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.
