    Here I Go Again over Born To Be Wild?

    Are you mad?
     
  7. scotchandcigar

    scotchandcigar arrogant bastard

    I'll add the Memebag-esque commentary:

    1. Cream "Badge" vs. AC/DC "Highway to Hell"
    Both great songs, pretty much a toss-up
    2. The Who "Behind Blue Eyes" vs. Toto "Hold the Line"
    Toto sucks
    3. Grateful Dead "Casey Jones" vs. Scorpions "Rock You Like a Hurricane"
    Scorpions suck
    4. Deep Purple "Hush" vs. Billy Joel "Only the Good Die Young"
    Another 2 great songs
    5. Creedence Clearwater Revival "Down on the Corner" vs. ELO "Evil Woman"
    That ELO song is annoying
    6. The Doors "People are Strange" vs. Rush "Subdivisons"
    Great Rush tune vs a weak song from a great band
    7. Led Zeppelin "The Ocean" vs. REO Speedwagon "Time for Me to Fly"
    REO sucks
    8. Yes "Your Move/I've Seen All Good People" vs. Jefferson Starship "Jane"
    Starship is pretty lame vs great Yes tune
    9. Velvet Underground "Sweet Jane" vs. Eagles "New Kid in Town"
    One of the sappiest Eagles songs, no contest
    10. Allman Brothers "Midnight Rider" vs. George Thorogood "Move It On Over"
    Pretty much a dead heat, both classics, flip of a coin
    11. Mountain "Mississippi Queen" vs. Eddie Money "Baby Hold On"
    Eddie Money sucks
    12. Pink Floyd "Money" vs. Van Halen "Panama"
    Some of VH doesn't suck, but they can't beat a Floyd classic
    13. The Band "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" vs. Peter Frampton "Show Me the Way"
    Not a big fan of that Band song
    14. Alice Cooper "School's Out" vs. Warren Zevon "Werewolves of London"
    Again a dead heat, both classics, flip of a coin
    15. David Bowie "Space Oddity" vs. Boston "Peace of Mind"
    Normally I'd go with Bowie, but he's got a million greats, and Boston has only a few
    16. Bachman-Turner Overdrive "Taking Care of Business" vs. Fleetwood Mac "Don't Stop"
    A crappy Mac song
    17. Paul McCartney "Live and Let Die" vs. ZZ Top "Gimme All Your Lovin'"
    Both classics, but a strong Macca song beats ZZ
    18. Free "All Right Now" vs. Journey "Any Way You Want It"
    Journey generally sucks, but this is OK, however not good enough
    19. Crosby, Stills, Nash "Long Time Gone" vs. John Mellencamp "Small Town"
    Two more great songs, CSN is more of a classic
    20. Jimi Hendrix "Fire" vs. The Cars "My Best Friend's Girl"
    One of the crappier Cars songs
    21. Jethro Tull "Thick as a Brick" vs. Supertramp "Take the Long Way Home"
    Both great bands, but like Boston, Supertramp has only a few big hits, and this is one
    22. Van Morrison "Domino" vs. Billy Idol "White Wedding"
    I like Van, but I'm kinda tired of that song
    23. Steppenwolf "Born to be Wild" vs. Whitesnake "Here I Go Again"
    Whitesnake sucks
    24. Elton John "Rocket Man" vs. Foreigner "Head Games"
    Foreigner sucks
    25. Mott the Hoople "All the Young Dudes" vs. Steely Dan "Hey Nineteen"
    Love Steely Dan, love that song, but it's not their strongest
    26. T. Rex "Bang a Gong" vs. .38 Special "Hold On Loosely"
    .38 special sucks
    27. The Beatles "Get Back" vs. Eagles "Heartache Tonight"
    Another weak tune from the Eagles
    28. Derek & The Dominos "Bell Bottom Blues" vs. Bruce Springsteen "Dancing in the Dark"
    Easy pick, as that's a pretty lame Springsteen hit
    29. The Rolling Stones "Street Fighting Man" vs. Tom Petty "The Waiting"
    Petty song is more annoying
    30. Chicago "Make Me Smile" vs. Ozzy Osbourne "Shot in the Dark"
    Ozzy sorta sucks

    23 for Vinyl, 7 for Rewind

  9. Casual Fan

    Casual Fan Surprisingly nice

    1. Cream "Badge" vs. AC/DC "Highway to Hell"

    My favorite Cream song. Highway to Hell is just another forgettable Bon Scott AC/DC tune.

    2. The Who "Behind Blue Eyes" vs. Toto "Hold the Line"

    A beautiful Who song. An overproduced bunch of Toto nonsense.

    3. Grateful Dead "Casey Jones" vs. Scorpions "Rock You Like a Hurricane"

    I like the Scorpions, but Hurricane isn't my favorite, and Casey Jones is a hell of a tune.

