Round of 128: Division B Results

Well, the new seeding system has proved itself.  I was prepared, excited, for some upsets.  Namely, I was ready to see the Cubans blow Adele away, but her supporters came out in the end, and the heartbroken lady-Brit will move on to the Round of 64.

All in all, scores for this round were underwhelming.  28 voters x 8 songs and only one 10 awarded.  Nothing even averaged above a 7.  The highest score went to Stealer’s Wheel who defeated the Replacements, despite some really strong support and enthusiasm for the latter.

Here are the scores (rounded to 2 decimal places):

#1 Someone Like You (Acoustic Live) (Adele) – 159.3
#8 Dos Gardenias (Buena Vista Social Club) – 150.4

#4 Portions for Foxes (Rilo Kiley) – 172.92
#5 Thirteen (Big Star) – 159.3

#2 Stuck in the Middle With You (Stealer’s Wheel) – 194.9
#7 Alex Chilton (The Replacements) – 170.1

#3 Sprawl II (Arcade Fire) – 186.4
#6 Paradise by the Dashboard Light (Meat Loaf) – 157.08

See ya, BVSC, Big Star (and all songs about you), Replacements, and Loaf!

    Wow….I had convinced myself that jazz and folk forms (not of the US or the Old Country) were not being considered in this tournament. Heartbroken I couldn’t put in a vote for my people! RIP BVSC.
