Basically, he takes all MG/B songs and matches them up against each other and we vote for which one we prefer, the winner of each match-up moves on and will face another winner in the next round.


It's like a tournament of MG/B songs, and when we are done we will be left with like a top 10 voted for songs, and one favourite pretty much.


I like it.

If you know anyone who has not yet voted, ask them what POSSIBLE reason they have for not voting.. hehe.. and no "I was abducted by space monkeys is not good enough.. becuase those monkeys would still have internet!*


I just do not want to eliminate Everything is Automatic or Born To Kill via a tiebreak. After the first round, we end up with some tougher battles, so to be kind to both songs, I'd prefer having another voter break the tie, rather than going by something based on luck.
