View Full Version : Great Music - Round 1: 1985-1989 (Group 7 of 16)

04-01-2016, 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):

Just Like Heaven is only one of the best songs ever. :wub:

Soft and only
Lost and lonely
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Collins is great! Has he ever done a bad song?

04-01-2016, 11:13 AM
Yes. All of them. :lol: :P

I kid. I've just never been a fan of his voice at all.

Very surprising to see John Fogerty leading this group.

With about 24 hours to go, this one's pretty tight all around. We have "Papa Don't Preach", "Kiss", and "Touch of Gray" tied for the last two spots with "Just Like Heaven" just a vote away.

Thank you sir! [high fives]

As long as you don't dangle the life preserver in my face the next time I'm drowning. :unsure:

Madonna in danger of being eliminated? What?!

Yeah. I'd much rather Phil Collins get eliminated. <_<
