Where can I find a list of common spanish words/phrases?

Does anyone know where I can find a list online of 500-1000 most common spanish words or phrases, along with their meanings? I searched a bit and found quite a few that had 50 or a 100 approximately, but I want more. I have a Spanish to English dictionary, but I want to print out a quick reference sheet. The list can be words or phrases, it doesnt matter too much.

Okay ... that post got munged. Let's try it again.

I subscribe to Flashcard Exchange. I like to use use Excel as an ersatz flashcard manipulator and they provide lists that can be imported. I'm a member, but I think non-members can run through the lists individually.

A word of unsolicited advice: Don't get too obsessed with static word lists. Learn things in units; something that provides at least a bit of meaningful context. It will help you in the long run. "Hand me the book" or "five green books" is much more useful than "book".

JokingClown, I've sent you my personal list of 1000+ phrases by E-mail, I don't know how useful it is going to be as a quick reference, though.

Leaving aside cultural expressions and idioms, I would imagine that the top 1000 words in most languages are the same, and you might find an easier time finding a list of the top 1000 English words, and then translate those.

Just a thought.
