I know there's more songs, but I can't name them off the top of my head. These are all great songs though, and they made it to the top on the charts too.

"21 Guns"
"Know Your Enemy"

Yeah, I forgot the latest ones.

Just to remind everyone that this bit hasn't started yet, so no point in posting here yet. Come back next Wednesday.

Not to mention that when we do start, Green Day songs won't be eligible for a looooong time.

Posted by DarinRG on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 13:45pm


Also I don't care who you are, no one act needs that many songs in.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 15:11pm


The Beatles could easily get that many songs in, GFW.

Posted by Casper on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 15:52pm


We're voting for 25 songs a year, so The Beatles could easily double the amount of Green Day ones posted, heh.

I'm not that comfortable with the Influences voting going on for too long. I mean, if we induct 10 per year, we could end up with over 500 tracks that most of us never even really listen to...since this is clearly about the rock era, we should have just ten election for Early Influences tracks. It would give us a "Top 100 Songs That Shaped Rock 'n Roll" so to speak.

Well originally, Gassman wanted to have 3 "Early Influences" songs per election, and I commented/argued that 3 was too few. So we had settled on having 5 per election, for a total of 200 by the end of it. I think he forgot that and it looks now that we'll be having 10 per class.

I'm going to try my best to have as big a list of "Early Influences" songs as possible so people will have plenty to choose from.

I also plan on providing links to videos for the songs that I vote for each election, so that the people hear can listen to the songs, and then maybe explore further.

We may not know much pre-rock and roll music now, but hopefully by the end of it, this project will have helped expose many of us to pre-rock and roll music, through us researching and looking up old music and checking it out. If this project causes us to do that, I think it'll be a success.

I have a bunch of post-1950's ideas, but those won't come around for a while. Since I'm more of a song guy than an album guy, I'd probably participate in this project more actively. I can't wait till Wednesday.

It should be interesting to see how the bar will be set (especially for blues acts) dividing "early-Influence" songs from none early influence songs. Take Elmore James' "Dust My Broom" for example, the initial recording was done in 1951. However, he recorded it later in his career as well. Is it an "Early Influence" song or not? Or Smiley Lewis for example, under which category would "I Hear You Knocking" fall under?

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 16:15pm


I'm looking forward to this. I'm not sure if I could come up with any early influence songs on my own. I'll need help on that.

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 21:21pm


This website is really interesting and could be of some use in summing up the best songs of one year.

http://acclaimedmusic.net/

Posted by Greg on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 23:34pm


Yeah, acclaimedmusic.net is a great website for research and info.

In addition to it, DigitalDreamDoor also now has 100 Best Songs lists for every year from 1947-1987. I am actually planning on using those lists here shortly to top off my list of eligile "Early Influences" songs for the jump-blues/R&B artists from 1946-1953 (the precursors of rock and roll).

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 00:31am


DarinRG- "Not to mention that when we do start, Green Day songs won't be eligible for a looooong time."

Why? I didn't mean to put in all of those songs, I just thought that if I was the first one to post here, I'd name my favorite Green Day songs and see if people would respond to it. (By the way, I did that on purpose.)

Casper- "The Beatles could easily get that many songs in, GFW."

Okay, I'm going to be honest here but The Beatles aren't even that good. Mind you, they do have some memorable songs but just because they're The Beatles doesn't mean they're better than any of the other bands out there today, just saying.

I forgot to mention but any band could have a lot of songs, not just The Beatles. Just because they may have been voted #1 on "The Greatest Rock and Roll Bands of all time" on VH1 doesn't mean that everybody agreed with that, at least I didn't. Besides, who cares what VH1 thinks.

Posted by Brittany on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 17:51pm


Brittany,

Songs and albums are eligible 25 years after they were released. We are starting with 1986, meaning that Green Day songs will not be eligible for quite a while. You do not seem to understand what we are doing here, nor do you seem to care.

Regarding the Beatles, well, that's just like, your opinion man.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 16:15pm

----------------------------------------------

I'm planning on making this much easier to decide upon than what Gassman's rules stated.

Him and I agreed on having a cut-off point 1953-1954. Anything recorded in 1953 or prior will fall under the "Early Influences" category. Anything recorded 1954 or afterwards will be apart of our regular category.

There are a number of artists who are going to have songs eligible in both categories. Gassman stated in the rules that it's going to be based more on artists and that are artists who recorded before 1953 will be under the Early Influences category, but that's not exactly how I'm making up my eligible lists.

I think it will be much simpler and easier for everyone to simply vote for any song (no matter the artist) that was made before 1954 as an Early Influence, and anything after as a regular category song.

There are a number of artists from the first half of the century who recorded after 1954 and will have worthy songs, such as Elmore James who recorded a number of classics in the early '50s but was still putting out HOF songs by 1960.

Then there's someone like Louis Armstrong for example. The majority of his work will obviously be in the "Early Influences" category, but take a song like "What a Wonderful World" which came out in 1968. That's definitely not an "Early Influence" song. It's one of the classic pop songs of the 1960's, well within the rock and roll era. It just happened to be recorded by the biggest artist of the 1st half of the 20th century.

So that's an example where an artist should be able to get songs in both the Early Influences and Performers category. Something like "Heebie Jeebies" or "West End Blues" which he recorded in the late '20s should definitely be "Early Influences" songs, but something like "Hello Dolly!" or "What a Wonderful World," are definitely qualifying songs for the regular category.

I hope Gassman will agree with this, because I think the "using sound judgment" idea will make things much more complicated and difficult. If we're going to have a cut-off date, we might as well make it literal (it's much easier to find out when a song came out then try to decide which category an artist belongs in based off opinions and judgement).

Actually, I do understand what you're doing here, but I think I have a right to state the songs that I personally think should be credited. According to The Beatles, I do like their music, but I just don't consider them as being the best. Why do you have to make such a big deal over this?

Posted by Brittany on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 09:27am


To be honest, even i, for once, agree with Brittany.
The beatles couldn't get that many songs in my opinion.

Posted by GFW on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 09:48am


"People should think of this more in terms the type of music the act is performing. Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Louis Jordon, etc should be in the early influences" - top of the page.

Hmmm, I'm not sure who Louis Jordon is, Louis JORDAN on the other hand....

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 11:38am


GFW- "To be honest, even i, for once, agree with Brittany.
The beatles couldn't get that many songs in my opinion."

But really, The Beatles aren't that great of deal, c'mon, take a look at bands like Van Halen, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, The Sex Pistols( Hate to admit it), U2, Oasis, Muse and my personal favorite, Green Day, etc. They all hold the same potential as The Beatles.

Posted by Brittany on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 18:47pm


Would it be possible for us all to commence the song project of our Revisited Rock Hall? I state this considering thst the album project has already inducted its first class.

Brittany, we will certainly be getting into Green Day quite extensively in the weeks to come; in the album and song projects, and in the induction honors for their Revisited and Projected Rock Hall induction. I agree that Green Day have been one of the best American punk and alternative rock acts to come around in a long time. Green Day are not The Beatles: nor are they John lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, or George Harrison individually.

In any case, I am looking forward to the song project induction voting, and am anxiously awaiting the list of eligible recordings to choose from.

Not interested in pure novelty,

I'm not even a Beatles fan, but I think this statement is insane.

All of the bands that you listed do have songs and albums that should be inducted in these two projects, and all are HOF caliber bands, but none of them were as culturally significant or important as the Beatles or the music they left behind.

While I generally don't enjoy listening to the Beatles' music that much, my personal taste doesn't change the scope of their importance.

The Beatles changed the face of the music world. The Pistols were a major force in an important sea change, but nowhere near the massive level of impact that the Beatles had. The other bands mentioned fall miles short of that impact.



Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 20:31pm


Though, I suppose something should've be said for Nirvana being dramatically impactful, as well, but again, not Beatles level.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 20:48pm


Lax27 - We are waiting until Monday for Donnie to have the list done.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 21:54pm

With all due respect, that's incorrect. I'd say either Van Halen or U2 come closest out of that lot, and even they fall way short. It should be noted that if you held a gun to my head and forced me to do a list of Personal Favorites, there is a good chance The Beatles wouldn't top the list. Moreover, I agree that the VH1 list had some mistakes (though it was voted on by musicians and industry people including Ozzy, Mariah Carey, James Hetfield, Rob Halford and "over 200" others.) The Beatles at #1 wasn't one of them. There wasn't a single other band on that list that had the same kind of influence. The Beatles changed the way albums were produced, did alot to make people realize "making albums>making singles" and also raised the bar for everyone else; standards for what defined greatness were much higher post-Beatles. You'd be hard-pressed to find a musical movement that matched the British Invasion for impact. Anyway, to your points:

-Van Halen. Great band, and I prefer their best stuff to The Beatles' best stuff. However, their impact and influence is mostly limited to Hard Rock and Metal, so they didn't reach as many people as The Beatles.

-Guns 'n' Roses: Not a chance. Great band, and they did have huge potential, but some people seem to put this weird aura around them and act like they're above criticism. Not all that influential really.

-Nirvana's an interesting one. Nevermind and In Utero were absolutely brilliant albums, just terrific, and they should (and will) enter the Hall. It's important to keep in mind, however, that they owe a huge debt to The Beatles. A large part of that is because Kurt himself was influenced by them (two examples: Their music was the first he got into really, that's one. Secondly, he only agreed to do double-tracking vocals for Nevermind after Butch Vig pointed out that John Lennon used to do it.) One of the most influential bands of the last 20 years, certainly, but still not even in the ballpark. Also worth noting is that they had nowhere near the same universal appeal as The Beatles. It's a sad "what might've been?" tale for them, as the sky appeared to be the limit for them. Also worth noting that as great and impactful as Nirvana were, they have received a bit too much credit (coughcoughRollingStonecoughcough.) I'll elaborate on that idea if you like. I might touch on your other suggestions later.

Embarassed at the outrage over the X Factor controversy,

Sam

Oh and some people have the opinion that Nevermind was the missing link between The Beatles and The Stooges. Hope that helps.

I think you're right, but again, that was just my opinion being that I've grown up listening to a lot of music, and I do think some of the bands have a good potential at becoming as great as The Beatles, but it will take some time for that to happen though, but I do think it's possible.

Two things:

One, the standards you spoke of are being destroyed as we speak. As much as I am not a fan of the shift from albums to singles, the fact is, singles are taking over again. This would seem to indicate a turn away from the Beatles aesthetic, & therefore perhaps a lessening of their influence over time, especially in regards to this & future generations.

Two, you stated that "standards for what defined greatness were much higher post-Beatles". I am assuming this is a rock & roll music comment only. Am I right to assume this excludes Gershwin, Porter, Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller, Sinatra, etc.?

"I do think some of the bands have a good potential at becoming as great as The Beatles, but it will take some time for that to happen though, but I do think it's possible."

Well, U2 maybe but the consensus seems to be that they already hit their peak of greatness about 20-25 years ago, so I doubt we'll see them in the #1 spot if VH1 organizes another list in 2020. Van Halen? Not a chance. I'm just waiting on the reunion album to be finished since that started years ago. To be honest, I couldn't tell you who the musically greatest ever is, I can just say I still think that nobody's yet had the same impact that The Beatles had (in only 10 years of existence), and I don't know if anyone ever will.

"One, the standards you spoke of are being destroyed as we speak. As much as I am not a fan of the shift from albums to singles, the fact is, singles are taking over again. This would seem to indicate a turn away from the Beatles aesthetic, & therefore perhaps a lessening of their influence over time, especially in regards to this & future generations." - Cheesecrop

A very valid point, and I myself believe that The Beatles' influence isn't quite as much today as it was, though it is still very strong today (for example, large parts of the indie scene today are influenced by/owe a huge debt to Britpop, and in turn that movement may not have existed without The British Invasion, which The Beatles started.) Time will tell how much future music will owe to them.

"Two, you stated that 'standards for what defined greatness were much higher post-Beatles'. I am assuming this is a rock & roll music comment only. Am I right to assume this excludes Gershwin, Porter, Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller, Sinatra, etc.?"

My apologies for not elaborating. What I meant to say in that regard was the whole writing songs thing. Sinatra, Elvis and Chuck Berry and the like were quality artists, and could put on some dynamic performances (the VH1 Greatest Artists show, the new one, made me really go "wow!" as far as Elvis' performances are concerned) but they generally didn't write their own songs. After The Beatles you generally had to write your own songs and play your own music in order to be considered credible, which is still the norm today (Beyonce, Madonna, Michael Jackson to name a few were exceptions to the rule.) Hence why The Monkees were so scorned by critics back in the day, even though using session musicians was a common practice back then. They raised the standards for what an artist had to do in order to be legitimate, they raised the standards for production, and popularity-wise as well. That's what I was referring to.

