    Default Great Music - Round 1: 1985-1989 (Group 3 of 16)

    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):

    Pink Floyd - Learning to Fly (1987)


    Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al (1986)


    INXS - Never Tear Us Apart (1987)


    Pet Shop Boys - Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money) (1986)


    Chris Rea - Road to Hell (1989)


    David Bowie - Underground (1986)


    Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Mbube Wimoweh (1988)

    Kind of a crappy grouping. LOL

    With about 24 hours to go "Never Tear Us Apart", "Opportunities", and "Road to Hell" are tied for the last two spots.
