There seemed to be enough interest in chat to sustain this, so I'm going to give it a try.
There are 32 arias. Since most people are not going to be familiar with all or even most of them, I've included a Youtube link for each...
For the record, there are way too many great songs to only pick 16 so this one's gonna be a little bigger than normal. Most of the songs are from the 60's. Unfortunately, some of the links are to live versions and re-recordings (and other things...
Post show tunes, por favor.

Post what top 40 hit songs (US or UK charts) you think are the absolute...
The songs aren't going to be all one hit wonders or close to it, but I'm staying away from the really big names for this one. There are too many songs to choose from!

(I hope this is okay you guys)
We haven't had one of these in a while, and since we've never had any battles involving any Jacksons I figured why not. Each bracket is one Michael song vs. a Janet song. This might end up with the last two songs being either one or the other, but...

I thought this was a lot of fun before. Let's get it going again. :) I picked something pretty mainstream so more people could participate.
For those who need a refresher, I'll pick eight songs, pair them off, and you eliminate one from each...
Here We Go:
This battle only runs through the album Desire which was release in 1976 because I didn't have space for everything even from that period, so I left out the most modern stuff people were less likely to be familar with.

Same rules as the other games, pick one song from each pairing, and come back to vote on the next round. Let's go with a 90's band, to complement the 80's and 60's bands that have gone before (and the inevitable Floyd or Zeppelin Battle coming up):...

I'm going to divide this game into artists and rounds.
