Broccoli For Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles … Oh Yeah!

Despite a relatively large vote count we’ve got a tie between the Avett Brothers and The Persuasions.


Hence, a 3-Day runoff to settle the issue. If the runoff should also end in a tie then I’ll be forced to contract a maiming of the members of all musicians concerned (i.e. Paul Simon, the Avett Brothers – and possibly a few cousins, and The Persuasion) and at least one individual totally unrelated to the proceedings (probably Billy Joel), which may seem a bit harsh and arbitrary but, hell, something will have to be done …

The Original

Paul Simon:


The Cover Songs Competition


Avett Brothers vs. The Persuasion


Avett Brothers:

The Persuasions:

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.



Votes can be cast up to seven days from the day and time of the original post.

Disclaimer: Votes cast from Florida may or may not be counted.

    I’m switching teams! This week I like The Persuasions more (and it has nothing to do with Arnie’s New-York-Centric enthusiasm).
