Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs - O & Q Bands

Hello, my internet friends!  Thanks for the continued participation in my rock and roll song vote off, or vote-in however you wish to call it.  First of all, I have not overlooked the P bands; they'll be next in line.  Due to the lack of O bands and Q bands, I've decided to combine them in this entry.  I've closed off the voting for the L bands, part II.  I asked for you all to vote for five songs in that category.  There was a tie for 5th, so I'll advance the top 6 songs to the end of the alphabet playoffs.   The winning tunes were...

  1. Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
  2. Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd
  3. Tuesday's Gone - Lynyrd Skynyrd
  4. Simple Man - Lynyrd Skynyrd  
  5. Gimme Three Steps - Lynyrd Skynyrd
  6. Working For the Weekend - Loverboy

By combining songs from the O bands and the Q bands, I was able to compile a list of over 70 songs for you all to look at.  These are not the only songs by these groups and they are probably not all the rock bands that start with the letters O or Q.  So if you wish to vote for a song that's not on this list, feel free to do so.  This list is only a helpful guideline.  Lets vote for your 5 favorite songs for this category.   Here's my list...

  • That Was a Crazy Game of Poker - O.A.R

    thanks for the ideas no_name.   Some of those I'll have in there.  I will have to split the P's.   And yes Bastyd, there will be a playoffs once I'm through the alphabet to get down to the greatest rock song of all time.  Also thanks for the votes fansince66 and jmw.

    Hello Lazer.  Glad to see you're still doing this.

    Sitting on the Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding     How can you do better than this?

    Tie Your Mother Down - Queen    Gets a vote just for the THEME!!!

    There Goes Another Love Song - Outlaws     Not their best, but still a nice change up for a Southern Rock band

    Under Pressure - Queen w/David Bowie     A tip of the hat to Bowie

    Harden My Heart - Quarterflash

         Looks like you're going to have to split the P bands into two sections, cuz I can already think of 12-15 songs.  I love this blog.

         One question,  after we get through all the lletters, are you going to have a run-off of all the letters winners for "The All-Time Greatest"?

    One last M band, although the song I'm voting for may be more R&B.  I'm replacing Monday, Monday since it got only one vote:

    Marvin Gaye -- Mercy, Mercy Me

    His I Heard It Through the Grapevine was rock and roll anyway (well, maybe Motown).

    I'm encouraging all posters to write this one in retroactively.

    Sorry about the formatting Lazer. This damn Google browser is freaking fast, but it lacks in other areas...like this. Next time, I won't use it to post to your blog. As usual, keep up the great work.
