"Thousand" Songs

This is my 1,000th music blog post on Wax & Tracks! Hard to believe? For me, too! To celebrate that fact, here's a bunch of songs with the word "thousand" in their titles. Are there actually 1,000 songs here? No, that would be crazy! There's only 100. Which is also quite crazy! (And which took a couple of weeks to prepare.)