"To be honest, I thought by now that every young person had been indoctrinated into thinking that the Beatles could never, ever be knocked out of the top spot..."

Michael Jackson fans seem to be trying to brainwash everyone into getting him into that spot, when Prince is far better. The point is well-taken though. It seems to be this idea among people that The Beatles are the greatest band of all time, and that there can be no discussion on the matter.

I'm not being sarcastic at all.

Some folks out there will freak out if you suggest that an act other than the Beatles can be considered #1. I think that the Beatles definitely were #1 for a period of time, but I don't think that their legacy, or anyone's for that matter, is set in stone.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Friday, 11.12.10 @ 05:12am


One of the members fro mKraftwerk, dont remember which one, said something which I believe is evry true.
Don't remember the actual quote but it goes like this.
The Follower becomes the followed. The Bands Kraftwerk influenced, such as New order and Depeche Mode, are becoming the ones followed.
The 80's indie acts and the britpop acts that the beatles influenced are now the ones being followed. Eventually the beatles might become as obscure as the bluesmen wh oinfluenced rock n roll, but i can't see that happening for a while.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 11.12.10 @ 09:27am


I believe the quote was that the students become the teachers, but the New Order/Depeche Mode example is an excellent one. The Britpop acts were the followers to the 80's indie acts like The Smiths, as was Radiohead, but now Radiohead and the Britpop acts (at least Oasis, Blur and to a lesser degree Suede and possibly Pulp) are really influencing new bands, though the older guard like The Smiths and The Stone Roses are still influential. I don't see The Beatles becoming obscure for a long time, if ever. Nirvana and co. took their queues from the first-wave of grunge (though Soundgarden were a part of that) and 80's alt. acts and now younger bands are looking up to them. It's just a cycle, that's all. That said, some of the old guard are still out there showing the young bands how it's done. Speaking of which, if any aspiring bands really want to know how a live show is done:

It could be in the further future, like say, 2030?

If the rumors are true, and Justin Bieber (shudder) considers himself a highly important artist with an ego oversized; let us all hope he publically makes little pretense of it.

Now, on to more pressing issues: just when can the voting for songs begin? It has been nearly two weeks since this page was formed. In addition, I truly do not beleive we are considering any and all recorded pieces of words and sounds for the past 110 years. To borrow a phrase from George Orwell, all songs are equal; but some songs are more equal than others.

For example, Doug Fieger (1952-2010) had a very important number one hit on the Hot 100 charts with "My Sharona". This was off of Fieger's 1979 debut album "Get the Knack", and was number one for six straight weeks. "My Sharona" was bumped off the top spot by "Sad Eyes", a number one hit for one week by Robert John. Everyone remembers and will consider "My Sharona", and Doug Fieger, to be a brilliant slice of power pop at its finest. Few of us can even remember whom Robert John is, let alone wonder why "Sad Eyes" was a hit.

In any case, I do intend to vote for "My Sharona" once it becomes eligible for the revisited class of 2005. However, I will not be able to vote for it if this song project is not acted upon. Hopefully, within the next few days or so, the song project can begin.

I'm thinking the same thing as LAX. I know I said earlier I'd plan to stay out of the album hunt until at least 1965/1966, but the rate everythings going, you're not gonna make it out of the 50's.

I've been sitting on the song project as well. This I hoped to vote on right off. I'm not sure what's going on here, but this thing is gonna cave in before you even start.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Saturday, 11.13.10 @ 18:28pm


So if not U2, then who could it possibly be? I don't see anyone else as close to The Beatles as U2 are, or maybe in 30-35 years, Green Day could take the crown, just a thought. I heard some comments about Green Day having great potential, I'd also have to agree, especially with the impact they've created over the last 10 years.

Posted by Brittany on Saturday, 11.13.10 @ 21:16pm


Lax, Cheesecrop- We are starting the first song class on Monday, so as to give Donnie more time to work on our songs list.

I do think though that once we get going, a week per round is too much time. I propose that we make these rounds five or six days long.

"From what I've read, he already seems to think he's the one.

Having that big an ego at that age, he's more likely to be the next Linday Lohan." - Darin RG

He said that? God. Let me know when Bieber upsets his mother and people in charge of him by losing his virginity.

It's good for someone in the musical world to be confident, but you have to learn some humility. Apparently Jon Bon Jovi considers his peers to be Dylan, Springsteen and Bono, whereas I don't know of a single critic or musician (except maybe Jann Wenner and Little Steven) that thinks he's even worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence as them, so in my mind that's a 5-year penalty as far as him going into the Hall.

Similarly, have any of you ever heard of the Northern Irish Britpop group Ash? No? Well, they once said: "We are way better than The Beatles." I can't access the article where they said it, but by all accounts they said it. For background: Their debut album, Trailer, was released in October 1994, 4 months after His N Hers, 2 months after Definitely Maybe, 6 months after Parklife and 8 days after Dog Man Star, while their second album, 1977, was their breakthrough and was released in May 1996, 7 months after (What's the Story?) Morning Glory, 6 months after Different Class, 8 months after The Great Escape and 1 year after Elastica. They're a good group, but they don't very often get talked about among the Britpop elite, let alone in the same conversation as The Beatles, and according to AllMusic there are only about a handful of bands that cite them as an influence, and quite rightly. They left it too late to make a real impact in Britpop, they didn't matter at their peak and they still don't matter now. So what on earth were they bragging about?

Humility can be important in the music business. If anybody does manage to be considered greater than The Beatles by a music panel, it'll be in the future, and I don't think it'll be anybody we know about now. Just my opinion. Oh, and the song votes start tomorrow, and that's when the second album vote will begin. Good work Donnie.

I doubt it could be green day either Brittany, The beatles acheived what they did in 7 years, green Day has had nearly 20.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 05:56am


Yeah, I have to agree with GFW on Green Day. Good band, great success, but they never had the innovation, importance (to the overall music world, not to you personally) or impact to become the greatest ever. Like U2, they've hit their peak.

When it happens, it'll likely be a band who hasn't even formed yet, and they may be playing to an audience that hasn't even been born yet.

Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 11:21am


What it's going to take for any act to achieve a Beatles level of importance is a massive, landscape changing initial impact followed by six to eight strong, innovative, critically acclaimed albums.

I'm thinking of someone who has a Nirvana like debut, followed by a Radiohead like career.

There's nobody out there currently who comes close to qualifying.

Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 11:38am


Also, they gotta do it in a short period of time, not 30 years or whatsoever.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 11:44am


I'm with DarinRG. Nobody that we know of currently.

Part of the reason the Beatles could do it is the same reason Elvis could do it. Both already had a decent backlog of material so that by the time they broke big with the Pop audience, there was a bunch more stuff that was there to satiate the appetite, and parts of those backlogs were soon charting (stuff originally released on Sun or recored with Tony Sheridan). Plus with a prodigious recording ethic, both were able to keep cranking out stuff.

The reason that this isn't happening today is threefold, imo: one, it's practically taboo to record covers, and both the Beatles and Elvis did A LOT of that in the early days... and compounded in Elvis's case, it's practically taboo to record stuff you didn't write yourself; two, because it's expected for major artists to write for themselves, they don't have nearly the same output that Elvis or the Beatles did, and not the same recording ethic either; three, the digital age. Digging up any backlog is so much easier now, and the record labels don't have nearly the contorl on the outflow of backlog. They can re-issue it, but those who are interested will already be ten steps ahead of them, so for an artist to dominate the charts the way both Elvis Presley and the Beatles did in 1956 and 1964 respectively, it requires an artist and/or record label to have a much tighter leash on the product line itself.

Posted by Philip on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 11:49am


So basically, its gonna be impossible for this to happen?

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 12:09pm


Maybe. It pretty much will be if they try to do it the same way that Elvis and the Beatles did it. If it's gonna be done, it'll have to be done in a completely novel way. Maybe record a huge backlog, a la Buddy Holly, and with the right promotions, create a major explosion with that prepared material.

Posted by Philip on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 14:35pm


Yeah... basically they'll need to be majorly impactful from the word "go" (similar to Nirvana, Pearl Jam, The Sex Pistols, The Ramones or The Clash, or even The Beatles or Elvis or the Stones themselves) and then have a string of albums considered by critics and/or fellow music industry people to be remarkably strong and consistent (ala U2, R.E.M. or The Who). It'll be difficult, but it could be done... there's just nobody out there right now who could do it. U2 and Green Day have already hit their peaks as far as most people are concerned, and it took both a few years to make their impact felt. Same with Radiohead, though it'll be interesting to see how the rest of their career goes. Joy Division were off to an outstanding start and so if they'd carried on and gained some Stateside success... except that rumor has it Ian was planning for Closer to be the last album anyway. Along the same line of thinking, New Order never had a chance, being in the shadow of Joy Division. I wonder whether Guns 'n' Roses had the potential to do so if they hadn't blown it? No, if it happens, it'll be someone who doesn't exist yet, like Philip said. Nobody's going to sell Beatles or Elvis like numbers again, so they'll have to accomplish it purely based on the music.

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 16:35pm


They'll need to be far more prodigious than U2 or the Who though. They can't take a couple years for the creative juices to restore themselves. How many albums did the Beatles release in '65, '66, '67, '68 and '69? I mean, they had started to taper off by the end, but 2 albums a year minimum, plus the singles that WEREN'T on albums in between (Hey Jude, Paperback Writer, The Ballad Of John And Yoko, I Feel Fine, etc.) They were just as important as keeping the Beatles fresh for the public as the innovative and incredible albums.

Posted by Philip on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 16:45pm


Interesting take on everything here. A few things I wanted to say.

First off, it doesn't matter whatsoever what any sort of music panel thinks, it's what the fans think. The idea that some sort of lofty, obscure group will decide this is foolish. It's the reason I won't check out stuff like Pitchfork or AllMusic, or whomever's out there doing this stuff.

Second, it would seem that you'd have to have a career that spanned longer than a few yrs. in order to have the impact the Beatles had. Don't forget, technically the Beatles had 8 yrs. recording from 62-70, plus several yrs. prior as a touring outfit. None of the major acts (Beatles, Presley, Stones, Zep, Clash, Nirvana, Radiohead, etc.) emerged as full-blown genuises instantaneously.

Finally...

What it's going to take for any act to achieve a Beatles level of importance is a massive, landscape changing initial impact followed by six to eight strong, innovative, critically acclaimed albums.

I'm thinking of someone who has a Nirvana like debut, followed by a Radiohead like career.

There's nobody out there currently who comes close to qualifying.

Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 11:38am
--------------------------------------------------
O.K.... technically I know this is cheating a bit... but...

If you throw out Radiohead's "Pablo Honey" & weld the careers of the two bands together, you get something like this:

Bleach - 1989
Nevermind - 1991
In Utero - 1993
MTV Unplugged - 1994
The Bends - 1995
O.K. Computer - 1997
Kid A - 2000
Amnesiac - 2002
Hail To The Thief - 2003
In Rainbows - 2007

If this is the case, than theoretically - THEORETICALLY - it's still quite possible that it can happen. And judging by the list above, it's possible that you might not have to wait another 15-20 yrs. for a single band to put it together. Even under modern conditions, it's possible, if you subscribe to the (admittedly doctored) list above.

Donnie - How is the song list going? Will it be ready for tomorrow?

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 19:20pm


Do we seriously need Donnie to post a huge songs list for us to come up with 25 songs each year? Maybe for the Influence songs, but even then, we can go a long time before having to resort to needing a song list. Just sayin'. I'm sure Donnie doesn't mind doing it, but I'm also fairly sure we'll be ok for the first few cycles if he's not done by tomorrow.

Posted by Philip on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 19:27pm


I am planning on posting the list later this morning. Look for it be posted anytime between 8-11 am ET

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 00:21am


And as far as I know, this we will be doing the 1986 Song election. Then beginning next Monday (a week from today) we will then do the 1987 class for both albums and songs. That was the plan anyway.

As to LAX's pushy comments, learn to read what's posted on the group. Myself, Gassman, and plenty of other had discussed all week that the project was due to begin on Monday. Quit complaining. I'm working my ass off. You don't like it, get over it.

*this week, we will be doing the 1986 Song election.


Sorry for my typo :/

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 00:24am


While more work could honestly be done with the list of eligible songs, we've waited long enough to get this project going, and most of the stuff that could be added to the list is probably not going to get much interest from voters anyway.

Compiled for our project, is 43 pages worth (on the Microsoft Word program) of eligible songs for our Early Influences category, songs that were released from roughly 1895-1953, songs that served as the defining music of the first half of the 20th century. Blues, Country, and proto-rock and roll (jump blues/R&B) are the main genres covered here. There is plenty of jazz too, although more research should be done on jazz honestly. But I think I've included enough material from the majority of the major artists for voters to consider. Traditional pop could honestly use much more work as well, but it'll do for now, plus I don't see traditional pop getting much notice from voters anyway.

