Title: Song vs. Same name song
Post by: Hombre_de_ningun_lugar on March 20, 2011, 05:38:45 PM
This game is like the Song vs. Song one, but this time you have to choose between two songs with the same name by two different artists. If you can, put a video for each song.

I'll start with this: "Bluebird" (Buffalo Springfield) vs. "Bluebird" (Paul McCartney)


Buffalo Springfield - Bluebird (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UyooPeFbkQ#)

Paul McCartney & Wings Bluebird (2010 Remastered). (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5RL4-AnBBY#)

Here's one that goes back even further...

Benny Goodman and His Orchestra - "Let's Dance" (10" 78 rpm record) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eC03b-30mE#)

David Bowie sustained an injury to his left eye in a fight at age 15.  Although he underwent surgery to repair the damage, his left pupil remains permanently dilated (mydriasis).

Thanks for the participation, but most people didn't remember to choose between one of the two songs.

America - I Need You ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qk-7n1hdK3M#[/url])
The Beatles- I Need You ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8xzAy1jqMQ#[/url])


Several songs have that name really, apart from those two I remember "I Need You" by the Who (a Keith Moon's song!) and "I Need You" by the Kinks.

Technically, the song was called Someone To Love when The Great Society recorded it in 1965...

No, I can't choose a favorite.  I consider both songs great for different personal reasons.  The Beatles" song is fun, but Neil Young's song has significant meaning considering the time it was written.  I'll defer to someone else to make a choice.

Neil's song surely has more merits, and the Beatles' song is not one of the best from A Hard Day's Night, but somehow I still like it.

It was really tempting to say The Beach Boys because I love "Pet Sounds" and I am ashamed to say I was not familiar with Paul's song. After a closer look though I have to choose Paul's very touching "Here Today". This video sealed the deal:

Paul McCartney/John Lennon - Here Today (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjwnWU6OsaI#)

The long...
The Doors - The End (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGXeXm0uMDo#)

and the short of the end.

Actually I've already posted those two songs, and you chose the Beatles' one! :)

For me, it's hard to choose, both are classic moments in Rock history. Maybe the Beatles' track has the edge, because of those brilliant solos and the cosmic final lyric.

In the matter of The Rolling Stones "Good Times" vs Love's "Good Times" I rule in favor of The Stones. It's a nice cover of the Sam Cooke song.
Love does do a neat little ending though.

Just a note about Crazy as performed by Patsy Cline.  It was a crossover hit for her in 1961.  Sure, it was country alright as Willie Nelson wrote it...

Willie Nelson-Crazy album 1961 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01fZukDdM14#)


But what a hit for Linda Ronstadt and others...

You know Gran Parsons was with the Byrds during a brief time and recorded Sweetheart Of The Rodeo in 1968, considered as the first true Country Rock album. I must say that I'm not a fan of that record (though I'm a huge fan of the Byrds), but I dig his work with the Flying Burrito Brothers, especially their album The Gilded Palace Of Sin (1969).

About the game, I cannot listen to the songs here at work, I'll do it at home.

While I enjoyed being introduced to "the Latino equivalent of Simon and Garfunkel" (thank you Google), I have to pick The Beach Boys. Those harmonies just melt me.

My cousin posted this one on Facebook. I never heard this version before....

This was tough but I'll go with Poco. I like the way they started out very country, then shifted away a bit then back to the country sound. I didn't know they went back so far. I think of them from the 70's with "Crazy Love".

This was tough but I'll go with Poco. I like the way they started out very country, then shifted away a bit then back to the country sound. I didn't know they went back so far. I think of them from the 70's with "Crazy Love".

Now, in honor of The Rutles' special day..."Another Day"
The Rutles: Another Day ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWoLvZmJpyk#[/url])

This one is from Dirk McQuickly and his post-Rutles band The Punk Floyd. No, just kidding, it's that other guy; what was his name again? He was in a band that tried to be as big as The Rutles.  ;D

"Another Day" By Paul McCartney ([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw_Jao8hMPA#[/url])


Thanks In My Life!

Interesting song that of the Rutles. I'll vote for them there.

