The Alternative Top 100 Songs of the Decade

The Horror!
The Horror!

Disgusted at the fact that Absoute Radio’s “Songs of the Decade” includes fifteen, yes, 15 songs by McFly, one of my good friends Daniel Bailey has created an alternative Top 100 songs of the Decade list. If you strongly disagree with any of these then leave a comment. I’ve also attached a link to download this playlist to iTunes 🙂

To import the playlist into iTunes:

1. Right click and save as.. the file here: Top 100 Songs of the Decade.
2. Open up iTunes
3. Go to File->Library-Import Playlist…
4. Select the text file it downloaded
5. Enjoy!!
