It's time for Round Two in our month-long Music Madness event! Just to recap, we've created four brackets ('70s, '80s, '90s and '00s) and picked sixteen one-hit wonders for each one. Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday in March, you'll be able to vote via our Facebook page. You've all been nailing that part so far, and you've narrowed the field down to 32 candidates. Today we're voting on the '70s and the '90s!

Of course the brackets closed last week, but you can still enjoy gawking at everyone else's brackets in this thread. Some of those guessers might just win a real trophy at the end of this thing. You can find out what they all stand for on the master list right here.

Today's face-offs include the hits of the '70s AND the '90s. Take a look at Scott and Kathleen with our cool bracket wall and see the full list of contestants.

Already know the songs by heart? Go vote across two decades! Need a refresher? No worries, we've got the head-to-head happening below.

'70s BRACKET

 

1 vs 9 Van McCoy - The Hustle vs Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music >

 

4 vs 12 Elvin Bishop - Fooled Around And Fell In Love vs Nick Gilder - Hot Child In The City

 

6 vs 14 Argent - Hold Your Head Up vs Cheryl Lynn - Got To Be Real

 

7 vs 15 Vicki Lawrence - The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia vs King Harvest - Dancing In The Moonlight

 

 

'90s BRACKET

 

1 vs 9 Biz Markie - Just A Friend vs Chumbawumba - Tubthumping

 

12 vs 13Duncan Sheik - Barely Breathing vs Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy

 

3 vs 11The Proclaimers - 500 Miles vs Wreckx-n-Effect - Rump Shaker

 

2 vs 10 Divinyls - I Touch Myself vs The Heights - How Do You Talk To An Angel?

 

Good luck to all the one-hit wonders. It's do or die in the voting! Oh, and before we go, here are the results of the voting on The '00s to wrap up Round One!

  • Jimmy Eat World - The Middle beats Just Stand Up
  • Shaggy - It Wasn't Me beats Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)
  • Macy Gray - I Try beats Heaven
  • Nine Days - Absolutely (Story Of A Girl) beats Party Like A Rock Star
  • Afroman - Because I Got High beats Inside Your Heaven
  • Fountains Of Wayne - Stacy's Mom beats Teenage Dirtbag
  • Hoobastank - The Reason beats Bad Day
  • Gnarls Barkley - Crazy beats Ridin'

One or two upsets, but pretty much as we all expected, right? Vote today for 70s and 90s and be back here on Friday for the results, as well as the second part of round two. BRING IT

Let us just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. Next stop: '80s vs '00s!

Dang it... I got 2/8 correct on that round. Was hoping to blank out that side of the bracket.

Luckily I have both of them losing next round, so I can't get any more correct on that side.

So, my total correct votes will either be 4 or 5 (out of 63 possible).

I got 6 correct this time; however, my overall winning pick has now been eliminated. I am officially toasted and will end up in the middle of the pack.
Congrats to Aardwolf on coming in last place.
In the name of good sportsmanship, or some shit like that, I will stay tuned to see who wins.

Once again, 4 right, 4 wrong.

This is getting weird...every single decade, I am at 50% - what are the odds? Someone who went to math college - quick - do that math!

I don't do this well in the basketball thingy.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

It's complicated... Every choice isn't equally likely to occur. Some songs are liked more than others. If the odds of each were actually 50/50, then it's fairly likely that you would get close half of them correct even if you just consistently chose the first of the two.

So, congratulations!

Hey deb, there's this lottery coming up and .... (never mind). Congrats on your 21st century score!

My unofficial recap:
70's - 6 out of 8, 80's - 7/8, 90's - 6/8, 00's - 6/8

Like Scott, I was a victim of some upsets. Also, I would have gotten 2 more right if I had voted with my head instead of heart. Just saying, not complaining. 😎
