Who are the Clash? Apparently the second artist in the Round of 256 to claim victories in two match-ups in one day. Except whereas Johnny Cash did it with a 2 and a 3 seed, the London boys did it from a 4 and a 9 seed today, and both with close finishes at the end.
Rock The Casbah holds off a surprising amount of voter support for 13 seed Hit The Road Jack, 123.85-119.85. Casbah also claims high score for the day.
Train In Vain defeats John Lennon’s Imagine in a close one, 120.55-117.75.
Rocket Man’s seed was apparently too low. Or maybe not enough women stood by Aretha’s anthem this time around. Elton John smokes Natural Woman, 121.25-103.5.
Last results are interesting. Not that in Marvin Gaye beat Gogol Bordello, that’s less interesting and more a given. More in that Let’s Get It On over Start Wearing Purple, 119.5-78.5, means that our Division J #1 seed got the lowest out of the four scores of winners today. Trouble brewing for Marvin?
Out of the tournament: Gogol Bordello. Aretha will go on to the Round of 128 with “Respect”. Ray’s still got What’d I Say in Division M, and Lennon solo still has “Instant Karma” in N.
