Vote for Your Favorite Songs - Letter B Part 2

I'll list many songs done by the Rock and Roll groups for the last half of the B's.  Remember my music library alphabetises by first name rather than last, so for those who want to vote on that Jimmy Buffet song will have to wait till I get to the J's.  This is a partial list of songs, if I listed all the songs these groups performed, I'd be typing most of the day. 

Like the first half of the letter B, vote for your 4 favorite here as well.  If you haven't voted on my previous entries please do as there are ties to be broken.

Again, after I list the songs, I'll list my four picks.  Cut and paste or highlight and drag my entry onto your response when you vote if you know how.  If not just list your votes and I'll get back later and include your vote into the tally.

Here's the list....

Vote for Your Favorite Songs - B thru Billy Joel

It would be an unstatement to say that I was pleased with the response I got on my first entry.  Voting for favorite songs from number bands and bands starting with "A" can be continued until Sunday, August 24th.    Thanks to all of you who respond.

There are so many songs from bands with the letter B that I'll have to split it in half.  The Beatles, Bad Company and Billy Joel produced so many hit songs and other songs that strike a chord with people that I have a pageful.   So in the second half of the B's on my entry will have songs from other bands with many hits such as Billy Squier, Bob Seger, Bon Jovi and Boston. 

Again, this list is not complete as there are many other songs by bands in this alphabetical category.  Feel free to pick a song you don't see as long as it falls between B and Billy Joel.  Voting on this entry will go until Monday, August 25th. 

Since this list is a bit longer than the A's, you may choose up to 4 songs on this entry.  Please try to help in keeping score by cutting and pasting to vote total onto your entry when you vote.  If you're not good at cut and paste, thats fine, vote anyway, I'll get it straighted out.

Okay, remember, you can vote for 4.  Here's my list...

  • Every Time I think of You  -  The Babies
  • Burning Sky - Bad Company
  • Can't Get Enough - Bad Company
  • Feel Like Making Love - Bad Company
  • Ready For Love - Bad Company
  • Rock and Roll Fantasy - Bad Company

Vote for Your Favorite Song - Number Bands and A

This is my first blog entry so please excuse me if I seem nervous and turn a little red in the face.  Oh wait, you don't have to watch me give a speech.  Whew, thats a relief.   Anyhow, I'm Lazer_Wright and I guess you either like me a little or have heard of me, otherwise you wouldn't be here reading this.  What we're going to do here is vote on our favorite classic rock and roll songs.   I have a huge collection of classic rock and roll songs.  Enough of a collection that I estimate I can easily knock out my next 25-30 blog entries without having to worry about any "writer's block"  I'll leave this list of songs to vote on up for 3-7 days for voting before I move on to the next letter.  

In this blog entry I'm asking each of you to pick your 3 favorite songs from my list of songs from bands whose name starts with an A or begins with a number.   The songs we're picking are from the groups .38 Special, Abba, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Alan Parsons Project, Alice Cooper, America, Asia and a few other songs by A Bands.   I'll post a pretty lengthy list, but not nearly all the songs by these groups.  There are two ways to vote.  The first and preferred method would be to cut and paste the tabulated list of votes at the bottom and either add your vote to it.  I will start the vote on this entry.   If you're not good at cut and paste, simply just do an entry and say what  3 songs you like best.   Since this is a not complete list you may add a song to the list and vote for it if you wish.  If you're confused on the procedure, just post your question.  I'll check this out every few hours and answer any questions posed.   Without further ado, here's the list...

  • Hold On Loosely  -  .38 Special
  • Fantasy Girl - .38 Special
