Incubus March Madness Bracket

So an idea was posted on reddit to do a March madness bracket for Incubus, and low and behold: I made one.
64 songs, the selection of which of course will lead to some question where song X or Y is. I picked six songs from every album first, two from Enjoy Incubus/Trust Fall and then some B-sides. Then I decided to fill the last 5 spots with an extra song from their most popular albums: SCIENCE to Light Grenades. Match-ups were selected at random.

The songs picked are not my personal favorites. I decided to pick all singles, just because they are the biggest songs. The non-singles include songs that ended up on top on votes before/ended high or are live staples or favorites. Of course it is very arbitrary still, but at least now you know.

So get to voting! The bracket ends 31-03!

Funny, those are basically the songs that always make the top-5 any time we did a vote on favorite songs.

Final was Surface to Air vs. The Warmth for me. Surface took it. I adore that song.

I always liked Hold Me Down over Surface to Air. I am aware I am probably the only person with this view :lol:

Oh wow, yeah. I actually like Hold Me Down and think it would've improved INNW if it was included, but it's really straight-forward. Surface to Air, to me, can hold it's own on any Incubus album. On some it would be the absolute best track, on others it would make the top-3. Hold Me Down wouldn't do that for me, but still I prefer it over The Original, Promises, Friends and Lovers or Thieves.

ended with Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song) vs. Wish You Were Here.
that’s.... weirdly ironic. are the match-ups random for individuals or just randomly once for all?

Did mine a couple of days ago, think the final was Crow vs Surface to Air - tough choice but Crow edged it.

I agree. If you replace Promises, The Original and Tomorrows Food with Hold Me Down, Rebel Girls, and Surface to Air, INNW would have been a much more solid album. Still eclectic, but stronger IMO.

The latter. I wanted to the first, but I couldn't find the option.
