View Full Version : Great Music - Round 1: 1980-1984 (Group 9 of 16)

03-31-2016, 06:00 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):

"I'm Still Standing" is in sixth? Wow, it's one of my favorites from Elton John...

I thought I had voted for Careless Whisper, but it didn't go through. Or I just forgot to check the box...

I'll count an extra vote for it when the poll closes.

Man, can't believe "I'm Still Standing" is in danger of falling off right away. That's a great song. It's only a vote away from tying for fifth.

Why is Elton John going out??? Is the score board working properly?

If it gets another vote it'll tie for fifth place. Given "Twilight Zone" stays put.
