Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs - The T Bands

Posted on: November 22, 2008 12:02 pm
 

Thanks to all of you who participated in the S band songs as there were 3 long parts.  If you just found me, there is still time to vote for songs in Part 2 and Part 3.  The link to those blog entries will be at your right hand margin towards the top of the page.  I'll now announce the winners to the most favorite songs by the S bands Part 1.  We also had a vote in on that round where we voted to determine a six-way tie in the P bands, Part 2.  I asked that you pick two of those songs.  As luck would have it, there was a two-way tie for second place.  Rather than spend any more time on that, I'll just advance the top three.   The 3 additional songs from the P bands, Pt 2 are

  1. Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison
  2. Amie - Pure Prairie League
  3. Message in a Bottle - Police.

Now for the results of the S Bands, Part 1.  I asked everyone to pick their 8 favorite songs from that list.  I'll be advancing 9 songs from that group as there was a 4-way tie for 6th place.   The nine songs to advance to the playoffs are...

  1. Black Magic Woman - Santana
  2. Mrs Robinson - Simon and Garfunkel
  3. Rock You Like a Hurricane - Scorpions
  4. Summer Breeze - Seals and Crofts
  5. Don't You (Forget About Me) - Simple Minds
  6. Oye Como Va - Santana
  7. Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins
  8. Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
  9. The Boxer - Simon and Garfunkel

Well, I've gone and done something that I'll probably regret.  I've decided to try to pack all of the T songs in one entry.    I didn't get my standard 2 to page list of T groups so I used my own research, a few suggestions from Markstaff, and my own music library and have compiled a list of 96 songs.  Not all rock groups will be listed, as I'm sure I've missed a few and not all songs by the artist/groups that I have will be listed.  So if there is a rock song that's not on this list, feel free to vote for it as a write-in.  If I determine that I left out a group that should obviously have been on this list, I may add them to my next entry as there are very few artists/bands in the U and V category.  Other than Uriah Heep and Van Halen, I can't think of others off the top of my head at this moment.  I'm now going to do something else thats going to create myself alot of work, but its to be fair to everyone.  I'll allow for 10, yes, I said TEN votes for this category.  I'd usually go 8, but from looking at this list, I'd leave you all with too many hard decisions to nail it down to 8.   So 10 it is this time!   Here's my list...
