First, Jackie Wilson goes up against Thin Lizzy. As Orce astutely pointed out last round, that although the band states that a jailbreak will happen somewhere in the town, it will probably at the jail.
Next is Brooklyn’s Delta Spirit against perhaps the real spirit of the delta, the Godfather of Soul.
Next is the Kinks, one of the most prolific bands of all time against Pata Pata who…. well… there you are. But it’s the best song, not the biggest career!
Lastly, STP‘s big hit goes up against the big hitter Mavis. Will voters let orginals v. covers come into consideration or have we finally put that debate to bed? We shall see!
