(Because Hurricane Sandy has wreaked havoc on the coast, and knocked out many peoples’ power, including mine, voting will be extended until 11:59pm (EST) on Sunday. Hopefully that will be enough time to get votes in.)
What better way to kick back during the biggest Atlantic storm of our lifetimes than rock out to four excellent tunes? First, let’s recap what happened in the Elite 8.
Killer Queen (Queen) def. Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise (The Avett Brothers), 87.3-73.7. Queen extends its music tournament record to a staggering 31-3.
Man on Fire (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes) def. Get Rhythm (Johnny Cash), 89.7-69.3. The bottom fell out for Cash, as he gets blown out by the Zeroes, who post the highest average of the semi-finals.
Australia (The Shins) def. Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder), 77.9-71.2. The Shins are solid, but post the lowest score out of the Final Four in knocking out Stevie Wonder.
Just Like Heaven (The Cure) def. Your Love (The Outfield), 87.5-75.3 .
