@AndyShore This is the final match-up of round 2. I believe that Zack is still claiming to be the New Orleans Saints (one loss), and it seems that J-Ho is right there with him. I would be winning, if it wasn’t for @MattSilver actually having something to do when “Good Girl Go Bad” was up in round one. He would have had his minions of 13 year-old girls all over that vote. Shucks. As for today’s match-up, we see Flo Rida’s “Right Round” going up against Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.” This is the second straight day for Gaga on the bracket. It looks like Jay-Z and Alicia Keys may take her down, but we’ll see if she has what it takes to withstand Flo Rida.
“Right Round” – Flo Rida
@ZackTeibloom We start with those little “Wall-E” esque beeps and then a wash of sound with the chorus pumping right from the beginning. Flo Rida’s rapping so beat focused, he looks to say every word to completion on the beat. It’s infectious. Everyone from Cartman to Chris Walken may be singing “Pokerface” but, even when I’m playing poker, the Gaga never crosses my mind. “Right Round” takes a familiar hook and pumps some 2009 in it, creating an irresistible head-bobbing single. All of a sudden I wish I was watching the end of “The Hangover.” Or at a strip club. Maybe at a strip club with “The Hangover” playing?
“Poker Face” – Lady Gaga
@AndyShore Lady Gaga was so big this year, she cancelled a co-headlining tour with Kanye West. That’s self-proclaimed greatest artist on the planet, Kanye West. Gaga was simply too big for him. No song was bigger for Gaga in 2009 than “Poker Face.” She performed it at countless award shows, and it even got a sweet remix and music video from Kid Cudi, Kanye and Common. I broke down the catchiness in the music of “Poker Face” last round. Now I’m going to reiterate the fact that Christopher Walker performed it. It’s his most renown reading since The Raven, and who doesn’t know, “quote the raven, nevermore.”
