American Songbook Standards:
Top 100 Songs
Songs which have become known as standards or those comprising the great American songbook are generally popular songs from the early 20th century. These are songs from an era when songwriters were more at the forefront, penning songs for theater and film that were often recorded by multiple artists and spawned multiple chart versions.

Songs are ranked by their number of list appearances with ties being broken by overall points those songs amassed on those lists. Here are the top 100 songs listed with their songwriters:
