You'll need to re-encode each song to a lower bit rate which will be a smaller file size.

Ideally your settings should be something around:
96kbps
44100Hz
Stereo

One solution is to burn it to a dvd as a data disk, however, you will not be able to play the mp3 in a player or car stereo.  If you need an actual audio cd, you may try this: http://www.clicknewz.com/1014/how-to-optimize-compress-mp3-files/

To my understanding, you cannot compress an mp3 and still use it on a audio cd, however you can decrease the bit rate to accomplish this task.

Burning as an Audio CD uncompresses the audio from the MP3 format to what is essentially the WAV format.  A CD is supposed to have "74- or 80-minute audio capacity and a 650 or 700 MB data capacity".  If you uncompress your MP3 and it is longer than 80 minutes or 700MB, it's not going to fit on your CDR.

The problem has nothing to do with the size of the file -- it has to do with the length in time.     When you write an audio CD it is written in CDA format, which is essentially (as noted above) a .WAV file.

Many modern CD players will play MP3 files -- the simplest thing to do is just write the file as an MP3 (which will only take 26MB) and use a player (or computer) that can play it in that format.

Otherwise, if you must have it in audio CD form, find a convenient split point and write two CDs.
