Two match-ups came down to the wire today. In the battle of old school legends, Tracks of My Tears (Smokey Robinson) and Heartbreak Hotel (Elvis) battled to essentially a tie, forcing me to re-check the numbers. After a full recount, Elvis triumphed 108-106.5. Every vote counts, folks. Sorry, Smokey.
Tied at 74, Feel Good Inc. (Gorillaz) pulled away thanks to decisive calls from Ben Waters and Andy Walton, prevailing over Gangster’s Paradise (Coolio), 102-94.
Australia (Shins) never really got close, going down Last Night (Strokes) 115-94.
Don’t Worry Baby (Beach Boys) took out More Than a Woman (Tavares), 108-78.
Second time was a charm for Radiohead. Karma Police beat This Time This Year (Defiance Ohio) easily, 113-68.
