I'm gonna say E. 810

Admittedly I first tried it as a combination problem but my answer wasn't there. However, a sequence of songs tells me order matters.

so he can have a sequence of either 2 songs or 3 songs

2 songs: 10!/8! = 90

3 songs: 10!/7! = 720

then I added them together since it's either 2 OR 3 songs to get 810
