I am quite pleased to have posting duties for this bracket, as I dig pretty much all of these songs. We have a good mix of energy and emotion on the eight tracks below, which you can listen to here. Vote by commenting below before 8pm (EST) on Thursday.
#2 Can’t Find My Way Home (Blind Faith) vs. #15 Teenage FBI (Guided By Voices). This is Dr. J’s top seed, and a good choice. Clapton was a bit of a band slut in these days- fitting in this Blind Faith album between dominating stints with Cream and Derek and the Dominoes (plus a cameo on While My Guitar Gently Weeps).
#3 Temptation (New Order) vs. #14 Let Down (Radiohead). I’m picking this as the fierce battle of the day. Of course, I’m usually wrong.
#6 I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (Otis Redding) vs. #11 Ever Make You Mine (These United States). During and after last tournament there was definitely a clamor for “more Otis!” from Astrid and others. Let’s see what happens when he steps to the plate tonight.
