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 '80s and the '00s!

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 '80s AND the '00s. Take a look at Scott and Kathleen with our cool bracket wall and see the full list of contestants.

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

'80s BRACKET

1 vs 8 Toni Basil - Mickey vs T'Pau - Heart & Soul

 

12 vs 13 Patti Austin & James Ingram - Baby, Come To Me vs Nena - 99 Luftballoons

 

3 vs 11 Bertie Higgins - Key Largo vs Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen

 

10 vs 15 Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock - It Takes Two vs Bobby McFerrin - Don't Worry Be Happy

 

 

'00s BRACKET

 

1 vs 9 Jimmy Eat World - The Middle vs Shaggy - It Wasn't Me

 

4 vs 13 Macy Gray - I Try vs Nine Days - Absolutely (Story Of A Girl)

 

6 vs 14 Afroman - Because I Got High vs Fountains Of Wayne - Stacy's Mom

 

2 vs 10 Gnarls Barkley - Crazy vs Hoobastank - The Reason

 

Good luck to all the one-hit wonders and have fun voting! We'll be back on Monday for a Music Monday look at some of the brackets the writers made (and how bad they got) and then return on Wednesday for the announcement of the SOLVENT 16! YOU CAN'T STOP THE MADNESS, PEOPLE!

Let us just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. Next stop: The Solvent 16! And coming on Friday The Final 8!
