The Bee Gees- 'Holiday'

Holiday - The Kinks



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.

Hmm, what about...

Elton John - Friends


The Beach Boys - Friends


Led Zeppelin Friends

Yes, what a dark view of the life is Muswell Hillbillies, isn't it? Certainly a classic record.

I choose the Beach Boys song, beautiful!

Laura Branigan - Gloria [1982]


Darn it!  Those are both great songs.  I like how Laura Branigan's Gloria was used in the ice skating scene in Flashdance.  But I like Van Morrison and Them's Gloria just a bit better.  At the time of its release, I liked The Animals and I actually thought they were singing it.  That's AM radio for ya!


But I want to give Laura Branigan a second chance.  She deserves it...

Wow, I've neglected my favorite game for so long that the Who video isn't even on YouTube anymore! I found it in another one though and now I have a new Who song that I like. Paul's wasn't as much fun.  :)


I found three different songs that share this title but eliminated poor Mary Wells right off the bat. That leaves...

Thanks for reviving the game, Kelley!

Both songs are nice, but I choose the one by Janis.

I'll go with Spirit because it scared me less! Boy, I'm glad 1984 didn't turn out as bad as people thought it might.

This is an easy one for me. I really love The Who's version. In fact I was just listening to it earlier. But "Eight Days a Week" is a good song too.  :)

Now...two songs so different its hard to believe they have the same name:

Neil Sedaka - Stairway to Heaven (1960) (Embedding disabled, limit reached)

or

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.

I've never heard either before but I was expecting to pick the Spoonful because, well, I just love John Sebastian but Ringo's song is very sweet and I do like it better so I'll pick that. ;) And I see what you mean about Spirit's song. Another new one to me. That's what I like about this forum; I've learned a lot here!

Hi Kelley, I was missing this game! That Ringo's song was written by Paul McCartney, if I'm not wrong.

Nice tune that from Sinatra & Basie, but I'm a rocker, you know, so Young wins.

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.)

Now I almost embarrassed myself by repeating one you already did but I decided that changing Buddy Holly to The Beatles made it okay:

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.

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

I don't have a song yet but I just wanted to mention that I listened to "After Bathing at Baxter's" for the first time yesterday and was pleased to discover that it includes "Martha". It is a great song!

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.
