Gotye vs. Walk Off The Earth: Results!

So I know you all have been lying in uncertain agony on your dorm room floors after the battle between Gotye and Walk Off The Earth. Well, I’m glad to announce I can finally end your suspense and declare (drumroll) BOTH bands as victors of last week’s caged match. I wasn’t totally surprised with that outcome. Walk Off the Earth’s rendition is so similar to Gotye’s I sometimes forget which I’m listening to. I am, however, somewhat partial to Walk Off The Earth’s because the female singer (I still don’t really know any of their names) puts all the other singers—in both versions—to shame. Give it another listen if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

This Week’s Battle: Elton John vs. Ellie Goulding

Elton John, the man who merits no introduction. He made all the papers a couple months ago for his boxing match with Madonna at the Golden Globes. Just some good old-fashioned American entertainment. (It wasn’t a real boxing match in case you were wondering. How awesome would that be though?) Anyway, he’s a pretty cool guy from what I’ve heard. I have to judge him from what I’ve heard because strangely I don’t know him personally. Okay enough with the silliness.

This time, the match is with Ellie Goulding, a pretty fresh face in the music world. She’s British (Those Brits. They’re all so much cooler than us. Sometimes I think Emancipation wasn’t such a good thing after all.) She took a gap year from University of Kent. I’m guessing she never went back because it never says anything about her getting her bachelors. Fun Fact: She runs six miles a day. If I ran six miles a day, I’d never have time to eat let alone be a super cool musician. But there ya go.
