      Another tiebreaker eh? Losing my Religion gets the nod from me.

      Pride and Joy, Texas Flood, Stevie Ray Vaughan   &
      nbsp;    All Star, Walking on the Sun, Smashmouth     Black Hole Sun, Fell on Black Days, Soundgarden    
        and finally, a write-in for Higher Ground, Stevie Wonder

      Did you ever wonder why people take offense if you don't like their music? My stepson used to get so mad because he LOVED System of a Down and I thought it was just noise. To me, it's simply different tastes. I like broccoli and my boss hates it. It doesn't bother me about him though. What's the difference? Anyway, the reason I bring it up is... I Just Called to Say I Love You?    YUCK!!!!!!   No offense.
