Decades Feeder Bracket - Wild Card 60s Week 6 Round of 16
« on: February 19, 2018, 07:23:02 PM »
As you may have noticed throughout the Wild Card process, I kept some songs back from the yearly Feeders to use here.  Most of the time it was because I just had too many songs to use from that band that year.  But, occasionally, I would put forth a lesser, but still popular song, from that same band so I could use the better one here.  And now we've come to the end.  This is the last Bracket of new songs to vote on.  I thank you for every one who voted, whether it was once, or never missed a one or anywhere in between.  Thank you.  Hope you enjoy what I picked!  Have at!!


The 1/16





The 8/9





The 5/12





The 4/13





The 6/11





The 3/14





The 7/10





The 2/15

Should expect such cruelty from a Alabama/NY Yankee fan.

Yep, Steelie, I agree. I have a few definite favourites there, but still some difficult choices.

My pleasure :) :)

Glad you both like.  I know a lot of 60s music and it pains me a little when the 60s Brackets get so few votes.  I still have about ten pages of unused songs from the 60s.  A lot of it is not as well known nowadays and I never know what kind of influence music had on the members who vote.  B_C, by his own admission, doesn't know a lot of popular songs even from the time he was growing up, so, how can I expect everyone to be on the same page?  But I'm super glad you fellas liked what I put together here.  I thought it was pretty difficult to choose a winner for most of these matches.

I always liked Sweet Caroline, but lately it's become one of my favorites.  My daughters are around 30 years old, and go to a lot of weddings of their girl friends from high school and college.  If we knew the bride well when she was young and was a good friend of my daughter, my wife and I get invited.  These weddings are fun to go to.  The kids (the 20 somethings and 30 somethings) are having a good time, and so are the parents (my generation of 50 somethings and 60 somethings).  The moms (mine and my wife's generation) especially like to do some some shots and dance.  Usually about 11pm, the band or DJ will play Sweet Caroline, and all the ladies, who are by now a bit beyond tipsy, get out on the dance floor and have a great old time, especially when the chorus comes on.

I would love that song unequivocally except for one thing, the Red Sox have adopted it as their song.  That just ruins it for me  :(

Who do you pull for in footy?  Now imagine 'Sweet Caroline,' as the song of their rival.

I know, it's painful  :hide: I wasn't having a go at you for not liking the song. Just saying that I like it and think it's catchy. I'm sure if Man City were chanting it at Man U, I'd feel differently  :-"  O0

A few years ago, the high school kids would sing Sweet Caroline at the end of the 3rd quarter of basketball games.

It seems like sports fans really like this song! I bet Neil Diamond wishes he could get royalties for everytime sweet Caroline gets sung at sporting events  ;D
