There is a huge gap between my #10 and #11 in the week. More than usual the songs are a mix between the great and the mediocre/ bad.

7. Barrington Levy - Here I Come vs. 8. The Vaccines - Post Break-Up Sex
Post Break-Up Sex is great, but I prefer the bigger pleasures of Here I Come (was this match-up always meant to be something of a double entendre?).

6. X-Ray Spex - Germ Free Adolescents vs. 12. Stone Temple Pilots - Vasoline
Wacky punk girls for the win!

1. Nina Simone - Sinnerman vs. 2. Damien Rice - The Blower's Daughter
:( Sinnerman is as close as a default winner a game like this gets. Still, despite the greatness of the Damien Rice song I can't deny Sinnerman.

3. Queen - Don't Stop Me Now vs. 4. Kristin Hersh - Your Ghost
:( I almost feel bad for voting for Don't Stop Me Now, probably the song in this whole game that least of all needs any further exposition. Besides, Your Ghost is great. Nonetheless, I don't do strategic voting and Don't Stop Me Now is my favorite Queen track as well as one of the great feelgood songs.

10. Delta 5 - Mind Your Own Business vs. 13. Tocotronic - Jackpot
Wacky punk girls for the win!

9. Pigbag - Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag vs. 16. ABBA - Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! captures a lot what annoys me about ABBA, while Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag is simply good fun. An easy choice.

14. Florence + The Machine - Ship to Wreck vs. 5. Motorhead - Overkill
I wonder if I'd like the Florence song more if the main line ("Did I build this ship to wreck?") just sounded better. There is something clumsy about it. Is it grammatically sound? Whatever, nothing Florence + The Machine did is as far as I know better than the aptly named Overkill. I love how that song seems to end twice only to go ahead anyway in great fury.

11. Mano Negra - King Kong Five vs. 15. Christina Aguilera - Beautiful
Beautiful is not my cup of tea and although King Kong Five isn't the most memorable song of the week, it is still an easy win.

Barrington Levy - Here I Come
Stone Temple Pilots - Vasoline
Nina Simone - Sinnerman (Sinnerman looks like the obvious favorite for the tournament, though it will probably face one of its most serious opponents next week. The Blower's Daughter is a lovely song nonetheless)
Queen - Don't Stop Me Now
Delta 5 - Mind Your Own Business
Pigbag - Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag
Motorhead - Overkill (though the original version should be considered for the poll, some live versions as well as the one rerecorded for, I think, a Rock Band or Guitar Hero game, pack even more punch. Production value weighs down the original a bit)
Christina Aguilera - Beautiful

Kristin Hersh - Your Ghost

Delta 5 - Mind Your Own Business
vs.
Tocotronic - Jackpot
pass

Pigbag - Papa's Got a Brand New Pigbag

Not sure I follow you. I have nothing against "Don't Stop Me Now", but "Your Ghost" was my nomination.

It had to upset someone ;) I find it such a terrible drudge of a song, from the first milli seconds to the god awful never ending...well...end. A million miles from the pure energy of Sinnerman. I despised Rice's song from my first listen, it was a real challenge to listen to it all again.
I am sorry for this ;)

Oh, I got that. I also know you’ve been championing Your Ghost for a long time, so I figured you would vote for it.
