20 Songs You Need in Your Life

I put together some songs that I think you need in your life. I am completely biased, but I think this list is pretty accurate. I also gave a little explanation on why I love each one, but most of them do not need any explanation!  Click “listen” for a direct link to each song. They are listed in no specific order.
