Music Tournament Round of 256: Division B, Day 1 Results

The headline was almost a shocker- “Shaolin tactics stun #1 seed Zeppelin!”  Instead, #1 When the Levee Breaks (Led Zeppelin) lurched its way to a narrow win over upstart Gravel Pit (Wutang Clan), 115.6-113.  I went back to WLB’s first round score, and found that the absence of Jordan Ballard (10) and Jim Rock Schiller (9) was unhelpful to the 2nd round cause.  Adrock and I both dropped from an 8.5 to a 6.5.  To me, that song either pumps you up, or just drags along.

#8 Superstition (Stevie Wonder) was in top form, racking up an 8.3 average in taking out #9 In the Midnight Hour (Wilson Picket), 149-136.

#4 Wild World (Cat Stevens) endured a fight from pesky #13 Man on the Moon (R.E.M), 135.3-129.9 .

#5 Hey Jude (Beatles) cruised past #12 Self Esteem (Offspring),  146-119.

All the lower seeds- Wutang Clan, R.E.M, Wilson Pickett and Offspring, are out of the tournament.  That brings the total of eliminated artists to 139.
