POLL - The WEAKEST LINK: Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 10 Songs- FINALS

MedozKMedozK TennesseePosts: 8,147
Since we definitely didn't agree with Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 10 albums of all time, I figured for fun we could move to another questionable Rolling Stone List. This time we will look at their list of the GREATEST SONGS OF ALL-TIME.

Alright, so we are now moving on to THE FINAL FOUR to determine the BEST song in the Rolling Stone Top 10.

You are going to pick the song that you think is the "Weakest Link" after 2 days I remove the song with the most votes. We will then have a CHAMPION.
 
Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 10 Songs of ALL-TIME
1) Bob Dylan, 'Like a Rolling Stone' - Eliminated Round 4
2) The Rolling Stones, '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' - Eliminated Round 3
3) John Lennon, 'Imagine' - Eliminated Round 3
4) Marvin Gaye, 'What's Going On' - Eliminated Round 4
5) Aretha Franklin, 'Respect'
6) The Beach Boys, 'Good Vibrations' - Eliminated Round 2
7) Chuck Berry, 'Johnny B. Goode'
8) The Beatles, 'Hey Jude' - Eliminated Round 2
9) Nirvana, 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' - Eliminated Round 1
10) Ray Charles, 'What'd I Say' - Eliminated Round 1

    The final two is right, out of these 10, for my votes.  A toss up but am going with what I think will get drummed out, w/some Chuck.

    Haven't voted yet. I love both these songs. But what does it say about the state of modern music when the top two contenders for greatest song are over 50 years old.

    I have to go with the Queen of Soul.  
    I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on.

    Well, OK, I had to vote out Aretha but I would never have thought either song would be considered "the best" (whatever that is, haha!)

    Fun doing it anyway.  :smile:

    No! This is a two party...er, two song system. Must be a lot of Georgians on here. I don't know why Medozk is requiring a copy of my ID to vote and that I needed to cast my vote 4 days ago if I wasn't voting in person at his house.

    R-E-S-P-E-C-T indeed.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    It shows that the makers of the list are old and out of touch to begin with.  It only recently changed so they didn't look like old stuffy white music critics, which they are...
