Is anyone else totally struggling with how early it gets dark right now? All I want to do is hang out in my apartment and make soup and bake things. Is it too soon in the season to want to be cozy all the time?
While I ponder what seasonally appropriate coziness even means, we can listen to this set of songs for Day 2 of the Round of 32! The Grooveshark link covers all the songs, except for Ike and Tina’s Proud Mary. Votes are due by Thursday at 10 pm EST. As we move further into the tournament, people seem to be a little more emotionally attached to their surviving favorites – each song that made it this far had to be pretty scrappy, right? Best of luck moving forward!
First up, Nirvana’s “Man Who Sold the World” is up against The Staples Singers’ “The Weight.“ Nirvana came out of the Round of 64 with a 6.43 average, just behind the average of The Staples Singers at 6.68. This could be anybody’s game!
Next we see Ike and Tina Turner with “Proud Mary” facing off with “Knockin’ on Heavens Door” by Guns N Roses. They came into this round with averages of 6.8 and 6.16.
Third match-up gives us “With a Little Help from my Friends” by Joe Cocker and “Come Together” by Aerosmith. These guys had averages of 7.24 and 6.12, respectively.
For our final set, we’ve got another Beatles cover, “Two of Us” by Aimee Mann and Michael Penn up against “New Speedway Boogie” by Marc Cohn. Their respective averages: 7.18 and 6.27.
Happy voting! Here’s the pasteable:
Man Who Sold the World (Nirvana) vs. The Weight (The Staples Singers)
Proud Mary (Ike and Tina Turner) vs. Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door (Guns N Roses)
With a Little Help from my Friends (Joe Cocker) vs. Come Together (Aerosmith)
Two of Us (Aimee Mann and Michael Penn) vs. New Speedway Boogie (Marc Cohn)
