68: "Band on the Run" vs. "Mr. Blue Sky"
Can one of the most Beatles-esque bands of the '70s take down an actual Beatle? Electric Light Orchestra's beloved "Mr. Blue Sky" takes on Paul McCartney's "Band on the Run" in the battle of the multi-part '70s rock epics!
67: "School's Out" vs. "Another Brick in the Wall" (w/Maggie Mae Fish)
We don't need no education, so the school's been blown to pieces! We welcome Maggie Mae Fish into the studio to argue Alice Cooper's "School's Out" vs. Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall," the shock rock vs. prog rock showdown you've all been waiting for!
66: "Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check" vs. "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" (with Daren Jackson!)
It's a fish-eye lens showdown! We're going back to the Hype Williams era of hip-hop to argue which is the best debut single by the great wild rappers of the '90s? Is it "Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check" by Busta Rhymes or "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" by Missy Elliott?
65: "Stairway to Heaven" vs. "Free Bird" (w/Andrew Unterberger!)
It's the big one. The episode this show was invented for, the two towering titans of classic rock, the most requested song on the radio of all time vs. the most requested song live of all time. Will Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" reign as the greatest guitar-solo-heavy epic of all time or will it be denied by "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin?
Too long for my drive to work :’(
As much as I love the content, any eps longer than 45 mins are hard to fit into my day and I hate having to cut these guys off before they reveal how the Patreon poll went and which song came out on top... but other then that, it’s great!
Also would like to recommend/suggest Keith Urban “The Fighter” vs Christina Aguilera “Fighter” please? The comparisons for similar titles or themes are always the more interesting then the same genre (eg ‘emo’) comparison. Could I get a shout out on the next ep for having reviewed? hahaha (notice me Todd)
Two Guys Educated In Music
Both hosts fight for which song they prefer and have examples and knowledge to back up their points
