View Full Version : Great Music - Round 1: 1995-1999 (Group 11 of 16)

04-08-2016, 05:18 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 can't believe Fatboy Slim's best wasn't even nominated ("Praise You"). Unless I missed it.

Also, in addition to "Stupid Girl" I really hoped "Only Happy When It Rains" and "Queer" also made it. Shirley Manson is a goddess.

I think all 3 (?) 4 (?) Fatboy Slim nominations were mine. I had to cut the line somewhere. But I agree--that is a great video ("Praise You"), with the flash mob recording.

Don't remember the video but that song was everywhere at the dawn of the millennium.
