Ladies and Gentlemen, we are only a few days away from the start of our most ambitious tournament ever! I am grateful to everyone for participating in the preceding nomination process, but now the real fun begins! This thread will serve as your launching pad for the various stages of the tournament and will help track the various threads, results, and announcements.

The structure has been discussed at length in the main announcement thread but here it is to refresh anyone's memory or for anyone new:


There are 1,456 tracks nominated overall, divided into 14 time periods of five years within 8 decades, covering the last 70 years of popular music from the end of World War II to today (1945-2014).
The tournament will actually consist of 14 consecutive tournaments for each time period, followed by a face-off between the winners of each of the 14 five-year periods to determine the best piece of music of all time (or rather of the last 70 years... you know what I mean).
There will be three initial rounds, each going for about a month. The first two time periods (1945-1949 and 1950-1954) will only go through two rounds.
This will be followed by five rounds of playoffs: the initial two rounds followed by the quarterfinals, the semifinals, and the finals.
After the playoffs we will have 14 winners, each representing its time period. Seeded based on percentages acquired throughout the tournament, they will then go on to the Tournament Final, the ultimate showdown to determine our last song standing.


Yes, this will take a long time, and there will be lots of songs to listen to and many polls each day to vote on. But I believe this will be incredibly fun and interesting. I think everyone did a great job nominating a very eclectic mix of well known classics and more obscure gems, and voting on these, even in the early rounds, will be difficult, since everything is so good!

Note: each poll will be open for 7 days and any tiebreaker polls will be open for 4 days.



Without further ado, then, here is the schedule for Round 1. The lists have been randomized using random.org at least 10 times. Each poll will run for seven days in its decade-appropriate sub-forum and will contain seven nominations with the top five moving on.

Tracks in Round 2 have been ranked according to their percentage received in the preceding round (and then alphabetically), and groups were seeded World Cup-style, from top to bottom, across 16 (or 8) groups (in other words, from #1 to #16 seeded as first in groups 1 through 16, then #17 to #32, and so on). For the second round we will go through a similar process, but now there will be five nominations in each group with the top three picks moving on to Round 3. The winners of the first two time periods (1945-1949 and 1950-1954) will actually be moving on to the playoffs, so there won't be a third round for them, while the rest will be moving onto the third and final preliminary round. To refresh, the playoffs will pit the top 24 tracks from each time period in a direct one-and-done bracket, and the seeding will be accomplished by ranking the percentage of overall votes acquired by the song through the two or three preliminary rounds. For example, if a song from the first time period received 75% of the vote in Round 1 and 45% of the vote in Round 2, its cumulative percentage is 120% (or 60% of the available 200%).

Tracks in Round 3 have been ranked according to their cumulative percentage received in the preceding two rounds (and then alphabetically), and groups were seeded World Cup-style, from top to bottom, across 12 groups of four tracks. The top two tracks in each group will move onto the playoffs. Since there were half as many tracks for the first two time periods (1945-1949 and 1950-1955), we will be starting off with 1955-1959.

For the first round of the playoffs, the bottom 16 tracks (of 24 that made the playoffs from each time period) will face off against one another in order to take on the top 8 in the second round of the playoffs. The bracket structure being used can be seen here (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:24TeamBracket-Byes2). So in this first round it will be #16 vs. #17, #9 vs. #24, #13 vs. #20, #12 vs. #21, #14 vs. #19, #11 vs. #22, #15 vs. #18, and #10 vs. #23.

You just described 99% of what most people do on the internet. Unless you are running a business, it's just a diversion. What's the difference if we spend time voting on favorite novels, listening and commenting on music, or filling out basketball brackets?

Or watching cat videos; or clicking on "20 celebrities that got fat"; or seeing how many movies Johnny Depp has been in; or playing drop-3 games; or posting pictures of our lunch; or any other blah blah blah. None of it means anything.

