Dave's Top 150 Songs of All-time

It's been over 50 years of listeninig and collecting and it was tough coming up with this list...especially since new favorites are made everyday! This list is a work-in-progress. Sometimes I will hear a song and think..."hey, that should be on the list" and then I make a few changes! So, it is ever-changing. In the words of the great John Eddie, they are "more than just a song". Enjoy!
