View Full Version : Great Music - Round 1: 1965-1969 (Group 12 of 16)

03-23-2016, 05:25 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):

That's cos I'm like Charley the fire starter... One of a kind!
But to listen to the lyrics... It really speaks to those who have had a misspent ( or just missed) youth.

I hope more folks will give some love to "Stalactite" but it may be too late.

Snoopy vs The Red Baron?

I'm just not a fan off novelty songs.

Yeah I'm not sure why it's garnered a pretty good number of votes. Meanwhile "Mrs. Robinson" is looking to become the tournament's first 100% track.