I wasn't able to get to much folk, although folk music didn't become really prominent until the 1950's so there's probably not much folk to consider for the Early Influences category anyway. But there is plenty of material from Woody Guthrie and the Weavers to consider here.

I was not able to get to gospel at all unfortunately. Hopefully as time goes along, I'll be able to go back and do research on it and add some gospel to the list.

Of course, to the voters here, if anyone thinks of or wants to vote for a song that I didn't include, by all means vote for it. I wasn't able to get every single song from 1895-1953 on this list, so I'm probably missing stuff (especially for jazz, traditional pop, folk, and gospel).

So without further ado, I will begin by posting the lists of eligible songs for our Early Influences category.


My main advice to everyone here is to copy and paste my following posts into a Microsoft Word program on your computer that way you have the eligible lists on your computer, which will be much easier for all of you to look at and thus make your choices. It's not going to look pretty on here lol.


But anyways, here goes. Hopefully Future Rock Legends will not make my posts out to be spam and screw them up. :/

And there are our nominees for the Early Influences category for our Songs HOF project.

Hopefully that should be enough (:P) for everyone to choose between for awhile. Again, I would like to expand the jazz, traditional pop, and folk categories more (they're admittedly missing a lot), and gospel music I couldn't get to at all in time, so it definitely needs some research done. But we have quite a few months that this project is going to last I'm sure, so I'm sure down the road I'll have time to go back and continue my research and add to the list.

Again, if anyone thinks of any songs I missed, and you know for a fact that they were released in 1953 or before, then they are eligible for this category and please vote for them.

Also if anyone has any interest in doing more research on this stuff, let me know and we can collaborate or something.


So now onto the regular Songs category!

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 09:41am


Our regular category is for the modern era of popular music which we are stating begins in 1954. Becuase 1954 was the year that Elvis Presley made his first real recordings, the year that "(We're Gonna) Rock Around the Clock" was recorded and first released, a song that is considered the song that kicked off the rock and roll revolution. In addition many other pioneering rock and roll songs on the R&B side were released in this year including "Shake, Rattle, & Roll) (by Big Joe Turner), "Earth Angel (Will You Be Mine)" (by the Penguins), and "Sh-Boom" (by the Chords) were released and crossed over to the pop charts.

Now beings this is the 1986 class, and with the 25 year eligibility rule, that means that songs that were released between 1954 (our starting point for this category) and 1960 are eligible. Songs would in theory be voted on in 1985 (25 years after 1960), and then inducted the following year in 1986.

So this category will cover the 2nd half of the 1950's and 1960, the first year of the 60's, basically the first 6 years of rock and roll.

In addition to rock and roll and soul/R&B, blues and country will also be heavily featured. Once again I wasn't able to get very far on traditional pop music, and I practically didn't make it to jazz at all, so I'm not going to include jazz on the nominees list (which at this point jazz was more of an album-orientated form of music anyway). I also wasn't able to get to folk or gospel at all either. So Folk, Jazz, and Gospel are the major forms of music that won't be on this list. In that case, if anyone wants to vote for any folk, jazz, or gospel songs that were released between 1954-1960, please vote for them. Or if anyone is interested in doing research for these categories, let me know and we'll collaborate info or something.


So with that said, here's what everyone's really been waiting for. The eligible songs for our regular category of the Songs HOF!

"Also, they gotta do it in a short period of time, not 30 years or whatsoever."

It really doesn't matter about the time period in which they do it, it matters about IF they can do it, and I think Green Day can. They still have time, they've been around for 20 plus years now, who knows, maybe in 30 years from now, they will completely re-invent themselves and become a band nobody thought they could be, it's all about patience.

Donnie-

Just for clarification, I understand that you did not get into jazz, folk, etc. in the regular category for these lists. Will you have time to do these genres in the upcoming years? If not, I will try to help you work on those areas.

I'd hate to see artists like Nina Simone, the Kingston Trio and Peter, Paul & Mary get slighted due to the information not being readily available.

And thank you for all your amazing work!

DC-

Over time, I probably will, but it may be awhile. Because the thing is, my work is far from over. I just managed to get a good portion of the Early Influences category done (although of course more stuff could and should be added, particularly for jazz, folk, gospel, and traditional pop. Blues, country, and proto rock and roll are in excellent shape I feel), and the first year done (1954-1960). So each week I will have to update and do research on a whole new year for the next 6-8 months straight (depending on how long the project lasts).

Now each year will probably be easier to do than this first part, because I will only need to research one year at a time, compared to almost 60 years worth of music which I did for the first part of the project, but I'll only have on average about 2-3 days worth of time in a week to do the research on the year.


So in short, I probably could use the help.

I'm going to try over the next few weeks to really go all out on this, and try to get myself ahead. I'd like to finish 2-4 years worth of elibile songs and albums in a weeks time. If I can manage that I can get ahead and then maybe do some further work on the Early Influences category and the genres missing in the regular category. But that's not a guarantee.


So if you'd like to help out with the jazz, folk, traditional pop and gospel categories, that would be awesome. I already have lists of most of the major artists to consider for all of those genres. But I have yet to organize them (folk, gospel, and traditional pop, anyway) by decade, and then of course get the lists of songs and albums by each artist.

If you're interested in helping out, look me up on Facebook (Donnie Durham), add me and we can communicate further on there.

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 22:11pm


And I must say this songs project and albums project are going to be awesome. The album project is admittedly moving a bit slow beings we're not real familiar or major fans of the the majority of the current eligible albums, but once we get to the mid '60s, it's going to be fun as hell.

And the songs project is already great, and insanely difficult to choose between.

I just hope we can get a majority of the great blues, country, rock and roll, and soul songs from the '50s in before we get to the British Invasion and "Classic Rock" period. It's going to be tough, because there's so many great songs that are deserving.

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 22:16pm


When's the deadline? Although I plan to vote tomorrow or the day after.

Posted by Casper on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 23:39pm


As far as I know, voting is supposed to last a week, which means voting will conclude next Monday. On that day, the voting for the 1987 class for both the albums and songs project will commence.

Unless plans change.

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 23:57pm


Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash was released in 1963 Cheesecrop so it will not be eligible until the 1989 class. You have another song vote.

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.15.10 @ 17:41pm

--------------------------------------------------
Big Joe Turner - Shake, Rattle, & Roll

Posted by Cheesecrop on Tuesday, 11.16.10 @ 05:18am


Also to Cheesecrop.

I found that you voted for "I Just Want to Make Love to You" by Muddy Waters in the Early Influences category. But it was actually released in 1954, which makes it a candidate for the regular category rather than the Early Influences category.

So if you want to, you can replace your original vote for "Ring of Fire" with "I Just Want to Make Love to You" instead of "Shake, Rattle, & Roll." And then choose another song for the Early Influences category.

Or just leave your replacement of "Ring of Fire" as "Shake, Rattle, & Roll" and pick another song for your Early Influences vote. Perhaps another Muddy Waters song instead ("Rollin' Stone would probably be the prime candidate).

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.16.10 @ 06:32am


Oh yeah, to add to my vote:
La Bamba - Ritchie Valens

'Dr. W - "Crazy" isn't eligbile until next year. You have another song vote.'

Bummer. What'd I Say (1959) is eligible this year, I think. I'll take that one instead.

Posted by Dr. W on Tuesday, 11.16.10 @ 12:52pm


Well, now we know when the album project will continue for the Revisited Class of 1987. Thank you for informing us when this will be continuing.

I do have a request for the song project. Can we have an update on which songs have already been voted upon by fellow posters? This, granted, might prove difficult. Yet, this will give us a clear projection of which songs in both early influences and modern era are getting the most votes.

Not wanting to appear as the pest in the webpage,

Ah, i missed "Nobody Know When You're Down And Out" Put that in as a influence song for me, I love the Derek & The Dominos cover.

I'm the white guy with a goatee, smiling, and holding a siamese cat. And I'm from Indianapolis, IN. Wow, I didn't think there was too many people with my name.

It's not your name that's causing all this confusion, it's the cat...

I noticed something else wrong on Dr. W's ballot. He put "Your Cheatin' Heart" by Hank Williams in the regular songs category. But as a song released in 1953, it's actually an "Early Influences" song. So he has yet another song to choose for the regular category.

I'm still lost at what's going on in this forum, mainly because more than half of this consisted of arguing (shame on you guys! lol). I'm assuming that this is all about songs that influenced and had great impact. I've read through Donnie's list and he did a heck of a job posting it all. I'd like to add one more 'pre-rock and roll' song to the list. It's a very obscure song by The Perails, called 'The Boss Walk'. It's on Youtube, and it can be found on the compilation 'Roots of Rock and Roll: the sound of Louisiana and Mississippi'. Let me know if you agree!

Posted by Jason on Thursday, 11.18.10 @ 13:24pm


My Early Influences votes:

Woody Guthrie- This Land is Your Land (1944)
Billie Holiday- Strange Fruit (1939)
Bing Crosby- White Christmas (1942)
Jackie Brenston- Rocket 88 (1951)
The Drifters - Money Honey (1953)
Judy Garland- Over the Rainbow (1939)
Muddy Waters - Rollin' Stone (1950)
George Gershwin - Rhapsody in Blue (1924)
Blue Moon of Kentucky - Bill Monroe (1946)
Billy Ward & His Dominoes - Sixty Minute Man (1951)


Also, I'd like to again try and gauge support for cutting off the influences voting after ten elections. It will give us a nice, round number of 100 songs that shaped rock and roll, whilst also allowing voters to focus their attention on their regular 25 song ballots.

Posted by Casper on Thursday, 11.18.10 @ 17:33pm

Posted by Casper on Thursday, 11.18.10 @ 18:04pm


Yeah, "Hound Dog" votes were definitely missing in the last update...I was wondering why it wasn't listed at all and it received my vote for that reason.

Posted by Casper on Thursday, 11.18.10 @ 18:07pm


The only other discrepency I found in Donnie's count (aside from Hound Dog missing and GFW's slightly early votes missing) was Tutti Frutti was missing one vote (someone changed Ribg of Fire (not eligible) to Tutti Frutti... so including GFW's vote for Tutti Frutti it should have been 7 votes... not 5... and now with Casper's vote, Tutti Frutti is up to 8.

Posted by Darrin A on Friday, 11.19.10 @ 03:48am


Thanks to Darrin and anyone else that caught my errors.

I have "Hound Dog" listed with the rest of the songs on my voting update page on my Microsoft Word. I just forgot to type out "Hound Dog" for some reason.

And yeah I missed GFW's votes. I forgot he voted early, so I just started with all of the votes that were put in after I posted the eligible songs list. Sorry GFW.

Posted by Donnie on Friday, 11.19.10 @ 06:28am

Just curious, have mien been counted? I dont see Wonderful World by Sam Cooke anywhere on the vote tally.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 11.21.10 @ 06:15am


GFW - Its there, right in between "The Great Pretender" and "El Paso."

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 11.21.10 @ 11:13am


Hate to be nit-picky, but I found a few possible miscounts in the last update. Unless I'm mistaken,

Jailhouse Rock should have 10, not 9
Bye Bye Love should have 6, not 5
That's all right mama 5, not 4

The Entertainer in influences should have 3, not 2

Posted by Darrin A on Sunday, 11.21.10 @ 13:44pm


Ah, so it is.

Reminder to all that voting closes tomorrow at 3pm Eastern time.

Also I have made the fallowing decision on ties for the album/song project:

- It seems to me that people are getting annoyed by tie breakers

- I have always decided to be a little less strict on rules for these projects because I felt like we did a really good job on the rules in Revisited/Projected

- All albums and songs tied at the end of the voting period will get in if the total number of inductions is under 15 albums, 28 songs and 13 early influence songs (3 extras)

- If the total number of inductions is over 15 albums, 28 songs or 13 early influence songs, then none of the albums/songs will be inducted that year

- If anyone has any other suggestions or objections let me know. I just don't want anymore tie breakers because this process is already a bit longer than the last project. Which I have no problem with because I think it is needed.

Corrected Voting Update:

I know in the Rock Hall Revisited/Projected project it was custom to post the lists of eligible songs and albums once voting for the previous class has closed and voting for the new class has started. However I will not be available to be on the computer when Gassman closes the project and won't be until tomorrow morning, so I will go ahead and post the list of eligible songs for our 1987 class right now.

The lists consists of songs from the genres of blues, country, rock and roll, and soul/R&B. I was not able to get to traditional pop, jazz (which I'm not really planning on doing anyway as at this point jazz is more of an album-orientated form of music), gospel, folk, nor any kind of foreign forms of music that were starting to come into being around 1961.

