The Time has finally come to select the Greatest Song. For those of you who participated in my original blog and those who helped me select the top 16 I'm sorry it took me so long. I had to be very thorough with such a big topic and even after all that i know that I am going to have people who don't agree with the top 16. Actually I don't agree with some of them but I used popular vote to select them so I can't do anything about the songs. Enough about that here are the first round matchups.

first seeded Stairway to Heaven vs.sixteenth seeded Back in Black

Eighth seeded A Day in the Life vs. ninth seeded Baba O' Reilly a.k.a Teenage Wasteland

Fifth Seeded Born to be Wild  vs. twelfth seeded Can't Get No Satisfaction

Fourth Seeded House of the Rising Sun  vs. thirteenth seeded Johnny B. Goode

Sixth Seeded Freebird vs. eleventh seeded All Along the Watchtower

Third Seeded Layla vs. fourtheenth seeded Comfortably Numb

Seventh seeded Sympathy for the Devil  vs. tenth seeded The Long and Winding Road

Second seeded Hey Jude vs. fifteenth seeded I Can See for Miles

Voting will end 10 o'clock pm friday. Just like in the greatest band / solo act bracket I will not vote unless there is a tie at the end.

Actually Muffin man Close to the edge, roundabout,another brick in the wall, won't get fooled again, and smoke on the water all recieved a vote. Who knows if you would have voted we could have some of these songs in the top 16. Only 25 songs recieved 2 votes or more and only 6 songs recieved  3 votes or more, so who knows what could have happened.
