Vote For Your Favorite Rock Song - THE FINALS!!!!

Posted on: March 8, 2009 9:47 pm

This journey that started on August 17th when I started this blog has now whittled its way from about 2000 songs down to 2 songs.   During that time I've made alot of e-contacts and e-friends and I wish to thank everyone who has helped out in this near 7 month endeavor.   I want to personally thank the following posters who were there and voted in my very first entry on August 17 who still actively vote here and seldom if ever missed a vote.   First, thank you Muffin Man, you broke the cherry of this blog way back in the As.  KidDude123 was the second to cast a vote and I don't believe he's missed a vote since.  Posters who were also came along on my maiden voyage and have voted many if not every time were MandoTime, jonnyteach, vegab, D2Moo, JohnOdin and Markstaff.   I want to also thank you frequent posters who came along during the journey afterwards and contributed consistenly such as goodfellas, sfrye4585, IGetNoRespect (you got mine brudda), Rhino3434, Valpo-Domer, Bluesman24, epozz, DomN8_onD, Canacorn, misterjbq, freebirdmaw, Section_725, ClevelandRocks, DeadheadTrea, No_Name (you helped improve this blog), colts13, KBrown, jmw10, ponie02, UncleFester, thatcobra, t-rock-atx, BuccinGator, GolfCoward, nine5seven, darkness132, Steeler3, edwardsfan99, mfarley51, silver, scullcracker, Conquistador1, journey819, hockeydad55, MajorEReckshun, BadgerinMaine, ToddinNC, Happy4Jets and iamyo.  There are more of you and I apologize for leaving you off.  The so called "improvements" that CBS has instituted in the past 2 months have driven some of my friends away.  I'm glad many of you have decided to stay. 

Oh yeah, I guess you wanna know what two songs its down to.  The final 4 had 4 hard hitting songs, but the final tallies weren't all that close.

Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin defeated Freebird - Lynyrd Skynyrd 25-13

Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who defeated Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen 22-17.

So the finals features the following match-up of 1 seed songs...

Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin  vs.  Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

Voting will go until 12 midnight Sunday March 15th.   On Monday Morning March 16, I'll post the winner in a new blog entry.   Enjoy the vote ladies and gentlemen and again, this has been fun.

Tremendous work throught this Lazer and glad to see you have your Superstar status back.  Well deserved.

My vote goes to Won't Get Fooled Again by the Who.  Both songs here are epic.

Thanks Lazer but this blog didn't need any improvement from anybody.  It's been great.


Stairway to Heaven gets my vote.

Thanks to all of you for the many kind words.  Actually when I started this I didn't know how it was going to end.  I originally was just going to do a round of A-Z.  About half of the way through the alphabet is when I decided since the participation was so much better than I had anticipated that I'd work out a playoff plan.   This thing really evolved.  In all honesty, the very first 4 or 5 entries were less inclusive as the only list of songs were the ones I had in my music library.  When I started getting alot of write in votes for some very good songs that I happened to not have, I reached out to you folks to help me out with some groups I may not have and several of you helped out in a big way.  I recall getting some nice lists from No_Name, Markstaff, KidDude and I think MuffinMan as well.  So you guys have been a big part of the popularity of this blog.  Thanks to you guys and everyone.

I want a good close vote too, but I don't really want to decide the tie-breaker.   I'll disclose which was my favorite song of the two in the end, but I don't want it to decide the winner. 

As far as what I'll blog about next...I'm not sure.  I've thought about it, but I haven't planned anything yet.   I'm actually more passionate about baseball than I am rock music, so I may do something baseball related.  Perhaps when I do my next entry I'll have something figured out enough by then to make an announcement, perhaps I won't.   Thats 3-4 days down the road....we'll see.

First of all, let me say that Freebird and Bohemian Rhapsody should have blown these two out of the water. But seeing these two, Stairway to Heaven should win it all.
