Weekly iPod Wars: Battle #8

In last week's David vs. Goliath battle, Pete Yorn's pleasant little rock managed to bring down giant Gods of Thunder, Led Zeppelin. Well, stranger things have happened, I guess. Like getting a write-in vote for Paula Abdul's "Cold Hearted," courtesy of Brahm.

This week's match-up may be a little more up Brahm's alley, as new champ Yorn goes up against Swedish dance pop maven, Robyn. If the title of her song is any indication, ol' Pete is fighting a losing battle.

Song #1: "Life on a Chain," Pete Yorn


Song #2: "Indestructible," Robyn

Wow, this was harder than I thought it would be. The synth-pop of Robyn was surprising good.

But I have to go with Yorn. But this is a 53% to 47% win in my mind for him.

Cora said...

I'm going with Robyn. That song would be spectacular on the treadmill and, dammit, that's just how I judge songs.

Heather said...

Going with Robyn. Love her.

So. Cal. Gal said...

I'm going with Pete Yorn. I like a song I can snap my fingers to (since I can't dance, obviously) and Robyn is just not doin' it for me.

Malcolm said...

Although the Pete Yorn tune got better as it went on, Robyn still gets my vote.

bloody awful poetry said...

I still love that Pete Yorn track, but my vote is going to Robin.

Macy said...

That was HARD! I thought Robyn had no chance until I listened to her and now....she gets my vote!!

How's that for a turnaround hey?

Brahm (alfred lives here) said...

Ooh, tough one this week, I really like Yorn, but Robyn makes amazing dance music and I love this track!

I give my FIVE votes for Robyn!

See, no Paula Abdul this time. You're welcome....

Dr. Kenneth Noisewater said...

I vote for Pete Yorn, even though I love Sweden. "10 Years Gone" is a tremendous Zep song. Surprised it got served.

words...words...words... said...

Pete Yorn wins handily. 70% for the song, 30% because Robyn doesn't know how to spell her own name.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

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.
