Votes due Sunday, 8/28 at 8 PM (on my 28 and 1/3 birthday): Beautiful people- what a run we have been on, and how close to the finish we find ourselves. To mirror Lindsay’s post, we have the other two match-ups on the other side of things. When you find yourselves at your respective hurricane parties, for the love of God as long as your internet holds out, hold a match-up party and get some votes in- these are good and include the most epic battle of the Eight. Grooveshark link is here (I think we’re on Widget hiatus collectively). Follow your hearts, the link is here, and figure out which two of these four songs deserve the last two Final Four mantles.
In the top right corner we have- the battle of Mark Knopfler and Gladys Knight. The Straits versus the Pips. The forlorn lost questioning of love long lost matched up against the assured and confident loyalty of a lover always there. Sitting in one place and pondering versus the transcontinental commitment. OK, that’s enough. Figure it out: is it Romeo and Juliet, 400 years removed but still as potent? Or is it that always available Midnight Train To Georgia for those east-bound owners of California dreams crushed?
And finally- the one and only battle of prominently featured LTDMTers. On one side, Queen shooting for a third medal in just two online tournaments. On the other side, the most unfortunately overpassed Landslide, who is now three rounds further than its incorrectly advanced adversary “Blowin’ In The Wind” got in the prior tournament. This is not a battle to take lightly, and I encourage all to vote with their heartiest of hearts.
#2 Romeo And Juliet (Dire Straits)
#7 Midnight Train To Georgia (Gladys Knight and the Pips)
#3 Somebody To Love (Live In Montreal) (Queen)
#6 Landslide (Fleetwood Mac)
