Top 100

The story behing this "top 100" is quite amusing.  When I lived in Dubai I ran into an article on the St Louis Chronicle written by a rock critic abt Rolling Stone latest Top 100 songs of all time.  I drop him a mail asking for the list as it was impossible to get in the middle east.  Upon reception I share sent him a email telling that I thought the list was too american.  He challenged me to establish one and sent it to him.  With my other associates in Rock n Roll crime we established a list of 500 songs and gradually voted our top 100.  3 months laters I forward OUR list to him.  We did not get our name on the paper but got a pleasing reply saying that "indeed our list was anglosaxon but it was a good one that reflected his idea of rock n roll.  Below is the list.
