Whose better – Whose best?
Right you petulant lot – who are you going to defend now then?
Inspired by my music players results:
Monkees 74 songs 3.4 hours of tunes V’s Beatles 0 songs not a second of tunes.
Why is this the case? – there’s a long winded answer and a short answer.
(insert Paul McCartney* where ever the hell you like here)
Why would I spend hours winding up my mate up about how The Wedding Present are so much better than The Smiths? – but the music that they constantly play IT SAYS NOTHING TO ME ABOUT MY LIFE .. was always a good sentence to slip in about the Smiths*… whereas David Gedge is authentic and honest and oh so incompetent about love and loss and gains a teenage boys empathy.
Answers can be long winded or succinct – preferable one artist/band in comparison to another (or an entire Genre if you are feeling flamboyant)
(*the argument doesn’t even have to be true – it can be just for the fun of it)
And I know that this is a exercise in debate – not a Black and White definition of entire careers (*see my point about The Smiths) – although I’m keeping the output of Leonard Cohen in preference to Bob Dylan, any day, thank you very much.
Come on people – get it off your chest.
No sulking at the back.
No throwing rattles out the pram.
A good cleansing is what we want..
Those that want to get oiled can wait ’till those with a more nervous disposition are tucked up in bed.
Thank You and good luck.
(some words, phrases and opinions will cause offence in this challenge – please stop reading is this is going to be a problem)
P.S if you can distil it down to one song against another as an illustration in your comments – all the more fun.
