Como mucha gente sabe, tenemos una página de recomendaciones, de cosas exquisitas, en Pixbox, el iTunes de Telefónica, donde se puede bajar toda la música y cine que quieras del mundo.

Cada semana nos centramos en el álbum de las semana y los diez álbumes imprescindibles, con comentarios y más recomendaciones.

Para Pixbox acabamos de realizar una lista de lo que llamamos “canciones mágicas”. Mago es un termino parsi, de los sacerdotes de Zaratrustra y que tiene relación con algunas pruebas más o menos científicas, desarrolladas por el Instituto Smithsonian y el profundo análisis de canciones que son únicas en la historia de la música popular.

Esta es la enorme lista de cien títulos, que no están todos los que debían ser, pero son 100 canciones mágicas para llevar siempre contigo.

Esta es la lista:
