Too funny the timing of this thread.

I heard "The Way" by Fastball this morning and I thought whatever happened to them.

Some good ones on this list !

CARS (Gary Newman) - TSOP (MFSB) were a couple of songs I had on
my original list last night, but I took them off this morning for a couple
of other songs.

I suggested a 32 song Tournament, but we might even have to expand
this thing to 48 or 64. before it's all said and done.

:lol:

Thank you sir!

I had Survivor - Eye of the Tiger on my original list but couldn't leave it on, more so because the initial guitar riff is classic. As soon as that song starts, you know what it is and the movie is a sports movie classic!! Ha!

The funny part when doing looking at these list is that I can remember the music videos from when they came out. That was back when MTV showed music videos!!
