    About a year ago someone at this board held an elimination tournament to pick a single "best" song. Since things look like we won't be hearing anything new from the band for a long time, if you're game, I say we do another one. Of course this will be a bit more standardized [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    The basic note is if no one is game, Glenn or paradiddle should close this thing.

    So, week one is nominations for the tourney. Here's the process. Everyone should pick FIVE songs they feel should be involved in the tourney. These don't have to be your favorites, just songs you think are deserving. Number them 1 to 5, obviously with 1 being what you feel is most deserving on down to 5 being least of your choices.

    Based on your rankings, the song will earn between 1 to 5 points (5 for rank 1, 4 for rank 2, and so on). The sixteen songs with the most points will advance to the tournament and be bracketed randomly.

    Every song on every album is fair game with one exception. Since instrumentals are usually just lead-ins to the next song, they will all be considered part of that following song (i.e. 1984/Jump, Primary/Ballot or the Bullet) except for Baluchitherium (or however it's spelled).

    So, for the next week, if you're game, pick five songs. Try to mix things up a bit so we have 16 when we're finished (remember, not necessarily your favorites, just songs you think are deserving). If anyone actually cares, I'll keep you updated.

    First, my nominations:

    1. Dreams
    2. Aftershock
    3. Little Guitars
    4. Why Can't This Be Love
    5. In a Simple Rhyme
    "Just once I'd like to do the right thing and not get punished for it."

    I think you are referring to the tourney I did last year in which "Unchained" won to take the title of best VH song. I'm predicting that "Unchained" will repeat as champion, but you never know. Let's get started!

    1.Unchained
    2.Feel Your Love Tonight
    3.In a Simple Rhyme
    4.Poundcake
    5.Eruption/You Really Got Me

    I've updated the list up above. It still could be pretty much anybody's game as far as which 16 songs carry over - if you're interested and haven't nominated anyone yet, don't hesitate.
