OLD TIME ROCK 'N ROLL TOURNAMENT

Tools    





I do have a question. :
HHHEEEEEELLLLLPPPP !!!!!!!!!!

😳I may wander over to the Star Trek TOS thread, get in the transformer, and see if there's a way I can get Mr. Spock to assist me in this.
If Mr Spock can't help maybe Mr. @mojofilter can help out with the links?

Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
I use hyperlinks, but didnít realize we have a hyperlink button. Which one is it? I canít find it.
And for @lenslady

it shows up when you hit "Advanced" for extra options. The link button as a sphere and a chain. When you click it, a box opens up to supply the "link" or web page address. It'll pop up in your reply.

Part of that will be highlighted, in that highlighted section you type in the band and the song title.

At the beginning of that web address, it will start with "www." That is where you replace it with "m". That replacement makes it appear as writing instead of the video itself.


hope that helps.

I forgot to say thanks to you @edarsenal for your input, which unfortunately glided like A High Flying Bird that was Eight Miles High over me. But perhaps Stirchley will be able to use this knowledge Today or in Days of Future Passed , or even next week on Monday Monday ( I can stop any time. Really. )

Fortunately @mojofilter gave a big Help to me so I can join right in and get some Satisfaction out of this terrific thread.

Also I Thank You and send a hug to @Citizen Rules who never fails to Stand By Me with his enthusiasm and tireless support.

With mofos like you all around , who are Here,There and Everywhere - how can I help but be Happy?

( Okay I' m done now. Whew glad to get that out of my system )



Sniff Ďn the Tears Driverís Seat

Okay, I got the hang of it now. (Several hours later & Iím not even in the tournament.)

Will not hi-jack the thread any longer.

ROUND 1 DAY 1

Randy Meisner - Hearts On Fire VS. Sniff "N" the Tears-Driver's Seat
Not crazy about either of these.

The Beatles - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds VS. Ritchie Valens - Sleepwalk
Love Sleepwalk and I'm not a big Beatles fan

Cream - White Room VS. April Wine - Roller
No contest.

All Through the Night - Cyndi Lauper VS. Tommy Tutone - 867-5309/Jenny
Not crazy about either.

Joe Walsh - Life's Been Good VS. Ambrosia - How much I feel

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Saturday Night Special VS. Johnny Rivers - Rockin' Pneumonia and Boogie Woogie Flu
That Johnny Rivers song is great but I'm gonna give it to my own nom. Wish these two were up against some of the lesser songs in this round.

Mr. Soul - Buffalo Springfield VS.The Kinks-Celluloid Heroes

The Traveling Wilburys - End of the Line VS. The Doobie Brothers - What a Fool Believes
I like the Doobies but they're no match for Petty, Orbison, Dylan, Harrison, and Lynne.

Randy Meisner - Hearts On Fire VS. Sniff "N" the Tears-Driver's Seat

I don't recall hearing the first before. It was corny but I enjoyed the vibe of the song and the video. I've loved Driver's Seat since first seeing one of my favorite movies-



The Beatles - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds VS. Ritchie Valens - Sleepwalk

The second was nice but an average Beatles song is a great song.

Cream - White Room VS. April Wine - Roller

Not my favorite from Cream even if it's still awesome. For this one match, I enjoyed the other a little more this time.

All Through the Night - Cyndi Lauper VS.Tommy Tutone - 867-5309/Jenny

I rarely vote for Lauper, but that's not a song I've heard much and I liked it. I like Jenny but more as sort of a joke than as a good song.

Joe Walsh - Life's Been Good VS. Ambrosia - How much I feel

Nothing bad here but it was a mismatch.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Saturday Night Special VS. Johnny Rivers - Rockin' Pneumonia and Boogie Woogie Flu

Brutal match between 2 favorites that I've nominated myself in the past.

Mr. Soul - Buffalo Springfield VS. Celluloid Heroes

Mr Soul is another that I love and have nominated before.

The Traveling Wilburys - End of the Line VS. The Doobie Brothers - What a Fool Believes

I didn't like either of these when they first came out but they've both grown on me over the years. One of them much more so though.




Getting SC's votes-




Great songs to pick from and I' m really enjoying listening to them. Okay I' m just getting the hang of this and I still don't know how to bold the letters for my choices on this thing. So I am just going to list the winner first, the song of my choice will be ALL IN CAPS and the ' loser ' second, in parenthesis, in no caps. I hope that's ok.


1- Sniif N the Tears. DRIVER'S SEAT
(Randy meisner - hearts on fire)

2- Ritchie Valens SLEEPWALK omg never thought I'd find a song to beat out the Beatles but Good Lawd - soooooo sexy,
Jest hold me close and let's dance real slow
(the Beatles - l.s.d.)

3-Cream -WHITE ROOM - iconic
(april wine- roller)

4- Cyndi Lauper - ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
(tommy tutone - jenny)

5- Ambrosia HOW MUCH I FEEL
(joe Walsh - life 's been good)


6- Johnny Rivers - ROCKING PNEUMONIA AND THE BOOGIE WOOGIE FLU
( lynnard skynard - Saturday night special)


7- Buffalo Springfield - MR. SOUL
(kinks - celluloid heroes)

8 - The Traveling Wilburys - END OF THE LINE - I like the other song too - but this is how it's done, boys. What a driving rocking beat, what a happy circle of song.
(doobie brothers - what a fool believes )



ROUND 1 DAY 1

Randy Meisner - Hearts On Fire VS. Sniff "N" the Tears-Driver's Seat
I just recently discovered the first song after I dove deep into the Eagles and their solo work, and I instantly loved this tune. Don Felder has his own version of the song which is equally as great

The Beatles - Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds VS. Ritchie Valens - Sleepwalk
Beatlemaniac here, so this is a natural choice

Cream - White Room VS. April Wine - Roller
Two kickass tunes. This was not an easy choice

All Through the Night - Cyndi Lauper VS. Tommy Tutone - 867-5309/Jenny
I've grown tired of Jenny and her damn phone number. Lauper ain't rock 'n roll but she'll do for now

Joe Walsh - Life's Been Good VS. Ambrosia - How much I feel
Joe Walsh is a cool mother f**ker, and that tune of his is pure rock 'n roll. Ambrosia is kickass too. Tough choice.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Saturday Night Special VS. Johnny Rivers - Rockin' Pneumonia and Boogie Woogie Flu
Another tough match. This tourney obviously will
not be an easy one overall. The second got me moving the minute I played it

Mr. Soul - Buffalo Springfield VS.The Kinks-Celluloid Heroes
Both are great. I like Celluloid heroes more, that's all

The Traveling Wilburys - End of the Line VS. The Doobie Brothers - What a Fool Believes
I've always loved that Wilburys' tune, but it's going up against a song I've loved more as I've grown older. Something about Michael McDonald's voice that does it for me



I will not post a winners list for each round/day just to save time. Losers will be deleted from the ELIMINATION LIST I've created on the first page. If your song has disappeared from the list, it means the other song in the match won
