Living the Dream Music Tournament: Day 6 (Play-in Round)

A couple of today’s match-ups tend to rock a little harder than we’ve been used to, including a classic Pearl Jam vs. Nirvana showdown.  But then again, the hard-rockers may not  love Bette Midler vs. Whitney Houston.  Based on the scores I’ve been seeing the last few days, I think most of you will like that.   Listen at Grooveshark.   I think all of today’s links should work.

* Please listen to the studio version of Alive– Grooveshark’s version is live.

Whipping Post (Allman Brothers) vs. Like a Stone (Audioslave)

Lookin’ Out My Back Door (CCR) vs. Wave of Mutilation (Pixies)

Alive (Pearl Jam)  vs.  Lounge Act (Nirvana)

For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield) vs. Let’s Get Together (Youngbloods)

From a Distance (Bette Midler) vs. One Moment of Time (Whitney Houston)

    (Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever heard that Whitney song before… and never expected it would come near that score. Wow)

    Definitely the best battles so far…very hard to pick a winner. Sorry Bette….you really killed it with the whole GOD shit.

    Whipping Post (Allman Brothers) vs. Like a Stone (Audioslave) 5:5

    Lookin’ Out My Back Door (CCR) vs. Wave of Mutilation (Pixies) 8:8

    Alive (Pearl Jam) vs. Lounge Act (Nirvana) 6:8

    For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield) vs. Let’s Get Together (Youngbloods) 8:7

    From a Distance (Bette Midler) vs. One Moment of Time (Whitney Houston) 5:6

  6. Matt says:

    Whipping Post (Allman Brothers) (favorite ABB song) – 8 vs. Like a Stone (Audioslave) 4

    Lookin’ Out My Back Door (CCR) 7 vs. Wave of Mutilation (Pixies) 4

    Alive (Pearl Jam) vs. Lounge Act (Nirvana) – This is a very tough one, because Lounge Act has a great bass line and the chorus almost sounds like a pop song but then Kurt Cobain reminds us that he’s Kurt Cobain by repeating the first verse but screaming the heck out of it. On the other hand, “Alive” is an anthem of sorts. Lounge Act wins, 7-6.

    For What It’s Worth (Buffalo Springfield) 9 vs. Let’s Get Together (Youngbloods) 7 – Imagine these songs coming out when they did. Wouldn’t it be great to have modern songs like this today?

    From a Distance (Bette Midler) 3 In Vegas. Weird; vs. One Moment of Time (Whitney Houston) 7 Nobody beats old school Whitney.
