There are more than 14 GRBers who submitted songs. Lame that they haven’t voted.

Sorry, I was out of town all day so I'm just now getting back online. Since this one ended in a tie I'm going to open the voting back up until Tuesday morning (basically another 36 hours).

They've each received another vote, so it's still tied! Another 16ish hours to go...

Finally pulled the trigger on "To Love Somebody." It just has a great groove, but both are great covers.
