So to decide the World Cup of songs I took the team who came in first in their group and gave them their first song, and the teams in second their second song. Therefore we now have a very scientific bracket of the best World Cup tune. Here is the latest:
Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand by The Beatles (
Poor Places by Wilco (
My Way by Frank Sinatra (
Obviously 5 Believers by Bob Dylan (
This sets up a Sinatra vs. Dylan showdown. Let’s get ready to rumble.
On the other side of the bracket we have:
London Calling by The Clash (
The Great Pretender by The Platters (
This sets up the Platters vs. the Clash. You gotta figure the Clash can whoop the platters. We’ll see.
Samba Tranquille by Thievery Corporation (
French Vacation by The Walkmen (France) win out over Summer Time by Josh Rouse (
Now we have an intriguing matchup of chill (Thievery Corporation) vs. high intensity (Walkmen). Both are bands from the DC area making the rivalry even more intense.
I just hope Italy loses.
