Well, I'm running out to a new year's get together so I have to do this quickly. Since the new year is arriving soon, I've decided to go with the idea of "pressing on." After all, we have a "lot more living to do." Chris, I'll get to your matchup for showdown #17. Sorry, I just wanted to do something that seemed a little bit related to the holiday. So here it is folks. Which song do you enjoy the most?

I'd Rather Press On

or

Salute (Got a Lot More Livin' to Do)

Enjoy.

Minstrel Man, I seem to have been gone when you were doing these regularly. What do the numbers indicate in the lists you post? EX: Showdown #1
Old Dan's Records 16 Uncle Toad Said 2... what do # 16 and #2 mean?

Those are the number of votes for each song. [/QUOTE]Who votes? If it's us, where do we vote?

Hi Cathy:

The showdowns #1 - 15 are ones we've already done. I just put them at the beginning of the post so that we can look back at the results so far. We are all voting on #16 at the moment as you have done. Soon I will count the responses and add #16 to the growing list of results. Voting is done when people respond to the current post with their choice of the song they prefer (at the moment, of course).

"Salute (A Lot More Livin' To Do)".

Has more energy to it and is better than the other two "rockers" on said LP and "...Press On" itself.

I'm not too fond of the Salute album relative to the others, not that it's a bad album, and I think I hold that against the title cut.
