1000 songs to hear before you die . . .

I bought a book awhile back full of 1000 jams that you must hear before you die, all and everything that music has had to offer over the years. From old school, to even older school, to world music, to hip hop, jazz, rock, soul etc. I am gonna start up posts with some different songs from the book every so often so you too can hear a variety of great music that you've never heard before, or perhaps some classics which you've forgotten, and maybe even a track or two will happen to be an all time favourite. Life is short, entertain your ears while you have the will to live and the ability to listen! . . .
