I made this list based only on what I have on this computer. My brain doesn't have the ability to think beyond that right now.

I think my problem is that I have too hard of a time distinguishing favorite songs of the moment from favorite songs of all time. For instance, at this moment in my life, I think M83's "Midnight City" is just as important to me as The Doobie Brothers' "Listen to the Music," but one has been a favorite of mine for more than two decades, and the other for less than a year. I just think I have too fast of a revolving door of new cherished songs to make a proper mix of new and old favorites.
