Weekly iPod Wars: Battle #3

Well, despite Glenn Tilbrook's insistence (well, Chris Difford's insistence, technically) that he can't hold on, he can and he did. Hence, Squeeze is the new iPod Wars champion (take that, Macy!), and as such, they must now go up against...yeah, another British band. OK, so my iPod's proving me a traitor to my own country's music. What are you gonna do about it??

Before deciding how to handle my musical treason, take a minute to vote in this week's battle. I realize that Flesh For Lulu is a bit obscure (although this certainly isn't the first time I've mentioned them) but I hope you'll give them a chance before just voting for Squeeze again. Because, while I love Squeeze, this FFL song is one of my favorites ever. Don't let that sway your opinion, though, because I say that a lot. Too much, actually.

Song #1: "I Can't Hold On," Squeeze


Song #2: "Sleeping Dogs," Flesh For Lulu

Squeeze again. I hate long intros (Lulu - 33 seconds) and 'Hold On' is one catchy tune.

Malcolm said...

Squeeze gets my vote. The FFL tune was OK, but it just didn't grab me.

Macy said...

Sounds of loud sulking from the corner....

Renee said...

I started with FFL and thought, "not bad." I got bored at about 1:19 and switched to Squeeze...immediately better.

Sorry, voting for Squeeze!!


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.
