The 100 “Man” song list

I was recently reading a post about the “100 man books list” and that got me thinking. Hey! why not a list of the “100 man song list”. You know, those songs/themes/soundtracks that stir all those manly feelings when you listen to them.

So I decided to dig in my music library to look for those songs and began constructing the list. While I was doing it, another light bulb went on (dangerous thing). What if I create part of the list and let you all chip in your proposals to complete it.

So with that in mind, I have put together the first 50 songs that I believe should be in every man playlist. Of course this list is badly biased by my age, personal tastes, first language and mood, but someone had to start somewhere right?

The order of appearance is completely random and I sure hope you like this first selection. looking forward to your contributions…
