    Mine All Mine vs. Pleasure Dome
    Poundcake vs. "5150"

    Mine All Mine is one of my favorite Hagar era solos. Iíve been hoping it makes it to the top, so Iím glad to see it at this point. Pleasure Dome is no slouch, but MaM is a better representation of Ed.

    Iíve said in earlier threads that the 5150 solo doesnít do much for me. I actually re-listen to these when voting because I donít want to go with a knee jerk reaction based on my preference for the overall song. Iím beginning to appreciate that solo more. But Poundcakeís mid gear vibe, more melodic approach, and the drill gags are too fun for me, so Poundcake takes it.

    Mine All Mine - wow, when I voted last round I didn't think MAM had a chance to advance. Glad to see it did.
    5150 - no surprise.

    Yeah, I was surprised to see it still alive. I'm not going to look back, but maybe it had some easy early rounds?
