A lot of our coaches dumped their ho-hum stuff over the weekend, but we have some great tunes going tonight. Listen here, and vote by commenting below before midnight on Wednesday. Also, just wanted to note that my indoor soccer team pulled off a huge upset, toppling the #1 seed in the Lawyers League soccer play-offs.
Game 3 Results
When the Levee Breaks (Led Zeppelin) def. Born in the USA (Bruce Springsteen), 122.9-122.7. Thanks to Gmo for catching my tabulation error- my spreadsheet is at the office, and my mental math skills have declined since their glory days of the early 90s. Led Zeppelin now leads 2-1 in the series after a fierce Monday evening comeback.
Graceland (Paul Simon) def. Big Brother (Stevie Wonder), 110-90.5. Stevie Wonder still leads the series 2-1. For inquiring minds, Simon & Garfunkel tracks are not permitted, but Paul Simon is entitled to cover songs he wrote for the duo per tournament rules, which explains the Game 4 nomination.
What’s Next to the Moon (AC/DC) def. My Generation (Who), 105-100. Salem knows he’s in trouble, and goes to a big gun for Game 4.
5-8-6 (New Order) def. Murder Mystery (Velvet Underground), 73-64.5. Both artists actually did much better on Monday than they did over the weekend. Velvet finds itself down 2-1, and turns to Sweet Jane, its most well-known radio song.

Bonus quote of the day: “Once introducing himself to Bob Dylan at an L.A. party, Peter Grant offered a warm handshake. ‘I’m Peter Grant, manager of Led Zeppelin,’ he said. Dylan replied, ‘I don’t come to you with my problems, do I?’ It was the only time I’d ever seen Grant at a loss for words.”
