Round of 32: Divisions A, B, C and D Championship Results

Our first Division Champions are unveiled

The Round of 32 has crowned it’s first 4 of 16 division champions.  There were no surprises in store for this set of matchups though.  Most of them were really no contest, but Division C was a real nail biter.  Voting fatigue seems to be setting in a little bit for each of the winners.  Average scores for “Higher and Higher” and “Home” dropped by 0.54 and 0.32, respectively, since the last round.

U2 was looking like they might find their way through this tournament, but Little Lion Man ate them alive.  Division A Champion #1 Little Lion Man (Mumford and Sons) defeats #2 Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For (U2) 231.6 to 204.15

Janos dropped a rare Danno Hammer (patent pending) like a fox, helping to secure what was already a sure win for Arcade Fire.  Division B Champion #3 Sprawl II (Arcade Fire) defeats #4 Portions For Foxes (Rilo Kiley) 194.6 to 173.7

Higher and Higher busts it's way into the Round of 16

It’s a cloudy day for The Kinks.  Division C Champion #1 Higher and Higher (Jackie Wilson) defeats #2 Sunny Afternoon (Kinks, The) 206.8 to 204.1

PCT voters finally acquiesced to Cake’s song title request.  Always a gentleman, voter ChrisB helped usher them out with a warm slice of deliciousness…no really, he voted with everyone’s favorite irrational number, π (which I believe is a PCT first?).  Division D Champion #1 Home (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes) defeats #3 Let Me Go (Cake) 222.25 to 185.39

    Danno, I do appreciate your reciprocal hammer. Felt like an old school duel.
    I’m not a big hammerer, and am probably done hammering for the tournament.
    Also, that is a monster score from Little Lion Man.

  2. Danno says:

    Hehe…I figured I haven’t really blatantly dropped any all tournament. It would be almost wrong to go a whole tournament without Danno dropping at least one Danno Hammer right? 🙂

    Sprawl II vs. Little Lion Man? It’s like the grammys. Who’s going to write the post-tournament editorial about how nobody knows these bands?
