Oddball Matchup Round 2: Bolshy has new competition

#1 Post by York Minster » Sat 15 Sep 2018, 6:51 am

Bolshy won round 1. But now the competition gets more interesting.

Winner is the album version, no remixes should be brought into consideration.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

Yeah Bolshy is going to win this. Calling it now.
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

That’s a serious oddball mash up. Who the hell voted for Winner?????

Questions:

All the people who profess to like Winner. Do you just like Bolshy more?

I wonder if Different Point of View would also beat Winner.

One hit wonder and postscript would beat Winner.

The fact is that I tend to skip Bolshy when I listen to Electric and I do not skip Winner when I listen to Elysium. Winner wins.

I think Bolshy has the most amazing (is it called a bridge?) in the middle where it works up to the final chorus. It's one of my favorites on Electric.
I quite like Winner though hate the way Neil sings "Let's enyoyidoooorrrlll while it lasts" :-) It's kinda middle of the road and doesn't sound like a proper PSB song, but it's OK.

I'll vote Bolshy easily, but won't completely denounce Winner.

Why can't we just enyoyidoooorrrlll while it lasts :-)

I hope Building A Wall gets an outing at some point.

It's definitely an oddball, but also one of my all time favourites.

One of my favorites too. Does not seem to be a fan favorite, although it also doesn't get mentioned in the embarrassing lists.

My two favorites from Yes are Building a wall and Legacy. Flame me now.

Building a wall is definitely one of my most favourite PSB songs, and I really like Legacy too. Don't need to fight you.
