    Song Showdown

    Inspired by @The Spruce Moose's artist showdown thread a while ago.

    Each round I'll pit two songs that are similar in some way, either by the same artist or by different artists.

    After at least 3 days or 7 votes have been reached (whichever comes first) anybody can do the next match up.

    Round 1: Blur - Country House vs. Oasis - Roll With It


    Blur - Country House: 1
    Oasis - Roll With It: 0

    blur - country house: the great escape is such a mess that even the successes are relative. country house really shouldn't work because it's such an unfocused hodgepodge of incongruent ideas that seem to have been thoughtlessly slammed together, forgetting that the path to good pop is calculated simplicity. of course somehow it still kinda works. the rickety jangle of the quirky guitar lines drive it forward as albarn does his typical uber-affected british yawning which is as equally lazy sounding as it is thoroughly relaxing. the backing vocals really help this one soar tho. the basic melody of the chorus and the backing vocals make me think of dr. dog and i suppose that's really what makes it work for me. it's incredibly rickety but it feels real. it feels like a bunch of dudes just hashing something out, rocking and havin a good time. a successful failure like so many blur tunes.

    oasis - roll with it: a fitting antithesis to the noble messiness of blur's track, oasis do what they do best, shove the beatles songbook in a blender, splatter it with disgusting amounts of sheen and proceed to shape it to fit the blandest 90s rock vibe. one of those songs so sanitized and smoothed out that every sound runs together and the space is completely lost. the guitar sound is dinky and muddy, the drums are muted and have no weight to them, and the vocals are oasis vocals, overbearing stadium rock wannabee fluff with no discernible emotion. as churned out feeling as i'd expect from oasis, there's just nothing here but a loud proud stupid noise.

    country house: 2
    roll with it: 4

    ok 1. someone should try to get this moved to media discussion as that's ostensibly what it is (assuming anyone puts effort in ofc)

    and 2. @Johnny Deformed are you gonna be doing every match or can other users submit match ups? it'd probably be more diverse the latter way

    @Jims P. Sullivan's thread reminded me of this. So... song vs. song:



    I like both, but I gotta go with R.E.M.
