Music Tournament Round of 256: Division N, Day 2

Tonight’s post is going up a little early, and the Results for Division M are going up a little late- though voting for those matchups will still close at 8pm.

Peter Gabriel, John Lennon (solo), James, the Young Rascals and this incarnation of Jefferson Airplane face elimination.    Vote by commenting below or emailing LTDdotorg@gmail.com by 8pm Thursday.

I am having major Grooveshark problems, so tonight I’ve got to use Youtube links.  Hopefully this will be resolved later.

#2 Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana) vs. #15 Solsbury Hill (Peter Gabriel)

#7 Instant Karma (John Lennon) vs. #10 Laid (James)

#3 Somebody to Love (Jefferson Airplane) vs. #14 Straight to Hell (Clash)  With MIA out of the tournament, the Clash have regained custody of this hook.

#6 Golden Slumbers Medley (Beatles) vs. Good Lovin’ (Young Rascals)

    Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana) 7.2
    Solsbury Hill (Peter Gabriel) 7 (two ears and a heart? You bet.)

    Instant Karma (John Lennon) 8.5
    Laid (James) 7.0

    Somebody to Love (Jefferson Airplane) 6.5 (surrealist pillows make for strange dreams).
    Straight to Hell (Clash) 5.5

    Golden Slumbers Medley (Beatles) 10
    Good Lovin’ (Young Rascals) 7 (this is like sherbet after a big meal: good, but only to cleanse the palette, and not a meal on it’s own.)

    Today, sentimental beats out nostalgic.

    Instant Karma (John Lennon) 4
    Laid (James) 8
    The most interesting thing about Instant Karma was Yoko Ono knitting blindfolded. And that’s not very interesting. Re: Laid: She only sings when she’s on top?? Oh, censorship.

    Somebody to Love (Jefferson Airplane) 7.5
    Straight to Hell (Clash) 8.5
    What vocals on Somebody to Love, but Straight to Hell jived with my sentimental mood, oddly enough.

    Golden Slumbers Medley (Beatles) 7.6
    Good Lovin’ (Young Rascals) 6
    My whole life I’ve thought it was “Due to Love.” Or maybe “Two to Love.” Those both might be more interesting songs.
