First off, I want to thank each and every one of you who have been participating in my rock music blog. You've helped make this more popular than I ever imagined it would be. I'm sorry that over the past several rounds that I haven't been as interactive as I have been in the past, things have gotten a bit busier for me. Several of you in the past entry asked me about me thoughts of the Chiefs new hire of Scott Pioli as our new GM. I say it was a great move, perhaps the best move by a Chiefs owner in the past 20 years. As for who we hire as a head coach, I'd guess that we'll either hire Russ Grimm or Todd Haley. I'm personally rooting that our offensive coordinator, Chan Gailey gets the job, but if it isn't him, I hope he's retained to remain our OC.
Okay, now back to the music. Its time for me to announce the winning songs from the O-R category. The 6 sings that received the most votes are...
- Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen - 20
- Crazy Train - Ozzy Osborne - 16
- Sitting on the Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding - 14
- You Can't Always Get What You Want - Rolling Stones - 13
- Money - Pink Floyd - 10
- Satisfaction - Rolling Stones -10
I have yet to total up the votes for the S round, but I'll post those within a few hours because thats been open for votes for two weeks now and its time to shut that one down and announce those winners too.
So now we have made it to the second round of the playoffs. There will be two installments in the second round. I will list the top 18 songs that you all voted for from the A-N bands and artists. My next entry will have the 18 winners in the O-Z category. For this entry I am asking everyone to cast up to 8 votes from my list of 18 songs. The top 8 vote getters will advance to round 3 and will be seeded according to vote total, pitting 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6 and 4 vs 5 in a bracket style.
The rules are few. You can only vote for songs on this list as all other songs from the A-N artists have been eliminated in earlier rounds. Rule number 2, you cannot vote for more than 8 songs. And most importantly, rule 3, have fun. Here is the list...
