Note (1:40 am/Thursday): Grooveshark is back up, but that was a scary few hours. The Shark’s days seem potentially numbered, and we’ll continue figuring out what service we should use instead (Spotify, PlayIt, YouTube.)
Calling all coaches! We’re on the verge of a big announcement about how Last Band Standing will play out in the weeks ahead, but first I need someone to step up and coach- perhaps one of our regular voters, like Megan, Eileen or Joe. Mull it over while you’re listening to Game 5 match-ups.
As always, vote by commenting below before 11:59pm (EST) on Thursday. We’ve extended it a few hours to make up for last night’s Grooveshark problems. And now, Game 4 Results:
I’m On Fire (Bruce Springsteen) cruises past The Man Don’t Give A Fuck (Super Furry Animals), 106-73. This was an easy one for the Boss, who nets the series 2-2. The next SFA pick is huge, as Dem Adam would really like a 3-2 lead given the Boss’s powerful catalogue.
Street Fighting Man (Rolling Stones) squeaks past Wrong ‘Em Boyo (Clash), 96-92.5, to take a 3-1 series lead. This was a tough one for Cristina to lose, and it forces her to go call in her ace, Rock the Casbah. Meanwhile, Mike comes back with his 2nd #1 hit of the round, Brown Sugar.
Modern Love (David Bowie) edges out Bring It On Home To Me (Sam Cooke), 121-103, to even the series at 2-2. Both coaches have been tested in this battle, which could easily go the full seven games. I’m no excel whiz like Gmo, but I bet if you graphed the scores on these two you’d find a lot of high and low scores for David Bowie and a lot of 6s/7s for Sam Cooke. Grant comes out swinging for Game 5.
Call Me (Blondie) stomps The Crunge (Led Zeppelin), 119-83. Blondie staved off elimination with its go-to hit, and now trails 3-1. Look below for a real barnburner ahead in Game 5.
