On to Round 2 to determine the GREATEST song on the album 'Sports' by Huey Lewis and the News
Eliminated Round 1 -  Honky Tonk Blues, Finally Found A Home, and You Crack Me Up

For anyone new to the game:
You are going to pick the song that you think is the "Weakest Link" after 3 days I remove the two (2) songs with the most votes.
We will then move on to Round 3  - Remember you are voting to eliminate songs from contention.

Lets have fun with this. Remember debating and discussing why your right and others are wrong is always fun.

    Hahaha.  E still wants drugs to get through this voting process.
    (I want a new drug is one of the better songs on this album, IMO, and the Ghostbusters connection makes me like it even more)

    I Want A New Drug
    Now that the field is narrowed, I'm listening to what's left so I join the fun.  "I want a New Drug" is an easy pick for for for a couple of reasons- 1) It's way to disco for my tastes, 2) The whole concept of the song is dumb and 3) It's probably the worst drug song (metaphor or not) I've ever heard.  Compare it to songs like Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze", Country Joe and the Fish's "Bass Strings", the Stones "Sister Morphine", Lou Reeds "Heroin", Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit", The Beatles "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds",  Neil Young's "The Needle and the Damage Done", or J. J. Cale's (no E.C. did not write  it) "Cocaine".  Listen to any or all of those songs and "I Want a New Drug" will sound like warm flat beer.
    "Love and only love will break it down"
    -Neil Young

    Indeed. Voted for Bad is Bad as it’s a bit of a slow burn compared to the others. Still a fine tune!

    I find it tedious, not fun.

    Are you going to be taking 3 each round or is that just how the votes have been adding up for the last couple of rounds?

    I mean, Power of Love is the best song this group ever released, so I'm just picking off whatever I feel like! Hahaha!!

    I thought I want A New Drug would be the easy winner on this one... So far so good.
