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

As I noted earlier, the top seeds in this division are strong, and there was no threat of upsets on Day 1.

Re: picture on left- if you aren’t familiar with the Thriller Prison Dance in the Phillipines, look it up.

#1 Tangled Up In Blue (Bob Dylan) cruised past #16 No Cars Go (Arcade Fire), 120-92.  Just fyi, Bob Dylan is 4-0 with one song left in the Round of 256.  After an uneven first round, the Dylan songs that did advance are looking solid.  The polarizing Arcade Fire drops to 1-1 in the Round of 256.

#8 Another Brick in the Wall (Pink Floyd) def. #9 Mr. Jones (Counting Crows), 106-79. I’m not really sure how Counting Crows got a #9 seed, given that many voters don’t seem to like them.

#4 A Day in the Life (Beatles) def. #13 Crimson and Clover (Tommy James), 117-96.  The Beatles have owned the “best band of all-time” tag pretty much since arriving on American shores. In this tournament, they led the way with (9) Round of 512 wins.  This win brings them to 5-1, with three songs left in the round.  All three are seeded to win.

#5 Thriller (Michael Jackson) def. #12 Blitzkrieg Bop (Ramones), 113-107.  Jackson improves to 2-1 this round, with two songs left.

The Ramones, Tommy James and Counting Crows become the 166th, 167th and 168th artists eliminated from the tournament.
