I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Mine was awesome, and I'm still out of town for a few more days. I'm kind of missing my bed and the woman who sleeps next to me there, since she didn't have the vacation time in order to come with me, but all in all it has been good. The results from part 1 are in. Here are your 1st 8 "winners".
Group A: She's Like the Wind dominated this group and moves on easily while Candyman was barely eliminated by Run Joey Run. That would've been a big upset IMO since I expected Run Joey Run to walk away with this one. My guess is a lot of you don't know Run Joey all that well. Photograph escaped the competition without much trouble.
Group B: This one was very clear cut. Sundown and Candle in the Wind were clobbered by Cha-Cha Slide and True, with True leading the way. No surprises as far as I'm concerned. I didn't really want to include Sundown in the first place, but it is one of the wife's least favorite songs, and well, she's my wife.
Group C: No major surprises here either other than this... You guys really hate Celine Dion. My guess is that if there were a lot of ladies voting, My Heart Will Go On would have been eliminated, but instead, it was the leading vote-getter from this group. Joining Celine will be the Baja Men with Who Let the Dogs Out. Cars and Hanging Tough escape- Cars easily, and Hanging Tough by only 1 vote.
Goup D: Wake me up Before you Go-Go is out by a large margin. Quite a surprise for such a crappy song, but as many said, this may have been the worst group from part 1. How am I Supposed to Live Without You, by that ass-clown Michael Bolton is moving forward. We have our fist tie and my first voting opportunity in this group. Only 1 vote separated these two "jewels" from Bolton and first place, and it's a very tough decision for me. Clay Aiken's Invisible, or The Spice Girls with Wannabe. After much deliberation (I actually listened to both on youtube) I have chosen this because of the stellar lyric, repeated at least 3 or 4 times, of "I wanna really really really wanna zigazag ahh". Wannabe will go forward.

Round 1 part 2 is still open and a lot of people who voted in part 1 have still not voted at this point. Also, be sure to check out the blogs by LazerWright, Section_725, and BuccinGator... and anyone else who votes regularly here (I see Lennon and RobToxin have blogs I need to check out as well).
