@AndyShore I know it’s a few weeks past Thanksgiving at this point, but I can think of one more thing Zack is thankful for: that this is no longer the catchiest song contest. When my brother asked how LMFAO didn’t crack this year’s list, I told him it was because I feared Zack would never speak to me again. He had a hard enough time when I threw Lady Gaga his way, even though it was a song she’d done with Brian May. She landed herself a #1 seed for this year’s contest, along with Adele, M83 and Young the Giant. If you can’t guess which two Zack and I are each responsible for…you clearly don’t frequent these parts often. Without further adieu, I’m am pleased to introduce the brackets for this year’s Best Song of 2011.
Will the dedicated fans of Ezra Furman continue their support and knock out indie rock darlings Young the Giant? Will Caitlin ever talk to me again if the Foo Fighters upset the Drums? How many times will I accuse Zack of cheating? Stay tuned…
You can either email us your filled out bracket or do it line by line. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, December 12 at 3:00PM CST. We’ll pit each matchup against each other poll style and you are the voting public. Get your friends, family and social networking acquaintances to vote for your pick to click.
*Stepdad has been DQed from the bracket, due to the album release being early 2010. Our rule has always been that the album a song is on must have been released in 2011. We had a good time with Stepdad and their fans, and thank them for playing. Ezra Furman – “Mysterious Power” received the next higest vote count in the previous round and will replace Stepdad going forward.
If you’ve never done this and wanted to pick the favorites, your entry would look like this:
1: Adele, The Drums, Lady Gaga, The Black Keys, M83, Jay Z & Kanye, Justice, Young the Giant
2: Adele, Lady Gaga, M83, Young the Giant
3: Adele, Young the Giant
We’ll put together a prize package for the winner.
