The most dramatic story in Division K is “Landslide”, the only song in this tournament not nominated by one of us “People.” It actually received an automatic bye after a scoring error mistakenly eliminated it from the Living the Dream Tournament. If you aren’t familiar with America, the band, their big hit is “A Horse with No Name,” which I thought was a Neil Young song. “Sister Golden Hair” was also a #1 hit.
In Division L, Flo and the Machine have been looking strong, but CCR, an always dangerous tournament foe, i s lurking…around the bend. Otis gives his second of three contenders a whirl, and Butch Walker temporarily replaces Semisonic as the Cinderella story of the tournament. Let’s see how these Division semi-finals shake out.Listen here and vote by commenting below before 8pm (EST) on Wednesday, August 10th.
