Photo finish! Thanks to all the voters that plugged their opinions, and it’s so nice to see some old recognizable handles back on the site. Without further ado:
High score goes to AC/DC and “It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock And Roll)”- voters could just not get enough of those bagpipes and it showed in the scores. Van Halen’s “Running With The Devil” is eliminated, 123.85-116.8.
The rest of our match-ups were all close at a point but all winners come out with at least a 2 point lead. “Lust For Life” defeats “Holidays In The Sun,” 115.1-112.9. Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” defeats “Seven Nation Army,” 119.8-117.3. And last, Peter Gabriel blows an early lead as “Red Rain” falls to Paul Simon’s “Boy In The Bubble,” 115.7-112.1.
