View Full Version : Great Music - Round 1: 1965-1969 (Group 3 of 16)

03-22-2016, 04:24 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):

Wow, nice and tight here, even the seventh place still not out of it.

Crap, I just realized how close it is for The Animals. I really hope they pull through this round.

What I meant was that this is one of the closest groups thus far in this tournament. While #1-3 are pretty firmly established, though not by much, we have a three-way tie for #4-5 and the song the the last place is only one vote away from making it a four-way tie for the last two spots. Amazing!

Now he's talking about three-ways and four-ways!

No no no no no. I refuse to believe it. The Animals and The Beatles didn't make it. :cry:

I would swap the doors for the animals!

Edit: Actually, I'd swap just about anything else I voted for.
