Rock Town Hall’s playoff series to determine—once and for all—the best song on the original Nuggets compilation begins with a determination of the Best Song on Side 1. This part of the process is surprisingly simple, provided you can handle the turmoil that may come with selection a BEST SONG from each of the original Nuggets‘ 4 albums sides. I, for one, will experience tremendous turmoil over my choice for Side 1’s BEST SONG. What a killer top 5–seeded songs, if you ask me!
Before you place your vote and/or you lobby on behalf of a particular song, please take some time to review each of the songs in this division. Then, you are encouraged to state your choice for BEST SONG on Side 1 in the Comments section (you must be registered to add comments, if you’re not already registered, please do so: the more chatter the merrier) and place your vote in the poll associated with this thread. The winner of this album side will move onto a playoff against the eventual winner of Side 4. One day at a time, my friends, one day at a time…
