  • What's the Best Song-The 2nd Chance Poll

       December 22, 2005

    We're getting close to the end of our quest to determine the greatest song of all time. You can still vote in the 2000s pool, but with the holidays coming up I thought I'd also post the "overlooked" list and let you vote on it too. Both pools will end on Christmas Day and then it's time for the finals.

    I'll be the first to admit it. I've left some great songs off the various decade lists throughout this greatest song competition. Some were due to personal preferences others to forgetfulness. It's only fair to give these songs a second chance to make the finals.

    Click on any of the songs to vote (you'll open the poll in a new window):

    1. "Cross Road Blues", by Robert Johnson
    2. "Rock Around The Clock", by Bill Haley & His Comets
    3. "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight", by Hank Williams, Jr.
    4. "I Want You Back", by the Jackson 5
    5. "Bohemian Rhapsody", by Queen
    6. "On The Road Again", by Willie Nelson
    7. "Creeque Alley", by The Mamas & the Papas
    8. "Tear The Roof Off The Sucka", by Parliament
    9. "Bridge Over Troubled Water", by Simon & Garfunkel
    10. "Let's Stay Together", by Al Green

    Update: The polls are closed. Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is the winner. Stay tuned for the final poll, coming soon.

    Thanks for "I Want You Back," the song that changed my musical life.

    The best overlooked songs are by Collective Soul.

    Even in a category of overlooked songs, they get overlooked.

    I'll vote for "Shine", "December", "Listen", and "Run". I don't care if they're not listen. I'm gonna sit here like a moonbat in front of the White House and pout.

    Good Lord people, how could you not vote for Robert Johnson. He sold his soul to the devil in order to play the greatest blues guitar ever for pete's sake.

    Collective Soul. PHBBTTTTTT!!!! I did notice the absense of Iggy Pop or any other early punk phenomenon. Sex Pistols, Violent Femmes, Go-Go's, Ramones. You know each and everyone of you danced to 'Bitchin Camero'.

    Iggy and the Stooges. "1969" is a killer song, man.

    Just showed my age by both my musical tastes and the use of "man".
