Royal Rumble, Game 5: Bono Never Says Die

Completely stoked- older woman in the front

Facing elimination, U2 went with its famous ode to Martin Luther King, Jr. and fought to compete for one more day. However, it wasn’t a complete victory for the Irish, as Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times, Bad Times” took the gold with 99.8 points. “Pride (In The Name of Love)” grabs the silver (87.4 points), while the Beach Boys surfs off course into their first strike. “Let Him Run Wild” pulls a paltry 57.5 points- let’s hope Coach Janos can draw up some fancy X’s and O’s during the break for his boys. Current standings:

Beach Boys: X
Led Zeppelin: X
U2: X X

Game 5 coming right up. U2 still a game from elimination, but if they can stay alive there’ll be another band in that position next time. What will happen? Only time will tell, but there should be an #MD5 voting block tomorrow. Songs are here, and votes are due by Monday, June 4th at 5:00 PM. Good luck to all, and good luck to all marathoners!

Royal Rumble: Game Five
Led Zeppelin- “Tangerine”
U2- “Desire”
The Beach Boys: “Don’t Worry Baby”

About g-mo

The day I was born, Michael Jackson's Thriller album was at the top of the Billboard 200. I've been trying my best to live up to that expectation ever since.

    Tangerine- 7. I didn’t really know this song well but watching Almost Famous again last weekend reminded me that it existed, and listening to it now I’m into it, especially the country flourishes.
    Desire- 6.5- Like the Bo Diddley beat and the chorus, Bono makes it rough to get through. A pretty good song on a bloated album.
    Don’t Worry Baby- 8.5. One of the best early Beach Boys songs and totally timeless, at least to me.

    Tangerine 7.5 – I’d kind of forgotten about this song too. A very pleasant reminder.
    Desire 5.5 – Should have ranked higher maybe, but U2 is beginning to wear on me.
    Don’t worry baby 8.6 – Never fails.

    Tangerine 7.6 This hits the spot, as I’m still recovering from Marathon Day.
