Song of the Day #3,234: ‘Tin Man’ – Miranda Lambert vs. Bob Dylan

This is the Montauk madness first round matchup I’ve been dreading since I first peeked ahead at the random seedings.

It’s not that the decision between Miranda Lambert and Bob Dylan is ultimately all that difficult (Dylan gets my vote). I just hate to see Lambert exit so early. I adore this woman so much that she should be an Elite Eight or even Final Four contender, but the hand of fate will have her on the sidelines before the games have even begun.

So I’m sorry, Miranda, but at least you have the honor of losing to a titan like Bob Dylan. And who knows, maybe a Lambert fan uprising will sweep in here and push her to the upset.

[Verse 1]
Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don’t know how lucky you are
You shouldn’t spend your whole life wishin’
For something bound to fall apart
Everytime you’re feeling empty
Better thank your lucky stars
If you ever felt one breaking
You’d never want a heart

Oo-oo
Oo-oo
Oo

[Verse 2]
Hey there Mr. Tin Man
You don’t know how lucky you are
I’ve been on the road that you’re on
It didn’t get me very far
You ain’t missing nothing
‘Cause love is so damn hard
Take it from me darling
You don’t want a heart

Oo-oo
Oo-oo
Oo

[Verse 3]
Hey there Mr. Tin Man
I’m glad we talked this out
You can take mine if you want it
It’s in pieces now
By the way there Mr. Tin Man
If you don’t mind the scars
You give me your armor
And you can have my heart

Oo-oo
Oo-oo
Oo

    Don’t count on an upset here. The legend moves on…

    It is a shame that with this random match up generator great artists like Miranda Lambert are being paired against legends like Bob Dylan. However, Bob Dylan must continue on simply due to his effect on music in general, his beautiful lyrics, and his refined yet potent songs. Though I love Crazy Ex Girlfriend, (“Gunpowder and Lead” is a favorite of mine), I’m going to have to give this one to Dylan.

    I’m not sure any artist could win in the first round against the only one to ever receive a Nobel prize for literature (though I still doubt he will take this whole contest…. )
