Musical March Madness 2020: And the Winner Is…
Posted on March 02 2020 by Andy Spiteri
Hello everybody and WELCOME BACK to the second annual MUSICAL MARCH MADNESS. The premise is simple: 64 songs will go head to head in a series of single elimination matches, with the winner advancing to the next round, until there is only ONE song left standing that can be called the Greatest Zelda Song Ever. This post will be updated DAILY with new match-ups, so make sure you bookmark it. Polls will last 24 HOURS, STARTING AND ENDING AT 5 PM PACIFIC / 8 PM EASTERN, at which point the song with more votes advances to the next round.
New to the 2020 version of Musical March Madness is the ability to PREDICT THE BRACKET! Whoever predicts the final outcome and guesses the most correct match-ups will WIN A PRIZE courtesy of our friends over at MATERIA COLLECTIVE! It’s simple – get one point for guessing the correct winner of a first round matchup, get two points for guessing the correct winner of a second round matchup, and so on and so forth for every matchup until we get to the end!

THIRD PLACE WINS: a Princess Zelda plushie (cute!)
Last year, we saw Gerudo Valley dominate the competition. This year, a new song will claim the title of Best Zelda Song. Which one will it be? Only YOU can decide!