Another chance for Paul, if he hasn't had enough, vs. who knows WHO.

Even though I really like John Sebastian this particular song didn't do much for me. Pink Floyd's "Money" is really the only one of their songs that I like so I should pick that but, predictably, I'm going with The Beatles.

Just to prove that I am not totally stuck on the Fabs I won't offer up their version of this song but rather the original "Words of Love".

Easy choice. 'Holiday' is easily one of my favourite Kinks songs. Just an incredibly pleasant melody and fine lyrics. Love Ray's funny voice at the beginning, too. Great tune from the forgotten masterpiece, 'Muswell Hillbillies'.

"Holiday, oh what a lovely day today,
I think I'll get down on my little ol' knees and pray, thank you Lord,
Thank heaven for this holiday..."  :)

But The Bee Gees song is okay, too.

Not a fan of Led Zeppelin and all their pompous music. Besides, "Stairway To Heaven" is a rip off of Spirit's "Taurus". Neil Sedaka's song is nice and has the simplicity of the early days, I choose his tune.

LOL Looks like you were channeling John Lennon there! I don't know much about Tom Waits so I Googled while I listened and read this:

Waits has a distinctive voice, described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car." Be that as it may, I like his poignant song, but I like Jefferson Airplane's better. I just plain like Jefferson Airplane! I was surprised to see that this Strawberry Fields-like video aired on a Perry Como special. I don't remember seeing cool stuff like that when my dad made us watch them! (He worked for a company that was one of Perry Como's sponsors.)

I don't know much about Tom Waits either, but I had recently listened to that nice tune that is named like one of my favorite Jefferson Airplane songs, so I used it for the game. By the way, very good comparison that you made with the video of "Strawberry Fields Forever".

"Words Of Love" is one of my favorite Beatles covers, so it wins. But I've always enjoyed that song by the Mamas & the Papas.

Yes, it is! I've always thought that "Martha" has an Indian sound, because of the sound of the acoustic guitars and especially the strange electric guitar solo. Also the bizarre flute gives the song a nice touch.

Actually I think that the whole After Bathing At Baxter's album is usually misunderstood, but that's not a surprise because it's the most experimental album of an experimental band like Jefferson Airplane.

Nice analysis! The album seemed less bizarre to me as it went on but after the second track anything would seem normal! I was actually quite surprised to learn that it predated the White Album because that track sure sounds like it was influenced by Revolution 9. I like the way it ends: "No man is an island...he's a peninsula!" I've got to really listen to it again, when I  can sit down and give it my full attention.

What would you prefer to find in the middle of a desert? Zombies or Oasis?

Don't Go Away - The Zombies

Oasis - Don't Go Away


I'm not one for scary things but I'd take the Zombies over Oasis any day!

I'm going to take liberties here with the titles and put the Dells up against the Four Seasons:

The Dells: Oh, What a Night

The Four Seasons: December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)

I vote for the Dells' song, sounds more natural, I guess because it's an older recording.

On the road again... Lovin' Dylan vs. Bob Spoonful!

You're funny! The Dylan video got pulled but I found it again. He's getting harder and harder to find on YouTube.

http://youtu.be/EhlsM2m4YXE (http://youtu.be/EhlsM2m4YXE)

So even though they woke up I have to go with Dylan. His song really makes me laugh, especially that last verse.


Bobby Darin wrote the song "I'll be There" that Gerry and the Pacemakers recorded, but I'm offering up their version since we're commemorating the British Invasion.  It's up against the Motown incarnation of that title by the Jackson Five.

Yes, the original versions of Dylan's songs are hard to find now!

Although I'm a huge fan of the British Invasion, I enjoyed more the Jackson Five's song.

It's alright, the British Invasion vs. the San Francisco Scene.

I remember when I was about 12 and listened to Roxette, as many kids of my age did around those days in the early 90's. But when I got older, I started to prefer older music, so much that I even fell in love with Zombies!

I was actually expecting you to say, "Who's The Sweet?" but then you came up with that version I never knew about. Nice! But I probably wouldn't have preferred that until 11th grade in 1979. :)

This version of the other "Fox on the Run" looks to be right up your alley:
