I'll take charge of it if people want to get it going.

Probably a 32 or 64 bracket. We all know the rules, don't nominate too many things at once, let others get votes in. And any songs that are disputed are subject to being removed.

if this takes off I'll set it up

...dude...cut that down and let a few others get in first

I'm adding "Stand By Me" by Ben E. King

The Rolling Stones - Street Fighting Man
The Sonics - The Witch and Psycho
Henry Spencer

I'll limit myself to three

The Four Tops- "Reach Out, I'll Be There"

Donovan- "Hurdy Gurdy Man"

One of these things is not like the others.
Youth N Asia
speaking of Donovan I'm adding

I picked 16 songs out of a list of 500 songs of the top 50 for each year. Fuck it.
Copper Feel
Led Zeppelin - 'Dazed and Confused'
The Beatles - 'Hello Goodbye'
The Rolling Stones - 'Monkey Man'

On Monday I'll go through and start getting things in order. Figured that'll give enough time to add more
SuperJerk
A few obvious picks:

Hey Jude-The Beatles
A Day in the Life-The Beatles
Gimme Shelter-Rolling Stones
Good Vibrations-Beach Boys
Reflections-The Supremes
Suite/Judy Blue Eyes-Crosby, Stills, and Nash
All Along the Watchtower-Bob Dylan
Like a Rolling Stone-Bob Dylan
RHR
For What It's Worth-Buffalo Springfield
Smues
Build me up Buttercup - The Foundations
PILLS! PILLS! PILLS!
I think Brody forgot Orbision's best, so I will include it in my short list of suggestions:

"Crying" (Roy Orbison)
"Come See About Me" (The Supremes)
"Respect" (Aretha Franklin)
"Unchain My Heart" (Ray Charles)
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell)
"My Generation" (The Who)

Jumpin Jack Flash- The Rolling Stones
Whiter Shade of Pale- Procol Harum
Mecha Mummy
"The Witch" by The Sonics
Richard
8 Miles High - the Byrds
Henry Spencer
I already nominated that one. And since the subject of Roy Orbison's best song has been brought up, I will also nominate:

Roy Orbison - In Dreams
Henry Spencer
By "that one", I was referring to The Witch.
Richard
Spanish Flea - Herb Alpert
PILLS! PILLS! PILLS!

Makes me think of Beverly Hills Cop II.
Tzar Lysergic
21st Century Schizoid Man-King Crimson
Copper Feel
Bob Dylan -

'Masters of War'
'The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll'
'Mr. Tambourine Man'
'Queen Jane Approximately'
'Visions of Johanna'
'I Am a Lonesome Hobo'

One per album, but I'm ignoring the self-titled debut and Nashville Skyline because they're subpar.

King Kamala
The Beach Boys- "Don't Worry Baby"

The Zombies- "She's Not There" and/or "Time of The Season"

Wilson Pickett- "In The Midnight Hour"
Star Ocean 3

Last one I swear

David Bowie- "Space Oddity"
C*Z*E*C*H

The McCoys - Hang On Sloopy
Booker T. and the MGs - Green Onions
Blood, Sweat, & Tears - God Bless the Child

I'm excited for this. Casual recommendation for YNA: one per artist?
Tzar Lysergic
So, play-in rounds for Dylan and The Beatles?


Eight Days a Week, by the way.
King Kamala
Yeah, I think it should be narrowed down to a one a piece with play-in rounds determining which song gets in for the heavyweights (Beatles, Stones, Dylan, Beach Boys,etc.)
BruteSquad_BRODY
Elvis and Orbison, The Supremes, The Doors etc are all gonna need play in rounds

You missed Another Side of..., so I'll go ahead and nominate "It Ain't Me Babe."


Also:

Desmond Dekker - "Israelites"
The Shangri Las - "Out in the Streets"
Francoisie Hardy - "Tous Les Garcons et Les Filles"
Mecha Mummy
Since I unwittingly only seconded "The Witch" (which is awesome since I didn't think anyone else would nominate it), I'll nominate "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding instead.
BruteSquad_BRODY
Down In The Boondocks- Billy Joe Royal
Kimaster1976
The Small Faces - Itchycoo Park
Humble Pie - Natural Born Boogie
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Purple Haze
Cream - Sunshine Of Your Love

Alright, by tonight I'm going to try and have this in order or on its way to getting started.

thanks for the songs
