    Alright, I am new to this forum but already addicted. I am going to do a bracket type tournament that pits songs against eachother. I'm not sure if this has been done before. If it has then I guess this is my attempt. This bracket has 32 songs. The first side is earlier (1967 to 1974). The second side is later (1975 to 1982).

    Each year has two songs. The winner of that year goes to the second round. Example: 1969 winner would go up against 1970. 1971 winner would go up against 1972 winner in the second round. Think of like a March Madness bracket if you are into sports. Only one entry per band so you won't see any one band such as Led Zeppelin dominate.

    PLEASE ONLY VOTE ON ONE SONG PER YEAR

    That just means you can't vote for both 1967 songs when they are up against eachother. Vote for the song you like the best that year out of the two. Thanks!

    This is part one (earlier years)

    THE FIRST ROUND WILL LAST 5 DAYS
