Alright, Guillermo here back in the driver’s seat for the next two. Having fun yet? I actually really like the set up of this tournament- it’s the equivalent of having A sides and B sides to a record (no offense to the radio songs, but you know what I mean.)
When we do switches we may have to do separate results and new tourney posts so bear with us. Today’s set of songs is fun- Janos pre-determined a bit what we’d do for the weekend match-ups, but he knew what I was going to go to as the lead off when I had my turn (for those of you that know my taste, not rocket science.) Plus we’ve got the 16 seed-17 seed battle in this set and a battle of big deal rap icons. Great weekend music here, take advantage!
Update: Results From Day 2. Nothing close on the radio side- “Video Killed The Radio Star” trounces “Make Me Lose Control” 56.06-38.5, while “Spirit of the Radio” does a similar job on “Turn Up The Radio” 61.85-44.4. The Side Ones were a little closer, but no upsets to report. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” eliminates “Handle With Care” 66.5-62.4. Jay-Z almost pulls a sneaker on “Purple Haze” but falls short as Jimi Hendrix takes it 64.1-63.5.
Thunder Road (Bruce Springsteen- Born To Run) vs. My Cherie Amour (Stevie Wonder- My Cherie Amour)
Wanna Be Startin’ Something (Michael Jackson- Thriller) vs. Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash- At Folsom Prison)
Roadrunner (The Modern Lovers) vs. Radio Retaliation (Thievery Corporation)
I Can’t Live Without My Radio (LL Cool J) vs. Radio (Eazy E)
