Supernatural - Song-to-Scene - 1D - Poll

Yesterday was a great day to be the Impala. She won every one of her polls, meaning it will be Impala vs Impala next round. Back in Back, her unofficial theme song, took the most votes with 92%. Others going to round 2 are Crossroad Blues (53% and the only non-Impala winner), Born to be Wild (68%), and Smoke on the Water (60%). Curses all around for the poll rankings today. I believe there are 4 strong song-to-scene choices in these polls and 4 poor ones. Unfortunately all 4 good ones are against each other. Sometimes I think Fate is messing with me. Oh well. At least next round's choices will be super easy.

Below are links for which scenes are in the contest (Contest Basics), a bracket to see which ones are coming up next, and videos for the scenes in today's polls. I've also included the nomination form for songs you'd like to hear on Supernatural. Nominations will be open for another 3 days so voice your choice. As always, happy voting.

The song-to-scene contest is not a popularity contest per se.  It is about which song best fits which scene in tone and lyrics.  Unlike a favorite song or favorite scene contest, you could very well end up voting for a song and/or scene you don't like simply because it matches the best.  Ideally we are looking for a scene in which no other song could come even close to being as perfect.  We are looking for a song that could not be played in many different scenes in the series.  That one combination where the song and scene feel like they were completely in sync.  So think on your vast music knowledge and if you can think of several songs that would work in the scene, toss that choice out.  If you can think of several places where the song would work just as well or better in the series, toss that choice out too.  This contest only works if we let our episode and music prejudices go for 3 weeks.

Also previouslies, outtakes, gag reels, promos, etc. are NOT scenes and therefore do NOT count.  That cuts out Carry On Wayward Son completely, which has only been in the previouslies, the outtake of Jensen dancing to Eye of the Tiger (only the 30 seconds that were actually in the episode count), and the first part of Foreplay/Long Time, which started as a previously and segued into about 45 seconds of the actual episode.
