Update: I ended up pulling the plug on the tournament bracket idea, sorry! I started putting it together tonight, but my list of songs was already out to 112 even with me culling a lot. I have not been able to find anything online that can handle a bracket (free at least) for people to vote that can have more than 32 or 64 items.
