Gasoline Dreams

Fixing a Hole

Videotape

Brain Damage

Mysterons

Spanish Bombs

You Never Give me Your Money

The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts

Again, "Brain Damage" is not a sure-thing, but it goes through another round uncontested. We'll see how long it lasts.

LCD Soundsystem - New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down
I really like the fact that this song is so "un-LCD". No sign of electro in there.

The Beatles - Fixing a Hole
This one is really about the mood you're in at the time of the listening. Today, I'm more Beatles than Joy Division

Radiohead - Videotape

Pink Floyd - Brain Damage - not even a contest there, not fond of that Talking Heads song.

Portishead - Mysterons

The Clash - Spanish Bombs

Arcade Fire - Une annee sans lumiere

Sufjan Stevens - The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts

I was thinking Candy's Room underperformed, but maybe New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down is just that strong. Good.

We have a good amount of participation this week; also, there are currently two ties. There are also a surprising amount of blowout matches for being round 3.
