We're down to the nitty gritty now my friends. After 20 or more different entries and hundreds of songs we have now come down to the 4 best rock songs as voted by you. The Elite 8 had four match-ups. The results were 3 blow outs and one tie. Yes, a tie, so I have to cast a deciding vote which I really didn't want to do, but I've made my decision on it. Here are the results from the Elite 8:
NORTH DIVISION: Stairway to Heaven walked all over Hotel California by a 28-5 margin. Freebird had very little problem in pushing aside American Pie with a 21-11 victory.
SOUTH DIVISION: Won't Get Fooled Again also beat their opponent, Money by a 21-11 vote. The final contest between Bohemian Rhapsody and Born to Be Wild ended in a 16-16 tie. When we went to the playoff portion to the blog, I discontinued voting but told you I'd only vote to break a tie, so I have to do that now and its not an easy call as they are both top 10-15 songs in my personal feelings as well. In a very tough call, I'm going with Bohemian Rhapsody.
So this now puts us at 4 songs. Here's the ballot box, have at it ladies and gentlemen...
Stairway to Heaven - Led Zepplin (1) vs. Freebird - Lynyrd Skynyrd (3)
Won't Get Fooled Again - Who (1) vs. Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen (2)
