Decades Feeder Bracket - 1987 Championship
« on: November 11, 2017, 07:43:29 PM »
In a year where heavy music ruled, we get two really good pop songs.  Instantly recognizable as soon as they come on the radio.  I honestly have no idea which way this will go.  I like it!  Have at!!

Well due to really not liking songs or bands the last two rounds have made my picks super easy.
Insert witty comment here.

That was a surprise that GnR didn't make it. Not that I don't like Peter Gabriel, but...

This vote is a bit easier. Peter Gabriel is awesome, but U2...

30 years ago, I was probably a way bigger fan of U2 than Gabriel. But over time my admiration for U2 faded big time. But there a couple songs I still like, this is one of them. Gabriel back then, he was too pop for me, now I appreciate his talent a lil more, but U2 still won my vote for this one.

And I am the exact opposite.  30 years ago, I was digging whatever Pete put out and didn't care at all for U2.  Now, my love for Pete hasn't diminished, but, all those U2 songs I absorbed over the years fit my ear much better.  Where the Streets Have No Name is one of my favorites by them.  Still voted for Pete though ;)

When I first started in EMS I had a partner with tons of street experience. He loved U2 and this song especially. There was something cathartic about Where The Streets Have No Name playing at 5am, heading back to the main building after a long 12-hour shift.

It's U2 for me :)  where the streets have no name, is one of my favourite songs that they do. I still like the Peter Gabrielle song, but if I had to decide which of those two songs I would play and listen to first... It would be U2. So therefore, that is what's deciding my vote :)
