Vote For Your Favorite Song, Playoffs T-Z

Posted on: January 25, 2009 2:10 pm
 

First off I wish to apologize for the long delay since my last entries.  Other obligations and interests have pretty well consumed my time the past 7-10 days.   Anyway, welcome everyone to the final grouping of the first round of the rock and roll playoffs.  This is the 6th match-up of 6 groupings in this first round of playoffs.  Before I get into the rules and the list of the preliminary round winners, it is time to announce the winners of the L-N group.   There were 6 clear cut winners in a hotly contested match-up.  Two songs, Kashmir and Blinded By the Light fell just one short of creating a three-way tie for 6th place.   Here are the 6 that advance to the next round and the number of votes they received

  1. Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin (24)
  2. Freebird - Lynyrd Skynyrd (19)
  3. Enter Sandman - Metalica (15) tied with
  4. Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana (15)
  5. Nights In White Satin - Moody Blues (14)
  6. Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd (13)

As I stated above this is the 6th and final grouping of the first round of the playoffs.  The second round of playoffs will start on my next entry where we will have 18 songs to choose from and the top 8 songs will advance and then well do the same with the second list of 18 songs as well.  That will have us down to 16 songs and then we'll go with a Sweet 16 format to determine the outcome. 

In this group, I need 7 votes from everyone to determine which 7 songs will advance to the next round of the playoffs.  The only rule is that you must vote for songs on this list.   All other songs by the T-Z bands and artists were eliminated in the preliminary round.   Oh yes, rule 2...have fun and enjoy yourselves.  And thanks to everyone again who have participated in this project.  Also, if you haven't already voted on my previous 2 entries, there is still time to do so.  

Here is the list of 37 songs.  You have up to 7 votes.   Have fun boys and girls...
