    I'll just add that "Knocking Nails Into My House" was a cover of the Jeff Lynne original.

You can just picture The Beatles singing this song on Ed Sullivan. I don't wanna dismiss everything as being just a Beatles knock-off, but I'm just so flabbergasted by how flawlessly Apostrophe did this kind of song. This was the song I emailed my dad, and he was floored by it too. Very cool stuff.
    glad you liked it so much, haha, and your dad. pretty surprised that it didn't go on.

    haha N voted for the other song.

    As far as pairing 6 goes I really wouldn't mind either moving on and it's a shame one has to go.

    All the other pairings were fairly easy choices.

    Only 30 minutes left. One of the match-ups is currently tied, so get those last-second votes in!

    Don't make me find a tie-breaker.

    Thanks for breaking the tie. Even if it was too late to save my pick. But that would've looked super sketchy if you would've save it at the last second, so it's probably better that way.

    Round 2 Results

    1. George Harrison - Save The World (7) vs the bird and the bee - Love Letter To Japan (4)
    -"Love Letter to Japan" was nominated by @hammster.

    2. Sloan - Deeper Than Beauty (6) vs. They Might Be Giants - The Cap'm (5)
    -"The Cap'm" was nominated by @Jims. (obviously)

    3. Billy Holiday - Comes Love (6) vs. Gordon Lightfoot - Go-Go Round (5)
    -"Go-Go Round" was nominated by @Lionel Hutz

    4. Memory Cassette - Ghost in the Boombox (9) vs. Polaris - She is Staggering (2)
    -"She is Staggering" was nominated by @Ryan.

    5. Smashing Pumpkins - Galapogos (7) vs. Slade - Knocking Nails Into My House (4)
    -"Knocking Nails into My House" was nominated by @N Wilbury.

    6. Squirrel Nut Zippers - The Kraken (7) vs. Divine Comedy - A Lady of a Certain Age (4)
    -"A Lady of a Certain Age" was nominated by @hammster (tough round)

    As you can see, it was a very rough round for the mods. And N Wilbury too, I guess.

    And now for Round 3, the Semi-Finals! We're getting to the heavy favorite now, so pick carefully. Once again, I suggest listening to each match-up head-to-head to get a direct comparison between them.

    If any of you competitive folks are interested, the following folks are still in the running for the Supreme Bragging Rights (in alphabetical order): @cloneasaurus, @Frightened Inmate No. 2, @kupomog, @N Wilbury, @parklife, @Pops

    Round 3

    1.
    George Harrison - Save The World
    vs.
    Sloan - Deeper Than Beauty

    2.
    Billie Holiday - Comes Love
    vs.
    Memory Cassette - Ghost in the Boombox

    3.
    Smashing Pumpkins - Galapogos
    vs.
    Squirrel Nut Zippers - The Kraken

    The polls will close next Monday night at midnight (EST).

    I kinda wish I would've nominated some of the other more experimental/interesting songs by TMBG I was tossing around. I ended up going with "The Cap'm" because I didn't think we had enough upbeat music overall, and couldn't think of a more fast-paced song than that one. Also I thought it would be a decent reflection of my personal tastes (which leans more heavily toward the upbeat, airy, and frivolous).

    If anybody is curious, this was the winner of the tournament many years ago.

    I remember the band for the second-place winner was Dot Hacker, but I can't remember the song.

    so @Financial Panther do you dislike music or not? because it seems like you're way more interested than you put on.
