Decades Feeder Bracket - 1999 Final 4
« on: January 11, 2018, 07:07:07 PM »
This is kind of a YayBoo moment for me.  Yay!  Two of the Top 5 seeds are still in!  Boo :( The absolute last two seeds are in.  Thankfully, regardless of the seeding, they are all good songs.  And we owe it all to you for choosing them.  (I was actually the lone vote for Eminem and one of two votes for Lou Bega (showing how much I truly despise American Woman ;) )).  Anyways, thank you all for voting and have at!


The 5/16





The 3/15



And the One Song to Rule Them All is Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones

How the fuck is American Woman still in this?  The original one was crap.  Lenny's remake was worse.  But it knocks off Californication and gets a gimme against Lou FucktardBega to stick around?

"Smooth" is a helluva song, one of those tunes that people would sing along to when it came on the radio. Personally, I think you way under-seeded it. Has a 16 come back to win top spot yet? This might, maybe be the one.

Nice to see you lose your cool, Chief.  Never would have expected that over music.

There's a thread for that ;)

Being underseeded is the problem with doing matchups the way I do, looking for similar sounding songs/styles/popularity.  It's happened quite a few times actually.  Just a bit more prominent the last two weeks as I have done badly in the seeding.

I'm far more rational about politics than music