    4. Deep Purple "Hush" vs. Billy Joel "Only the Good Die Young"

    Billy Joel. Hush is a freaking cover.

    5. Creedence Clearwater Revival "Down on the Corner" vs. ELO "Evil Woman"

    ELO did so much better work. I guess I'll take CCR.

    6. The Doors "People are Strange" vs. Rush "Subdivisons"

    One of the loopiest Doors songs, and one of the coolest Rush songs.

    7. Led Zeppelin "The Ocean" vs. REO Speedwagon "Time for Me to Fly"

    It's a fun REO song to sing, but that Jimmy Page riff tho.

    8. Yes "Your Move/I've Seen All Good People" vs. Jefferson Starship "Jane"

    Meh. Meh.

    Meh.

    9. Velvet Underground "Sweet Jane" vs. Eagles "New Kid in Town"

    Only the greatest VU song ever. Sorry, Glenn, but your FM-friendly blend of laid-back SoCal country rock will have to wait its turn.

    10. Allman Brothers "Midnight Rider" vs. George Thorogood "Move It On Over"

    Fuck George Thorogood. What a hack. And compared to the Allmans? Please. I'd listen to the Allmans scratch their fingernails down a blackboard and tap my foot.

    11. Mountain "Mississippi Queen" vs. Eddie Money "Baby Hold On"

    Baby hold on to my blow while I take a piss.

    12. Pink Floyd "Money" vs. Van Halen "Panama"

    Not my favorite Floyd tune, so Eddie's killer intro wins. Reach down between your legs and ease the seat back.

    13. The Band "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" vs. Peter Frampton "Show Me the Way"

    Well, I guess Frampton's live Show Me the Way is one of the greatest rock tunes ever. Sorry, Levon.

    14. Alice Cooper "School's Out" vs. Warren Zevon "Werewolves of London"

    Dubya Zee for tha vic-toe-ree

    15. David Bowie "Space Oddity" vs. Boston "Peace of Mind"

    I recognize the brilliance of Space Oddity, but what an anthem. This thread makes me understand about indecision.

    16. Bachman-Turner Overdrive "Taking Care of Business" vs. Fleetwood Mac "Don't Stop"

    The older I get, the more I appreciate the genius of Lindsey Buckingham.

    17. Paul McCartney "Live and Let Die" vs. ZZ Top "Gimme All Your Lovin'"

    ZZ has lots of songs like Gimme, but Live and Let Die is a Bond theme, man.

    18. Free "All Right Now" vs. Journey "Any Way You Want It"

    Free and that riff win. Journey has better tunes.

    19. Crosby, Stills, Nash "Long Time Gone" vs. John Mellencamp "Small Town"

    Scarecrow is one the best folk-influenced rock albums ever.

    20. Jimi Hendrix "Fire" vs. The Cars "My Best Friend's Girl"

    Move over, Rick, and let Jimi take over.

    21. Jethro Tull "Thick as a Brick" vs. Supertramp "Take the Long Way Home"

    The Tramp's best tune and a decent Tull tune.

    22. Van Morrison "Domino" vs. Billy Idol "White Wedding"

    I almost went with Domino, but I mistook it for Jackie Wilson for a moment. But it does pain me to place a Billy Idol tune over a Van Morrison tune. Nice arpeggios and bass line in White Wedding.

    23. Steppenwolf "Born to be Wild" vs. Whitesnake "Here I Go Again"

    Whitesnake's best song and video, but Born to Be Wild is rock and roll Gospel.

    24. Elton John "Rocket Man" vs. Foreigner "Head Games"

    Elton is only interested if Foreigner is playing Giving Head Games.

    25. Mott the Hoople "All the Young Dudes" vs. Steely Dan "Hey Nineteen"

    Steely Dan think they're better, so they won't care that I picked the other guys.

    26. T. Rex "Bang a Gong" vs. .38 Special "Hold On Loosely"

    Power Station did Bang a Gong better, so I'll pick those Lynyrd Skynyrd wannabes.

    27. The Beatles "Get Back" vs. Eagles "Heartache Tonight"

    The Beatles have so many songs better than Get Back...I'll give Glenn his due here.

    28. Derek & The Dominos "Bell Bottom Blues" vs. Bruce Springsteen "Dancing in the Dark"

    They say you gotta stay hungry...hey baby, I'm just about starvin' tonight. But that's a beautiful Clapton tune.

    29. The Rolling Stones "Street Fighting Man" vs. Tom Petty "The Waiting"

    The lyrics in SFM are proto-Rage Against the Machine, but this is probably Petty's best tune. "Baby you're the only one who ever knew how to make me wanna live like I wanna live now!" Emote, brother, emote.

    30. Chicago "Make Me Smile" vs. Ozzy Osbourne "Shot in the Dark"

    Fuck late Ozzy. Overproduced MTV-ready crap. And Make Me Smile is just a fine song.


    I think that's 15-15.
