Music Tournament Round of 256: Division P, Day 1

Yo!  Pay attention right now.  This is the LAST division in the Round of 256.  If you’ve been  lurking and slacking, but not voting, this is the last chance to make your voice heard this round. Listen at Grooveshark and vote by commenting or emailing LTDdotorg@gmail.com before 9pm on Sunday.

Let’s start sentimental.

#1 Piano Man (Billy Joel) vs. #16 Evangeline (Emmylou Harris).  Emmylou faces elimination.

#8 Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones) vs. #9 Sunshine of Your Love (Cream).  Wow. Bruising.

#4  Where Did You Sleep Last Night (Nirvana) – also called In the Pines or My Girl vs. #14 Debaser (Pixies).  Does it get better than this- the pupil who exceeded all expectations vs. the master.

#5  Pride in the Name of Love (U2) vs. #12 Holiday (Green Day).  Didn’t these guys do a post-Katrina collaboration called “The Saints Are Coming”?  For the NFL? The thin line between entertainment and war, right?

    A couple of years ago we made a regular habit of driving out to my friends’ semi-squat in the middle of nowhere and playing Rock Band at full volume til the wee hours of the morning. There are a few songs that I only know through that experience, and as such I can’t really tell what I think of them. Gimme Shelter is one of those. I know it’s fun to sing. Is it a good song? I don’t know.

    Where Did You Sleep Last Night (Nirvana) 8.5
    Debaser (Pixies) 8
    Fantastic match up, sad to see one song go.

    Pride in the Name of Love (U2) 6.5
    Holiday (Green Day) 7.5
    I just did that.

    Pride in the Name of Love (U2) 6.5
    Holiday (Green Day) 7…..god. I don’t like this much but it keeps coming up against songs that are less than 7, so it keeps advancing.

    Piano Man 10
    Evangeline 5.5

    Moments make 10’s. Listening to these match-ups in the diviest bar in College Park that still has free internet, surrounded by a handful of old single men all nursing 24 ounce Budweisers and looking with mild interest at the NCAA bracket announcements on the shitty television in the corner…makes this is a 10.

    Gimme Shelter 8.5
    Sunshine Of Your Love 7

    This match-up seems like it should be happening in a dark alley somewhere, with knives and leather jackets.

    Pines 6
    Debaser 8

    Pixies, easy. Pines is good, but not today.

    Pride 6.5
    Holiday 7.75

    Oooooooooooooooh. This is going to be a great, great bracket.
