To be honest, it's hard to do lists like this. After the I'd Hit That 100 failed, I just don't trust that any of EWB's lists will ever get finished. Also, there are many disagreeances over the greatest songs of all time and I doubt such a diverse crowd (rap fans, rock fans, reggae fans, etc.) can agree on 100 songs that represent all genres of music. I don't know, that's just my thoughts. Prove me wrong and see if it works.
