    Default The Best of Timothy B. Schmit Survivor

    Time for The Very Best of Timothy B. Schmit Survivor, where we vote off Tim's songs that we determined by poll to be his "very best" until we get to the last one standing!

    If you're new, for a basic overview of the game, see this post: Survivor Overview

    I'm going to list the songs here. Vote for the song that you feel should be eliminated from the list. The song that gets the most votes will be taken off of the list (or, in the language of Survivor, "Voted off of the island.") Each round, one more song will get axed, until there's only one left. Remember: you're voting for the song you want taken off, not the song you want to stay.

    Note: Do not criticize how/why other people vote. Their reasons are their own and they are free to vote however they like. Also, never attack a fellow poster. You can disagree about a certain song without making it personal. Sometimes these games can get heated, but remember.. it's still just a game.

    Each round will last 48 hours after posting to give people a chance to vote who don't post every day. That means that the first round will be over at 8:00 Eastern time the day after tomorrow. Any votes cast on or after 8:00 Eastern the second day will not be counted. If you're going to wait 'til the last minute, be sure you leave yourself enough time to hit "submit"!

    If you miss a round, don't think you can't play. It's all good!

    Since there may be discussion posts, be sure to make it clear when you are casting your vote. Votes cannot be changed once you have voted, even if you make a mistake - so be sure you get it right the first time!

    If you get confused about what round we are in, look at this post. I'll always update it to reflect the current round. Also feel free to post any questions if you don't understand what's going on.

    If there is a tiebreaker, then ALL votes from ALL previous rounds are tallied and whoever has the most prior votes is eliminated. Thatís the way itís done on the real show, thatís the way itís done here. If there is a complete tie with prior votes (Murphyís Law), then I'll have a sudden-death trivia question ready. The first person who answers it correctly gets to break the tie. The odds of that happening are slim, but you never know, and it's good to be prepared.

    The tie-breaker question will be asked one hour after results are in, if there is need for it. The exception is the last round. If the tie-breaker does not resolve the last round, then the tie will be allowed to stand.

    ============================


    The game is over, and the winner is....

    OK, I'll get things started! There's one song on this list that I admit kind of annoys me. I don't think it deserves to be alongside these other great tunes. "So in love - are we two - that we don't know what to do - so in love (two so in love) so much in love (two so in love)" - gag me!

    I cast my vote for So Much in Love.

    I think it's dreary, and it's the one song out of all of them on the list that I skip, so my vote goes to
    'Make you feel my love'.

    Boy's Night Out sounds like the theme song to an 80's sitcom. I've never liked it and it doesn't sound like a Timothy song to me.

    I vote for Boys Night Out.

    The video doesn't do it any favors, either.

    (Not that we should let it influence us but... man oh man. He looks so uncomfortable in the bar scenes, doing those high fives and all!)

    To be fair, though, he's adorable at 1:09, 3:46, and the end as well!

    Now, now...don't let the video influence your vote. Besides, BNO is sucky enough without having to revert to the video.
