Music Tournament: Division M, Day 1

Division M kicks off with two different contender songs featuring collaborations: the more obvious Under Pressure, but perhaps the less obvious California Stars as well. That, combined with some stalwart classics, have me nodding my head already. Grooveshark link is here, votes can be submitted by commenting on this post or by e-mailing LTDdotorg@gmail.com. Votes are due by Tuesday, March 7th at 9 pm. May the best song win…and 8 days until we move onto the Round of 128!

#1 Under Pressure (Queen & David Bowie) vs. #16 Jeremy (Pearl Jam)

#8 My Girl (Temptations) vs. #9 California Stars (Wilco & Billy Bragg)

#4 Go Your Own Way (Fleetwood Mac) vs. #13 Super Freak (Rick James)

#5 Welcome To The Jungle (Guns N Roses) vs. #12 Mannish Boy (Muddy Waters)

About g-mo

The day I was born, Michael Jackson's Thriller album was at the top of the Billboard 200. I've been trying my best to live up to that expectation ever since.
