One of the following excuses is true as to why I completely missed doing my post yesterday:
1. I was totally wearing my Tuesday day-of-the-week underpants, so I had no idea it was Monday yesterday.
2. Twilight: Breaking Dawn (Part I) comes out on Friday, and I was busy planning my outfit. Go team Jacob.
3. I completely thought I was supposed to post on Thursday.
So. Yeah. I’m sorry. Anyway! On with the tournament. We’re on to the second half of the Round of 16. After this is the Elite Eight, and we’re in the final days of this tournament. Listen here, and vote in the comments below by Thursday at 5:00PM PST/8:00PM EST.
First up is two ladies with powerful voices, as “Valerie” (Amy Winehouse) goes up against “I Found A Reason” (Cat Power).
Next up the king of covers, with “Won’t Back Down” (Johnny Cash) up against a cover that haunts you, “Mad World” (Gary Jules)
In my favorite-titled match up, “Black Magic Woman” (Santana) is up against “Straight to Hell” (Lilly Allen).
And finally, in another wildly apropos match-up, one of these tunes is going to have to go: “I Fought the Law” (The Clash) vs. “Wonderful World” (Joey Ramone). I believe these are the #1 and #2 seed from the round of 32, so this should be an interesting round.
So listen, vote, and decide who belongs in the Elite Eight:
“Valerie” (Amy Winehouse) vs.”I Found A Reason” (Cat Power)
“Won’t Back Down” (Johnny Cash) vs. “Mad World” (Gary Jules)
“Black Magic Woman” (Santana) vs. “Straight to Hell” (Lilly Allen)
“I Fought the Law” (The Clash) vs. “Wonderful World” (Joey Ramone)
