The field is getting more scattered already. The songs were:
- Song 106: The Four Tops - I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch). Real classic song, and a really cool one at that. Much like Beethoven's Frühling sonata, you can't help but being in a better mood after having heard this tune. That's where the comparison to LvB ends, though. If you like this song and want to hear some more, I suggest you check out "Build Me Up Buttercup" by The Foundations - another late 60's classic.
- Song 107: Chris Isaak - Wicked Game. Speaking of wicked, there's one note which is SO not in the pocket in my recording.........I can't even claim that it's merely syncopated, that's how out of sync it is. Damn. Anyhoo; personally I never could stand this song, or pretty much any song which invokes the ultracreepy Twin Peaks mood......spooky.
- Song 108: Eminem - Lose Yourself. From the 8 Mile soundtrack - great movie; you oughta' check it out if you haven't already. Em's lyrical talent mixed in with some "Eye Of The Tiger"-esque guitar riffing - it works.
- Song 109: Europe - Rock The Night. Never really liked this Europe song, but it was a big hit and it moved crowds, so we played it every now and then. One of the weakest songs on "TFC" in my opinion.
- Song 110: Bryan Adams - Run To You. Instantly recognizable song from the Canadian Springsteen. Playing the guitar parts on this song gets boring in a hurry though. The things one used to do in order to sneak in some original tunes between cover songs...
One contestant reigned supreme (feel free to insert a Slayer reference here if you've got the inclination) in this round, had everyone else hang on the ropes and crushed any hope they might have had of surpassing him this time around. Who it was? Check out the Score for Round 2:
- Anders (10 points)
- Cathy/Sondre (tied at 8 points)
- Pigeon (2 points)
The Grand Poobah, The Total Score Now stands as:
- Anders/Sondre (tied at 14 points)
- Cathy (12 points)
- Pigeon (6 points)
Congrats to Anders for clawing his way up in the world, and good luck with Round 3!