I've found it interesting that even though quite a few artists had multiple songs nominated, I have yet to run across a group that has the same artist twice. Was this by design or completely by chance?

By design. But going forward it's going to be completely possible for a group to contain more than one track by the same artist.

This is meant to have fun, to listen to some great music, and make some tough decisions sometimes, but not as tough as at an actual ballot box. So please stick around, as this will be a very long process, but overall really fascinating.

I have a hard time voting in some threads. And what I mean is this: I have a hard time deciding whether to vote for a song just because it's quintessential to that era or because it's a good song. I'm seeing plenty of songs that I liked as a 12/13 year old, but wouldn't want to hear now, so I can't decide whether that counts as something worth voting for. :orely:

Wow, that second half of the 1985-1989 groups closed with lower participation than usual (we've had so far in most of the threads around up to 19-22 votes, and in these it was around 14-16), which in part resulted in some six tiebreaker polls! Crazy stuff!

Groups 1-8 for the 2005-2009 time period were a real struggle to get through. That probably had the lowest percentage of songs I didn't recognize at all behind maybe the group from the 40's.

I listened to all the songs but there were a lot that I just didn't connect with. There was even one group where I only voted for one song. I haven't had that happen in quite awhile.

The last polls of Round 1 closed today but we'll still have a few tiebreakers going until Wednesday. Therefore, Round 2 will begin on Monday, May 2.

For the first two time periods (1945-1949 and 1950-1954) this second round will be the last before the playoffs, so the songs that move on from there will be moving onto the playoffs and their seeding will be determined by the sum of their percentages earned in Round 1 and 2. The other 12 time periods will go though Round 3 to whittle the roster down even more, due to having twice as many nominations.

With today's new polls for the last groups of the '90s we will be starting the last week of Round 2 come Monday. Thanks again to everyone for participating and voting!

Once the second round is done, Round 3 will begin, which will be even more fun. The first two time periods (1945-1949 and 1950-1954) won't be taking part in the third round, so it will be the 12 other time periods, each with 12 groups of four songs. In each group the top two vote-getters will be promoted into the playoffs. This should be quite a battle...

At the conclusion of Round 3, the playoffs will begin with each of the 14 time periods having their Top 24 facing against one another. As a reminder, each song will be seeded according to the total of its percentage points earned in Rounds 1-3 (so how well a song does in a given poll matters quite a bit).

So the last polls of Round 3 have just been posted. That means that if there won't be any tiebreakers in this last grouping of polls, the Playoffs will begin on Monday, August 1.

Now that we're pretty much through three very long rounds of many many polls, I wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone for participating in the tournament. We have a core group of about 15-20 voters and if we can stay the course to the end we will have accomplished something pretty cool, in my opinion. I doubt I'll run another tournament any time soon, as it's a lot of work behind the scenes on a nearly daily basis, but it's also a lot of fun for me as well. We're getting very unexpected results, and now heading into the playoffs I think we will really have some fun battles.

Super unexpectedly after three pre-playoff rounds the Red Hot Chili Peppers own the first spot in three different time periods (1990-1994, 1995-1999, and 2005-2009). Queen has two number one spots (1975-1979 and 1980-84).

Just as a heads up, because all polls during the playoffs are one on one face-offs, there will be no more tiebreaker polls going forward. What that means is should a poll close with a tie, the tie will be broken by the stated votes or preferences in the thread, and if that's tied as well, we will need someone who did not vote to cast the deciding vote as a post in the thread.

Jon
08-05-2016, 09:45 PM
Maybe we could have the artists duel...pistols at dawn?

mae
08-06-2016, 10:32 AM
Also, here is a quick schedule overview for the rest of the tournament. Since we should not have any delays due to tiebreakers, unless something unforeseen happens, here's how the rest of the event will play out:

Playoffs Round 1: four weekday polls from August 1 to September 7
Playoffs Round 2: four weekday polls from September 19 to October 26
Quarterfinals: four weekday polls from November 7 to November 24 (Thanksgiving)
Semifinals: six weekday polls for the week of December 5-9
Finals: seven polls each day on December 19 and 20 (polls will run for 12 days instead of the typical 7 due to the holidays)
Tournament Finals: thirteen polls (1 to 4) each Monday from January 2 to January 30.

