How is that a fair match though? For one of the underdogs to go one on one with a clear winner? Why even bother holding the vote?

Come on Droo, there is absolutely no way to make this 'fair' as everyone has different tastes and there are so many good songs. I voted for The Fly, but LOVE Dirty Day. I don't think the other one was fair, Zoo Station v's Mofo, but thats the way the cookie crumbles in these polls.

The fairest way would be to disregard songs like Streets, WOWY, Bad etc etc.

How do you explain the Mofo vs. Zoo Station matchup then? Both are very popular songs and clearly more fairly matched than this one.

Because Mofo is the number 16 seed and Zoo Station is the number 17 seed as voted by members of this forum.  The winner of that match will meet the winner of Match 1 in the next round.  Have you seen my post above?

I apparently didn't understand it. I'm not a numbers person.

LOVE Dirty Day and didn't vote for it. I should have waited and showed it more love.

Dirty Day's fantastic, but when I think of 'The Fly', I think of....The Fly.

Ouch. I'm guessing there's only 2 or 3 songs The Fly will lose to.
