songs meme

I quite liked the meme where you compose a CD of songs that encapsulate who you are. However, it took me a long time to assemble the right list. The first cut had too many songs by far. I eliminated all the instrumentals, anything too transparently self-pitying (no "All By Myself"), anything too random (no "I am the Walrus"). I have to admit I'm rather guessing at the length, as I didn't bother to look up the running times and add them all up.
