Jackson Browne March Madness 2015

JacksonBrowne-MarchMadnessSure we’re over half way through March, but we’re doing this anyway!

This is an elimination-style game to determine Jackson Browne’s most favored songs based on votes done through the March Madness style of brackets. I am completely sports ignorant (hence that awkward previous sentence), so this will probably deviate from the college NCAA version of March Madness but I’ll try to keep it simple, straightforward and fun.

On each subsequent post (links below), you’ll be asked to vote for your favorite between two songs, whatever “favorite” means to you. We’ll continue to narrow it down, pairing off winners, until there is only one!

How did I choose the songs? Each album of new songs from Jackson Browne’s catalog, from his debut album to his newest, Standing in the Breach, is represented at least once in each of the four sets (typically called regions in normal March Madness). The first two sets on the left are heavy on singles. The second two sets have a mix of singles, popular non-singles and deep cuts, favorites, and songs suggested by fans at the For Everyman Facebook group.

The Jackson Browne March Madness is just for fun and is meant to celebrate the music of Jackson Browne into petty competition. Whichever songs win, it is really just a snapshot of the particular tastes of those that voted at that particular time. Picking a favorite is never easy, and people’s decisions can evolve over time. I know mine does, even day to day. The more people that join in, the better, so be sure to share this with your friends who also like Jackson Browne’s music.

Many thanks to Bill Jorgensen for tossing this idea out, and the fine folks at the For Everyman Facebook group for letting me run with the idea.

To play, follow the links below. Links will become live as we progress. Dates set below are tentative, and may be adjusted based on feedback, voting and my own weird life schedule.
