View Full Version : Great Music - Round 1: 1960-1964 (Group 10 of 16)

03-21-2016, 05:52 AM
During the first round of The Great Music Tournament, please vote for up to five tracks you would like to move onto the next round. The top five tracks will be moving on. Keep in mind that the percentage of the vote a given track receives will determine its standing going forward.

IMPORTANT! Please do not simply vote on name recognition (or lack thereof) alone. Please do listen to each nomination and then make your choice. Even if you think you know a track well, it's still worth giving it a listen for a refresher.

The poll will run for seven days. Discussion is greatly encouraged!

The nominees are (please let me know if any video doesn't play for you):

Pretty Little Angel Eyes is my all-time favorite doo-wop song. Regardless of how you end up voting, please make sure to give it a listen.
