View Full Version : Great Music - Round 1: 1965-1969 (Group 9 of 16)

03-23-2016, 05:23 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):

Turn, turn, turn" are verses from the Bible... So is that copywriter?

This is pretty tight, I hope "Love Is Blue" can manage to at least tie for fifth? Would love to see it move on!

I agree, Love Is Blue is a great tune. If it doesn't make it, I hope at least Red Rubber Ball does. That song speaks volumes to anyone who has been on the wrong end of a bad breakup. Plus the tune is so catchy.

With about 24 hours to go "Red Rubber Ball" and "San Francisco" are tied for fifth, with "Love is Blue" not far behind.
