    I'd like to ring in the new year with a poll. But not just any poll. The poll to end all polls.

    After looking at the 8 Opeth CD's, I noticed that, with a little shifting around, Opeth has 64 songs.

    In the US, every March, 64 college basketball teams square-off in a monthlong tournament called March Madness.

    I propose we do the same with these 64 songs.

    For now, I would like you to pick your top 8 Opeth songs. These will be the #1 and #2 seeds (there are 4 of each seed from 1 to 16). I will wait a week or so before tallying the results.

    Then, I will list the overall rankings - 1 and 2 seeds picked by you, the rest by me. I will give the board one final chance to complain about my rankings.

    Finally, we will begin the poll. Don't worry about the details now - I will make everything clear when the time comes. All you have to do is show up, vote for each matchup, and watch to see who wins.

    So, your assignment for now - list your top 8 songs (in no particular order). The 4 picked the most will be the #1 seeds, the next for will be the #2 seeds. I will give heavy attention to your choices for possible #3 seeds.

    Cheers! And Happy New Year!
