Round of 256: Division D, Right Side Results

(2) Landslide, Fleetwood Mac

(2) Landslide, Fleetwood Mac

Tabulating the scores and looking at the comments this time around, one thing is clear:  The People do not applaud Cher as a pioneer of auto-tune.  It seems that our voters could do without the “Cher Effect.”  

Although Believe won the 2000 Grammy for Best Dance Recording, it will be dancing out of the People’s Choice Tournament tonight.  Fleetwood Mac wins by a Landslide.  (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.)  Fleetwood Mac’s Landslide defeats Believe by Cher by almost 75 points, the second largest difference so far in the tournament.  (224.9-150.1)  With one song to go, Cher remains in the tournament.

In our second match-up of the night, we see our closest race, with Home by Zero 7 defeating Queensryche’s Operation: Mindcrime by 11.50.  (164.5-153)  We’ll say goodbye to Queensryche tonight, while Home becomes the second song with that title to advance, with one more Home to go.  

We also bid farewell to Natalie Cole tonight.  Jumping Jack Flash by the Rolling Stones defeats Cole’s Unforgettable, 220.3-196.5.  To commemorate JJF’s victory, please enjoy one of the more unlikely covers of all time:  Aretha Franklin does Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  

(11) Portions for Foxes, Rilo Kiley

And finally, Portions for Foxes by Rilo Kiley defeats LCD Soundsystem’s I Can Change, 212.5-182.2, which was their last song standing in the tournament.

Eliminated:  Queensryche, Natalie Cole, and LCD Soundsystem.  Thanks for the memories!

    I think Dance Yourself Clean lost in the first round, so LCD Soundsystem is out, right?
