Personally, I wouldn't have chosen any of these but of the ones listed I would say - John Lennon - Imagine.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

Well, at least one Beatles tune and 1 John Lennon tune, but still an extremly incomplete list.

Well, if the list is crap, blame yourselves. You had 2 days to vote for other songs, or give write in votes. Only 4 write in songs were nominated, so I had to leave 2 of the 6 spots I had reserved empty. If "Who Let The Dogs Out" had gotten 1 write in vote, it would have made it to the Semifinals, thanks to the poor participation.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I don't blame myself for the bad music taste of others I didn't see the previous threads you're speaking of so pardon moi.

"Who let the dogs out"
Thats what I'm talking about. Much better than these soppy ones. And don't nobody give me any lecture about bad music taste. Pretty much like a$$holes. We all have a couple.

Guess I'd have to go for Abba or Eagles on this list.

PS. Tori WHO?????

What a bunch of crap. Did you listen to the top classic rock station in you hometown to come up with this?

"Livin' on a Prayer". Just ahead of "Imagine" and "American Pie"