As I stated in the albums project, I'll be off work tomorrow, so if everyone would like I can try to get some time in and do research on those genres and add some songs to the lists of eligible songs.

But also, if anyone here knows of a song from those genres that is eligible (had to be released in 1961 or prior, no later) and want to vote for it, then please vote for it.

So without further ado here is the list of songs that were released in 1961 and thus will be joining the eligible songs list for our Songs HOF project....

Donnie-

If you have time tomorrow to work on those other genres that would be fantastic! But, it won't get really important until next round when Peter, Paul & Mary come in and kick off the American folk movement.

In the meantime, the biggest folk song released at this point (off the top of my head) is "Tom Dooley" (1958), so I hope we get that in at some point.

Please Please Please is by James Brown & The Famous Flames, not James solo. In fact, according to Famous Flames founder Bobby Byrd, the first 5000 or so copies of Please Please Please were simply credited to "The Famous Flames", and Brown's name was not put in front of the group.

Wow, what happened to "I Only Have Eyes For You"? I didn't vote for it this round or last, but I figured it would be leading the pack since it came so close last time.

Also, I'd like to push for "Will You Love Me Tomorrow." Probably the greatest girl group song ever, in my opinion. I hope we get that one in soon.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 11.28.10 @ 05:29am


To GFW....

"Beyond the Sea" was released in 1960, so it is a definite pick for the regular songs category. You have another "Early Influences" song vote.

Posted by Donnie on Sunday, 11.28.10 @ 19:52pm


You also only voted for 16 regular category songs, but when you add "Beyond the Sea" to them, that still leaves you with 8 more regular songs votes.

Posted by Donnie on Sunday, 11.28.10 @ 19:53pm


I'm also going to be honest and admit I've had little time to work on the 1962 eligible lists for albums and songs. I will spend the entire night and early day tomorrow working on the lists, and will try to get as much done as I can, but they most likely will not be complete.

Posted by Donnie on Sunday, 11.28.10 @ 19:54pm


An update, I have rock and roll, and the few classic rock artists that are eligible at this point done and will have R&B/soul done hopefully within the next hour and a half. I also have a little bit of folk done. Once I get to that point, I will post those three/four genres for 1962. I will have not gotten to blues, country, and jazz yet. I'll be sleeping/working all day today, so I will not have any time to work on any more of the list of eligible songs/albums today. So I will work on country/blues/jazz all morning and night on Tuesday and post what I have done then. Sorry for any inconvenience. :(

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.29.10 @ 07:02am


Thats okay Donnie, post what you have. I will let people change their votes if they need to include a song/album that is in your blues, country and jazz lists.

Also this is a big year! First major recordings for The Beatles, Beach Boys and Bob Dylan!

Again I will try to complete blues, jazz, and country over the next 24-48 hours and have them posted up but Tuesday/Wednesday.

I've fallen way behind on Traditional Pop, although I'm not as worried about that genre, as with us getting ready to dive into the "classic rock" era within the next couple classes, traditional pop itself became less relevant in this time of musical history. But I would like to at some point catch up on it and update it for the previous years.

I forgot that "He's A Rebel" and "She's Got You" came out in 62. I'll be voting for them next round if they don't make it this time.

Posted by DC on Monday, 11.29.10 @ 19:43pm


Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to stump for "Poor Little Fool" by Ricky Nelson. We've got to have at least one song by Nelson in the HoF, and this is the best choice, in my opinion. James Burton's guitar work absolutely shines on this track.

Posted by DC on Monday, 11.29.10 @ 20:01pm


Nice work Future Rock Legends with the listings, but too things:

1) You missed "Rebel Rouser" (1958) - Duane Eddy, but that was mainly my fault because I forgot to list it right away.

2) How are you organizing the listings up above? I am just curious because I can't figure it out, lol!

Here are my choices for the Song Project Revisited Class of 1988. I will attempt to not delve into cover versions, and will mainly focus on original material. Here they are:

The Beatles - Love Me Do
Booker T. And The M.G.s - Green Onions
Dick Dale - Misirlou
The Platters - The Great Pretender
Elvis Presley - Mystery Train
The Everly Brothers - All I Have To Do Is Dream
Connie Francis - Who's Sorry Now?
Link Wray - Rumble
Roy Orbison - Crying
The Beach Boys - Surfin' Safari
Bobby Darin - Mack The Knife
Del Shannon - Runaway
The Four Seasons - Sherry
La Vern Baker - Jim Dandy
James Brown - Please Please Me
Little Richard - Long Tall Sally
Buddy Holly - Not Fade Away
Sam Cooke - Twistin' The Night Away
Ben E. King - Spanish Harlem
The Marvellettes - Please Mr. Postman
Ricky Nelson - Travelin' Man
The Shirelles - Mama Said
The Drifters - There Goes My Baby
Bo Diddley - You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover
Clyde McPhatter - Little Bitty Pretty One

And for the early influence picks:

T-Bone Walker - Call It Stormy Monday (Tuesday Is Just As Bad)
Scott Joplin - The Entertainer
Bessie Smith - Downhearted Blues
Mississippi John Hurt - Stack O' Lee
Bessie Smith - Nobody Knows When You're Down And Out
Nat "King" Cole - (Get Your Kicks On) Route 66
John Lee Hooker - Boogie Chillen
The Orioles - It's Too Soon To Know
Bill Haley - Crazy Man, Crazy
The Weavers - If I Had A Hammer

And there are whom I have picked for this 1988 Revisited Class. Fellow posters can expect quite a lot more British-centric works as the weeks go by. Shifting tastes and locating individuality will be commonplace.

Hearing these tracks without ever owning a vinyl record,

GFW - 2 of your songs (I Got A Woman - Ray Charles & Money (That's What I Want) - Barret Strong) were voted in last year and Twist and Shout by The Beatles wasn't released until the next year. Plus you still have 10 song votes left.

With you influenece vote: Crossroads was voted in last year as well and Beyond The Sea isn't eligible for the influence category. So I will move that to the regular category.

So that gives you:

12 more Regular Song Votes
6 more Influence Song Votes

I am not going to count your votes until you get them straigtened out.

Can't I just leave it as it is?

Posted by GFW on Thursday, 12.2.10 @ 10:44am


The song by James Brown & The Famous Flames is called "Please Please Please". not "Please Please Me". That is a Beatles song.

Posted by Bill G. on Friday, 12.3.10 @ 00:25am


GFW - I just don't see why you wouldn't want to submitt a complete ballot. I am guessing you know 12 more songs that you would be willing to vote for. Just look at songs that others have voted for. If you really don't want to then, then yeah I will count what you have.

Bill G. - My mistake

Posted by Gassman on Friday, 12.3.10 @ 01:11am


I'm going to have to resign from providing the lists of eligible albums and songs for awhile. I am currently having issues with my computer (I can't get it to do anything), thus I will have little computer access for awhile. So therefore I won't be able to do it. I don't know how long it will take before I can return to working on and providing the lists, but until I can get regular computer access. Someone else will have to do it.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to the voters here. But this is a little out of my control. Sorry :(

I did not realize that this group was still together working on a new project. Sorry I’m a bit late to the game, and since I’m late voting in this round, I’ll just vote for some of the top vote-getters that I agree with. Starting next round, I’ll go through the eligible lists to form my ballot.

Donnie - Thats too bad, hope you can get your computer fixed soon! I hope we still get votes from you, they are are always top notch!

I will try to create some sort of list my Monday. It won't be as complete as Donnie's but I will try to get the important ones listed.

GFW - Thats okay, I know this early period can be tough on some. I know that it is an area that I feel like I need to know more about.

Hey Gassman, I believe "Travelin' Man" by Ricky Nelson has 3 votes.

Posted by DC on Sunday, 12.5.10 @ 20:32pm


Thanks DC

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 12.5.10 @ 22:52pm


Hey Gassman, I can't this week, but how would you feel about working out a plan where you and I split up the weekly list duties (probably by genre)? That way one person doesn't have to do it all. We can then post them Sundays before the next round begins. So, I could do jazz, folk, blues, etc. and you could do mainstream pop and rock, or something like that.

I do need to bring this up, though- I'm worried about how few voters we have at this time. I'm wondering if it's because the voting period is so long and people are losing interest. Either way, as more songs become eligible, the ballots are going to become increasingly different and we are going to have very few songs that receive more than one vote each round.

Just a few thoughts.

Posted by DC on Monday, 12.6.10 @ 00:31am


DC - Yeah I was realizing that the number of voters seem to be down. Hopefully some people from the Revisited/Projected come back when we get to a later time period.

In terms of doing the lists, I would be willing to do a spilt in duties. I would just need to know where Donnie got his information from. I don't I will be able to have a list for 1963 ready for tomorrow as I have had way too much school work. It will probably come on Tuesday.

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 12.6.10 @ 01:32am


DC / Gass - I'll be quite honest w/you, I'm not sure if I will be jumping in at all. My problem is twofold. One, this feels like a homework assgnment more than anything meant for fun/pass the time. I wish that the requirements would come down. Perhaps bring it down to 20 songs/10 albums, or even 15 songs/10 albums.

The other thing is the formatting of it all. I am well aware we are using the same model as the rock & roll Hall. Thing is, the Rock Hall is only voting in a few bands per year. It is nothing for them to choose an act from 57, 63, 70, 81, & 84 & place them in. We are listing a bunch of songs & albums, yet we are adopting the same carry-over formula.

I was under the initial impression that there would be a slotting system of sorts, so when we voted for songs from say, 1964, we'd only vote for songs & albums from that year. I don't care for having a song from 1959 in the group from 1972. Likewise, I don't want anything from 72 lingering in 81, anything from 81 in 96, or 96 in 09. In addition, I'd have a set-up where you could only vote for a maximum of two songs from each artist. I was under the early impression that we were attempting to honor hits from artists who might not be HOF'ers here.

While I enjoy watching it all happen, I humbly prefer to pass on the affair, unless it is made easier & given more structure.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Monday, 12.6.10 @ 05:40am


I just don't have enough time. I only have work access & I can't spend the time I would think is necessary to give this project its due.

Enjoy scanning the songs/albums you have listed though.

I am really busy today with homwork and such, but I am planning on getting a list of songs/albums done by tomorrow. It will be nowhere as inclusive as what Donnie did, but I will try to get all the highlights and major recordings. If I miss anything feel free to add to my list.

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 12.6.10 @ 13:35pm


Sounds good Gassman. By next week I'll try to get Donnie's sources of info and we can figure out a plan to split up the list-making duties.

Also, this is our Influences Class for this year:

“The Entertainer” (1902) – Scott Joplin
“Downhearted Blues” (1923) – Bessie Smith
“Nobody Knows When You're Down And Out” (1929) – Bessie Smith

"I wish that the requirements would come down. Perhaps bring it down to 20 songs/10 albums, or even 15 songs/10 albums."

Surely if Cheesecrop (or anyone) would rather vote for 10 albums instead of 12, they should be able to... and likewise they can vote for as many songs as they want to up to 25. What's the big deal ? There shouldn't be a requirement, in my opinion, for people to HAVE to vote for the maximum number, is there?

If Cheesecrop only wants to vote for songs from the newly eligible year, he should be able to do that too.

No need to change rules.... and we definitely need more voters. Inducting songs with 3 or 4 votes only is a bit questionable.

DC - West End Blues is already in.

And RATS, I think I took Lovesick Blues off my vote this time around because I didn't think anyone else would vote for it. I'll put it back on next time and hopefully a few more will vote for it as well... It's one of my favourite HW songs

Posted by Darrin A on Wednesday, 12.8.10 @ 12:27pm


Thanks Darrin. Switch out West End Blues for The Christmas Song by NKC.

I've been waiting for my ballot to clear so I could add Lovesick Blues. I'll keep voting for it now until it gets in.

Posted by DC on Wednesday, 12.8.10 @ 12:30pm


Darrin- I just looked back, and West End Blues is not in yet. If it is, go ahead and switch it out for The Christmas Song. If it's not, keep the vote for West End Blues and I'll vote for The Christmas Song next time.

Posted by DC on Wednesday, 12.8.10 @ 12:34pm


Hmm, I checked the list and West End Blues isn't inducted as I thought. Couldn't sworn it was.

Would it be possible to have a voting update for what songs might be inducted in the Revisited Class of 1989? In any case, I should have my listing of song picks by tomorrow. I will warn all of you fellow posters, though: it is naimly British Invasion centric, at least in the main 25 category. But then again, this is a rather apt time for inductions of those great recordings, is it not?

