    Default VH March Madness - Consolidated Thread

    OK, I have consolidated this into one thread, especially as the GC one went off the rails. Listed here are the next round of votes in each division.

    The winners so far, unsurprisingly, were RWTD, YRGM, ATBL, Jamie's Cryin', DTNA, Unchained, Jump, and Panama.

    EVH Division: Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now) vs Humans Being. My vote: HB
    DLR Division: Best of Both Worlds vs She's the Woman. My vote: STW, by a hair
    AVH Division: Eruption vs Push Comes to Shove. My vote: Eruption
    MA Division: Summer Nights vs The Trouble With Never. My vote: SN
    SH Division: An all-OU812 affair... Cabo Wabo vs Black and Blue. My vote: CW
    GC Division: Ballot or the Bullet vs In a Simple Rhyme. My vote: IASR
    WVH Division: One Foot Out the Door vs Hang 'Em High. My vote: HEH
    TT Division: Runaround vs Romeo Delight. My vote: RD.

    Some tough choices here... have at it!

    Will leave this up for 48 hours.

    Sad to see so little love for PCTS and CW, two all time greats.

    It was literally a toss up for me on both of those matchups. Give me 10 different chances to answer at 10 different times, and I wouldn't be surprised if I picked both of those tunes 5 times. The solo and Ed's use of the flanger in PCTS is some of his tastiest work, and I love Al's funk playing on that tune along with his tuned down snare. Fits the song perfectly.

    Ed's tone on CW is quite unique and again, love his solo on that tune.

    I like these matchups because they make me consider the merits of a lot of these individual songs. For instance, even Ballet or the Bullet has something to offer. It stood no chance against IASR, but I still had to consider it for about 1/64th of a second.

    PCTS has been my 3rd favorite VH track since I picked up the record after the show in 81. Id pay gold to see it live.

    CWs wet 12 string tone is such perfection to me...and the chorales are perfect harmonies, whether Luke helped em or not.

    How you faring up there, man?
