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.

Well this really is a no lose situation, both songs are outstanding, and deserving of a win.  I see that Stairway is taking the lead, and if I'd have guessed in August who'd have won, it would be Stairway.  But in a similar vane as Muffin Man, I'm going with Won't Get Fooled Again. 

 I'm hoping this ends in a tie and you have to cast the deciding vote Lazer.  Come on people, make it end in a tie!

After much consideration...

 

 

 

I still couldn't decide.

But, I came back to the blog, and I noticed that most people were voting for Stairway to Heaven.  Because of this silly reason, I am voting for

Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

Just to make the vote as close as possible.Tongue out

I hope that voting for this reason doesn't anger anyone.  I just couldn't decide which one to vote for!

Lazer, thanks again for running this!  Are you planning on starting another competition?

Talk to you soon!

Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin is the greatest rock n roll song of all time.  This souldn't even be debatable.  It's like asking who's better Michael Vick or Dan Marino.  Stairway to Heaven enough said.

First off, thanks for acknowledging me.  I had forgotten that I was the first one to post a reply on this blog!  Thank YOU for running this and seeing it through from start to finish!Smile

Now for my vote...

Crap.  I was actually hoping that one of the two songs I picked last round would lose, so I wouldn't have to make this decision.  I love both of these songs so much...

Wow, I can't decide.

Dang.

 

I'll be back later.  I have to think about it.Surprised
