Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs, The W Bands

Wow, we're almost at the end of the alphabet.  I'll be able to cover the X, Y and Z groups in the next entry, then we can head to the playoffs.  This has been a fun journey for me so far, and I've gained some e-friends through doing this.  Again, I wish to thank all of you who visit my blog and post their votes.   Its kept me at it through the alphabet. 

Before we go to the W songs, its time for me to announce the winning songs from the S Bands, Part 3.  I asked for 8 votes, and much to my happy surprise, there were 8 clear cut winners.  Following are the 8 songs that advance to the playoffs...

  8. Interstate Love Song - Stone Temple Pilots

Now to the part that brought you here today, the list of songs to vote on.  I've made a list of 99 rock songs by bands/artists in the W category.  This list may not include all rock acts in this category and it does not include every song done by these groups/artists, just the songs that are perceived to be their most popular or got more air time on the radio.  If there is a qualifying rock song you wish to vote for that isn't on the list, you may vote for it anyway.   I'll allow up to 9 votes in the category.   Without further ado, here is my list, have at it friends...

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.  I certainly had a quiet and peaceful one.  I stayed home this year rather than hitting the road to visit family.  I kind of missed them, yet my day was stress free.

Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs - The T Bands

Thanks to all of you who participated in the S band songs as there were 3 long parts.  If you just found me, there is still time to vote for songs in Part 2 and Part 3.  The link to those blog entries will be at your right hand margin towards the top of the page.  I'll now announce the winners to the most favorite songs by the S bands Part 1.  We also had a vote in on that round where we voted to determine a six-way tie in the P bands, Part 2.  I asked that you pick two of those songs.  As luck would have it, there was a two-way tie for second place.  Rather than spend any more time on that, I'll just advance the top three.   The 3 additional songs from the P bands, Pt 2 are

  1. Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison
  2. Amie - Pure Prairie League
  3. Message in a Bottle - Police.

Now for the results of the S Bands, Part 1.  I asked everyone to pick their 8 favorite songs from that list.  I'll be advancing 9 songs from that group as there was a 4-way tie for 6th place.   The nine songs to advance to the playoffs are...

  1. Black Magic Woman - Santana
  2. Mrs Robinson - Simon and Garfunkel
  3. Rock You Like a Hurricane - Scorpions
  4. Summer Breeze - Seals and Crofts
  5. Don't You (Forget About Me) - Simple Minds
  6. Oye Como Va - Santana
  7. Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins
  8. Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel
  9. The Boxer - Simon and Garfunkel

Well, I've gone and done something that I'll probably regret.  I've decided to try to pack all of the T songs in one entry.    I didn't get my standard 2 to page list of T groups so I used my own research, a few suggestions from Markstaff, and my own music library and have compiled a list of 96 songs.  Not all rock groups will be listed, as I'm sure I've missed a few and not all songs by the artist/groups that I have will be listed.  So if there is a rock song that's not on this list, feel free to vote for it as a write-in.  If I determine that I left out a group that should obviously have been on this list, I may add them to my next entry as there are very few artists/bands in the U and V category.  Other than Uriah Heep and Van Halen, I can't think of others off the top of my head at this moment.  I'm now going to do something else thats going to create myself alot of work, but its to be fair to everyone.  I'll allow for 10, yes, I said TEN votes for this category.  I'd usually go 8, but from looking at this list, I'd leave you all with too many hard decisions to nail it down to 8.   So 10 it is this time!   Here's my list...

  • No Time to Lose - Tarney Spencer Band
  • Everybody Wants to Rule the World - Tears for Fears

Vote For Your Favorite Rock Songs, Pt 3

Good day everyone!  I'm sorry that I've kept you waiting on part 3, but I've been a bit busy doing some other things, but we've now arrived at the final stage of the S bands.  Before I get to the list, the rules and all that stuff, I'll announce the winners for the R Bands, Part 2.   In that particular category I asked for you all to vote for your 8 favorite songs.  It also was a very popular entry as I got more responses than usual.  By the way the voting went, I'll assume they're are some Rolling Stones fans out there.  Anyway, there were 8 clear-cut winners with no ties for the final spot.   Here are the 8 songs that will advance to the post-season:

  1. Paint It, Black - Rolling Stones
  2. Satisfaction - Rolling Stones
  3. Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers
  4. You Can't Always Get What You Want - Rolling Stones
  5. Maggie May - Rod Stewart
  6. Sympathy For the Devil - Rolling Stones
  7. Addicted to Love - Robert Palmer 
  8. Simply Irresistable - Robert Palmer

The only thing that bothers me there is that no Rush songs got represented.  But hey, this is a democracy and the desires of the moderator really doesn't matter, does it?  Now, for the final part of the S bands, I have 86 or more songs in my list.  The list will pick up at Stone Temple Pilots and ends with System of the Down.  Not all groups/artists that may be considered rock and roll are included in this list, and heaven knows not all songs done by the groups on the list are included, just the ones I perceive to be the most popular.  Since there's over 80 songs on this list, I'll again allow for 8 votes.  Its going to be tough again for many of you, but we'll probably have at least 200 surviving songs after the first round to decide over in the playoffs.  A few more things before I make my list and hand this over for you to vote on.  I'll take considerations for T bands at this time, since this is the end of the S bands.  Also, if you're stuck between a couple of songs in narrowing down your list of 8, take a look at my new avatar, that may inspire you to made a good choice!    Without further ado, here's the list.....

