    Not sure it matters but I voted for Riders in the Sky. Hopefully someone else will get their vote in and break the tie before it closes later today.

    It's at 20 votes, and we've had 21+ in other threads (up to 25 or so). Someone should be able to break the tie for sure

    The poll has closed in a tie, but stated votes favored "Kiss From a Rose". It will face Eagles - Hotel California (1976) in the Quarterfinals.

    ooohhhhh grrrrr... Stockerlone, where have you been?

    anyway, KfaR is getting pulverized in the next thread; the same would probably be happening with Riders
