Opening Tracks and Radio Songs: Day 9

Bowie_ModernLoveThe second round begins today! It always bears reminding that in every music tournament, the end of the first round represents the halfway point for the tournament as a whole.   Today we have four first-rate match-ups, and if anyone was doubting the power of the 80s, that’s where six of our eight songs are from (the other two are from ’78 and ’94) . Votes are due by Monday, March 11th at 11:00 PM EST. Playlist is herefull rules and philosophy here, and the tournament bracket is here. Results from Day 8 forthcoming. See you in the comments!

Best Track One, Side One

“Where the Streets Have No Name” (U2, Joshua Tree) vs. “My Name is Jonas” (Weezer, Blue Album)

“Debaser” (Pixies, Doolittle) vs. “Modern Love” (David Bowie, Let’s Dance)

Best Song About The Radio

“Radio Free Europe” (R.E.M) vs. “Radio” (Eazy E)

Update, Day 8 Results: Some close ones to finish up our first round. Only song with a comfortable win was “Come Together,” which eliminates “Rehab” 77-61.8. Elvis put up a great fight but “What’s Going On” advances with a 67.8-65.1 win. For the radio songs, Donna Summer’s “On The Radio” takes it over The Bird and the Bee 47-45.5. And lastly, a surprise win from NOFX who “Please Play This Song On The Radio” triumphs over Rancid 50.9-46.5.
