    Hotel California.

    I actually enjoy KFAR more, but HC is a true epic - the lyrics tell a story, the music feels like it tells a story, it takes its time getting where it's going, and it made a huge dent in the world of music - so it gets my vote (of course, if I hated it, no go).
    Kindly refrain from molesting the English language, whether or not you are the harlequin in the third row.

    A clean sweep so far at 13-0. But normally I don't like songs that tell a story.

    Well, we have had a few 100% winners. "Hotel California" did it in Round 2, too.

    I nominated both songs, but my vote goes to the more iconic of the two which is: Hotel California.

    The poll has closed. "Hotel California" will face Jerry Lee Lewis - Great Balls of Fire (1957) in the Semifinals.
