Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs - S Bands, I

Posted on: November 10, 2008 6:25 pm
 

Thanks for all the replies on my latest entry, the list of songs from R bands, Part 2.  That drew more responses than any to date, I believe.  I am confindent that the S bands will also bring you out of the woodwork as there are many bands with many songs in this group.  It appears that I'll have to split the songs from the S bands/artists into 3 groups.  Part I will consist of Sa through Sm.   Before I start with the rules and the list, let me announce the winners for the P bands, Part 2 and ALERT you all of a special vote on this entry.  I asked for 7 votes on that entry.   I got 5 clear cut winners but there was a SIX WAY TIE for the final 2 spots.  Many times when there's a two way tie, I just advance an extra songs to the playoffs, but with six songs tied for 2 spots, I hesitate to advance 4 more songs than I had planned.   Here are the 5 clear cut winners in the P bands Part 2 category...

  1. Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - Police
  2. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
  3. Roxanne - Police
  4. Money - Pink Floyd
  5. Us and Them - Pink Floyd

The following 6 songs tied for the last 2 spots.   Please vote for 2 of these songs to supplement your voting on this entry.

  • Amie - Pure Prairie League
  • Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
  •  Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison
  • Another Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd
  • Time - Pink Floyd
  • Message In a Bottle - Police

Now for this entry.  I've hand-picked 82 songs from 13 groups/artists for this entry.  This list does not include every rock band in this alphabetical category, nor does it include all of the songs froms the groups listed.  I picked the most popular songs by record sales and frequency on the airwaves.  So if you wish to pick a song not on this list done by a band that falls within this alphabetical category, feel free to vote for them.  All of these songs are by bands/artists listed S through Sm alphabetically.  I'll allow for up to 8 votes in this entry.  Remember, please vote 2 of the 6 songs listed above as well.  So you can cast up to 10 votes.  Without further ado, here's my list...

  • You Send Me - Sam Cooke

For the run-off, I choose Amie and Time

For the regular vote, I'll take All Star and Walking on the Sun by Smash Mouth, If It Makes You Happy and Everyday is a Winding Road by Sheryl Crow, The Zoo, Scorps, Mrs. Robinson, Cecilia and The Boxer, Simon and Garfunkel

My apologies to Sam Cooke and Santana for not choosing them as they are definitely worthy. Also, what about Smooth by Santana? IMO one of his best.

Good job as always!   YO
