Vote For Your Favorite Songs - J - Je Bands

Posted on: September 15, 2008 7:05 pm
 

Good day everyone.  I hope this finds you all in good spirits and that your sports teams are doing well.  I'm a Kansas City sports fan so since I have very little to brag about, I have time to give you folks my latest entry of songs to vote for.  I want to thank all of the people who have taken the time to drop by and vote for their favorite songs.  Before we get started I'll post the results of the songs that advanced from the bands that start from the letter F.  I asked for 4 votes in the F's and there was a tie for fourth so I'll advance 5 songs to the playoff round from the bands that start with the letter F.  The songs advancing are...

  1. Cold As Ice - Foreigner
  2. Tuff Enuff - The Fabulous Thunderbirds
  3. Jukebox Hero - Foreigner
  4. Feels Like the First Time - Foreigner
  5. Don't Stop - Fleetwood Mac

I finally wisened up and asked for your help in giving me some bands for the next round last time, so from now on, I'm going to ask you guys to give me some band suggestions for the next letter.   The J bands were so many that I'll have to split it between two entries.   So if you folks can help me with classic rock bands that start with the letter K, it would be appreciated.  I've got a list prepared of Kansas and Kenny Wayne Shepherd songs, but not much else, so any suggestions from the peanut gallery will be appreciated, as I want to make this blog even better.   Remember, as always, my list of songs from the J thru Je is not a complete list, its merely a list of many popular songs.  If you wish to vote for a classic rock and roll songs thats not on the list, feel free to.  Since this list is pretty long and extensive, you may vote for up to to 6 songs this time.

    Thanks for the votes Tommy Gun and t-rock-atx.

    Tommy, you can write in all the Jackson 5 songs in you want.  You have up to 5 more votes if you wish.  KidDude was right in saying that I'm trying to limit the songs to rock/classic rock.  Personally I would classify Jackson 5 as pop.  If I reach into pop groups or modern country which kind of sounds like rock, the list will be too long.  Hell, I didn't even include Elvis Presley and he's the King of Rock and Roll.  But I realize that other peoples opinions will differ, thats why I allow people to pick songs that aren't listed. 

    • Doctor My Eyes - Jackson Browne - 5
    • The Pretender - Jackson Browne - 7
    •  The Load Out/Stay - Jackson Browne - 4
    • Somebody To Love - Jefferson Airplane - 3

    I don't think Lazer_Wright will mind me answering that for you.  If you read the text of his blog, you may vote for any song not  on his list.  Since this is a classic rock blog and since Jackson 5 songs are rarely played if ever on rock radio stations, that may be why the Jackson 5 was omitted or maybe just plain forgotten.

    Nothings Gonna Stop Us Now - Jefferson Starship.
