UPDATE: Added SJ's nomination. Completely forgot. My bad. Please re-vote if necessary!

And now, the vote!

For those of you who didn't play the first time back in September, I've already held the nominations for song lyrics for the Lyrical Challenge. Some of you nominated one lyric while others picked multiple. What I did the last time and will do again, is pick one song lyric from each person myself then I'll post them all below and you guys will pick your favorites of the bunch.

Depending on how the voting goes, I will pick the top several although I'm not yet sure how many that will be. I'll kinda make that up as I go along. Hey! It's my site, I can do that, right? If there are some I really like that don't get the votes, I may just do them down the line sometime anyway for kicks.

What I'd like you to do is pick two lyrics each from those listed below. Put your favorite first and then your second favorite after that. When I tally up the totals, I will give a more heavily weighted score to the first one chosen so please make sure you put them in order with your favorite first. If you tell me, "1. Dagny / 2. August," then Dagny's song will get two votes while August's song gets one.

Here are my favorite nominated songs from each person...

"I hear something there in the shadow down the hall..." - Concrete Blonde, "Bloodletting"

"Tell you to pray, while the devil's on their shoulder"  - Pearl Jam, "World Wide Suicide"

"I feel so foolish, I never noticed" - Bonnie Raitt, "Something To Talk About"

"I have no fear of falling, but I hate hitting the ground" - The Badlees, "Fear of Falling"

"If you want me I'll be in the bar" - Joni Mitchell, "A Case Of You"

The Exception:
"Sometimes I think about what might have been" - Little Texas, "What Might Have Been"

"Baby got back" - Sir Mix-A-Lot, "Baby Got Back"

"If I had your faith that I could make it safe and clean" - The Cure, "Head on the Door"

"I'll never be untrue"  - Al Green, "Let's Stay Together"

"She's got the Jack" AC/DC, "The Jack"

"I don't do love, I don't do women named Hannah, I don't do red head girls from Lousiana" - Old 97s, "Coahuila"

"You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death" - Modest Mouse, "Ocean Breathes Salty"

"There's bloodstains on my ax and I don't know where I've been" - Megadeth, "Sweating Bullets"

Go ahead and tell me your top choices. Remember, only pick two each. Sometime next week, I will post the winners and come up with a posting schedule.

Have a great weekend!

Ooohhh! You picked my favorite of the ones I gave you, so of course that's my first choice. Second choice for me is much tougher. I think I'd like to see what you do with metalmom's line. Have fun!


LMAO!!I pick Odie's and Mine!! And that was before I saw the comment!

SJ, of course you do! I slipped because you posted your nominations in the wrong post and I missed them even though I knew I needed to look for them. It was too early when I posted this. Sorry! Seriously!

1. Bec
2. MetalMom
