Oof…a not so good landmark on this results post- for the first time in a long time, we had no song breaking into triple digits on scores. With 14 voters, Division M being the so-to-speak “last pick 1st round, 1st pick 2nd round” of the snake-style reseeding, and this being a weekend post, it was a perfect storm. Let’s get to results and hope we can pick things up this week!
Let’s go to the high scorer to start things off- Division M becomes the 4th division of the round with a division leader not in the 1 seed spot. “Crabbuckit” advances and eliminates “Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys,” 98.57-85. Our second Canadian hip hop artist in LTD history to advance to the Round of 64. Bravo, K-os.
K-os will be matching off against The Verve next round, whose “Bittersweet Symphony” eliminates “Louisiana Woman Mississippi Man,” 88-71.8. Fare thee well, country music megastars.
The other side matches are now looking VERY interesting for the next round. “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” defeats “Dramamine,” 96.35-78.8. However, it also drops in average score from a 7.05 to a 6.88. In the meantime, the Bowie refuses to go down, crushing Blind Melon into a fruit juice, 96.25-80.35. But more importantly, the “Life On Mars” average SKYROCKETS from a 6.05 to a, you guessed it, 6.88. This is going to be a Round of 64 match to watch come August.
Out- Blind Melon, Iron Horse, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, and Traffic.
