Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs, Round 1, F-K

Posted on: December 21, 2008 11:40 am
 

Thanks for the great turnout in Round 1, A-E!  There's a chance to get as many as 40 different voters for that entry.  Of the 30 songs on that list, all but 2 of the songs have received at least one vote, so it appears for the most part that quality songs are advancing to these playoffs. 

Before we get to the F-K, lets revisit the W bands in the preliminary round.  That was a very long list in which I asked for 10 votes.  A total of 72 different songs received at least one vote.  After counting the votes I found a two-way tie for 10th place, so I'll just advance 11 songs to the playoffs from the W bands.   Here's the 11 winners...

  1. Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
  2. Baba O'Riley - The Who
  3. Pinball Wizard - The Who
  4. Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
  5. My Generation - The Who
  6. Who Are You - The Who
  7. Band on the Run - Wings
  8. Werewolves of London - Warren Zevon
  9. Here I Go Again - Whitesnake
  10. Is This Love - Whitesnake
  11. One Headlight - Wallflowers

While I was preparing for this particular entry I looked ahead at how the playoffs may shake out.  It looks like there will be 6 different matchups in the first round of playoffs.  All of these matchups will have in the neighborhood of 28-35 songs where we'll advance about 6 songs per contest.  So after this round is over, there should be 36 songs left standing for the second round.   For this particular entry, F-K, the list of winners total 32.  For this round and subsequent rounds, you can only vote for songs on the list.  I won't be voting anymore unless it is to break a tie.  This will also be my final entry before Christmas so I wish you all happy holidays!  I may squeeze in one more entry before New Years Day.  Without further ado, here is my list.  Vote for your six (6) favorite songs.

  • Cold As Ice - Foreigner
  • Tuff Enuff - The Fabulous Thunderbirds
  • Jukebox Hero - Foreigner
  • Feels Like the First Time - Foreigner

    I hope it isn't too late to add my thoughts here. This was an extremely tough list and I definitely would have liked to have chosen more than six songs. Here's the ones I picked after some serious deliberation...

    Jukebox Hero - Foreigner

    Don't Stop - Fleetwood Mac

    Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix

    Cats in the Cradle - Harry Chapin

    Time In a Bottle - Jim Croce

    Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N Roses

    Man, this really sucked because so many of those other songs could have been chosen!

    Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs, Round 1, F-K

    Since you said that voting is still open for this grouping, I will cast my votes;

  • Cold As Ice - Foreigner
  • Feels Like the First Time - Foreigner
  • Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald - Gordon Lightfoot
  • Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
  • Dust in the Wind - Kansas
  • Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas
  • Almost voted for one of the Heart entries, but I just couldn't put any of these out.  My Sharona was catchy, but I just don't know, I like all these better too.
