I keep forgetting to put the poll in the right sub. Sorry, Horacewimp!
Ok so Your Song dominated round six, and plows forward in the contest.
Round seven pits the lighter than air pop song with deceptively dark lyrics, Superstar by the Carpenters up against a quintessential 80's pop ballad, True by Spandau Ballet. Remember to vote in the poll or your vote won't count.
lol me too. I rationally know that Superstar is the better song and that True is just a bland Roxy Music rip off but when it came out it was so much cooler than the other horrible 80s crap and it's always been one of my favorites of that dark decade.

'Superstar' for me.
There was a time when I'd have no hesitation in choosing 'True'. But since heard Roddy Frame mention in an interview that he once played 'Back on Board' backstage to a Kemp, I find that my enjoyment of the Spandau track has dimmed due to the even slight similarities -
Superstar all the way for me, it would beat all the other songs too if I were in charge
Easy, Speedy Gonzalez! Have in mind we have only had 7 rounds so far, which means only 14 out of the 32 songs which are competing have been revealed, while 18 are yet to be discovered. I know there isn't much of a chance that Muse will appear in a softies contest, but who knows? Maybe a favourite of yours is one of the contestants and at a certain point -provided both songs qualify- you end up voting against "Superstar".
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.
Mind you, it's scarily easy to completely forget songs that once you couldn't stop playing. One of the curses of growing older I suppose. So it's entirely possible that there's something still to come up that will blow Superstar out of the water, bring it on!
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