Trying not to think about what might have been:(,

I'm working on the song list for 1964, and it is absolutely ridiculous how many classic songs came out that year, from Motown to the British Invasion to the Beach Boys, to some jazz and country classics, to some legendary Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nina Simone and Louis Armtrong recordings. We'll be working on inducting songs from 1963 and 1964 for many rounds to come, that's for sure.

I do apologize for my delay in my picks for the songs to be inducted in the Revisited Class of 1989. I have been pleasantly busy with new endeavors. In any case, here they are to add to the vote tallies. Hopefully, these songs will be the inductees. First, the leading 25:

The Beatles - I Want To Hold Your Hand
The Beatles - She Loves You
Bob Dylan - Blowin In The Wind
Bo Diddley - Who Do You Love
The beach Boys - Surfin USA
Johnny Cash - Ring Of Fire
Peter, Paul, And Mary - Puff, The Magic Dragon
The Ronettes - Be My Baby
Jan And Dean - Surf City
The Beatles - All My Loving
The Beach Boys - Little Deuce Coupe
Brenda Lee - Rockin Around The Christmas Tree
Patsy Cline - She's Got You
Little Richard - Lucille
The Kingston Trio - Tom Dooley
The Coasters - Yakety Yak
The Four Seasons - Walk Like A Man
Bobby Darin - Splish Splash
Dusty Springfield - I Only Want To Be With You
The Beach Boys - Surfer Girl
The Beach Boys - Be True To Your School
The Shirelles - Mama Said
Connie Francis - Stupid Cupid
Frank Sinatra - I've Got You Under My Skin
Little Anthony And The Imperials - Tears On My Pillow

And now, the 10 early influences:

Mississippi John Hurt - Stack O' Lee
Nat "King" Cole - Unforgettable
Nat "King" Cole - The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire...)
Hank Williams Sr. - Lovesick Blues
Hank Williams Sr. - I Saw The Light
Ella Fitzgerald - A Tisket, A Tasket
Louis Armstrong - West End Blues
Lead Belly - The Midnight Special
Lead Belly And Woody Guthrie - We Shall Be Free
Lead Belly - Goodnight Irene

Well, there they are. I was hoping more posters would join in. I suppose it will come once re reach the 1970s perhaps. We shall see.

Hoping that the picks for induction are in time,

Wow! Next year has so many great songs. Its going to be nearly impossible for me to choose!

I think you missed the songs off of the album The Times They Are a-Changin' by Bob Dylan. The title track is the only song that will probably get in, but I think it should at least be mentioned.

Otherwise great list DC!

To Everyone: It would be really nice if one more person could vote for 1963. As of right now we are only inducting 22 songs because we have too many songs tied at 2 votes.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 12.12.10 @ 20:29pm


Thanks Gassman, and as always, feel free to let me know if I missed something.

I'm really enjoying this! And even though I'd like a few more ballots each year, I don't mind inducting songs with only a few votes because the electorate hear is very knowledgable.

I've been making a playlist of the songs we induct, and I love listening to it while I work and do homework. I'm looking forward to being able to add tracks by CSNY, Springsteen, Eagles, Michael Jackson, Beastie Boys, Nirvana and many more as we continue this project throughout next year.

Very little discussion has been brought up thus far in the HOF, particularly with how we are doing, so I guess I'm about to kickstart things.

First off, I apologize for somewhat dropping out of making the eligible songs and albums lists, although DC seems to be enjoying doing it which is cool. I am having problems with my computer at the moment. I'm hoping to have them fixed soon. Plus I'm also having some personal issues and am also really busy at the moment, so I haven't had the time nor mental capacity to go on them full ahead like I had been wanting to do.

With that said, I do have some concerns thus far with how we are doing thus far.

As far as the Album project, I have no complaints, I think we're doing just fine with that. I was a little concerned after the 2nd class that more 2nd string rock and roll albums were being voted over 1st rate jazz albums, but that trend seemed to go to the way-side in the 3rd class, and as of now we have a good amount of the classic jazz albums from the late 1950's in our HOF. I'm hoping the 4th class puts more of them in.

The Songs Project though, I'm concerned with. I don't think we're doing near as good a job with this as we should be doing.

Now I know we're somewhat limited here. We didn't really have too many classes to get a good amount of all the really deserving 1950's songs in. After today we will only have four classes behind us, before we hit 1964, which is really the kickstart of the golden age of rock and R&B music (Motown hit it really big that year as did the British Invasion and the ensuing American response (folk rock, garage rock, and psychedelic rock) follows in the following year). So with so many great songs becoming eligibile each year from here on out, it's going to be even harder to acknowledge the '50s and early '60s period.

Which is why I'm pretty dissapointed with some of the selections we've made thus far and some of the really great songs we have sitting out which don't look to be making it in anytime soon.

Here are some of the problems I have at this time.


1. As of right now (and I think once the 1989 class is over with this will still be the case unless my votes make a difference which I don't think they will), we only have 1 song from a Blues artist in our HOF, that being "At Last" by Etta James. So many legendary, iconic blues artists have songs eligible for our HOF. Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf, B.B. King, Junior Parker, Slim Harpo, Freddie King, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Jimmy Reed, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Dinah Washington, Guitar Slim, Otis Rush, John Lee Hooker, etc. And not a single song from any of those artists is in our HOF after roughly four classes (I don't think any of those songs will pull ahead into the lead to make it to the 1989 class inductees). No offense, but that is absolutely ridiculous.

Muddy Waters- "Mannish Boy," "I'm Your Hoochie Koochie Man," and "Got My Mojo Working" are all amongst the most iconic songs in Blues history and are in the RNRHOF's 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll list.

Howlin Wolf- "Spoonful" and "Smokestack Lightnin'" are also on that same list and are also amongst the most iconic tracks in blues history.

B.B. King- "Sweet Little Angel" another track on that list.

Jimmy Reed- "Big Boss Man" and "Bright Lights, Big City" two more from that list. Not to mention "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby," "Baby What You Want Me to Do," and "Shame Shame Shame" are also classics.

John Lee Hooker- "Boom Boom" one of the few blues songs that almost any music fan that knows any older music knows and has heard.

Bobby "Blue" Bland- "Turn on Your Love Light" or "Farther on Up the Road" would make great candidates.

Elmore James- "The Sky is Crying" and "Shake Your Moneymaker" are blues-rock standards and would make for serious contenders.

Slim Harpo- "I'm a King Bee" and "Rainin' in My Heart" are blues classics. "Shake Your Hips" is another one coming up for 1966 (1992 class).

Freddie King- "Have You Ever Loved a Woman," "Hide Away," and "The Stumble" are pure classics that have been covered by many rock artists.

Little Walter- "My Babe" and "Boom Boom Out Goes the Lights" are two of the biggest classics of '50s blues.


Any plenty more. Really we should have more blues in by now. We've really dropped the ball on blues.


2. Country music hasn't fared much better though at least it has more than one song in. We have after today, three Johnny Cash songs in which is about right, two Patsy Cline songs, and one Marty Robbins song. Although Tennessee Ernie Ford, Don Gibson, Faron Young, Ray Price, Johnny Horton, Jim Reeves, Loretta Lynn, and George Jones, probably all have songs that should be seriously considered that are eligible. There's more to country music than Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline and Hank Williams. I really hope we remember that as the likes of Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson, just to name a few have eligible songs in the upcoming years.

3. We've really dropped the ball as well on R&B/soul/doo-wop, especially compared to what material we've inducted from the early '60s period.

I am just dumbfounded that "Earth Angel (Will You Be Mine), by the Penguins, "Please Please Please" by James Brown and the Famous Flames, "I Only Have Eyes for You" by the Flamingos, and "Yakety Yak" by the Coasters cannot get inducted after four classes. Truthfully, "You Send Me" by Sam Cooke is as big an ommission though it's not near as remembered by music listeners today. But "You Send Me" is really the first major hit soul music ballad (and Sam Cooke's first big hit). It practically started an entire genre of music (the soul music ballad) and frankly should've been inducted over "Wonderful World" (and I like that song more, but it wasn't as important to soul music nor to Sam Cooke's career). "Earth Angel" is one of the songs that kickstarted the entire rock and roll era. It was the first major crossover doo wop hit that managed to outsell the white pop, cover version of it. A true groundbreaker and one of the '50s all-time classic tunes. "Please Please Please" is quite possibly the greatest R&B song of the 1950's and James Brown's first hit. "I Only Have Eyes for You" is the ultimate doo-wop song, and IMO one of the top 10 love songs of the 20th century. A pure classic. And "Yakety Yak" is probably the Coasters' most well known song and one of the ultimate rock and roll classics of the late '50s. These are absolutely classic songs.

And yet they sit on the outside after four classes, behind songs from the likes of Connie Francis, the Tokens, the Surfaris (though "Wipe Out" is an all-time classic no doubt) and some of the absolutely most weaker tracks from the Beach Boys and the Beatles. We can't get the 5 tracks I mentioned above but we have "Love Me Do" by the Beatles in. I understand everyone was excited to start voting for the Beatles and the Beatles are the greatest band of all-time, but "Love Me Do." Really? It's a good, solid song, but it is nowhere near a Beatles classic, and in the following year, they would genuinely make some of the best recordings of their career and of the '60s ("I Want to Hold Your Hand," "She Loves You," "Twist and Shout," etc.). With that induction, people really jumped the gun on the Beatles I think. "Surfin' Safari" by the Beach Boys is similar although I can see that song being more worthy due to it being the Beach Boys' first major hit that defined their surfer image, and thus became one of the first major surf rock hits (though "Surfin' U.S.A." would destroy it's success and become a much bigger classic in the following year). Although again they would go on to make much bigger classics.

But think about this. Connie Francis and the Tokens have songs in our HOF, but James Brown does not. Really?

Looking at our list, I think there's about 5-8 songs from the early '60s that we've inducted that are far less deserving than plenty of songs we still have to get from the '50s. And unfortunately it's going to get harder and harder to do this, with all of the great material going to be eligible from here on out.

I just really hope that over the rest of the project that we don't just forget about the '50s, and that we do a much better job of our selections. I think every voter should at least try to hold 5 spots on their ballot for 1950's rock and roll and R&B/doo-wop, because we have plenty of genuine classic songs ("I Only Have Eyes for You" and "Yakety Yak" for crying out loud!) to still recognize.

And for the love of God, can we get some Blues in our HOF, please!

Donnie -

Here's my response:

Blues - I have to admit that I have almost forgotten about the Blues for the normal song category. I will try to have at least one Blues song for the next few years. I will probably start off with "Boom Boom" by John Lee Hooker before moving to songs by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and B.B. King.

Country - I will most definitely have songs by Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, etc. Also it looks like another Patsy Cline song will be inducted this year. I don't think this is a huge issue.

R&B - I have had a lot of the songs you mentioned on my ballot. I actually thought that "Please Please Me" got in last year so thats why I didn't vote for it this year. I totally agree on "I Only Have Eyes For You" and "Yakety Yak." "Earth Angel" and "You Send Me" are on my radar and will probably get votes from me soon.

Songs we have inducted - I agree we have some questionable inductees, but I don't think that any are awful. Yet I do feel that "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by The Tokens is totally worthy of induction. Same with "Love Me Do" as it was the earliest written Lennon/McCartney song to hit #1 in the US (abet in 1964).

I don't think that having Connie Francis' best song in our HoF is questionable at all. I do think we should stop there, though. I felt the same way at first about Surfin' Safari and Love Me Do, but I'm okay with it. I don't think we have any inductees that are that bad, yet.

The next few years are so full of HoF-worthy songs that we shouldn't worry too much yet about what's being left out. We'll be playing catch-up for a while. That's why we are bringing this project to the present.

Donnie, I'm glad you mentioned Dinah Washington. I've been voting for "What A Difference A Day Makes" for a while now. I hope we get that one in eventually.

I'm kinda skeptical about this ballot, though. Can you check it out, FRL?

Influence Song Vote!

1. "The Fat Man" (1950) - Fats Domino - One of many contenders for being the first Rock and Roll Song. Also it was Fats Domino's first hit.

2. "Good Rockin' Tonight" (1948) - Wynonie Harris
3. "Take The "A" Train" (1941) - Duke Ellington
4. "Boogie Chillen" (1948) – John Lee Hooker
5. "That's Amore" - Dean Martin (1953)

6. “Its Too Soon To Know” (1948) – The Orioles - Described by some as the first R&B vocal group harmony record. Also considered by many to be the first Rock and Roll Song. Greil Marcus said ""It’s Too Soon To Know" was like Elvis Presley's "That's All Right (Mama)", Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)", Nivana's "Smells like Teen Spirit"–a shock, a dead-in-your-tracks what is that?–a sound that was stylistically confusing and emotionally undeniable."

