Anyone who has read the book or watched the movie High Fidelity (PR6058.O689 H54 2000 and DVD 595, respectively) knows that making a list of the greatest songs will invite argument and that there is a definite art to making a mix tape. The writers and editors at Time took on both challenges, assembling a list of the "most extraordinary English-language popular recordings since the beginning of TIME magazine in 1923" and culling it into a 180-second mash-up of all the entries. Give it a listen, then argue amongst yourselves. Or head to the media center to hear the songs in their entirety.