  • Plush - Stone Temple Pilots (STP)

Thanks for all the replies on my latest entry, the list of songs from R bands, Part 2.  That drew more responses than any to date, I believe.  I am confindent that the S bands will also bring you out of the woodwork as there are many bands with many songs in this group.  It appears that I'll have to split the songs from the S bands/artists into 3 groups.  Part I will consist of Sa through Sm.   Before I start with the rules and the list, let me announce the winners for the P bands, Part 2 and ALERT you all of a special vote on this entry.  I asked for 7 votes on that entry.   I got 5 clear cut winners but there was a SIX WAY TIE for the final 2 spots.  Many times when there's a two way tie, I just advance an extra songs to the playoffs, but with six songs tied for 2 spots, I hesitate to advance 4 more songs than I had planned.   Here are the 5 clear cut winners in the P bands Part 2 category...

  1. Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - Police
  2. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
  3. Roxanne - Police
  4. Money - Pink Floyd
  5. Us and Them - Pink Floyd

The following 6 songs tied for the last 2 spots.   Please vote for 2 of these songs to supplement your voting on this entry.

  • Amie - Pure Prairie League
  • Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
  •  Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison
  • Another Brick In the Wall - Pink Floyd
  • Time - Pink Floyd
  • Message In a Bottle - Police

Now for this entry.  I've hand-picked 82 songs from 13 groups/artists for this entry.  This list does not include every rock band in this alphabetical category, nor does it include all of the songs froms the groups listed.  I picked the most popular songs by record sales and frequency on the airwaves.  So if you wish to pick a song not on this list done by a band that falls within this alphabetical category, feel free to vote for them.  All of these songs are by bands/artists listed S through Sm alphabetically.  I'll allow for up to 8 votes in this entry.  Remember, please vote 2 of the 6 songs listed above as well.  So you can cast up to 10 votes.  Without further ado, here's my list...

  • You Send Me - Sam Cooke

  • Chain Gang - Sam Cooke

Vote 4 Your Favorite Rock Songs - R Bands, Pt 2

I'm sure many of you have already voted today on people and issues far more important than my rock and roll, but in the spirit of election day, I thought I'd post my next entry.  Its time to vote for your favorite songs from bands/artists starting with the letter R, part 2.   Thanks to all of you who have contributed to my blog and you're votes, comments and kind words are always greatly appreciated.  Before we get into the nuts and bolts of this particular entry, its time for me to announce the songs that will advance from the P bands/artists, Part 1.   On that entry I asked for 5 votes, and for a change, I have 5 clear cut winners.  I also will announce the final winner from the M bands as there was a vote-in for the final song in that category.   Here are the songs you'll find in the playoffs.......

Now for the matter at hand.  I've compiled a list of 87 songs in this category.   The Red Hot Chili Peppers should have been listed in Part 1, but I omitted them in that round so they are included here.   Not all groups/artists in this alphabetical category are included, just the most significant rock bands and not all songs by those artists/bands are listed, just the ones perceived to be the most popular by yours truly.  If you wish to vote for a song that qualifies as rock and roll in this category thats not on the list, feel free to do so.  I'm asking that you vote for your 8 favorite songs from this list or in this particular category.   Here's my list. 

  • Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers (RHCP)

I already know that I'm going to hear alot of responses as to how hard this is going to be to limit the votes to 8, but if I ask for more than 1 vote for every 10 songs that we'll never get around to determining the greatest rock song of all time.  I've got a huge hunch as to what song of these 87 will get the most votes, but I won't divulge it so as to not skew the vote.  If any of you are curious as to what my suspicions are of the  top song  in this category, you can IM me your request after you've voted, and I'll IM back my prediction.   Anyway, enjoy the vote.  If you haven't voted on my last 2 entries, feel free to do so, the voting on those is in effect until I post my next entry, Part 1 of the S bands which will probably be in the next 3-5 days.  Speaking of voting, I'm leaving the house after I hit "submit" to do my patriotic duty.

Vote 4 Your Favorite Rock Songs - R Bands, Pt 1

Hello everyone.  I'm going through some serious baseball withdrawals already, and its still over 3 months until spring training starts.   My 2 consolations are my 1-6 Chiefs and my rock and roll blog.  Thanks to you folks, my choices aren't so awful.   Well, we've made it to the letter R already.  I've decided to split the R bands/artists as there were too many songs to put on one entry.   This entry will cover bands and artists starting with the letter R and running through the word Richard.  Part 2 will probably be posted Monday or Tuesday.  If anyone wants to suggest bands and artists for part 2, feel free to do so.  I've already got a long list of songs by the Rolling Stones, Robin Trower, Robert Palmer and Rush.  Any other ideas will be welcome, just remember what competition they're running up against.  

I've cut off the vote for your favorite songs from the O and Q bands and artists.  I asked for 5 votes for your favorite songs and once again there was a tie for fifth, but since it was only a two-way tie, I'll advance the top 6 songs from that category.   The 6 songs that advance to the playoffs in the order of votes received are.....

  1. Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
  2. Sitting On the Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding
  3. Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
  4. Wonderwall - Oasis
  5. We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions - Queen
  6. Under Pressure - Queen w/David Bowie

Now for the current issue.  I've listed nearly 70 songs for Part 1 of the R bands/artists.  I'll allow for 6 votes on this list of songs.   I do allow for write in votes as I have not listed ALL rock groups in the R-Ric category, nor have I listed ALL songs by the groups that I did list.  I    picked what I percieved to be the most popular rock songs in this specific category.   Without further ado, here's my list.  Pick your 6 favorites......

  • Man on the Silver Mountain - Rainbow
