PCT 2: Final Four!

The Cure…not holding up as well as their songs.

(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 .

For the Final Four picks, listen here and vote by commenting below by Midnight (EST) on Wednesday evening.   The Finals will commence Thursday morning, and run through Saturday.

    Killer Queen (Queen) vs. Man on Fire (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes) 9.0 vs 7.0

    Freddie is still king, or is it queen? Do like Man on Fire but Edward and the gang should ease off the tranquilizers just a little and show a little more emotion. I know it’s a dirty word but music needs its.

    Australia (Shins) vs. Just Like Heaven (Cure) 7.5 to 7.0. Toughy! But the Shins just got to me a little more.

    I would suggest you push this voting deadline back. I still don’t have power at home and only was able to vote today because I came into work.

    Australia (Shins) vs. Just Like Heaven (Cure) 5.5 – 5

    njjunior & Amanda B’s scores

    Killer Queen (Queen) 3 / 7
    Man on Fire (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes) 5.5 / 8

    Australia (Shins) 2 / 7
    Just Like Heaven (Cure) 7.8 / 9.5

  7. Mark B says:

    Killer Queen (Queen) 8
    Man on Fire (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes) 8.5
    Tough because they’re both so different – Killer Queen is so familiar and energetic while Man of Fire is much more of an offbeat slow-burner. For that reason, I think it might be a slightly better song.

    Australia (Shins) 7
    Just Like Heaven (Cure) 10
    Just Like Heaven is the song from this tournament that reminds me why I like these tournaments so much – I’d forgotten it existed, and how much I love it. Of these four, I think it should win hands down. Australia was a more recent fave of mine but side by side, it’s strong but ultimately just isn’t in the same league.
