Game 7 Results
Safe European Home (Clash) edges out Sympathy for the Devil (Rolling Stones), 165.8-154.6. Though this was always going to be a close Game 7, you could probably categorize the Clash’s series win over the Rolling Stones as an upset. The Clash will go on to face Bruce Springsteen. Much thanks to Midnight Mike for his Stones coaching. The key stat Mike probably didn’t expect: after scoring above an “8” with four out of the first five voters, Sympathy got an “8” from only one of the remaining seventeen voters.
Helden (David Bowie) took out God Bless The Child (Sam Cooke), 137.7-114.1. Hats off to a great run by Sam and Lindsay. Some people were second-guessing her game 7 pick, but that’s the tricky part of this tournament- you need to play to win without blowing all of your top songs in the first round. Grant and Bowie will be taking on Led Zeppelin starting tonight, and we’ll see how much gas in the tank they have left. Since Bowie has like a dozen hit albums, they should be alright.
Kodachrome (Paul Simon) built an early lead against Monday Morning (Fleetwood Mac), winning 140.2-128.6. Paul Simon leads the series 1-0.
I Wish (Stevie Wonder) came out blazing, and smoked Arlandria (Foo Fighters) 158.2-115.8, to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
