Lot of great songs nominated in the general vote that I would support in the future, but like I stated earlier, I'm dedicating this month to Prince as I want as many Prince songs to be inducted this month as possible.

  The facts don't lie....

The main reason why the Monkees are not in Hall of Fame is Jann Wenner personal snubbing is point blank.

The nomination committee consists of corporate music executives and music critics who always been pain in ass of every performer from Elvis to Beyoncé. They do not listen to no criticism that performers and inductees should have a vote every year of their own peers to be inducted. The Monkees should already be inducted by a special committee of historical basis instead of closed secret group. They were the precursor of pre fabricated musical groups of the 80's such as The New Kids on The Block and N'Sync.

  To be honest, I thought 'Anthem of the Sun' was a shoe-in for induction for the artist vote, especially since it was involved in a general vote tiebreaker. I'm floored too that it received the second least amount of votes in the Artist Vote. I guess stranger things have happened in these projects before, but this ranks high up there. I'd support 'Anthem of the Sun' if nominated again, once it's eligible again, in a heartbeat.

That's the point I was trying to make before: unless we know every song that has ever lost a tiebreaker throughout the years, I don't know how this genre would be possible. Does FRL archive that far back? Personally, that seems like a lot of work although I still like the notion of a "songs that lost a tiebreaker" genre.

  BSLO - I completely spaced on the artist votes this month, but if you nominate Anthem of the Sun again in the future remind us about what you just said. The Grateful Dead have never been one of my stronger areas, but I like looking into albums that other voters feel strongly about as snubs. I've even become a fan of quite a few of them.

On a side note, I have to say that I'm really disappointed in the lack of support for Anthem of the Sun last round. It's one of the best psychedelic albums that we haven't inducted, and in my opinion the most historically important Grateful Dead album that hasn't been inducted.

I am kind of dumbfounded that it only finished 8th in the artist album vote when it's probably one of our biggest snubs regardless of genre from the late 60's. And this was after it just barely missed getting inducted in the regular album project. Now it can't be nominated for 6 months...very frustrating.

About The Marvelettes, Erayman64 wrote:
  This oversight needs to be discussed by the committee.

They should been inducted since the Hall been created back in the 80's. They were hit makers at Motown and competed with Hall of Famers The Vandellas. The Supremes where the scrubs at Hitsville USA that couldn't get the song that would put them on top until the Marvelettes turn down a song they didn't like they believe it was not R&B enough with "baby, baby" singing in the background.

That song was "Where Did Our Love Go" that the Supremes took and blew away the competition of the Vandellas,Marvelettes, and Mary Wells at Motown.

  Artist nominee:

Leonard Cohen

I was surprised to see a couple months ago that he only has three songs inducted which seems a bit light considering that he was inducted into both the RRHoF and Rock hall Revisited largely on the strength of his songs.

I'll skip song nominees this month. Between a lengthy and extraordinarily strong auto eligible list and a good selection of Prince songs to choose one, maybe...MAYBE two votes from my ballot's already full and I see five or six other nominees that'll be strong contenders for ballot space.

About the 2016 Inductees, Ben wrote:
  Nick,

That is a good list of deserved artists. Due to the firing of 14 people on that Committee mostly earlier artists like Mary Wells and the Marvelettes will the least chance. Its like you said VAn Zant and Marsh are still on the committee. Also there is Jann Wenner and Paul Schaefer involved still. So certainly Joe Cocker, The Meters and The Zombies still have a good shot. I know Van Zant is a Zombies fan and has gotten them nominated before. Perhaps Joe Tex and some others. I would think Somehow the Moody Blues will get nominated. They are harder with VAn Zant and others due to their prog thing. I love them. Ive said that many times. Great list of 60s Nick.

  It is almost impossible to leave the shadow of The Jackson's and then Michael. She did that in a huge way. Her music and influence is far-reaching...and will be for a long time. It is laughable that the public has to appeal to you for something that is common sense.

Holy crap guys I just realized something: where’s Kid A? Smashing Pumpkins got two albums qualified but Radiohead only got one? Kid A could probably make the top 20. But other than that and the lack of Zappa, this is shaping up to be a great list. These 30 were really tough to decide and rank.
