Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs, Pt 3

Posted on: November 18, 2008 11:20 am
 

Good day everyone!  I'm sorry that I've kept you waiting on part 3, but I've been a bit busy doing some other things, but we've now arrived at the final stage of the S bands.  Before I get to the list, the rules and all that stuff, I'll announce the winners for the R Bands, Part 2.   In that particular category I asked for you all to vote for your 8 favorite songs.  It also was a very popular entry as I got more responses than usual.  By the way the voting went, I'll assume they're are some Rolling Stones fans out there.  Anyway, there were 8 clear-cut winners with no ties for the final spot.   Here are the 8 songs that will advance to the post-season:

  1. Paint It, Black - Rolling Stones
  2. Satisfaction - Rolling Stones
  3. Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers
  4. You Can't Always Get What You Want - Rolling Stones
  5. Maggie May - Rod Stewart
  6. Sympathy For the Devil - Rolling Stones
  7. Addicted to Love - Robert Palmer 
  8. Simply Irresistable - Robert Palmer

The only thing that bothers me there is that no Rush songs got represented.  But hey, this is a democracy and the desires of the moderator really doesn't matter, does it?  Now, for the final part of the S bands, I have 86 or more songs in my list.  The list will pick up at Stone Temple Pilots and ends with System of the Down.  Not all groups/artists that may be considered rock and roll are included in this list, and heaven knows not all songs done by the groups on the list are included, just the ones I perceive to be the most popular.  Since there's over 80 songs on this list, I'll again allow for 8 votes.  Its going to be tough again for many of you, but we'll probably have at least 200 surviving songs after the first round to decide over in the playoffs.  A few more things before I make my list and hand this over for you to vote on.  I'll take considerations for T bands at this time, since this is the end of the S bands.  Also, if you're stuck between a couple of songs in narrowing down your list of 8, take a look at my new avatar, that may inspire you to made a good choice!    Without further ado, here's the list.....

Section 725,

You got the groups with the songs just right!   I'll probably post my next entry by Sunday, so you got until then to vote on the first two parts of the S bands as well.   When I do my next entry, I'll announce the winners of Part 1 of the S bands, but votes on the S bands part 2 and 3 can still go on.  Votes are valid for each group of songs until I announce the winners.  Thanks for your votes by the way!

Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs, Pt 3

Since you are in the S's I can only assume I missed quite a bit of this competition. I don't know how you keep track of the votes, when I create my field of 64 blog-offs, the first round or two are murder to keep track of the votes. Maybe because I do the tabulation at work, and it takes awhile and is hard to keep hidden from people wondering by. Anyway enough about me, here are my choices. I'm not good at remembering the names of songs, and a bunch of songs I like I don't even know the singers. I blame radio now that doesn't bother to tell you who the singer of a song is, or even the name of the song.

  • Creep - STP
  • Vasoline - STP
  • Stray Cat Strut - Stray Cats
  • Lady - Styx
  • Too Much Time On My Hands - Styx
  • Come Sail Away - Styx
  • Mr. Roboto - Styx
  • The Logical Song - Supertramp