7. "Can The Circle Be Unbroken (By And By)" - The Carter Family (1935)

8. "The Honeydripper" (1945) – Joe Liggins - One of the earliest hist of a combo R&B group. A precursor to Rock and Roll.

9. "Sixty Minute Man" (1951) – The Dominos - One of the first R&B/black/"race" songs to be a hit on the pop/white charts.

10. T For Texas (Blue Yodel #1) (1927) - Jimmie Rodgers

Darn! Nothing posted since the voting update? Fellow posters, if you do not vote, the Song Project and the Album Project and the induction honors do not get done. Please consider voting; even a vote for a worthless work is still a vote.

With that said, here are the songs I have picked for the Revisited Class of 1990. As always, I start with the 25 in the main field:

The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night
The Beatles - Can't Buy Me Love
The Beatles - I Feel Fine
The Beatles - Eight Days A Week
The Beatles - I Saw Her Standing There
The Beatles - If I Fell
The Beatles - You Can't Do That
The Beach Boys - I Get Around
The Beach Boys - Don't Worry Baby
The Beach Boys - Fun, Fun, Fun
The Beach Boys - All Summer Long
The Beach Boys - The Warmth Of The Sun
The Who - I Can't Explain
The Zombies - She's Not There
The Zombies - Tell Her No
The Four Tops - Baby I Need Your Loving
Sam Cooke - A Change Is Gonna Come
The Temptations - My Girl
The Temptations - The Way You Do The Things You Do
Dionne Warwick - Walk On By
Mary Wells - My Guy
The Drifters - There Goes My Baby
The Drifters - Under The Boardwalk
Stevie Wonder - Fingertips
The Animals - The House Of The Rising Sun

And now, the 10 early influence picks:

The Carter Family - Can The Circle Be Unbroken (By And By)
John Lee Hooker - Boogie Chillen
Duke Ellington - Take The "A" Train
Hank Williams Sr. - You Cheatin Heart
Les Paul - How High The Moon
Mississippi John Hurt - Spike Driver Blues
Hank Williams Sr. - I'm A Long Gone Daddy
Hank Williams Sr. - Long Gone Lonesome Blues
Fats Domino - The Fat Man
Ma Rainey - See See Rider

There we are. The first votes in two days. An important dent will likely be made in the voting tabulations. There should, fortunately, be more voters in the weeks ahead.

Will be voting next week, and the weeks after,

Hey FRL, I noticed at the top of the page you have She Loves You listed as the artist, with "The Beatles" as the song title. Would you mind fixing that when you can?

Posted by DC on Saturday, 12.18.10 @ 03:00am


Dunno whats happened these few days, I think everyone that was intrested voted.

Also what happened to the writeups?

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 12.19.10 @ 04:26am


I have to agree GFW.

Gassman, since I am handling the artist lists now, and that was the main reason we made the voting periods a week long, can we shorten the rounds?

To FRL:

At the top of the page, you have "She Loves You" listed as an artist with the song title, "The Beatles." Would you mind switching those around?

Also, Dionne "Warrick" should be Dionne "Warwick", and "Asturd" Gilberto should be "Astrud" Gilberto.

Gassman, could you be a bit more careful when doing the updates so that doesn't happen as often?

Posted by DC on Monday, 12.20.10 @ 18:52pm

GFW - You didn't vote for talking "World War Three Blues" this time around. What song would you like me to get rid of for "Michelle" and "Yesterday"?

Posted by Gassman on Tuesday, 12.21.10 @ 21:51pm


My Influence Vote!

1. "Brother Can You Spare A Dime" (1932) - Bing Crosby
2. "Good Rockin' Tonight" (1948) - Wynonie Harris
3. "(Ghost) Riders In The Sky" (1949) – Burl Ives 

4. "God Bless The Child" (1942) – Billie Holiday
5. "That's Amore" - Dean Martin (1953)

6. “Its Too Soon To Know” (1948) – The Orioles - Described by some as the first R&B vocal group harmony record. Also considered by many to be the first Rock and Roll Song. Greil Marcus said ""It’s Too Soon To Know" was like Elvis Presley's "That's All Right (Mama)", Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)", Nivana's "Smells like Teen Spirit"–a shock, a dead-in-your-tracks what is that?–a sound that was stylistically confusing and emotionally undeniable."

7. "Snatch And Grab It" (1947) – Julia Lee

8. "The Honeydripper" (1945) – Joe Liggins - One of the earliest hist of a combo R&B group. A precursor to Rock and Roll.

9. "Sixty Minute Man" (1951) – The Dominos - One of the first R&B/black/"race" songs to be a hit on the pop/white charts.

10. T For Texas (Blue Yodel #1) (1927) - Jimmie Rodgers

just noticed I didnt even vote for that song. replace twist and shout with yesterday or michelle or whatever then.

Posted by GFW on Wednesday, 12.22.10 @ 09:14am


Could you be more specific as to whom you want your vote replacement be, GFW? "Whatever then" is not something we all can work with.

In any case, here are my song selections for the Revisited Class of 1991. As always, we start with the 25 songs in the main portion:

The Beatles - Help!
The Beatles - Yesterday
The Beatles - In My Life
The Beatles - Day Tripper
The Beatles - Norwegian Wood
The Beatles - You Can't Do That
The Beatles - If I Fell
The Beatles - I Saw Her Standing There
The Beatles - Ticket To Ride
The Beach Boys - California Girls
The Beach Boys - Help Me, Rhonda
The Beach Boys - Warmth Of The Sun
The Beach Boys - Barbara Ann
The Four Tops - I Can't Help Myself
The Who - My Generation
Simon And Garfunkel - The Sounds Of Silence
Frank Sinatra - It Was A Very Good Year
Frank Sinatra - I've Got You Under My Skin
The Zombies - Tell Her No
John Lee Hooker - Boom Boom
Nina Simone - Feeling Good
Donovan - Catch The Wind
Donovan - Universal Soldier
Bob Dylan - Like A Rolling Stone
Bob Dylan - Subtterranean Homesick Blues

And for the early influence 10 song picks:

Billie Holiday - God Bless The Child
Wynonie Harris - Good Rockin Tonight
Bill Monroe - Mule Skinner Blues
Frank Sinatra - The House I Live In
Bessie Smith - St. Louis Blues
Blind Lemon Jefferson - Matchbox Blues
Robert Johnson - Malted Milk
The Orioles - It's Too Soon To Know
Jimmie Rodgers - T For Texas
Blind Lemon Jefferson - See That My Grave Is Kept Clean

And there you have it. I would ask, though, that once we head into the coming weeks, perhaps we can shorten the voting period for albums and songs to maybe three or four days. That we, the revisited and projected album and song projects will be up to date before the announcement for the finalists of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Class of 2012 in September. In that form, we may also get back to inducting the Projected Rock Hall Class of 2027 and beyond.

Being prepared for a very eventful weekend,

How the hell can you name all of those artists? I'm not trying to sound like a twit here but, I can't come up with those off the top of my head. You must be copying and pasting them off a site and putting them here. I know a lot about music, and I'm only 16, even though I do recognize the majority of the names on your lists so I'm not that dumb, right. Hey, at least I have good taste in music. I'm one of the few girls in my school that still listen to music from the 60's.

I also like Harry Nilsson. "Coconut" is one of my favorite songs on my iPod.

I would also like to add in my early influence "Hoochie Coochie Man (1954)" by Muddy Waters.

Posted by akeem on Friday, 12.24.10 @ 10:28am


Akeem - Due to the fact that "Hoochie Coochie Man" came out in 1954 it cannot be eligible for the influence song category. You could vote for it in the regular song category if you wanted too!

Also Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!!!

6. “Its Too Soon To Know” (1948) – The Orioles - Described by some as the first R&B vocal group harmony record. Also considered by many to be the first Rock and Roll Song. Greil Marcus said ""It’s Too Soon To Know" was like Elvis Presley's "That's All Right (Mama)", Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)", Nivana's "Smells like Teen Spirit"–a shock, a dead-in-your-tracks what is that?–a sound that was stylistically confusing and emotionally undeniable."

10. "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" (1949) - Louis Jordan

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 12.27.10 @ 14:25pm


DC - If you vote for "Only The Lonely" - Roy Orbison this year I will vote for "In Dreams" - Roy Orbison next year.

Some songs I think I need to push:

"People Get Ready" - The Impressions:

- 24th Greatest Song Of All TIme By Rolling Stone
- A very important song for the Civil Rights movement, up there with "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke
- Showed a growing sense of social and political awareness in Curtis Mayfield's writing, which would become his calling card in the 1970's

"Maggie's Farm" - Bob Dylan

- This song is essentially Dylan giving the finger to the protest-folk movement, this is his declaration that he wanted to be a Rock Star
- One of the earliest examples of Dylan going electric
- This is the song that caused the most controversy at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival

"Boom Boom" - John Lee Hooker

- We need to have more Blues songs in our Regular song category like Donnie said
- This is John Lee Hooker's best and most recognized song
- ZZ Top copied the rift for La Grange

"Act Naturally" - Buck Owens

- Also like Donnie said, we need more Country songs that aren't by Patsy Cline or Johnny Cash
- This would be a great representative of the Bakersfield Sound, a genre of Country music that was a reaction to the heavily produced and heavy orchestration of Nashville Country
- The Beatles covered it, so it must be good, lol :P

That was very difficult. I wanted to vote for something by Love, and something by the Monkees, but there just wasn't enough room! I'll be voting for "Alone Again Or" by Love and "Daydream Believer" by the Monkees as soon as they become eligible, though. Those are first-ballot songs.

Greg- For What It's Worth wasn't released until 1967, so you've got another vote.

I did miss River Deep Mountain High, though. Shame on me there. I'll vote for it next year.

Posted by DC on Monday, 12.27.10 @ 23:52pm


Replace For What It's Worth to In The Midnight Hour.

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 12.27.10 @ 23:58pm


Also replace Johnny Ace- My Song with Johnny Ace- Pledging My Love.

Posted by Greg F. on Tuesday, 12.28.10 @ 00:01am


Never mind don't switch My Song for Pledging My Love. Pledging My Love was released after 1954 so I'll vote it in the regular songs later.

Hey FRL-

When you update the top of the page, would you mind changing "Donnie" Warwick to Dionne Warwick?

River Deep Mountain High will be getting my vote next year too, would have this year, but I think it would be best just to wait and not waste a vote.

Posted by akeem on Tuesday, 12.28.10 @ 22:48pm


Unless I'm mistaken, our Song Project has yet to induct a song by the Miracles... which is a shame especially as everyone always goes on about how bad it is that they are not in the Cleveland Hall... and we're now voting on late '60's songs already.

Posted by Darrin A on Wednesday, 12.29.10 @ 11:05am


Actually, only Bill G. goes on about how bad it is, at great length. I'm not saying they don't deserve it, but it's primarily one vocal fan.

It appears that the songs inducted in the Revisited Class of 1991 have not been added to the top of this page. Would it be possible to make that correction, in addition to the correction needed for adding albums at the top of the Album Project page for those albums inducted in the Revisited Class of 1991? This would be very much appreciated.

Well then, just before 2010 ends, I figured now would be the best time for me to announce my picks for the Song Project Revisited Class of 1992. As always, I will begin with the 25 modernized songs I have chosen to be inducted:

The Beatles - Eleanor Rigby
The Beatles - Yellow Submarine
The Beatles - Day Tripper
The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows
The Beatles - Paperback Writer
The Beatles - Rain
The Beatles - I Saw Her Standing There
The Beatles - Got To Get You Into My Life
The Beatles - Here, There, And Everywhere
The Beatles - I'm Only Sleeping
The Beatles - And Your Bird Can Sing
The Beatles - Drive My Car
The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations
The Beach Boys - God Only Knows
The Beach Boys - Wouldn't It Be Nice
The Beach Boys - Barbara Ann
The Beach Boys - Caroline, No
The Beach Boys - Don't Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder)
The Beach Boys - Help Me, Rhonda
The Beach Boys - I Just Wasn't Made For These Times
The Beach Boys - I Know There's An Answer
The Four Tops - Reach Out (I'll Be There)
Tina Turner - River Deep, Mountain High
The Zombies - Tell Her No
Stevie Wonder - Uptight (Everything's Alright)

And now, also as always, the 10 songs that are early influences prior to the rock era:

The Weavers - Kisses Sweeter Than Wine
The Carter Family - Keep On The Sunny Side
Blind Lemon Jefferson - See That My Grave Is Kept Clean
The Dominoes - Sixty Minute Man
The Orioles - It's Too Soon To Know
Louis Jordan - Choo Choo Ch'Boogie
Bill Haley - Rock The Joint
Nat "King" Cole - Straighten Up And Fly Right
Wynonie Harris - Good Rockin Tonight
Robert Johnson - Malted Milk

Well, there they are. I know that a proportion of the songs selected are from two important bands. Yet, "Pet Sounds" and releated Beach Boys albums, along with "Revolver", "Rubber Soul" and other Beatles albums shaped the soundtrack of 1966; at least in the ears of keen enthusiasts.

