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.

  6. Mark B says:

    Thinkin’ Bout Something (Hanson) 6
    Babylon (David Grey) 9
    I think I like Babylon so much because British radio stations indoctrinated us all with it for years when it was released – I am powerless to resist. The other song left me craving some sweet MmmmBop

    Classy Girls (Lumineers) 7
    Little Bit of Everything (Dawes) 7.25
    Could have gone either way for me. Slight mood-related edge to Dawes

    Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf) 5
    Just Like Heaven (The Cure) 9.5
    Magic Carpet ride lacks substance for me – feels like it’s missing a layer or something. I could listen to Just Like Heaven all day

    Shine Blockas (Big Boi) 6
    Foundations (Kate Nash) 7
    Fun fact: the vast majority of Brits have accents that are more Kate Nash than Prince William

    8- Thinkin’ Bout Something (Hanson) vs.
    6- Babylon (David Grey)
    Thinkin’ Bout Something is even more impressive when I consider that it came from the MMMBop crew.

    6- Classy Girls (Lumineers) vs.
    9- Little Bit Of Everything (Dawes)
    Love this Dawes song and didn’t get a chance to sing its praises last round.

    7- Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf) vs.
    8- Just Like Heaven (Cure)
    The beginning of Magic Carpet Ride is so. good. Most even matchup of the day for me.

    6- Shine Blockas (Big Boi) vs.
    5- Foundations (Kate Nash)
    Not very excited about either. Not bad, just not as amazing as the other three matchups.

    Thinkin’ Bout Something (Hanson) vs. Babylon (David Grey): 6 / 8
    Not usually a David Grey fan, but was really feeling this today.

    Classy Girls (Lumineers) vs. Little Bit Of Everything (Dawes): 7.5 : 5.5
    The Lumineers are the breakout group of the tournament for me.
    The Dawes are kind of channeling “I saw the lights go down on Broadway”, no?

    Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf) vs. Just Like Heaven (Cure): 7 / 8.6
    Carpet Ride never gets old, but the Cure came blasting out of my speakers this sunny afternoon.

    Shine Blockas (Big Boi) vs. Foundations (Kate Nash): 6 : 7.8

    Very strong division!

  11. Lindsay says:

    Thinkin’ Bout Something (Hanson) vs. Babylon (David Grey)
    9/7.5
    I’m so glad you guys like my Hanson nomination! I almost didn’t submit this song because, hellow, it is HANSON and that’s kind of embarrassing for girl my age. But this song is awesome and as a good Oklahoman, I just had to share it with the rest of the world.

    Classy Girls (Lumineers) vs. Little Bit Of Everything (Dawes)
    6.5/6

    Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf) vs. Just Like Heaven (Cure)
    6.75/8

    Shine Blockas (Big Boi) vs. Foundations (Kate Nash)
    6.5/7

  12. Elizabeth Baumann says:

    Thinkin’ Bout Something (Hanson) – 7.5
    Babylon (David Grey) –8.5
    David Gray…I don’t know why but he gets it… David Gray this guy gets it.

    Classy Girls (Lumineers) – 8 (they are from CO…me too…I had to give a bit of a bonus)
    Little Bit Of Everything (Dawes) – 7…..like.

    Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf) – 8.75
    Just Like Heaven (Cure) – 8
    I mean both of these are so catchy it almost isn’t fair.

    Shine Blockas (Big Boi) – 6.5
    Foundations (Kate Nash)-7

  13. G/C

    Thinkin’ Bout Something (Hanson) 7.2 / 6.75
    Babylon (David Grey) 9.1 / 6

    G: I’ve never heard the album version of this song before (Babylon), there is a better one but this is ok for what it is (i.e. better than Hanson)

    Classy Girls (Lumineers) 7.2 / 6
    Little Bit Of Everything (Dawes) 10 / 8

    G: I can’t remember the last time I listened to the words of a song that closely on the edge of my couch. Not sure if this will sound disingenuous in future rounds, but first 10 of the tourney for me.

    Magic Carpet Ride (Steppenwolf): 7 / 7.5
    Just Like Heaven (Cure) 9.1 / 5.75

    G: The experimental breakdown in MGR really loses steam for me.

    Shine Blockas (Big Boi) 7 / 7
    Foundations (Kate Nash) 7 / 8