And here is the breakdown for that last Tournament Final. At the end of the 14 Finals we will have the top fourteen tracks each representing its five-year time period. These will be ranked from 1 to 14 based on their overall vote percentage acquired throughout the tournament, including the percentage from the preliminarily rounds and the playoffs. They will be seeded using this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:14TeamBracket-BigTenBasketball) bracket system. So the top four tracks get promoted to the Quarterfinals, while the bottom ten battle it out through two rounds to take them on. So the final Final will take place on January 30! The winner will be crowned on February 6, 2017! Nearly a year after the tournament started on March 14, 2016.

Oh wow! I had no idea he was actually still playing shows. That's awesome. I'm still bummed "Miserlou" and "The Wedge" were eliminated so early on. In Dick's honor I present my favorite of his:

He came around my area maybe 2 or 3 years ago, but we didn't make it so I didn't want to miss him this time because who know how long he'll be able to tour for. Him and his wife have a lot of medical issues I guess. He really did put on an awesome show though. Did a number of covers. He did House of the Rising Sun, Fever, some Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra. He also told tons of stories, might have talked as much as he actually played :lol: I wish he played more of his surf songs, but he ended with Miserlou which is my favorite so I can't complain. If he ever comes nearby you, I'd highly recommend going to see him.

Pablo is great at running these things. Unfortunately, we will never be able to do another movie tournament because this one will never end.

I swear you're going to have to add a new decade to this tournament by the time it's all said and done.

Anyway, is Smells Like Teen Spirit still alive? That's pretty much all I care about. That and any Beatles song should beat any other song it's against.

mae
09-10-2016, 04:31 PM
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is #2 in the 1990-1994 time period. Its opponent will be Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" in Round 2.

It is a very (very) long tournament, I realize that. But I knew that it was a huge undertaking going in and laid out my plan for this thing in a very detailed manner. I am very grateful to the core group of 15-25 voters we've had voting on these consistently from the beginning and I hope everyone makes it to the end, especially now that we've hit the home stretch so to speak. Round 2 of the playoffs begins next Monday and the winners will be moving onto the Quarterfinals. The choices will continually grow to be more difficult, which is where the fun is.

I would love to have another movie tournament, and we should have one next year. I won't be running it but maybe Feev or Heather would.

Our first set of Quarterfinals is ready:


Vaughn Monroe - Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend) (1949) 72.99%
Margaret Whiting and Johnny Mercer - Baby, It's Cold Outside (1949) 68.21%
Hank Williams - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry (1949) 63.57%
Vaughn Monroe - Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! (1945) 62.02%
The Andrews Sisters - Rum and Coca-Cola (1945) 61.67%
The Mills Brothers - Dream, Dream, Dream (1947) 55.83%
Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs - Foggy Mountain Breakdown (1949) 53.61%
Bing Crosby and The Andrews Sisters - Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive (1945) 52.29%


This is just a Top 8 ranking based on overall average vote percentage through Round 2 of the playoffs (including the preliminary rounds). Vaughn Monroe and The Andrews Sisters both have two songs going and could possibly square off in the Finals.

mae
09-29-2016, 01:52 PM
And the second set is ready as well:


The Chordettes - Mr. Sandman (1954) 86.45%
The Crew Cuts - Sh-Boom (Life Could Be a Dream) (1954) 83.78%
Bill Haley and His Comets - Rock Around the Clock (1954) 80.30%
Big Joe Turner - Shake, Rattle, and Roll (1954) 75.04%
Nat King Cole - Unforgettable (1952) 72.53%
Gene Kelly - Singin' in the Rain (1952) 69.52%
Muddy Waters - Hoochie Coochie Man (1954) 67.07%
Muddy Waters - Rollin' Stone (1950) 51.55%


Muddy with two songs in the Quarterfinals, and the way the brackets are set up, they can meet in the Finals :unsure:

And just a reminder, the standings and the percentages shown here do not matter as far as the brackets and placement within the rounds. However, the percentages will come into play when it's time to seed the 14 time period winners.

