Here are the results so far:

Showdown #1
Old Dan's Records 16 Uncle Toad Said 2

Showdown #2
If You Could Read My Mind 13 Harmony 1

Showdown #3
Drifters 12 Stay Loose 6

Showdown #4
Hangdog Hotel Room 10 Betty Called Me In 5

Showdown #5
Slide on Over 10 Blackberry Wine 5

Showdown #6
Sea of Tranquility 8 Triangle 6

Showdown #7
Don Quioxte 13 Minstrel of the Dawn 9

Showdown #8
Message to the Wind 5 A Minor Ballad 6

Well, we had our first tie until I broke it up with my own vote, but there wasn't too much passion for this match up. Showdown #7 caused much more of a stir. Corfid members seemed to be apathetic for the most part to the songs in Showdown #8. I thought that "A Minor Ballad" had a nicer melody and arrangement.

For Showdown #9, I've chosen two lesser known songs again. I'm interested to see what your comments will be about this match up. I can't put my finger on it, but these two songs seem musically connected to me. Here is your choice for #9. Which song do you enjoy the most:

Welcome to Try

or

If There's a Reason

Enjoy

If There is a Reason

Loving someone so much that you will let them go, for a chance at happiness, ultimately is true love.

"Welcome to Try" is an absolute all-time favourite. I Love the lyrics to this song. "use your imagination, try every trick in the book". No contest!

"If There's A Reason". A nice catchy number with the unusual line of,"..cause I've not known anyone like you,since I was a man."

I may have to re-listen to,"Welcome". It's been awhile.

Hey Borderstone
I think you mixed up your songs. You are thinking of "If You Need Me," not "If There's a Reason." You can revote if you'd like.

"If There's a Reason" is on the Endless Wire album. "If You Need Me" is on Dream Street Rose..(to clear up any confusion).

Okay,we know which I'm voting fore basically.

You'll have to excuse my forgetting my songs,I've been working quite a bit since the "hotel season" has started up again and i haven't had time to do much of anything.

So,once again,"If There's A Reason". I think I'm running the 2 songs together somehow.

Okay...I confess,I did double check when I got home that day but by the time I returned to post here I'd forgotten again .

Thought I could slip it past but....anyway,
can we please move on now? Sheesh! Nobody's perfect.

Default Re: Showdown #9

This is a showdown between two songs I dislike.

I absolutely hate Welcome to Try, with his angry slap at his kids and family, and screechy singing in a register 2High4Him.

If There's a Reason is also 2High, but it wins by default, IMO.
