I would ask that you listen to "The World's on Fire" if you haven't already done so. It's way cool. And if you want to hire the highest note ever sung by a male, you can go to the 2:00 minute mark, and you will be in awe.

This is another of my favorite running songs. If you can keep moving to this beat, it bodes well for your performance.

Honestly, there were only three songs on this list that weren't horrible: More than a Feeling, Like A Rolling Stone, and The World's On Fire. I was dangerously close to the Muy Sucko button.

Geez.. this group is a lot tougher than the others. There are four songs here that I would have voted for if they were in the other brackets.

It appears he pretty much has based on his "performance" at the Grammys

The first two should easily advance. I'm the one person who voted for Chicago, although conveniently enough, I didn't nominate that sound in the first place. My only Chicago nom would have been 25 or 6 to 4

It's been ages since I've heard a Squeeze song, but I vaguely recall them and there might be some similarity. The Housemartins are a big win for me because I like their bouncy beat and quick-paced songs.

Smashing Pumpkins, Boston, and...

I probably would have voted for Red Barchetta, but I didn't feel strongly about it and I kind of liked the upbeat, bouncy Housemartins song so they got my 3rd vote. I only know 4 other Housemartins songs and I don't like 3 of them because they are boringly mellow so it was nice to find a second Housemartins song that I enjoy. The other one I like is called Happy Hour, btw.

P.S. Bob Dylan's raspy-assed voice won't be getting any of my votes.

Good man. Try listening to Doubtful (maybe it's You Better Be Doubtful), Get Up Off Your Knees, Me and the Farmer, and The People Who Grinned Themselves to Death if you want to hear other fast Housemartins songs. Like you, I'm not a fan of their mellow stuff, but they have lots of good upbeat songs.

We have 7 Zeppelin songs, 4 Floyd songs, and 4 U2 songs in the mix, as well as 7 Queen songs. Ted Nugent didn't get nominated, and I'm sure he'll send me a cleverly written rant about that when he finds out.

And I can't stop being a nerd. It's not my fault. I was born that way.

Can I nominate a write-in candidate?

I listened to "Run to the Hills" this morning by Iron Maiden and realized what a glaring oversight we had committed. It should be in the poll over at least half of these options.

Hoo boy, that's a tough one. I think we all recognize that there are some great songs that weren't nominated, but if I let you add one in then I'd get a bunch of other requests, too. I think we have to close the nominations with BRC's thread. But we appreciate your continued interest and support in the Rock N Poll tournament.

The nomination thread was open to all. And two of the three songs that Rain Man has pimped were an old time rockabilly tune and an early Springsteen song, neither of which were Brit or pop.

I didn't realize that Boston had such a following among people who like football. I thought it was fodder for girls and only to be played in HS when trying to get a girl to make out with you in the back seat.

Is REO speedwagon next on the list?

Jesus, they are fucking horrible.

I mean, I appreciate their affinity for literary classics such as those penned by Coleridge and Herbert, but they define the term "schlock rock."

Run to the Hills could have been the theme song for the Benny Hill show if it wasn't for those god-awful lyrics.

I hate you. They don't define the term "schlock rock" because 1.) they don't play rock, and 2.) they are certainly less cheesy than some of their peers.

I'm not being pedantic in this instance. There is a world of difference between rock and metal. They share instrumentation, but they sound entirely different.
