As we enter our third day, let me know how great it is to see some of the familiar faces from tournaments past, including people I only know through this forum. Good listening to tunes with you. Welcome to our newcomers as well. If you have any questions about scoring etiquette or other arcane rules, feel free to post your question or email me or Guillermo.
I try not to blur the lines between tournament host and fellow nominator, but I’ll start off by saying that I’m a little bummed out that my first nomination got placed against Bruce. Such is life. To win this tournament you need to win seven match-ups in a row, and that’s never easy. I also like that Ana Sun has a song called “Walk the Moon” and that it could battle Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon” in a potential Round of 32 showdown.
Here is today’s playlist. Votes are due at 8pm, Thursday.
Bali Eyes (Porno for Pyros) vs. Backstreets (Bruce Springsteen)
Pink Moon (Nick Drake) vs. Rocket Man (My Morning Jacket)
Stubborn Love (Lumineers) vs. When Something Wrong With My Baby (Sam and Dave)
Walk the Moon (Ana Sun) vs. We Play Music (Ed Solo and the Skool of Thought)