If we are to make a New Year resolution, let it be this: have the voting period of the remainder of this album and song project be lessened to perhaps 4 or 5 days. It seems to me that we know what albums and songs get inducted before the weekend. Plus, we can finish this project before the voting of the real Rock Hall for the Class of 2012.

Wondering what fellow posters think of this resolution,

Lax27

In order to make sure that it gets in its first year, as it should, I am going to switch the fallowing votes:

Gassman-

I've been thinking a lot about the potential for large ties in this project, and I've got an idea.

How would you feel about increasing the number of votes per person? We would not increase or decrease the number of inductees each year, but since we have so few voters right now, giving each of the voters more votes would be the best way to increase the total number of votes.

So, for example, each voter would have, say, 30 votes, but we would still only induct 25-28 songs per round.

We wouldn't mess with the Influences category.

And if you are worried about counting up all the votes, I have no problem helping with that.

Posted by DC on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 01:09am


I also wouldn't have a problem with shortening the voting periods, since I'm the one who is doing the song lists. I believe you extended the voting period to a week so that Donnie would have more time to do the lists, but that really isn't a problem anymore.

Posted by DC on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 01:11am


DC - I like the idea of giving people more votes than get inducted, we can do that in the next voting round. Also I would be willing to shorten the voting period to 5 days.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 11:47am


Sounds good, Gassman. How many votes should we do? 30?

Let me know and I'll post both rule changes when we open up the next round.

Posted by DC on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 11:51am


Yeah, lets start with 30 votes and see what happens, maybe we will edit it later if need be.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 12:12pm


Also do you think that you could do an album list for this week?

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 12:23pm


Yeah, I can do that. It may not be as complete as the last couple you did, but I'll do my best.

Posted by DC on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 14:31pm


Thanks, you don't need to worry about it being complete, 1967 is big enough that you shouldn't miss all of the highlights.

Remember that voting will open tomorrow (Monday) at 3 PM EST, and will close Saturday at 3 PM EST. You may now vote for up to 30 regular songs, and 10 influence songs.

I urge everyone to continue voting in the Influence category. We need more voters for that.

Posted by DC on Sunday, 01.2.11 @ 23:53pm


I'd like to add four songs to DC's list of 1967's songs (with ones I will be voting for that were not in his list... maybe other people will want to vote for them, who knows? :-) )

Keith West - "Excerpt From a Teenage Opera"
James Brown - "There Was a Time"
Kinks - "David Watts"
Dave Davies - "Death of a Clown"

Just saw "For Your Love" by the Yardbirds made it in last year, in that case replace it with:

Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels - Devil With a Blue Dress On/Good Golly Miss Molly (1966)

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 13:26pm


And on second thought, please replace Jimmy Reed's "Shame, Shame, Shame" with "Sloop John B" by the Beach Boys

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 13:31pm


Tahvo- We got For Your Love in last time, so you have one more vote.

Posted by DC on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 13:31pm


Oops, you got it already!

And nice choices for replacement songs. We need to get something in by Jimmy Reed eventually, but I just can't find the room right now.

Posted by DC on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 13:33pm


Regarding "Death of a Clown"... it was a solo single by Dave Davies (but also appears on Something Else album by the Kinks)

Wikipedia says: "Death of a Clown" is a song by Dave Davies, member of British rock group The Kinks, released as his debut solo single in 1967. The song is co-written with his brother Ray Davies.

Influence votes:

Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt 1953
All I Want For Christmas is my Two Front Teeth by Spike Jones 1948
Singin' in the Rain (1952) - Gene Kelly
Nature Boy (1948) - Nat King Cole
That’s Amore (1953) – Dean Martin
Indian Love Call (1952) - Slim Whitman
Malted Milk (1937) – Robert Johnson
California, Here I Come (1924) - Al Jolson
Are You Lonesome Tonight? (1950) - Al Jolson..... Yes, the song Elvis made famous.
My Mammy (1927) - Al Jolson

Interesting thing from Wikipedia:
Though associated with Al Jolson, who performed the song very successfully, "My Mammy" was performed first by William Frawley ("Fred Mertz" from I Love Lucy) as a vaudeville-style act during 1918. Jolson heard the song and performed it for the Broadway show Sinbad. Jolson recorded this song twice and performed it in films, including The Jazz Singer (1927), The Singing Fool (1928) and Rose of Washington Square (1939). The group The Happenings revived the song during 1967 with a recording that scored the top 20.

Lines include, "The sun shines east, the sun shines west, I know where the sun shines best" and "I'd walk a million miles For one of your smiles, My Mammy!"

Yeah, there doesn't seem to be much support for Jimmy Reed right now unfortunately so I figured "Sloop John B" has a much better shot, I already know a few songs on my ballot are probably not going to get more than just my vote this round, but there's not really a rush so we'll see what happens

Just a reminder that we're currently doing voting on the Rock Hall Projected page for the 45 Performers we inducted through the 2012 Ceremony that Cleveland so far has not. You rank them 1-45 and then that gets added to the comprehensive list. Once we get enough voters (say, about a dozen), I'll go from there to #100. I have a few ideas on how to get there and it should be fun.

We all need to come to some sort of consensus regarding Donovan and Nina Simone. Each year several songs of theirs get votes, but none get enough for induction.

Posted by DC on Thursday, 01.6.11 @ 05:14am


I think for Donovan we should get Universal Soldier in.

Posted by GFW on Thursday, 01.6.11 @ 10:01am


Regarding Donovan, I'm most in favour of getting Hurdy Gurdy Man in, eligible next year... but I would also like Sunshine Superman and Universal Soldier to get in. Not as in favour of Mellow Yellow, but would still vote for it if it had enough support. I'm a bit so-so on Catch the Wind too for one reason or another but, again, I'd still vote for it. Lots of other songs fall in that category... Top choice is next year's Hurdy Gurdy Man, tho.

In lieu of hopefully a shorter deadline to close the votes, I present the songs I have voted for the Revisited Class of 1993. This is an indication of the impact albums and FM radio had in how we, as listeners, came to appreciate the art form of rock music:

The Beatles - A Day In The Life
The Beatles - Strawberry Fields Forever
The Beatles - Penny Lane
The Beatles - I Am The Walrus
The Beatles - All You Need Is Love
The Beatles - With A Little Help From My Friends
The Beatles - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
The Beatles - Rain
The Beatles - Drive My Car
The Beatles - Here, There, And Everywhere
The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (both bookends)
The Beatles - Paperback Writer
The Beatles - Got To Get You Into My Life
The Beatles - Hello, Goodbye
The Beach Boys - Sloop John B
The Beach Boys - Caroline, No
The Beach Boys - Heroes And Villains
The Beach Boys - Help Me, Rhonda
Spencer Davis (and Steve Winwood) - Gimme Some Lovin
Traffic - Dear Mr. Fantasy
The Zombies - Tell Her No
Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade Of Pale
The Box Tops - The Letter
Wilson Pickett - Land Of 1000 Dances
Aretha Franklin - Chain Of Fools

And before I forget, the 10 songs in the early influence category that I have picked:

The Weavers - On Top Of Old Smokey
Roy Brown - Rockin At Midnight
Mahalia Jackson - Move Up A Little Higher
Louis Jordan - Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens
Louis Jordan - Let The Good Times Roll
Duke Ellington - Mood Indigo
Robert Johnson - Malted Milk
Louis Jordan - Saturday Night Fish Fry
Charlie Christian - Solo Flight
Elmore James - Dust My Broom

Well, there you have it. Again, this voting was mainly centered on artists I grew up listening and watching. I do hope this will not be counted against the voting totals.

Upset that "A Wider Shade Of Pale" gets truncated on every radio airplay,

A word on country music:

We need to keep our streak of inducting the worthy country songs, so here are my suggestions for our essential country songs we need to induct:

Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman (1968)
-#192 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
-Among Blender's greatest songs ever.
-Here is an excerpt from an article by Dylan Jones of the UK's The Independent: "If you ask me "Wichita Lineman" just might be the best song ever written. At the very least it's the first existential country song. As 1968 is currently being celebrated as the high-water mark of post-war cultural insurrection, it might seem perverse to lionise a middle-of-the-road ballad that harks back to a more innocent era, but Jimmy Webb's heartbreaking song was as evergreen then as it is now, and still seems to exist in a world of its own.

A dribble of bass, searing strings, tremolo guitar and one of the most plaintive vocals ever heard on record courtesy of Glen Campbell, Webb's paean to the American West describes the longing that a lonely telephone lineman feels for an absent lover who he imagines he can hear "singing in the wire" he's working on. Like all good love songs it's an SOS from the heart; there are even snatches of synthesizer-generated Morse Code heard after the lyric, "And the Wichita Lineman, is still on the line".

Bobbie Gentry - Ode To Billie Joe (1967)
-A dark and influential country-folk song, ranged #412 among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

I believe those two are the most important right now. Then we can move on to:
Loretta Lynn - Don't Come Home A-Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind) (1967)
-Loretta Lynn's first huge hit, and #47 among CMT's greatest Country Songs.

Glen Campbell - By The Time I Get To Phoenix (1967)
-Now a standard country and pop song, this was ranked #450 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time.

Tammy Wynette - Standy By Your Man (1968)
-Hugely influential and culturally significant, this one was named the greatest country song of all-time by CMT.

"A word on country music:"

To add to DC's post I recommend considering work by Merle Haggard. As both "Mama Tried" and "Sing Me Back Home" are eligible next year I'll try to vote for at least one of the two. Let's not forget Merle Haggard was together with Buck Owens one of the primary instigators of the Bakersfield Sound.

"Mama Tried" is widely considered to be one of the signature songs of Merle Haggard, his fifth number one, it would later be covered by the Grateful Dead, Joan Baez and and the Everly Brothers.

I agree with GFW that we should try to get at least one Velvet Underground song in. Heroin would be the best one to represent the band.

Posted by Gassman on Saturday, 01.8.11 @ 18:19pm


I hope you mean at least one this round. Before this project is over we need to induct a few songs by the Velvet Underground.

There is plenty of time, and it's never too late to induct a song. I hope everyone is keeping track of their backlogs.

ahvo P, Runaway by Del Shannon is already in...

Posted by Darrin A on Sunday, 01.9.11 @ 10:57am

My mistake, replace it with "(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding (1968) then

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Sunday, 01.9.11 @ 12:13pm


GFW - Personally Here Are The Velvet Underground Songs That Should Be Considered:

Heroin
Sweet Jane
Venus In Furs
Waiting For The Man
White Light/White Heat

Also here are some artist that we inducted into Revisited/Projected have yet to induct a song from that should be at least considered:

Solomon Burke
Johnny Burnette & The Rock 'n' Roll Trio
Donavon
Marvin Gaye
B.B. King
Little Antony & The Imperials
Love
Clyde McPhatter
The Miracles
Pink Floyd
Gene Pitney
Otis Redding
Sam And Dave
Traffic
The Velvet Underground
Mary Wells
Stevie Wonder

No I am not saying that we need to get songs in from these acts right now or that that I will vote for songs from these acts just because we inducted them. I am just putting this out for consideration.

My recommendations from Gassman's list:

Solomon Burke - "Cry to Me"
I've voted for this song for a few classes as of now and have so far been the only one. IMO, it will be a big tragedy if we pass over the legendary Solomon Burke. They don't call Burke "the Bishop of Soul" for nothing. If you're still not convinced listen to "Cry to Me" on YouTube.

Johnny Burnette & The Rock 'n Roll Trio:
"Train Kept a Rollin" (As fine a rockabilly piece as there ever was, later covered by the Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, Aerosmith and Metallica)
Or if you're focusing on Johnny's solo output, try "You're Sixteen" or "Dreamin" both classics.

Donovan:
"Hurdy Gurdy Man," "Sunshine Superman" or "Mellow Yellow" to name a few should all be at least considered by everyone, IMO.

Marvin Gaye:
Do I even need to elaborate on this?

B.B. King:
What?! We haven't gotten "Thrill Is Gone" in yet? I'm voting for it starting next year and every year until it gets in.

Little Anthony & The Imperials:
Getting at least "Tears on My Pillow" in would be a solid choice.

Love:
"7 and 7 Is" or "Alone Again Or"

Clyde McPhatter:
Anyone wanna help me out with this one?

The Miracles:
We haven't gotten "Tears of a Clown" or "I Second That Emotion" in yet?

