The Ultimate Love Song (Round #2)

There were some stunning upsets in the Women’s Division. 4 lower seeds were able to move on in the second round with #16 “At Last” by Etta James knocking off the #1 seed. #3 “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion was able to eek out a win at the last minute. I am sure Titanic #2 played a part in helping that song win.

Well here is Round #2 which includes both the Men’s and Women’s Division. Remember for each poll, you must pick a winner from the top two songs, and a winner from the bottom two songs from each group.

Please share this blog with you fellow Strivers. It’s been fun monitoring the results, but we need more participants to make it even better.

In the Men’s Division there were some close races, but in a tournament, it’s not were you are ranked that matters, but being able to survive and advance. With that said..Here are the results from the Men’s Division.

#1 Ribbon in the Sky was really no competition.

#15 Lenny Williams – “Cause I love you”, beat out the heavy favorite Billy Joel…that was a surprise.

#3 Forever, For Always, For Love defeated Van Morrison…it was very close.

#4 Spend my Life with You by Eric Benet won convincingly.

#5 I write a song for you by Earth Wind & Fire.

#11 Climax Blues Band – “I love you” won with a late surge.

#7 Donny Hathaway and #9 Robin Thicke ‘s  “Lost Without You” round out the final 8.
