And a new dawn rises- ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the 2nd Annual People’s Choice Tournament. 128 songs enter, 1 song leaves. We ended up with around 140 nominations, and cut songs that we thought were too popular or didn’t fit the feel of the tourney. Sorry for those who lost nominations, but the remaining field looks fantastic and everyone that nominated has at least a song in the tourney. In the least, we’ll learn about new music from our worthy peers- which is the whole point of this thing in the first place. Playlist can be accessed at this link– gentlemen and ladies, let’s do this.
Rules: Listen to each match-up and give each song a score between 0 and 10 based on how it did versus its competitor. Here’s an example of how a set of scores might look:
Song 1: 7.5
Song 2: 6.5
I liked Song 1, but it fell from an 8.5 at the bridge- went too long. Song 2 was ok, but nothing special. Still catchy enough to land a 6.5.
Anyways, when you’ve completed all 4 match-ups, post your scores as a comment on this post. Get your scores in by 8 pm on Tuesday, August 28th. At that point we will tally and announce winners.
On a side note, it’s been a while since we’ve done a free for all like this, and I am genuinely excited. I watched Battle Royale at 6 AM this morning- what a terrifyingly crazy movie, but as it relates here, I got excited about the parallels. 128 songs enter, 1 song leaves that survives 7 rounds. Best of luck to all songs, vote with your hearts. Let’s do this.
