I thought I'd do the 2nd showdown of this topic,in Winter's Claw's abscence and hope when WC returns that it's okay. I'm just in the mood for another challenge. By the way,"Cat's In the Cradle won for the first challenge.

Here goes!

Do you prefer:

Neil Diamond: "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show"

or

Mark Lindsay's: "Arizona" ???

(If you're too young to recall Mark L's song,call up your oldies station and request it..and Neil's if you haven't heard that one. )

My vote of course is "B.L.T.S.S" / Neil Diamond.

"Arizona" is okay but I feel there's one too many instruments on it and it sounds way too "Hollywood" movie song "like".

Hi there, B'stone. "Arizona" (I'm just demeaning the song, not the state) seems to me just another piece of pop drivel; certainly not the worst song of its genre, but...
It's also badly dated; a song about trying to get some tripped-out hippy girl (with her "rainbow shades/Indian braids, hobo shoes") to come back to society doesn't exactly resonate nowadays.
I'm sort of a lukewarm fan of Neil Diamond; he's certainly lost his way over the years, but I liked him in H.S. and college--that is, his earlier stuff--and "Brother Love" is an interesting little piece, and his voice is really at its zenith here. The only thing I never understood is how this song, about a Christian revival out in the country, came out of a Jewish boy from New York. Still, it's well-done, quirky, and not the syrupy love stuff that he'd overdo later on. It gets my vote.
Regards,
DQ

No, Borderstone, I don't mind at all. Saves some work for me! I was getting around to posting a second showdown, which, coincidentally was going to feature a Neil Diamond song...I'll hold off on that one for awhile.

I love "Arizona." Great pop song with an ultra-catchy chorus. I'll vote for that one.

Now that Winter's Claw has returned and voted, I'll hand things back over.

The winner (obviously) is "Arizona". 4 votes.

Neil D.: 2 votes.
waaaaahhh *sniff*! Later!
