Covers Tournament Round of 32: Day 4

Punk's not dead... if you vote

We’re down to the last day of the Round of 32.  This is where it gets serious: the songs who make the cut here having officially achieved that status of being Generally Acceptable to a broad audience.  To be part of that audience, listen here (except for 99 Problems), vote in the comments below by 8:00PM EST/5:00 PM PST Saturday, November 12 (no extended voting on this one: I like to maintain the illusion that 8PM on a Saturday I might just be getting ready for a big night out, okay?)

And if you were only joining up for this round, you might assume what our audience here seems to find generally acceptable are punk covers.  The Clash has the honor of being both the coverer and the coveree in this round, and the Ramones is the round of 64 #1 seed, coming in with nearly an 8.1 average and beating out the #2 seed by 0.3.

Like the kids say (or at least they did when I was a kid): Punk’s not dead.

The Swell Season

But since we’re all pretty well familiar with these songs by now and I gotta run, I’ll just leave you with the voting link again and the pastable:

“Black Magic Woman” (Santana) vs. “99 Problems” (Hugo)

“Chelsea Hotel #2” (Regina Spektor) vs.  “Straight to Hell” (Lilly Allen)

“I Fought the Law” (The Clash) vs, “Into the Mystic”  (The Swell Season)

“Wonderful World” (The Ramones) vs. “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”  (G Love)

    Everything is scored a little lower because I listened through computer speakers. Makes a big difference.

    Lilly just kills it for me.

    “Wonderful World” (Joey Ramone) vs. “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” (G Love) 9/6.5
    It’s just Joey Ramone, not the Ramones. I’m going to be obnoxious and keep saying it until it’s right.
