@ZackTeibloom This is my favorite round two match-up and not just because Jack White is involved. It’s the break-out star of 2012 in Frank Ocean vs my favorite living artist who finally put out a solo album and showed what he can do when in complete control. Frank Ocean has found a way to appeal to everyone, and that isn’t meant to be a bi-sexual joke. He’s just quite lovable, racking up six Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year. But he’ll have to beat Jack White in that category as well. I can’t wait to see who comes out on top here, even if we’re posting it on a Sunday night the night before NYE. We’ll let this run until it’s suit-up o’clock tomorrow, post a round 2 re-cap, and then start the final four on Tuesday. I’m just glad the tradition of not getting to our finals before the new year starts continues. But honestly I’ll only be truly content if Jack moves on.
@AndyShore I think the only shot at me still winning in our bracket, is for Jack White to be defeated here. So…I beg of you, Internet trolls. Send Jack White packing. He’s had a good enough year. I think it’s fitting that these two songs face one another in this round. “Thinking About You” could very easily be the baby making music this New Years eve that leads to some Virgos down the road. “Sixteen Saltines” is more likely to be the song that’s fueling you through the start of the night. While, everyone is looking to have fun and rock out of New Years Eve…eyes on the prize, people. I hope all of you get to the point in your night tomorrow when it’s time to put on Frank Ocean. Godspeed.
@ZackTeibloom Jack White did everything I ever wanted him to do this year. It was nice to see him do things like produce and play with everyone from Wanda Jackson to Insane Clown Posse, but Jack White belongs front and center singing and playing guitar solos. We’re there. Let’s honor it and hope he stays in this stage of his career as long as possible. More tours! More albums! More guitar solos!
