    Default Hell Freezes Over CD Elimination Game

    Okay folks – I’m going to go ahead and start the 25th anniversary Hell Freezes Over CD Elimination game and we’ll see how it goes in terms of participation. If there is no interest after a few days, we can always suspend it. To recap the way this works:

    Every song on the Hell Freezes Over CD will begin the game with 15 points. Each time you post, you will select one song that you want to save and add one point to it; then, you will select one other song that you want to eliminate and subtract two points from it. When a song reaches zero (0) it is eliminated from the game. Any member in good standing can play at anytime except you must allow at least three other players to vote before you can play again. Before you vote, you must first check the previous player’s post to make sure they tallied the score correctly in their post. If it is necessary to make a correction, clearly state why you are doing so in your post. Then, list the song that you are giving a point to and the song that you are subtracting two points from. You must then copy all of the songs in play from the previous post to your post and revise the tally to reflect your vote. Once a song reaches 0, you can eliminate it from the list. The game ends once there is only one song remaining. If you need further explanation or examples about the game, please go here.

    Here are the songs in play:

    Get Over It – 15
    Love Will Keep Us Alive – 15
    The Girl from Yesterday – 15
    Learn to Be Still – 15
    Tequila Sunrise – 15
    Hotel California – 15
    Wasted Time – 15
    Pretty Maids All in a Row – 15
    I Can't Tell You Why – 15
    New York Minute – 15
    The Last Resort – 15
    Take It Easy – 15
    In the City – 15
    Life in the Fast Lane – 15
    Desperado – 15

    I will be monitoring the game to make sure the scores are tallied correctly. So, less than a week after the anniversary of the band’s last show in 1980, let’s celebrate 25 years of hell freezing over.

    Hope everyone enjoys the game.

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    scottside - I am revising your post because you copied the original list. What you should do is copy the list from the post of the last person that voted and add/subtract your votes from that. So here is the revised list:

    Get Over It – 16
    Love Will Keep Us Alive – 13
    The Girl from Yesterday – 13
    Learn to Be Still – 13
    Tequila Sunrise – 15
    Hotel California – 17
    Wasted Time – 15
    Pretty Maids All in a Row – 15
    I Can't Tell You Why – 15
    New York Minute – 13
    The Last Resort – 15
    Take It Easy – 16
    In the City – 15
    Life in the Fast Lane – 15
    Desperado – 15

    I think I'm eligible as well, if I'm counting 3 votes after mine. Or is it 3 votes after the vote after mine?
