Stories of Divsion I: Well, first off, story of why I’m still posting- Nos is swamped (apparently being a lawyer is a lot of work) so one more day until he’s back in the author’s seat. In the meantime, I don’t mind doing this division, some of my favorites are sandwiched here. In our featured match-up, lone surviving Pink Floyd song “Another Brick In The Wall” tries to claim the third 1 seed upset of the tourney against Blood On The Tracks lead-off tune, “Tangled Up In Blue.” Bob Dylan is sitting at 1-2; this is his last song of the Round of 128 and only post-Highway 61 Revisited track to make it this far.
Other stories: The Beatles and Michael Jackson may be forever linked to those of us annoyed by our inability last decade to download any of the former on iTunes due to the latter’s ownership of publishing rights (MJ actually left those to McCartney in his will, which is why we can buy them now.) They can duke out any bad blood here: A Day In The Life faces off against Thriller. The always polarizing Bruce Springsteen claimed the only Division I Round of 256 upset last round, and will try to continue to do so versus The Prince of Soul himself. And finally, Eric Clapton is still alive with 3 seed ode to Pattie Boyd (awwwwwkward) up against Petty’s story of driving aimlessly around Los Angeles County- I have a feeling piano patience is going to play a big part in this pairing, this deep into the tourney.
