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

03-23-2016, 05:28 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 was one I was not familiar with, but I listened to it and voted for it!

I'm feeling bad about Nina Simone :cry: Especially since we already have the original version of "Folsom Prison Blues" in the second round.
