Blog Wars: The Genius Playlist | Round 1, Battle 5(!)


On the last Blog Wars Battle, two blogs named after their respective bloggers, Arjan Writes and Nialler9 went head to head on one of our favorites of 2008 — the Killers' "Human." Both presented worthy playlists, but Nialler9 had the edge, taking 56% of the votes, leaving Arjan out in the cold. It was a close one, but only Nialler9 will make it to the second round.

On this last Battle of the first Round, Music Is Art takes on blog superstar and juggernaut (oh, how I love hyperbole) PMA! You didn't think I'd organize this war and not throw in a few punches myself, did you? You obviously don't know me at all. Anyway, the song in question is M.I.A.'s "Boyz" and we all know how this goes...
