Weekly iPod Wars: Battle #7

Soooo...last week's battle between Billy Idol and Led Zeppelin ended in a tie. Therefore, yours truly gets the deciding vote. And being of sound mind and body, I pick Zeppelin OF COURSE. Seriously, people, I like Billy Idol as much as the next guy (well, unless the next guy would consider ranking him above Plant & Co., and then obviously I don't), but come on! And those of you who suggested that this particular Zep song is a weak spot in their catalog not only made me break out in hives but have also been put on my watch list. There's something very off about you people.

Anyway, it's on to this week's battle, in which Led Zeppelin squares off against Pete Yorn. This could be a tough one. The Zep song is pretty intense but that Yorn fella sure can write a jingly, jangly, catchy tune.

Vote for your favorite track in the comments section!

Song #1: "Ten Years Gone," Led Zeppelin


Song #2: "Life on a Chain," Pete Yorn

I like the Yorn fella. I have a bunch of his songs. I say Yorn. Leave Zeppelin for the old hippies. *DUCK*

This is my protest vote to your tie breaker... Plant & Co are awesome but I luuuuv Idol.

So this week I am adding a write-in candidate as a protest, just like in real politics. And yes this will be as successful.

I vote for Paul Abdul's "Cold Hearted"... cuz it is lame... now put that in your tally!

Yorn! No contest.

(Plus, it's fun to say 'yorn.' No, really. Try it. Yorn. Kinda reminds me of the 'barbaric yawp' from Dead Poet's Society.)

Allow me to be the old hippie who says "Zeppelin!"

Seriously? Pete Yorn against Led Zeppelin? Talk about David vs Goliath. (If david forgot his magic slingshot)

That's one vote for LZ, if I wasn't clear.

Peter Yorn, but mostly because he's hot.
Have to back the Yornster on this one! But it was a tight race.

I vote for Yorn, but only because I am partial to the needle dragging on the record like a plow through a field sound.
Pete Yorn in a first-round knockout.