Pablo, how do you pick which two go up against each other? Just curious why Queen isn't being pitted against Queen, like the Beatles were in some earlier rounds. Or am I mistaken? I'm sure it's my bias, but I really would like some other artists to move forward so it's not only Queen going against Queen in the finals.

mae
10-11-2016, 05:27 PM
It's all up to the brackets, not me. I linked to it in the first post, but you can see the playoff bracket structure here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:24TeamBracket-Byes2

For the playoffs, the top 24 tracks in each time period were seeded 1 through 24 based on their overall average vote percentage earned during the preliminary rounds. Then we just proceeded to eliminate them in one-and-done face-offs as per the above bracket.

After the Finals of each time period, 14 winners will remain, each representing its era. They too will be ranked based on their overall average vote percentage earned up to that point and seeded like so: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:14TeamBracket-BigTenBasketball

To illustrate, here's a peek at my (very yuge!) Excel spreadsheet showing the 1970-1974 playoff race: https://i.imgur.com/GJZludB.png

Yes, definitely. Like the five of eight quarterfinalists from the 1965-1969 represented just by two artists. But such is the will of the people.

Here is the seventh set of Quarterfinals:


Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody (1975) 90.31%
Eagles - Hotel California (1976) 86.72%
Queen - We Are the Champions (1977) 77.50%
Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion (1975) 74.61%
Blue ÷yster Cult - (Don't Fear) The Reaper (1977) 68.81%
Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall (1979) 64.39%
Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb (1979) 64.29%
Fleetwood Mac - Go Your Own Way (1976) 62.04%


We have Queen and Floyd with two tracks each. And Aerosmith gets a second entry in their second time period.

mae
10-17-2016, 01:00 PM
The eighth set of Quarterfinals:


Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight (1981) 79.30%
The Police - Every Breath You Take (1983) 73.44%
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) (1983) 72.63%
Journey - Don't Stop Believin' (1981) 70.84%
AC/DC - Back in Black (1980) 70.57%
Michael Jackson - Thriller (1982) 69.36%
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - I Love Rock 'n' Roll (1981) 65.70%
Prince - Purple Rain (1984) 56.12%


This is only the second time period to have a song from each year within in, after the 1970-1974 era.

Bon Jovi - Livin' on a Prayer (1986) 78.90%
Guns N' Roses - Welcome to the Jungle (1987) 77.48%
Guns N' Roses - Paradise City (1987) 74.18%
A-Ha - Take On Me (1985) 73.44%
Aerosmith & Run DMC - Walk This Way (1986) 71.10%
REM - It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) (1987) 68.75%


GNR with three tracks and Aerosmith gets a third entry in their third time period (after skipping one).

mae
10-21-2016, 01:46 PM
The tenth set of Quarterfinals:


Metallica - Enter Sandman (1991) 79.46%
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit (1991) 78.12%
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge (1991) 77.49%
Bryan Adams - (Everything I Do) I Do It For You (1991) 72.31%
Nirvana - All Apologies (1993) 70.36%
Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun (1994) 64.94%
REM - Everybody Hurts (1993) 64.86%
Radiohead - Creep (1993) 60.63%


Nirvana with two entries here and REM gets their second entry in their second straight time period. And the top four tracks are from 1991 (cause as I've said because, that was a momentous year in music). Another interesting tidbit is that half of the songs are basically ballads.

mae
10-25-2016, 01:16 PM
The eleventh set of Quarterfinals:


