Weekly iPod Wars: Battle #2

In a somewhat surprising turn of events, The Duke Spirit triumphed over Paul Weller in last week's battle. But can they win battle #2? Sure, Leila Moss may bring in extra votes because of her blonde prettiness, but her band is up against Squeeze this time around. And who was blonder and prettier than early 80s Glenn Tilbrook??


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


VS.

Song #2: "I Can't Hold On," Squeeze


I know it may not seem like it right now, but I really do listen to non-British music. One of these weeks, my iPod will prove it.

I still haven't had a chance to play with fancy voting buttons, so for now please continue to cast your votes in the comments section!

Squeeze! I had to stop the other song because her voice irritated me. Of course, I'm a woman so her 'blonde prettiness' does nothing for me...but young Glenn was a hottie, so I may be a tad prejudiced.

The Duke Spirit! Can't beat a good bass line. Also y'know, with Madness around at the same time, there just seemed to be one too many bands with cute cocney geezers..

Well clearly I vote for Glenn because I love Glenn. You know that. Glenn is awesome. Twelve votes for Glenn please!

Macy said...

NOOooeee! Glenn looks like Michael Cera! Veg is deluded and her votes can't be counted!

Squeeze!

Love Squeeze, have since I was a kid at summer camp and my counselor played them endlessly. May be a good thing I didnt get the lyrics back then.

That other chick means nothing to me...

Still have to go with the Duke Spirit. Please don't kill me, but I have never been a huge Squeeze fan. And the Duke Spirit song is awesome.

So did the Duke Spirit win??

Or have I just been barred??

 

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.
