Vote for Your Favorite Rock Songs - U&V Bands

Posted on: November 30, 2008 5:25 pm
 

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.  I certainly had a quiet and peaceful one.  I stayed home this year rather than hitting the road to visit family.  I kind of missed them, yet my day was stress free. 

Before going into the songs from the U and V bands, I'll announce some winners.   In the S bands, Part2, we had a vote-in from a previous entry and the winner of the vote in was It's the End of the World as we Know It - REM.  In part 2 of the S bands, I asked for 7 votes from everyone.  Since there was a 3 way tie for 7th place, I'll advance 9 songs as I really don't like doing these special vote ins.  The 9 songs that advance to the playoffs will be...

  1. Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden
  2. Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf
  3. Deacon Blues - Steely Dan
  4. Reelin' in the Years - Steely Dan
  5. Born to Be Wild - Steppenwolf
  6. Stuck in the Middle - Stealer's Wheel
  7. The Joker - Steve Miller Band
  8. Crossfire - Stevie Ray Vaughn
  9. Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughn

I have a list of 103 songs from bands and artists starting with the letters U and V.  Not all ROCK bands/artists are listed and not all songs done by the bands/artists are listed, only the songs that I felt would be the most popular.  If you wish to vote for a song thats not on the list, you may, I only ask that you keep it in the rock category.  I will allow for 10 votes in this category.   Any vote count that exceeds 10, only the first 10 songs listed will be credited with a vote.   I want to give special thanks to No_Name for giving me many suggestions for bands to use in this category.  On my next entry will be the W bands.  Any suggestions for bands/artists in that category will be appreciated.   Well, its time to roll here, so here's my list.   Vote for your 10 favorite songs...

    Hey JohnLennon, thanks for the plug and the compliment.

    No_Name,  I'll be doing one entry for just the W bands, but plan on covering XYZ all in the one afterward.   After that, the playoffs start.

    I plan on doing the W bands on Saturday the 6th.   Later today.

    Lazer --

    Are you going to do W-Z together?  Not sure how many W bands there are, but I'm pretty sure there aren't too many X-Z.