Alanis Morissette - You Oughta Know (1995) 72.72%
No Doubt - Don't Speak (1995) 70.31%
Oasis - Wonderwall (1995) 69.00%
Seal - Kiss From a Rose (1995) 64.71%
Aerosmith - I Don't Want to Miss a Thing (1998) 64.55%
Smashing Pumpkins - 1979 (1995) 63.08%
Oasis - Champagne Supernova (1995) 60.25%
Sublime - Santeria (1996) 59.79%


So Oasis gets two entries and Aerosmith gets their fourth one in their fourth time period (again after skipping one). And crazily, six songs out of eight are from 1995. Plus, we don't have very many female acts left standing, but the top two here are by female vocalists, so that's pretty cool.

And thus the last four brackets of the second round of playoffs have just been posted! Thank you all who have been participating in the tournament thus far and are continuing your participation! We are now in the last stages of this incredible event, which wouldn't be possible without voters.

The Quarterfinals will begin on Monday, November 7, and the last brackets will go up on Tuesday, November 22, right before Thanksgiving. I will actually be away for the holiday from the 23rd till the 29th, but I will try to keep the polls updated on a daily basis.

Then the Semifinals will start and run the seven days of the week of December 5-11.

This gets us to the Finals for each time period, which will see seven polls start on December 19 and seven more on December 20, which will run for 12 days, until December 31 and January 1, respectively.

Tournament Finals then begin with polls each five Mondays of January 2017 until the final Final poll on January 30.

The last portion of the schedule will be updated in the first post soon.

Oops, forgot to mention that, of course, this is Cash's second entry in the Quarterfinals in his second time period. He's also got "I Walk the Line" in 1955-1959, obviously the biggest gap between eras for an entry.

The thirteenth set of Quarterfinals:


Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California (2006) 66.17%
System of a Down - B.Y.O.B. (2005) 65.03%
Gnarls Barkley - Crazy (2006) 63.99%

Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc. (2005) 57.95%
Lady Gaga - Bad Romance (2009) 55.05%
Mumford & Sons - Little Lion Man (2009) 54.03%


The Peppers get two more entries here in their second time period after "Under the Bridge", skipping two eras, for a total of three entries.

11-02-2016, 01:26 PM
So the last polls of our second round of the playoffs just closed and thus here is the fourteenth and final set of Quarterfinals:


Imagine Dragons - Radioactive (2012) 72.62%
Adele - Rolling in the Deep (2010) 66.36%
Adele - Skyfall (2012) 65.91%
Lorde - Royals (2013) 65.76%
Adele - Set Fire to the Rain (2011) 64.90%
Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk (2014) 63.95%
Hozier - Take Me to Church (2013) 57.96%
Psy - Gangnam Style (2012) 57.85%


Adele with a whopping three entries here (each from a different, successive year), and we have a song from each year of the era for only the fourth time (out of 14 total). Also, half the entries are by ladies, and Psy represents our second non-English track left standing (after "La Bamba", but we didn't have many to begin with). Interestingly enough, none of entries is particularly pure rock, which our previous eras seem to favor. Could be just the sign of the times, I guess.

And as stated earlier, the schedule has been updated in the first post, so after a very short break, the Quarterfinals will begin on Monday the 7th! :excited:

The last four brackets of the Quarterfinals just went up. That means that once this round is done, we will be left with just 56 tracks in all, four per time period. For the record, we started out with 1,456 tracks. I know it took a long time to get here (the tournament announcement thread was started exactly a year ago tomorrow and the first nomination threads went up last December 5, which is when the Semifinals will begin). As this is Thanksgiving week here in the US, I would like to say how thankful I am for our membership and those of you who have been tirelessly participating in this crazy undertaking. It's lots and lots of nearly daily work for a year now for me, but it's also been a pleasure and I hope it has been fun for everybody involved (and sorry for inconveniencing anyone that isn't as poll-inclined). We are very nearly done now, and the voting will only get more difficult as we collectively have picked the very best 56 tracks of the last 70 years of popular music. By the end of the year we will have a finalist from each of the 14 five-year periods from 1945 to 2014, and from that bunch we'll get to pick one ultimate best song as deemed by the esteemed membership of this finest forum.

