Thanks to all for participating. It's pretty amazing to me how close groups A thru D are in the voting so far. There are only a couple of songs that are looking like absolute locks right now, but who knows if many more will cast their votes over the next week or so. The funny thing is, I've had a few comments about how the poster actually liked a couple of the songs on the list. Well, I like some of them too. Just not the same ones that they did. You can ignore the deal with the football divisions; I am just using that to help me keep track of where I am as far as vote counting and posting. After round 1 is complete, I'll reseed everyone based on the number of votes they got.

Also, if you like this blog, be sure to check out two of my favorites. Lazer Wright's "Vote for your favorite rock songs" competition http://lazerwright.blogs.sportsline

 . Both are worth your time and if they are anything like me, they get pretty happy when they see that more people have voted.

Post a response and you'll definitely get fived and faved by me, and I hope you will 5 the other posters.

Here we go. Round 1, Part  2. Groups E through H. Vote for up to 2 songs that you hate per group.

Group E

  • Wonderful Christmastime, Paul McCartney
  • Kung Fu Fighting, Carl Douglas
  • Achy Breaky Heart, Billy Ray Cyrus
  • All By Myself, Eric Carmen

Group F                      

  • Funkytown, Lipps Inc.
  • Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, The Ohio Express
  • Mr. Roboto, Styx
  • Muskrat Love, Captain and Tenille

Group G

  • Saturday Night, Bay City Rollers
  • Feelings, Albert Morris
  • Seasons in the Sun, Terry Jacks
  • Rock Lobster, the B-52's

Group H

  • I'm Like a Bird, Nellie Furtado
  • You're Beautiful, James Blunt
  • Morning Train, Sheena Easton
  • Satellite, Dave Matthews Band

Since the station I usually have to listen to at work has already switched to Christmas music (just a little too early, don't you think?) I decided to throw in the 1st of  the 3 Christmas songs on the list. Apologies to Styx and Dave Matthews Band fans. They both put out some decent music... just not these 2 songs IMO. Guess we'll see what everyone else thinks. Again, you can vote for up to 2 songs you don't like in each group, but you don't have to if you just don't get sick thinking about 2 of the 4 songs from a group.

Thanks everyone, YO

This round is now over.

I actually dig the McCartney song, and I'm a fan of Kung Fu Fighting. Great groove in that tune!

  • Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, The Ohio Express

Man, this group is tough. Do I have a soft heart or a soft head if I admit I like Muskrat Love? Anybody ever heard America's version of it? Not too bad either. I like Mr. Roboto, especially the video. Great groove in Funkytown, too. Hard choices for me here. YO, will my vote get scotched if I only pick one?!?

Group G

  • Saturday Night, Bay City Rollers
  • Seasons in the Sun, Terry Jacks

Group G, not so tough. Rock Lobster is one of my all-time favorite songs. The rest in this group are awful with a capital A-W-F-U-L!

Group H

  • You're Beautiful, James Blunt
  • Morning Train, Sheena Easton

Easy pickings in Group H!

Cool blog, YO!

Group E - Achy Breaky Heart, Billy Ray Cyrus - Bad, Country and performed by Hannah Montana's dad - strike 3 your out.

Group F -
Muskrat Love, Captain and Tenille - Why? Who? How?

Group G -
Feelings, Albert Morris  - I got nothing - it's just not a good song.

Group H -
Satellite, Dave Matthews Band - When this first came out it was like Nirvana or the Beatles, you couldn't go anywhere without hearing it and now I hate it because I couldn't avoid it.

Hey Gator. All's well. I am out of town visiting family and haven't had much online time. I'll try to post the third group of songs on Friday. Thanks to all for the votes. See you soon, YO

Wow, haven't seem iamyo in here recently.  Hopefully everything's okay, especially heading in to Thanksgiving.  Can't wait for Pt. 3 to come out.  Anyway, for those of you who are interested, I just finished the Nov. 24th edition of 10 things I learned this week.  Figured iamyo wouldn't mind another shameless plug, especially since I gave him one in return.
