for loop only works properly on first loop

in the following batch file the for loop performs the correct function on the first loop and then on the following loops it will only echo $entry... how do i make it output
every time it loops?


for entry in "`cat list1.list`"

echo `pwd`/"$entry"



/mnt/sda5/music/"song 1"
"song 2"
"song 3"
"song 4"
"song 5"
