Oh dear. It appears a relatively ordinary Madonna song is about to become the greatest song of the past 50 years.

Ok, I missed the pole obviously, but what the hell is going on?!? Madonna's Like a Prayer the best song of the last 50 years? LMAO! *insert hysterical laughter* This isn't even one her good songs.

Where is Layla by the way? ;)

Well, Layla, a board full of people who are primarily gay and primarily in their early 20's may not be a demographic relective of society as a whole. These are the songs which survived 2 rounds of elimination.

Also, there is at least one person whom I suspect of voting in this contest under at least 2 usernames, and they did vote for "Like A Prayer".

In my opinion, the problem was that Madonna's best song faced off against some more respectable bands' weaker tracks. "Losing My Religion" was the only one I thought was at the cream of the artists' crop...the rest were probably their most popular but not their best. I would have voted for "Breed" or "Lithium" by Nirvana, but not SLTS. I would have voted for "Chain of Fools," but not "Respect."

Anyway, I did vote for the Madonna. That single is beautifully done.

Ok, I'm obviously late but I would have voted for Under the Bridge since its my favorite song.

And what the hell is Oasis doing on here?

Aretha Franklin- "Respect" :D

Oasis is on there because they gained more votes in previous rounds than most of their competition.
