Last Band Standing: Wonder seeks the higher ground, trio face elimination

Before Rolling Stone wasted space slamming Dartmouth College

Now that Led Zeppelin has been crowned champion, it eagerly awaits the opportunity to defend its title.  Enter Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon.  Stevie goes for the series win this weekend.  Listen here and vote by commenting before 8pm Tuesday (EST).   I’m giving an extra long voting session, with Joy Division and the Who also facing elimination, and me transitioning the administration over Guillermo.

I Know What I Know (Paul Simon) vs. Stevie Wonder (Higher Ground)

Thunderstruck (AC/DC) vs. Squeeze Box (Who)

Disorder (Joy Division) vs. The Story of My Life (Velvet Underground)

And last call for new coaches this weekend.

    Stunned by my score on thunderstruck… i guess it’s just overplayed and harder to listen to when not at a game or out drinking.

    8 : 8.3
    With Paul looking he’s in trouble, I’m a little bummed we didn’t get to hear Obvious Child. The lyrics on Graceland continue to be perfect. Unfortunately, this is one of Stevie’s finest.

    Liked Squeeze Box more than I thought I would. Unfortunately, I can’t dissociate Thunderstruck from business school ice hockey practices in the Whale. Which were awesome.