Thank you, Jean and everyone! Today the Semifinals are finally underway. There will be four polls a day each day from Monday till Tuesday. The winners in each era's two semifinals will then meet in that time period's Final, and the winner of that will represent its era during the Tournament Final, our ultimate stage.

12-12-2016, 01:41 PM
Out first two Finals are set!

In the 1945-1949 era, the finalists are Vaughn Monroe - Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! (1945) and Vaughn Monroe - Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend) (1949). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #5 and #10 seeds respectively.

In the 1950-1954 era, the finalists are Nat King Cole - Unforgettable (1952) and The Chordettes - Mr. Sandman (1954). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #4 and #3 seeds respectively.

mae
12-13-2016, 02:09 PM
The next two Finals are also set:

In the 1955-1959 era, the finalists are Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode (1958) and Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire (1957). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #1 and #2 seeds respectively.

In the 1960-1964 era, the finalists are Ben E. King - Stand By Me (1961) and Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence (1964). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #5 and #6 seeds respectively.

mae
12-14-2016, 02:56 PM
The next two Finals are set:

In the 1965-1969 era, the finalists are The Mamas and the Papas - California Dreamin' (1966) and Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bad Moon Rising (1969). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #4 and #3 seeds respectively.

In the 1970-1974 era, the finalists are Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama (1974) and Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (1971). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #1 and #6 seeds respectively.

The next two Finals are set:

In the 1975-1979 era, the finalists are Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody (1975) and Eagles - Hotel California (1976). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #1 and #2 seeds respectively.

In the 1980-1984 era, the finalists are Michael Jackson - Thriller (1982) and Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight (1981). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #9 and #2 seeds respectively.

mae
12-16-2016, 02:07 PM
The next two Finals are set:

In the 1985-1989 era, the finalists are Guns N' Roses - Welcome to the Jungle (1987) and Tom Petty - Free Fallin' (1989). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #4 and #2 seeds respectively.

In the 1990-1994 era, the finalists are Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge (1991) and Metallica - Enter Sandman (1991). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #1 and #3 seeds respectively.

This is the first time we have a final between songs from the same year (1991). That was an amazing year in music, so it's only right.

mae
12-17-2016, 11:18 AM
The next two Finals are set:

In the 1995-1999 era, the finalists are No Doubt - Don't Speak (1995) and Seal - Kiss From a Rose (1995). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #5 and #10 seeds respectively.

In the 2000-2004 era, the finalists are Johnny Cash - Hurt (2002) and Michael Andrews feat. Gary Jules - Mad World (2002). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #5 and #23 (next to last) seeds respectively.

Amazingly, after nine time period each with a different year represented in their finals, the last three eras are all finalists from the same year (1991, 1995, 2002).

mae
12-18-2016, 08:56 AM
The last two Finals are set:

In the 2005-2009 era, the finalists are Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California (2006) and Gnarls Barkley - Crazy (2006). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #1 and #3 seeds respectively.

In the 2010-2014 era, the finalists are Adele - Set Fire to the Rain (2011) and Hozier - Take Me to Church (2013). Going into the playoffs, these two were the #13 and #19 seeds respectively.

This makes it four time period Finals in a row with one year represented (1991, 1995, 2002, and 2006), and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are the only artist represented in two different eras (1990-1994 and 2005-2009), while Vaughn Monroe is represented twice in the same time period (1945-1949).

By the way, I just checked, and none of the finalists ever had to go through a tiebreaker. I thought that was neat. There were a lot of them.

mae
12-18-2016, 09:01 AM
So, this means our fourteen Finals are all set and will commence on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, December 19, the first seven Finals will go up, from 1945-1949 to 1975-1979. Then the next day, the remaining seven will go up, from 1980-1984 to 2010-2014.

