Votes are due by Friday April 8th at 8 pm EST: Both Divisions I and J feature powerhouse folk rock narratives in top seed spots, and both are facing off against Beatles songs. This is going to really depend on people’s moods. The other major story here is the strange case of the left side of Division J, where we have a London Calling vs Combat Rock match-up of late 70’s Clash vs early 80’s Clash (I don’t know enough about Clash history to say whether this is significant or not, that’s a Janos question.) Anyways, that’s just the way the cookie crumbled- just like Johnny Cash in Division F, no matter what happens The Clash is guaranteed a Round of 32 appearance.
Grooveshark link is here except for A Day In The Life and Twist And Shout. Vote by commenting on this post or by e-mailing LTDdotorg@gmail.com. Votes are due by Friday April 8th at 8 pm EST. Best of luck to all songs.
