Gotta step up the voter numbers! Although there are still 3 1/2 hours left to vote on this round we are definitely a little low right now- tell your neighbors and tell your friends we want their votes!
The big winner of the day was “My Name Is Jonas”- we don’t have a Wall of 10’s yet, but maybe we should so we can put Weezer up there. “Loser” never had a chance and falls 79-70.5. Similarly the Traveling Wilbury’s didn’t have too much trouble with “Talking About A Revolution,” and “Handle With Care” takes that one 68.3-57.2. The other matches were too close to call at 5:00 PM…
….but 8 pm brings us home. An impressive comeback by “Tamacun” who outlasts The Flaming Lips 63.2-58.5. Last but not least- oof. Closest match yet, but “Welcome To The Jungle” ekes it out 70.1-69.8.
We’ve gotten from 48 songs down to 36 still alive- one last round of play-in before we’ve got our Round of 32 Best Track Ones. Playlist is here and votes are due by Friday, February 15th at Midnight. Good luck to all songs!
