accounts, awesome.

So, if you do not know these songs, download them. You won't be sorry.
