(Update: Thanks to Danno for fixing the Grooveshark link. Listen to the full list of songs here)
Votes due by Tuesday, May 31st at 8:00 PM EST. 2010, it was Arkansas-Pine Bluff vs. Winthrop. In 2009 it was Morehead State vs. Alabama State. That’s right- I’m talking about the 64-65 seed play-in game of the NCAA
tournament. You know, I always wondered whether or not they have a lot of festivities for the 64-65 game, and how many people go.
And where do they hold that game? I could look up this information, but honestly, I can’t be bothered. The thing is though, I think I built in this extra waiting time with this possibility of play-ins in mind, so the timing works perfectly.
With that, I give you- Play-In Matches: Day 1. Basically, we took the entirety of all new nominations by new voters and put them into open spots according to how we thought they should be seeded. We gave seeding priority to voters who didn’t make Bronze Tier but had at least participated before. The rest was subjective objectivity. Don’t be offended if you are in a play-in match, we just thought this was the group of 14 songs that necessitated it most.
So for newbies….click on this Grooveshark link, listen to each song at the same volume, and when you’ve listened to both songs, give each a score between 0 and 10. Then go to the next match. When have given scores to all the songs, either post your scores as a comment on this page or e-mail your scores to LTDdotorg@gmail.com. Votes are due by 8 pm EST on Tuesday May 31st.
