The main thing you need to study up on is string input and manipulation. Your array of characters is going to hold just one string (song title), not 30 of them.

Once that's done, in your sorting block, you're doing the poorest variation of selection sort, which usually works out to poorer than bubble sort. Look up code for that, and for the means to copy strings.

Lastly, your loop controls for( i = 1; i <=n; i++ ) are setting a bad habit that will come back to bite you eventually. Generally write loop for array handling as for( i = 0; i < n; i++ ) so that you use the first element of the array and will not go past its end ( assuming n elements in the array).
