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.

Wow so many good songs but again many songs are not here that are great.   You are very brave..................

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

It looks like the final will include Stairway to Heaven,  I voted against Stairway because it is not the best of Jimmy Paige.

Hey Jude was the Beatles biggest hit together or apart, if the seeds stay true there will be a showdown between Jude and Stairway.

If I am not around put my vote down for HEY JUDE.   Can't Get No Satisfactiopn has been at the top of the list many times but there are not a lot of stone's fans here, if you are a stonee (stoner) than please still vote.

No Problem Yankee

I think i'm going to push back the end of voting until I have a sufficient amount of votes since this seems to be moving slow

Well I can think of many songs that I would have in this run off instead of some of these, but like on my blog the voters have spoken some from these I will choose.


Stairway to Heaven

Baba O' Reilly a.k.a Teenage Wasteland

Born to be Wild

House of the Rising Sun

Freebird

Comfortably Numb

Sympathy for the Devil

Hey Jude


Only Comfortably Numb was a hard choice for me and I am sure it will not win it's match up. And thanks for referring to my blog, well at least the tie breaking rules I use there.
