Weekly iPod Wars: Battle #9

Heyyy, so this Weekly iPod Wars thing is already not living up to its name. I totally spaced on naming a winner last week, which I figured would have given more people time to vote, but we all know that the shelf life of a blog post is about a 24 hours and three minutes. So, no one really cared.

In case you've already forgotten who the battlers were, it was Pete Yorn's "Life on a Chain" versus Robyn, who proved herself to be "Indestructible," indeed, taking the vote 6-4.

Now the Swedish dance queen goes up against Kiwi popsters, Crowded House, one of my FAVORITE BANDS EVER. This particular song is also a favorite of mine, and the album it's from (Together Alone) is my favorite of theirs. I won't say too much more because I don't want to be accused of trying to sway the vote. But I will say that if the opposing song was "Distant Sun" (aka one of the best songs in the history of ever), I would have dismantled this democracy, named Crowded House the winner and killed anyone who dared question my ruling. But it's not, so I won't, so hey, rock the vote!

Song #1: "Indestructible," Robyn


Song #2: "In My Command," Crowded House

Despite Neil Finn being a New Zealander, I'd just like to point out that 90% of Crowded House are Australian. And don't you forget it.

Okay I love me some Crowded House, but this isnt one of their best songs, and the Robyn song is awesome... I vote for Lady Robyn!

I vote for "Crowded House." Not even close.

I am not afraid of you. (Okay I am, a little bit). But I vote for Crowded House with no arm twisting involved.

Decent race. Fair fight. I like it when the decision comes down to taste more than quality. My tastes go all Crowded House, but the other is a totally fine pop song.

Oh, it's a GREAT song, true, don't get me wrong. But I honestly don't even care which song it is, Crowded House gets my vote! Love, love, LOVE them!!!!

Love the Robyn, but my vote is going to Crowded House as well. Both GREAT tracks though.


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.
