Showdown #23

Dream Street Rose 12
Dreamland 9

Showdown #22

Triangle 15
Ghosts of Cape Horn 9

While you are all trying to wrap your brains around ranking songs for Don Quioxte or Cold on the Shoulder, how about the next showdown of songs. With this contest, you only need to consider two songs and then vote for the one you enjoy the most. I try to compare songs that have a similar musical theme or lyrical theme. In today's, matchup, the topic of islands is discussed. Interestingly both songs appear on the albums aforementioned. I chose them because both make me think of being on holiday in the summertime in the Canadian northland (and it is summer). Which do you prefer:

Christian Island

or

Seven Island Suite


Have fun.

MM

Oh, I do like being first...
very difficult choice, I love both of them, but I listen to them according to the mood I am in... they don't fit the same mood for me...
that being said, I am choosing:
Seven Island Suite

tough one...

I think you mean:

She's a good old boat and she'll stay afloat
Through the toughest gales and keep smilin'
When the summer ends we will rest again
In the lee of Christian Island.

Oh you stinker!

I looooooooove both of these! Agh! LOL! :D

On my list (of 150 fav's),I ranked Seven Island Suite in the top five,so,
I'll stand by that one and just say that "Christian Island" is second to that by a mere decimal point!
