Voted and predicted Great Big. Love Lake\'s cult status keeps it close. There\'s several soon-to-be-first-round-losers that I would have voted over Great Big.

#3 for GBFBITS is disrespectful to #4 The Chase and #5 Score.  Plenty of underdogs (#9-16) that would beat Great Big in my book.

This show of disrespect requires explanation!

Drew,

Are you hinting at "who the hell picked these rankings"?
Love many, trust few and don\'t be late.

Great Big\'s three seed is almost as bad as UConn getting the two spot in this year\'s NCAA

More of a kind-hearted "I disagree on many accounts with whomever picked these rankings\'.

I don\'t know how these selections were made, but, I can understand your compliant. Not that I am bitching because the selection process must have been a grueling process!

GBFBiTS...as Gencs said this song makes me feel something special is coming everytime I hear it begin.

That said Love Lake **NEEDS** to come back...Space you are right, Animal said that is one of the most requested songs out on the road but they haven\'t played it in so long that they aren\'t comfortable with it...I say get it back soon.

People, stop confirming your own statement.  It is dumb.  The only thing you are confirming is your ineptitude in understanding the concept of confirmation.  Confirmation is when a second party agrees that an idea is true.  If you agree with somebody else\'s idea and you want to sound trendy, then quote them and just write "confirmed."  But don\'t confirm yourself.

While I happen to agree in this particular instance, the bottom line is that we could have had a 10,000 post "How To Seed the Songs" thread and solved nothing.  Once you get past the 1\'s, 2\'s, 15\'s, and 16\'s, you\'ve got 48 songs that each could outplay the other 47 on a good night.  The selection committee was in the war room for hours, and though it ultimately became a dictatorship, that was probably the best way to do it.  We thought about coming up with an SCS (Song Championship Series) formula to rate the songs, in which case we would have just announced what the best songs are.  (Marcial would\'ve loved it.)  The fan poll would have counted 25%, but ultimately you wouldn\'t have had nearly as much fun as you are now.  (The Wolfman rankings were going to count 15%...eat your heart out Jeff Sagarin.)  So just enjoy it and let the games be played on the field.
