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.

Thanks Lazer for the kind words.  This has been fun.  For my final vote:

Wont Get fooled Again - The Who.


We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they were all flown in the last war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

Yeah!

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Is now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

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

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

 

And for me, the winner is . . .

 

Stairway to Heaven

 

I like both songs, but Stairway just crosses so many styles and is indicative of the influence Zeppelin has had overall on rock music. Won't Get Fooled Again is a great song, though, and is also one my favorites.

Congrats, Lazer, on following this endeavor out to the end.

Not climbing!! That would be.......Ooh, ooh, and shes

buying a stairway to heaven

And the all time verse, IMO...


There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

Stairway to Heaven....was a winner from the get go!!