Pink Floyd:
We've only just reached their early years of eligibility so of what currently is eligible "See Emily Play" and "Arnold Layne" would be your best bet.

Gene Pitney:
Try "Half Heaven, Half Heartache," "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" (a true classic) and "A Town Without Pity"

Otis Redding:
No love for "The Dock of the Bay?"

Sam and Dave:
"Hold On, I'm Coming" and "Soul Man" would probably have the best shot here. Though "I Thank You" is worth considering as well.

Traffic:
3 words: "Dear Mr. Fantasy."

The Velvet Underground:
I'm currently pulling for "Heroin" and have considered "Sweet Jane" as well. Check out Gassman's picks too.

Mary Wells:
Do I even need to mention "My Guy" as an essential pick?

Stevie Wonder:
Again, I'm not convinced the body of voters here need help with this one.

There you have it folks, some food for thought. Happy voting.

Tahvo-

This may surprise you, but The Thrill Is Gone was released in 1969. So you can (and should) vote for it next year, but it hasn't been snubbed.

We've still got a long way to go on the 50s and 60s, and we will likely be inducting songs from those two decades throughout the rest of the project. But considering the importance of these early years, that's as it should be. Again, I hope everyone is keeping track of their backlogs because we need to dig a bit deeper into jazz, folk and country, in addition to all of the worthy pop and rock songs we haven't inducted yet.

A great deal of songs have been rightfully inducted so far. Yet, there are so many more that deserve recognition. In doing my part of the voting, I present the 25 songs I have included for induction into the Revisited Class of 1994. Again, these are personal preferences of mine.

The Beatles - Hey Jude
The Beatles - Revolution (both versions)

While I am a fan of of many different types of music, I would have to say that old school Heavy Metal / Hard Rock (70's-80's) is my favorite. Those would include bands/artists like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Metallica, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, etc. That is why I am going to have to make an personal appeal for "Helter Skelter" by The Beatles. IMO, this is one of the first Heavy Metal songs or it is at least a song that is extremely influential for the genre. Also I think it is a great example on how good the White Album is! The Beatles were able to changes genres in that album from psychedelia, to surf rock, to folk rock, soft rock, proto-punk and proto-metal. Just shows the diversity in the type of music they were coming out with.

What are the rules for wanting to change a vote as I know it's fairly late in this particular class but I want to replace my Early Influence vote for "Smoke, Smoke, Smoke (That Cigarette)" with "Wimoweh" by the Weavers (1951). If I can't it's not a big deal, I'll just wait a few days until voting for the next class rolls around (assuming "Wimoweh" doesn't get in this class, though I have no idea how many votes it currently has)

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 10:57am


Tahvo - I really don't care as much about changing votes for this like I did for the revisited/projected project as long as there is no abuses of the ability to change votes.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 11:48am


OK, in that case, I'll confirm switching those two, also, good call on Helter Skelter, I'll put it on my ballot for next year

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 12:01pm


Gassman-

Speaking of influences, have you decided whether or not our next round (the tenth) will be the last for the Influences category?

Posted by DC on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 13:11pm


DC - I think so, we are getting to the point were only a few people are voting and I think the overall quailty of the songs isn't the same as it was in the beginning (not saying there isn't great songs out there still, just saying that overall it isn't as good).

What does everyone else think?

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 13:27pm


I'm ok with ending the influence songs after the next round.

Posted by Greg F. on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 14:48pm


I'd also be fine with the next round being the final round for early influences

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 14:54pm


I did not know we could add five more songs. Well, best to use this opportunity to add five more of my picks for the Revisited Class of 2011. Here they are in no particular order.

The Beatles - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
The Beach Boys - Heroes And Villains
The Who - I Can See For Miles
Glen Campbell - Witchita Lineman
Marvin Gaye - I Heard It Through The Grapevine

In addition, I agree with fellow posters in that the early influence category should continue for one more vote, and then call it a day. You can already notice the straw grasping I had taken in finding suitable early influence songs to be inducted. Any further than next voting, we might be including classical-era chamber music, and operatic theater. I would like for that to happen; yet it is not rock per se.

Quality over quantity works best,

Two notes before we start voting on songs tomorrow:

1) We should wait on voting on "Whipping Post" by The Allman Brothers Band until 1971 when the epic live track was released off of From Filmore East. That to me is the quintessential version of the song and what I believe should be represented in our Hall of Fame.

2) I would also like to put for the track "Dark Star" by the Grateful Dead off of their Live/Dead album that was released in 1969 for consideration. This is possibly the first Jam Rock song and it was influential to their own sound and to many Jam Bands that would come after them (Phish, DMB and even to The Allman Brother Band's Whipping Post track I recommend above). Also it would be cool for us to induct a song that is over 20 minutes long. Would vary thing up a bit :)

I added up the Early Influences in order to make my decisions there. Is anyone doing updates on those anymore?

I approve of the motion to close the Early Influences part after next round. Although I disagree that the selections are getting weaker...I just think that we need to limit it at some point in order to make it a true Hall of Fame. Perhaps we can come back to the Early Influences section at another time.

Posted by Tennison on Thursday, 01.13.11 @ 12:41pm


Since it looks like we're about to induct Edith Piaf's "La Vie En Rose" into the early influence category I was wondering what other people think about inducting other none-English songs that had an impact in the English speaking world? The song I specifically had in mind was Kyu Sakomoto's "Ue wo Muite Aruko" (aka "Sukiyaki"). The song was released in Japan in 1961 but in 1963 in the US and UK. Let's not forget it was a none-English song that reached #1 on the US Billboard charts in 1963. Pretty impressive. Any thoughts?

Kinda sad to see the Doors' "The End" sliding away. It'd be great to see it get a revisit and a push when we get to 1979, the year "Apocalypse Now" was released.

Some Thoughts:

1) Considering this may be our best chance to induct "Waterloo Sunset" by The Kinks, I feel like I need to help push it over the finish line.

- Labeled the "Greatest Song About London" and "Anthem Of London"

- Pete Townshend has called it "divine"

- Rolling Stone named it the #42nd greatest song off all time

- I personally feel that it is The Kinks best song or at least their most beautiful

2) I like the fact that we are getting at least one older song inducted each year. I hope that this year it will be "Boom Boom" by John Lee Hooker!

3) Looks like no one else took my advice on "Dark Star" by Grateful Dead. Too bad, but we better get a song by them in next year!

Here are some suggestions:

Box of Rain
Casey Jones
Friend Of The Devil
Sugar Magnolia
Truckin' (If we had to pick one, this would be it)
Uncle John's Band

Posted by DC on Friday, 01.14.11 @ 23:45pm

To put it simply, I made a few mistakes in my voting update, it's a good thing other people double-check. You'll also notice I had MC5's song labeled as "Kick out the James...." I'm not sure who "the James" is, but I'm sure he wouldn't be very pleased upon learning somebody wanted to kick him out.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Saturday, 01.15.11 @ 03:04am


Tahvo- Haha, I'm not gonna lie, I laughed pretty hard at "Kick Out The James."

Gassman- I have a pretty strong attachment to "Uncle John's Band," and it will be on my ballot until it is inducted.

Also, I just realized "Fire And Rain" by James Taylor will be eligible next year. If we get one song by him in, it'd better be that one.

woah, how could I forget about "Spirit in the Sky?" I'll definitely be voting for it next year.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Saturday, 01.15.11 @ 04:32am


I have a question for everyone. Someone asked me the other day what my favorite songs were, and one of the ones I kept coming back to was "Sister Golden Hair" by America (1975). It has one of the most recognizable intros, and it really never gets old despite its radio presence. A perfect folk-rock song, in my opinion.

My question for you all is, is it HoF-worthy once it is eligible?

Posted by DC on Saturday, 01.15.11 @ 05:02am

Just a note, Harry Nilsson's last name (and occasional stage name) was in fact, spelled just like that, Nilsson ;)

"woah, how could I forget about "Spirit in the Sky?" I'll definitely be voting for it next year."

I had the same thought when I saw Darrin A's ballot. It'll get my vote next year, too.

Also, one quick note about the latest tally, The Walker Brothers' "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" is listed at both 2 and 1 votes, when it actually has three.

Kinda surprised that Faron Young's "Hello Walls" (1961), one of the ultimate staples of '60s Country, and arguably Willie Nelson's first major break as a songwriter, hasn't been inducted. I'll be getting behind it next year.

Posted by DarinRG on Saturday, 01.15.11 @ 19:09pm


Since it looks like it may fall short again this year, can we please try and get "Ruby Tuesday" in by next year?

Also, is anybody keeping track of the Influence votes? And the Early Influence inductees from our previous class still need to be added to the top of the page.

Just to let everybody know, the song "Little Green Bag" by George Baker Selection was eligible this year but from the looks of it nobody else either knew it was eligible (like me, only found out a few minutes ago) or bothered to vote for it. I'll be voting for it next year and encourage anybody unfamiliar with it to check it out on YouTube

Here's the song for your convenience:

Since were all plugging songs I'd reccomend people give Cold Turkey by the Plastic Ono Band a chance. It was voted by guitar world to be among the 100 greatest guitar tracks ever.

On this Sunday, where many of us are watching the American football playoffs, it might seem understandable if there is minimal participation. Never the less, I now bring you fellow posters the songs I have picked for the Revisited Class of 1995. The end of one decade, and the beginnings for another era. Here they are in no particular order:

The Beatles - Come Together
The Beatles - Something
The Beatles - Here, There, And Everywhere
The Beatles - Helter Skelter
The Beatles - The Ballad Of John And Yoko
The Beatles - Revolution (both versions)
The Beatles - With A Little help From My Friends
The Beatles - Paperback Writer
The Beatles - Here Comes The Sun
Crosby, Stills, And Nash - Suite: Judy Blue Eyes
Deep Purple - Hush
John Lennon - Cold Turkey
Can - You Doo Right
Neil Young - Cinnamon Girl
The Beach Boys - Heroes And Villains
David Bowie - Space Oddity
Nina Simone - See-Line Woman
Nina Simone - Sinnerman
Donovan - Mellow Yellow
Donovan - Hurdy Gurdy Man
Traffic - Feelin Alright
Wilson Pickett - Land Of 1000 Dances
The Zombies - Tell Her No
Scott Walker - The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore
MC5 - Kick Out The Jams
The Jackson 5 - I Want You Back
Mike Smith/Rick Huxley/The Dave Clark Five - Catch Us If You Can
Elvis Presley - Suspicious Minds
Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now
Cream - White Room

I am not going to add any early influences, considering none were inducted in the previous election. In addition, I am rather tapped out in early influence songs: unless we consider classical music. Maybe early jazz and ragtime. Apart from that, I just do not know.

In any case, those are the songs I have picked. There could probably bee a bunch more from that era (namely, anything Beatles or John Lennon), but these 30 will do for now.

J.E.T.S= just end the season!,

While I totally believe that both "Paranoid" and "Iron Man" should be songs we induct by Black Sabbath, I would also like to declare my strong support for "Black Sabbath" off their first album Black Sabbath.

This is what a reviewer on Sputnikmuisc said about the song "Black Sabbath:"

"The heavy metal blueprint arrived with Black Sabbath - the band, the album, and the song.

Ah, the song. I know there are 7 other tracks here for me to be discussing, but to be honest, I'd like to spend the entire review talking about just that one. Even now, it's the quintessential heavy metal track - everything about it is iconic, from the thunderstorm and tolling bell at the beginning, through the slow, simple and yet oh-so-ominous guitar of Iommi and the sporadic drumming which seems to be all that's driving such a song along, to Ozzy's awesome vocal performance. Now, Ozzy clearly isn't the most talented singer out there (he won't be winning awards for skill), but could anyone else have fit this song so well? Could anyone else have managed to sound just this side of terrified, and yet remain cool? And could anyone else have pulled off overly dramatic lines like "Oh, no, no, please God help me!" without sounding ridiculous? Hell no. What his voice lacks in technique, it more than makes up in being memorable and characterful, the latter in particular being something that many otherwise great vocalists lack. He has imperfections - for example, when he attempts a note that is really too low for him to be comfortable in - but they come to be what you love as much as his good points. It's a strange thing, but it's what I've found, and it's why I think Ozzy really is a good vocalist, despite the disagreement such a statement is bound to bring. Now, can you imagine what this song would have sounded like in 1970? It's pretty much the antithesis of everything the flower power music of the sixties stood for, musically and lyrically, and it's release being when it was, (February 1970 - and a black Friday, if legend is to be believed) could be seen to make it almost prophetic."

Because I can see it being left behind, I want everyone to remember that "We've Only Just Begun" by The Carpenters was named to Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All-Time, and VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Rock & Roll. It is not only one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded, it is THE defining song of 70s soft rock. It is essential that we induct it.
