The Fantastically Fabulous Round 1 Recap!
Round 1 of the first annual .info Tournament of Tunes has come and gone.  There was action and excitement, late combacks, joy and heartbreak.  But really, the party begins in round 2.  Round 1 was a good opportunity for some songs to get some tourney experience, but at the end of the day there were only 3 upsets...two 10 seeds and one 11 seed.  (Unless you want to count the three victorious 9-seeds as upsets.)  Let\'s rundown some of the more interesting matchups:

Pearl Street Region:[/SIZE]
In the most surprising bracket, top seed Scheme pulled the only shutout over hapless Prom \'97.  In the closest battle of the week, the fans showed their emotional side in voting #9 Fairy over #8 What the Funk by one vote.  #5 Score rocked #12 Phaddy Boom Baddy by thirty-four votes, proving that Phaddy is a program in trouble.  3 years ago it would have been a contender to win, now it faces near Bouncing-Around-The-Room-Status.  It\'s not a bad song, but the fans seem to have turned on it for the time being.  The 10, 11, and 14 seeds were all instrumental underdogs, but two out of three emerged victorious.  #10 Frankly Po Zest doubled up #7 Vera Street, while #11 Wake Up in a Coma beat #6 No Regret going away.  While I did predict FPZ over Vera Street, your humble author is very surprised that two old-school instrumentals that do not get played very often so easily defeated two songs on the newest album.  That would have made for a hot parlay.  

The Booth Region:[/SIZE]
#1 seed Rufus easily defeated Beer Jubilee, but Beer Jubilee became the crowd darling of the first round.  Team Jubilee did an excellent job getting the name and the song out there, and for the first time in three years there were many "Bring Back Beer Jubilee" posts.  Beer Jubilee is a song on the rise right now.  In a surprisingly lopsided old-school 8/9 battle, #9 Eppy I crushed #8 LDZ.  To some extent Eppy I is riding on the coattails of the en fuego Eppy II.  Two more old-school vs. Real Radio matchups showed that there is a lot of old-school sentiment coming into the tournament.  #6 seed Doughboy only held off #11 Cut Me Some Slack by two votes, while #10 seed Attraction pummeled #7 Dimension 5 by thirty votes.  Doughboy has opened a ton of sets in the last year and is on the new album, yet could only win by 2 over a rare old-school instrumental.  Attraction, which is 90% instrumental, took down another Real Radio song in a battle of Ron songs.  

Toad\'s Place Region:[/SIZE]
A very straightforward region featured a see-saw battle between #8 Garcian Fishbowl and #9 Question Mark and the Mind.  In the end old-school won out again as Garcian pulled through by four votes.  Other than that, this bracket really begins this week.

Winston\'s Region[/SIZE]
No close matchups and no upsets.  Further advancing the old-school powerhouse theory, #8 Superfly handily took down #9 Fresh Cut.  Real tourney begins now.

Round 1 was a nice appetizer, and the heavyweight battles are yet to come.  Check out my Totally Tubular Round 2 Predictions post!

Now that we know how many people are voting, we can do some point spreads and money lines :)  Note: I am not taking action on these lines, as it may compromise the integrity of the tourney.  These lines are being provided as a service if you would like to place wagers amongst yourselves.

5 Score

Spread: Score -7
Money Line: Score -140
Odds to Win It All: Score 225:1, Inner Glimpse 400:1
Comment: This one\'s gonna be close!  After a tough first round for Real Radio, it will be forced to lose another song.

3 Sundance
11 Wake Up In A Coma

Spread: Sundance -17
Money Line: Sundance -225
Odds to Win It All: Sundance 125:1, WUIAC 500:1

4 See The Light
5 Beef Barley

Spread: STL -7.5
Money Line: STL -170
Odds To Win It All: STL 110:1, BB 160:1
Comment: Super old-school matchup, STL has the early edge off of an impressive squashing of Bugs.

3 Taboo or Not Taboot
6 Doughboy

Spread: TONT -4.5
Money Line: TONT -130
Odds To Win It All: TONT 30:1, Doughboy 60:1
Comment: As an oddsmaker I have to make TONT the slight favorite, but I\'ll stick with my pre-tourney prediction that this will be Doughboy\'s money day.    

2 Escher\'s Etchings
10 Attraction to Shade Ditty

Spread: Escher\'s -22
Money Line: Escher\'s -450
Odds To Win It All: Eschers 10:1, ATSD 400:1

5 Puppetry

Spread: The Chase -2
Money Line: The Chase -115
Odds To Win It All: Chase 180:1, Puppetry 190:1

Money Line: Fiery Ball -170
Odds To Win It All: Fiery Ball 180:1, Sleeping Beauty 500:1

Odds To Win It All: Gravity 12:1, DMB 300:1
Comment: This means war!  Going against the old-school power theory, new muscle Gravity eliminates Drunk Monk Bar.

Winston\'s Region[/SIZE]
1 Mooboo\'s Voodoo (Episode II)
8 Superfly Phaddy Fat

Spread: Eppy II -60
Money Line: Eppy II -3250
Odds To Win It All: Eppy II 1:1, SPF 5500:1

Spread: Mayfly -2
Money Line: Mayfly -115
Odds To Win It All: Gladys 210:1, Mayfly 200:1
Comment: Mayfly comes into the second round as the only lower seed to be a favorite due to much more frequent rotation.

2 Tribal Funk Affliction
7 Wild Pack of Asscracks

Spread: TFA -31
Money Line: TFA -550
Odds To Win It All: TFA 19:1, WPOA 124:1

Happy Voting!

The rounds keep making me make tough decisions. I actually had to think for a few minutes about each of the match ups. Should be interesting.
Love many, trust few and don\'t be late.

I would like to see the band play the "Elite 8" as a show. I know we have not gotten there yet but with the 16 we got now the 8 that make it will be monsters. I was thinking that the sweet 16 would be a great 2 set show, but an 8 song show would just be the perfect way for the band to explore each of these songs DEEPLY.

just a quick heads up to let everyone know that there will be a delay between the end of Round 3 and the beginning of Round 4, as i won\'t be getting home from Vegas until late late Monday night. look for round 4 to start sometime Tuesday, 7/5.