Each poll will run for twelve days, as opposed to the usual seven. This is due to the holiday season and because these are the most important polls, since we'll be choosing the best track to represent a specific era in music. Polls will close on December 31 and January 1, with the Tournament Final commencing on Monday, January 2.

12-19-2016, 02:06 PM
Looking at the songs that are left, I know I'll have to choose one over the other in each time period. But for the most part, I won't be upset if the one I choose doesn't move on. They are all pretty good. There are only 2 or 3 songs left that I would rather not see move on.

mae
12-20-2016, 02:29 PM
And so the last of the Finals polls have been posted. Our tremendously long event is coming to a swift close. Up to now we've had 988 polls in this tournament overall. With the thirteen Tournament Finals polls that will close this out in January, we will go through exactly 1,001 polls. Pretty cool. The ultimate winner of this event will be decided by that 1,001st poll.

I cannot thank everyone enough, all who participated throughout the nominating, the seconding, and voting processes, and everyone else that put up with us crazies. A special thanks to RF for allowing this insanity in the first place and setting up this sandbox here so we may play in it.

With the first half of the time period finals closing, the winners are currently ranked thus, going into the Tournament Finals:


Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence (1964) 75.82%
Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire (1957) 75.60%
Eagles - Hotel California (1976) 74.54%
Vaughn Monroe - Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend) (1949) 71.21%
The Mamas and the Papas - California Dreamin' (1966) 66.28%
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (1971) 65.45%
Nat King Cole - Unforgettable (1952) 64.29%


The percentages are average vote percentages received throughout the tournament. Once tomorrow's second half closes, the winners will be seeded according to this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:14TeamBracket-BigTenBasketball) bracket system and the ultimate showdown will begin.

mae
01-01-2017, 02:26 PM
And just like that our 14 time period winners have all been determined. Our first polls opened on March 14, 2016 and closed today, on January 1, 2017. That's a span of 294 days or 9 months and 19 days. Here are the winners, ranked from 1 to 14 according to their average vote percentages acquired through the tournament:


Simon and Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence (1964) 75.82%
Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire (1957) 75.60%
Eagles - Hotel California (1976) 74.54%
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge (1991) 71.84%
Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight (1981) 71.66%
Vaughn Monroe - Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend) (1949) 71.21%
Tom Petty - Free Fallin' (1989) 69.53%
The Mamas and the Papas - California Dreamin' (1966) 66.28%
Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven (1971) 65.45%
Nat King Cole - Unforgettable (1952) 64.29%
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California (2006) 63.84%
Johnny Cash - Hurt (2002) 62.81%
Adele - Set Fire to the Rain (2011) 61.81%
Seal - Kiss From a Rose (1995) 61.56%


As discussed earlier, tomorrow we begin the ultimate showdown, the Tournament Finals. The bracket system being used was linked in my previous post. There will be 13 match-ups in all, one and done, within 5 rounds (Round 1, Round 2, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, Finals).

The tracks are seeded as follows: the top four tracks are promoted to the Quarterfinals. The next six tracks are promoted to Round 2. The bottom four will go through a Round 1 for the remaining two spots of Round 2. Polls will go up each Monday of January and run for seven days, as usual.

mae
01-02-2017, 02:08 PM
The first two matchups of the Tournament Finals are now up here in the main sub-forum (these are no longer tied to a specific era). Interestingly, and perhaps somewhat understandably, the four lowest ranked winners are from the last four time periods (1995-1999, 2000-2004, 2005-2009, and 2010-2014). And as the most recent tracks need this first Round 1 to prove their worth, so to say.

Another note of trivia: the only two winners to go through all eight rounds (preliminary Rounds 1-3, Playoffs Rounds 1-2, Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Finals) are "Seal - Kiss From a Rose" and "Adele - Set Fire to the Rain" (#13 and #14). But because the 1940s and the early 1950s did not have a preliminary Round 3, "Vaughn Monroe - Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend)" also went through all seven possible rounds.

mae
