Hall of Fame: Video Finalists AND a NEW CATEGORY [imp. udpate]
Final polling for best video:
[this poll has been completed]
And now, your new category. YES, THIS IS THE NEW CATEGORY AND YOU MAY LEAVE NOMINATIONS HERE.
That was to avoid any confusion, like there has been in the past.
This new category is brought to you by my sister Jo-Anne:
Song that is most recoginzed by it's opening
NOTE: This is not the same as best guitar riff or even BEST opening. You are to nominate the songs that are instantly recognizable by the opening notes/drums/voice/guitar/whatever and are maybe even defined by that opening, as in Stairway to Heaven or Smoke on the Water or, in the case of my opinion, Running With the Devil. It's not so much a the best of category as it is a way of honoring a song that has a great, recognizable, defining opening.
Have I explained myself clearly? We'll find out soon enough.
Update: It doesn't have to be a riff, per se. It could be a voice or any other kind of tell-tale noise, such as in Black Sabbath's Iron Man. So we are just calling it OPENING instead of opening riff.
