To make it this far is a huge accomplishment for these songs. Now, these songs are no strangers to accomplishment. Somebody to Love made it to #2 in the UK and #13 on the Billboard chart. Clint Eastwood was a #4 hit in the UK. Landslide hit #10 on
the Adult Contemporary chart and inspired a hit Smashing Pumpkins cover. Crabbuckit was named the 37th greatest Canadian song of all time by CBC Radio in 2005 (not to discount Crabbuckit, but it was competing against Celine Dion…) and its video hit #1 on the MuchMusic Countdown. Midnight Train to Georgia was a #1 single on R&B and pop charts and received a Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance. A Kiss to Build a Dream On made it to the Pop 20 chart. I’ve Been Loving You Too Long was a #2 R&B single and was ranked #110 on Rolling Stone‘s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
But which 4 will be able to add the People’s Choice Tournament quarter-finals to their claim to fame? You decide…
