Vote for Your Favorite Songs - L Bands, Part 2

Posted on: September 30, 2008 4:33 pm
 

I want to thank each and every one of you who have kept this blog alive and well.  This, in my opinion is one of the best times of the year for sports.  Major League Baseball is starting the post-season, conference season is starting in NCAAF and the NFL is at the 1/4 mark.    I hope my little rock and roll blog can keep your attention for a few minutes every couple of days to keep thriving. 

Its been 12 days since I started the blog for the J bands, Part 2 and voting is now over for that particular entry.  That was the one that many of you said was soooo difficult to choose your 8 favorite songs.  And the votes reflected that, with a record number of 64 songs receiving at least one vote.  Upon tabulating all the votes, here are the 8 songs that advance to a playoff round...

  1. Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
  2. Imagine - John Lennon
  3. Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffett
  4. Centerfield - John Fogerty
  5. Jack and Diane - John Mellencamp
  6. Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
  7. You've Got Another Thing Coming - Judas Priest
  8. Time In a Bottle - Jim Croce

What is especially cool is that those 8 winners are represented by 8 different artists.

Now for the current vote.  This is a shorter list than usual.  46 songs listed from bands Lo through Ly.  As is always the case here, if you think of a rock and roll song in this category that I have not listed, you're allowed to vote for it.  Thanks to all of you who are giving me suggestions for upcoming bands/artists, just please keep it rock and roll.   Even though there are only 46 songs on my list and I usually allow only 1 vote for every 10-15 songs listed, there are alot of chart toppers and some real star power in these songs, so I'm allowuing for up to 5 votes for this entry.  There's my list...

  • Angry Eyes - Loggins & Messina

    • Angry Eyes - Loggins & Messina    Gotta love songs with instrumental breaks as good as this one has.
    • I Know a Little - Lynyrd Skynyrd    &nbs
      p; My favorite Skynyrd song out of many good ones. Saw them  in concert in Louisville two weeks before the plane crash.
    • Midnight Blue - Lou Gramm    Always a fan of Foreigner, so this is logical for me.
    • House at Pooh Corner - Loggins & Messina     I always thought there was some subliminal messaging here, at least more than was in PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON.
    • That Smell - Lynyrd Skynyrd   No subliminal message needed for this bluesy tune. "OAK TREE YOU'RE IN MY WAY"

    I'm sorry about that Scott.  I looked up Loggins and Messina and the song wasn't listed, so it got omitted.  The reason it wasn't listed was because it was exclusively released by Kenny Loggins, so my real error was not having the song listed in the K's.  I'm accepting votes for that song for Loggins and Messina since I stepped on it in the Ks.
