Seven months ago today I started the search for the greatest rock song of all time by the popular choice of those who would respond to my blog. The verdict is in. By a margin of 27 votes to 15, the winner was....
Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
Since the vote is over, I'd like to know what song you all actually like best as a personal favorite. Although Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" was the winner over the course of this contest, I was just curious what YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE SONG IS.
So please post that. For me, its pretty much a toss-up between 2 Styx songs. I like Come Sail Away and the Best of Times.
A number of you inquired as to what I'd do next with my blog after this rock and roll song vote-in. I've decided to move in the direction of baseball. I want to put together the consensus greatest baseball team of all time. So, I ask all of you, after listing what your favorite rock song of all time is, also give me who you think is the best catcher all time. I want to take in the names of the greatest catchers all time. Based on the response I get, on my next blog entry, we'll vote for the greatest catcher, either in an elite 8 format or maybe we'll just go straight for the #1 guy immediately, depending on what you all think might be more fun. While we vote on catchers on my next entry, I'll take nominees for first basemen. I like the idea of having a blog with alot of poster particaption and help. It seemed to work great on the rock blog, so I'll try it in assembling the greatest baseball team all time.
Thanks alot for the particpation from all of you in my rock and roll blog. You're all encouraged to continue to follow with the baseball theme with me.
By the way, shoot me who you like for the final four and the ultimate winner in the NCAA tournament. My final four are Louisville, Memphis, Pittsburgh and Oklahoma. My finals are Memphis and Oklahoma. My winner is Memphis. Sorry Sooner fans, I guess that makes you #2 twice in one year.
