Re: Back to the 80's tournament, Quarterfinals

Depeche Mode - Never let me down again vs the Cure - Lullaby
*... tough choice, I like both songs
Dire Straits - Money for nothing vs Prince - Purple Rain
*Dire Straits have been many good songs in the 80s but not "Money for nothing"
Frankie goes to Hollywood - Relax vs A-Ha - Take on me
* another tough choice, but I give a vote on A-ha (one of the first clips I had seen)
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams vs Guns 'n Roses - Sweet child o' mine
* similar situation to Dire Straits, I like many songs of Eurythmics from the 80s but not this one, but on the other hand, Sweet Child is a No. 2 in the seeds, so I would like to see a final without a favourite

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

I'm surprised about these remaining songs in the tournament. I had really expected some of the one hit wonders songs from the 80ies would make it far, like "The final countdown" from Europe or stuff like that.
