    This is my current top 100 in chronological order. I have excluded anthologies (in some cases it was hard to tell where to draw the line) or interpretations of a written work (which is why there are some electronic works by "classical" composers but no orchestral music). A lot of my favourite artists in jazz, blues, country music, early rock or experimental music had to be left out as a result.
