PCT II: Round of 64, Day 6

I am nothing short of shocked that this place is still standing. 2832 Humboldt Street.

Friends, the getting off schedule on this week is 100% my fault- apologies. I was on the conference circuit last weekend in Denver, spent Sunday barbecuing with old Biloxi transplant friends, and the LTD schedule got away from me. However, setting this up I think it was fortunate that Nos and I switched batting order for this week. This playlist is really hitting home for me on the heels of a nostalgic Sunday. Hope you enjoy it as well, and may the best songs advance. Playlist is here, and votes are due by Thursday, October 4th at 9:00 PM EST.

Baby Drugs (Tristen) vs. You And Me (Penny & The Quarters)

All Eyes On You (St. Lucia) vs. Hang Fire (The Rolling Stones)

First Light (My Morning Jacket) vs. Mama’s Eyes (Justin Townes Earle)

Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder) vs. Shine A Light (Wolf Parade)

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.

    Baby Drugs (Tristen) 7
    vs. You And Me (Penny & The Quarters) 8 Definitely a Blue Valentine bump. I kind of like the lo-fi quality. If this had been over produced it wouldn’t be as poignant.

    All Eyes On You (St. Lucia) 7 Fun in an Erasuresque sort of way.
    vs. Hang Fire (The Rolling Stones) 7 I’m pretty sure this song is about the 47%. Maybe Romney should adopt it.

    First Light (My Morning Jacket) 6
    vs. Mama’s Eyes (Justin Townes Earle) 6

    Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder) 7
    vs. Shine A Light (Wolf Parade) 7

    All Eyes On You (St. Lucia) vs. Hang Fire (The Rolling Stones) = 7.5:9

    First Light (My Morning Jacket) vs. Mama’s Eyes (Justin Townes Earle) = 6:3

  8. I was up all night writing and listening to this playlist on repeat, so these scores will either be the purest or the most cracked out.

    Baby Drugs (Tristen): 9
    You And Me (Penny & The Quarters): 7.7

    All Eyes On You (St. Lucia): 9
    Hang Fire (The Rolling Stones): 7.6

    First Light (My Morning Jacket): 6.5
    Mama’s Eyes (Justin Townes Earle): 9.5

    Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder): 6
    Shine A Light (Wolf Parade): 8

    (probably a deft combination of both)

  9. Mark B says:

    Baby Drugs (Tristen): 6.5
    You And Me (Penny & The Quarters): 7.5
    Funny how different pairings change my opinions of some songs. Pretty sure my scores from round 1 would have put Tristen ahead here – it’s fun but I think I’m more likely to remember You and Me

    All Eyes On You (St. Lucia): 10
    Hang Fire (The Rolling Stones): 5
    If there’s a hazy-disco track better than All Eyes On You out there, I’d love to hear it.

    First Light (My Morning Jacket): 4
    Mama’s Eyes (Justin Townes Earle): 8

    Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder): 5
    Shine A Light (Wolf Parade): 7

    This is a very good matchup- two talented female vocals.

    All Eyes On You (St. Lucia) vs. Hang Fire (The Rolling Stones): 6.6 : 9.2
    Really feeling Hang Fire today, kept turning it up

    First Light (My Morning Jacket) vs. Mama’s Eyes (Justin Townes Earle): 6.5 : 6
    Sleepy matchup.

    Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder) vs. Shine A Light (Wolf Parade): 7.5 : 7.3
    Wonder for the win, but Wolf hung in there.
