My Top 100 Audio Tracks Of The Moment

A “Top 100 Songs” meme has been going around, this one on FaceBook. I find it very difficult to choose favorites from music that I enjoy from so many different genres and artists. I made up this list of one hundred tracks based on what I happen to have available for play on my computer at the moment. Restricting it like this is the only way I could ever come up with just one hundred.

Song title links will open in a new tab or window. Most links go to YouTube, but a few tracks were only available at certain places. Thanks to M for passing this along to me, and to anyone else who feels the desire to post their own list.
