REALLY CLOSE RESULTS THIS ROUND:
“Tiny Dancer” (Elton John) def. “The Joker” (Steve Miller Band), 118.7-92.9. Tiny Dancer with today’s high score. It’ll be heavily favored next round.
“Paradise” (John Prine) def. “Chicago” (Sufjan Stevens), 102.5-98.7.
“Train in Vain” (The Clash) def. “Wagon Wheel” (Old Crow Medicine Show), 117-116. The nostalgia songs ending up splitting 1-1 after this brutally close match-up. I think this is the deepest a Clash song has gone in a major tournament.
“In My Life” (The Beatles) def. “Valerie” (Amy Winehouse w/ Mark Ronson), 110.7-110.1. This was perhaps the closest match of the tournament so far! Don’t let anyone tell you that every vote doesn’t count. I’ll admit I’m bummed, was a big Valerie fan! Also no more women left in the tournament.
