Showdown #21
Whispers of the North 15 Ringneck Loon 3

Seems like no contest on this one. I'm with the majority too. I love the sound of Whispers. The harmonies are awesome and I always enjoy the loon call at the beginning. I haven't posted a showdown for a while, so I decided I'd better revive them before they get lost in the archives. So for number 22, I'm pitting two seafaring songs together. I'm curious to see what the thought is on the following matchup:

Triangle

vs.

Ghosts of Cape Horn

They're both great songs, so I think the voting will be tight, but you tell me...Which do you prefer in this showdown.

Have fun.

MM

P.S. Next time I'll put the history of the votes at the end so that you don't have to scroll down all the time.

You're right, this is really a toughie! I have to go with Triangle, and if I'm outvoted, I'll just say "it's a mighty fine way to go down".

That's quite a pair of songs M.M.! Much as I love "Ghosts Of Cape Horn" (especially the whistling),I have to go a few points higher with,of course,"Triangle".

Jaunty and fun to sing along with.

Ryan wants to vote!

I was so sure there would be "no contest" for this, that is how much I like Ghosts.

Triangle. One of the first 12-string songs I learned.
