Living the Dream Music Tournament: Day 23 Results

The unequivocal winner for today is Lookin Out My Back Door by CCR, which put up a monster average in crushing Truckin (Grateful Dead), 105-77.

Hallelujah (Jeff Buckley) def. Jolene (Dolly Parton), 93-82.  Three people called for the Leonard Cohen version, and I’m tempted to comply next round, but I don’t want to piss of the Buckley-ites, if those exist.

Tunnels (Arcade Fire) def. Holland 1945 (Neutral Milk Hotel), 101-79.  We’ll see how many Arcade songs advance.  I’d handicap it at 2.

A close one.  Livin’ On a Prayer (Bon Jovi) def. Friday I’m in Love (Cure) , 90-85.

Hey Ya (Outkast) def. Welcome to Jamrock (Damien Marley), 103-81.  Certainly one of the top songs of the decade.

Tonight Damien Marley, the Cure, Dolly Parton and Neutral Milk Hotel were all bounced from the tournament.

    Please keep the Buckley. I like Cohen, but I think Buckley took Hallelujah to another level.

      While I’m one who called for Cohen, I agree that the Buckley version should stay – it stands on its own and when people think of this song, they think of Buckley.
