Burn MP3s to CD-R using WMP 10

I have some old 78s which I wanted to rip and convert to MP3s to my hard drive. I didn't like or understand the Sony proprietary software on my new Win XP/Home PS2 so I bought Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 and printed instructions from EMC to connect the computer to the turntable. I also printed two very helpful articles from C/Net and did it. I can't believe I was actually able to do this.
Using WMP 10, I can see and listen to my MP3s. I have 20 songs, 16 of which I would like to burn to a CD-R. The songs total up to 1:01:18 for 73.43 MBs. The CD-R is only 80 minutes long for a total of 700 MBs.
This is where I am lost. My songs are 1 hour, 1 minute, 18 seconds long while the CD-R is good for 80 minutes which means, to me, that I have too many songs. But, if my songs are only 73.43 MBs long and the CD-R is good for 700 MBs, I could add songs.
Can anyone explain this to me? I am stumped. Thank you.
