    Default Great Music - Tournament Finals: Round 1 (Matchup 2 of 13)

    For this finals poll, please choose one track to move on to the next round.

    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):

    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California (2006)


    Seal - Kiss From a Rose (1995)

    Kiss From A Rose

    Nor did I. Honestly I'm not a fan of either song. There's so many better ones from this era.

    Rose is pretty much a perfect song.
