Weekly iPod Wars: Battle #1

So, I know I haven't written anything in a while. But look, it's summer. My blog inspiration receptors are fried. And it's hard to muster up the energy to mock Rebecca Black's latest embarrassing musical failure or care about Jennifer Lopez's latest embarrassing marital failure when 85% of what's running through my veins is straight mosquito poison. Also, I think Rupert Murdoch put a chip in my brain and is erasing all of my ideas.

Anyway, since I figured I should probably put something in this space (content over quality—just like AOL), I've created a new feature that will entertain you with the minimum amount of effort on my part! It's called Weekly iPod Wars. Each week, I'll activate my iPod's fancy randomizing application (which some of you crudely refer to as "shuffle play"). The first two songs played will then have to fight it out here on my blog for YOUR affection. You know the drill: two songs enter, one song leaves.

Since I'm still forming how exactly this feature will work, I'm looking for your feedback. Should a winning song get to battle new songs until it's defeated, or should each week feature two new songs? While you think about that, let Battle #1 begin!

Song #1: "So Good To Hear," The Duke Spirit


Song #2: "Savages," Paul Weller

Now, rock the vote. You don't even have to be 18!

Firstly, I think Paul takes this one for me.

Secondly, I'd go with two different songs every week, but hey, up to you and either way, it works!

Put me down for Duke Spirit. I liked their Neptune album, and this tells me I might like their debut.

The other song just made me want to listen to "Handbags and Gladrags."

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Sorry, Paul, I have to go with the Duke Spirit on this one. I'm in the mood for some jangly guitars.

I like the idea of the winner taking on new components.

Brahm (alfred lives here) said...

I vote for Mr Paul....

Renee said...

I didn't know either of these artists and I liked them both, but Paul wins. I'd put him up against whatever you come up with next week and see how he does.

Macy said...

Hey Duke spirit! Because I hate Paul Weller on principle...
And while we're at it, I'm going to suggest we get a voting button option, cause I like them.

I vote Duke Spirit. I like the winner going up against a new song.

Thanks for all the votes so far, peeps. I have to say that, while I love The Duke Spirit, I'm a little surprised. I assumed that The Modfather would run away with this one.

Looks like more of you like the idea of the winner going up against a new song. Kind of like Friday Night Videos! Maybe I should change it to a Friday post and call it Friday Night Audios? No...that's way too stupid.

Macy - I'm trying to figure out how to make this fancier, with voting buttons and whatnot. I'm gonna work on it.

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

I vote Duke Spirit. The other guy sounds like Cat Stevens or something.

Eric said...

Duke Spirit, because the front lady is just that hot and can get away with anything, including beating the 'Weller'.

Dale said...

I'd like to know how you figured out the mosquitos are straight.

Malcolm said...

This was a close call, but my vote goes to Mr. Weller. Also, I like the idea of the winner taking on new challengers each week.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
