M1 was pretty ho-hum, other than the blizzard. The higher seeded song won every match-up, with only one really close battle. That said, there were some pretty high averages, so be on the look out for Let It Be, and Tiny Dancer next round.
Welcome to the Jungle (Guns n Roses) def. I Fought the Law (Clash), 77.5-74.
Is This Love (Bob Marley) def. Dr. John (Such a Night),77-47 . Yeah, it was the wrong version of the song, but I’m sure Marley would have won anyway. Dr. John is out of the tournament.
Tiny Dancer (Elton John) def. Kashmir (Led Zeppelin), 91-68. Zepp drops to 4-4 to finish their first round. Elton closes at 2-1.
My Girl (Temptations) def. Rock and Roll Music (Chuck Berry), 76-67 .
Let It Be (Beatles) def. Sloop John B (Beach Boys), 93-81. This was a worthy effort from the Beach Boys, but the Fab Four (plus Billy Preston) were too much. The Beach Boys drop to a still impressive 4-2 with one song left. The Beatles, who have the most songs in the tournament (13), improve to 8-4 with one song left.
