PCT II: Round of 64, Day 7

A tense time to be in New York, for sure…

Hip-hop titans and a medley of folk, rock and 80s will lead us towards the weekend.  Is it the end of the line for Bruce Springsteen?  How will heart-throb Bon Iver fare? In the first round all of these songs did well, but none stood out as potential threats to go all the way.  We’ll see if that changes here.   Listen here and vote by commenting below before 8pm (EST) Friday.

What’s My Name? (Snoop Dogg) vs. Big Pimpin’ (Jay-Z feat. UGK)

Invisible Leader (Fucked Up) vs. Skinny Love (Bon Iver)

Johnny Come Lately (Steve Earle) vs. Someone Great (LCD Soundsystem)

American Skin (41 Shots) (Bruce Springsteen) vs. Your Love (Outfield)

    Not to get to heavy, but what does one do with their daily life and why do they do it?

    Johnny Come Lately (Steve Earle) vs. Someone Great (LCD Soundsystem) = 7 to 9

    American Skin (41 Shots) (Bruce Springsteen) vs. Your Love (Outfield) = 7.5 to 7.5
    Such a heavy song vs. such a fun song. Tough.

    I can’t listen to Snoop with a straight face. I don’t know what that means but – whether it means I love it, hate it, or think it’s ridiculous – this song makes me feel something or other which is what it’s all about, right?

    vs. Skinny Love (Bon Iver) 10
    Agree with jacob on the invisible leader commentary – wish Invisible Leader kept going down the track it starts on

    Snoop takes me back to I think 93 or 94. College and post college life was awesome, minus the fact that every girl was convinced that they were going to get AIDS if they had sex.

    Despite having gone to a pretty well-known rigorous public magnet high school in the DC area, there was a very big loophole in my AP/IB Calculus curriculum junior year. Somehow it was ok to structure our 2nd semester final grades to be half dependent on the sum of your coursework, quizzes, and final exam…and half on a creative project about Calculus. Naturally, three of my friends and I rewrote the words to “Big Pimpin'” to be “Big Calcin’,” including lines like “Big Calcin, dx, dt check it out now, big Calcin’ in Room 103 it’s just that Paul, Sean, Will, Gabe, and Miss Y-A-N-G”

    Miss Yang was thrilled, my A+ in rapping averaged against my C- in actual understanding of calculus for a high-flying B, and minus a confused foray into Math 8 my Freshman Fall for a week, never took a Calculus class again.

    The more into autumn we get, the higher Bon Iver’s scores will get for me. This is an orange leaves by a lake with a scarf and thoughts on your mind song, ah jeez. Is Invisible Leader a punk version of Ballroom Blitz?

    Someone Great (LCD Soundsystem) 7.5

    Steve’s served his purpose I think. LCD Soundsystem songs- growing on me since I started hearing them in these tournaments.

    Your Love (Outfield) 7.2

    Close, 80s by a hair.
