Round 1 Catchiest Song Contest Wrap-up

Share/Bookmark
Posted by teibs On December - 17 - 2009

Bracket2@ZackTeibloom Cinderella stayed home this year. All the top seeds moved on except for a slight upset of “Birthday Sex” over “We Made You.” I’d like to think that I swung that upset with my preposterous morning after pill argument and comeback rule, but odds are you’re just sick of Eminem. Unless you followed your indie-rock heart, you did quite well in round 1 (sorry, Laura and Joanne.)

Don’t fret, though. Last year Zelin went 6/8 in the first round and still won it all, so there’s hope for almost all of you. Points are worth one point in round one, so look for your name* and the score. Points double next round, so make sure to vote, and please spread the word. I gotta say, it would be nice to see a few more tweets and Facebook status updates alerting people to vote. How about this: We’ll throw in a prize to whoever hypes the contest the best in the next couple weeks. And we’ll make it a good one…

If you’re looking at this and freaking out because you don’t have a way to play vinyl, maybe this can be your rock and roll hall of fame moment. About 5 years ago I went to the hall and there happened to be a massive convention going on. I didn’t own a record player, but they were selling Beatles albums for a buck! I bought about 40 albums and decided I’d just wait until I got one. Make vinyl your friend.

Huge thank you to Mikela and Filter for being so generous with the prize package! Check out their awesome best-of ’09 lists where they get artists to give their two cents on best albums of the year.

*I decided to post the names by addressing the men by their last name and women by their first name. Not sure why I did it, but it seems to be a pretty common thing. Most guys call their guy friends by their last name, but it’s rare to call a girl by her last name. Is it because girls’ last names often change when they get married? Also, you ever notice how a girl can call a guy by his last name, but not when they’re hooking up. Then you gotta go first name.
