Yeah, I know I could have used the poll function for this week's choices, but it seems the method is working pretty good and it keeps the thread bounced to the top. So:

This is for public vote of the best song from the week, but because the polling system on these forums is limited to ten entries we are going to be forced to do this manually. Only songs listed on Noble’s “RBN New Release Thread” will be included.

1) Copy the songs from the previous post and, if necessary, add the song you want to vote for to your post.

2) Delete the notation from the previous poster that shows which song they added “1” to, signifying which song they voted for.

3) At the end of the song title: Add a “+1” showing which song you’re voting for. Add or change to total count after and “=” sign to show the total amount of votes that song has received.

4) Reorder the songs that have received a vote in order by the total number of votes received. And then by Artist Name for those who have the same number of votes.

Example:

Post #2 (first post will be a list of songs, person replying will add their choice and put “1” out from it)
Bif Naked – Sick +1 = 1
Post #3 (copies previous post, deleted previous poster’s “+1” and adds their own choice)
Bif Naked – Sick = 1
Dear and the Headlights - Talk About +1= 1
Post #4 (copies previous post, and since this person agrees with the author of the third post just adds “1” to the total. Then the person will rearrange list to put highest number at the top)
Dear and the Headlights - Talk About +1 = 2
Bif Naked – Sick = 1
Post #5 (Adds another new song. Since this song will have one vote and is alphabetically higher than the song already listed it is placed in the middle)

Dear and the Headlights - Talk About = 2
Amberian Dawn - He Sleeps in a Grove +1 = 1
Bif Naked – Sick = 1
Please vote for one song only

"Undone" - All That Remains
"Beautiful" - Andy Kirk
"Plans & Reveries" - Black Gold
"Delaware Are You? I Don't Know Alaska." - Safari So Good
"American Dream" - Silverstein
"Exploited & Exposed" - Symbion Project
"Dogs Can Grow Beards All Over" - The Devil Wears Prada
"Dead to the World" - The Fire Violets
"Homeward Bound" - Tumbledown

    By the way... I will not be in town next monday so the poll for the best song of the month and the poll for the first week of May songs will be a little late.

    Because the majority agree it was the best song of the week? or that it's a great guitar song? or just a great song overall????

    Shame not enough people played this song or maybe there aren't that many drummers on here.

    It was annoying on drums, and from what I have read before it is kind of like Sin Wagon but not even as good on guitar, so why vote for it if it's nothing special?

    Because your assertion that it's "nothing special" is just your personal opinion. Obviously people disagree.

    It boils down to the quality of RB songs being subjective and not objective. People are allowed to like playing a song with repetitive and mundane charts because they love the music. People are allowed to like playing a song with amazingly diverse charts and awful sounding music solely because they love the challenging gameplay. People are allowed to like playing a country song because they like country music. People who have never played Sin Wagon are allowed to like playing a song because they think the guitar is fun. People who have played Sin Wagon are still allowed to like playing a song because they think the guitar is fun.

    You may not get why other people like a given song, and various people may have wildly different reasons for liking a song, but you don't have to look at them like they're crazy for their opinion.

    I'd say it's more enjoyable than Sin Wagon.

    Also, opinion is opinion.

    i believe the comments on tumbledown referred to it being not as hard as sin wagon, noone mentioned it wasn't as good.

    lets face it, numbers tell the tale, we'll see at the end of the week whether people think its any good or not.

    I have to admit, I didn't expect Homeward Bound to be in the lead, but I also have to say I like it.

    Since starting this series of polls I have purchased two songs three songs I would have skipped, but because of the people voting I gave them a second chance and found them very enjoyable.
