Don't forget to check back on previous polls that haven't closed yet!
In Your Eyes (Video) (Lyrics) is a great song, one I really like, that would make for a pretty dance. A really long, pretty, slow dance. The short version (!!!) clocks in at about 5 1/2 minutes.
Here Comes the Sun (Video) (Lyrics) has a very nice sense of "things are going to be ok from here on out." It's danceable and cheerful and appropriate but not entirely conventional.
While In Yours Eyes is arguably more romantic, it's unarguably really long. Therefore, Prediction: Here Comes the Sun.
I'm a Believer (Video) (Lyrics) is classic Monkees -- cute, goofy, a little weird, and insanely danceable. But... it's the Monkees. Debateably the prototypical boyband. Boyband, people.
I Believe in a Thing Called Love (Video) (Lyrics) is not even remotely grandmother-friendly. Well, not our grandmothers. That's not a deal-breaker, mind you, but as completely awesome the song is, it's pretty heavy on the sexuality.
Well, this is a fun match-up. The songs really couldn't be more different, despite the fact that they're essentially about the same thing. If we're going conventional, you have to go Monkees. If we're going unconventional, you have to go Darkness. Ths is another one where I won't complain if I'm wrong, but Prediction: I Believe in a Thing Called Love.
They Stood Up For Love (Video) (Lyrics) is a great song. It's very inspirational, very pro-love on a general basis -- not perfectly grandmother-friendly, if you look at the first line, though.
You're Still the One (Video) (Lyrics) is a good song. It's a crossover from the realm of country music, which is a pro for a lot of people, though not necessarily for us. I've actually heard punk covers of it that, while silly, were pretty good. The lyrics can't get much better, either.
You know, if I could talk the band into playng one of those punk covers, it wouldn't be a contest. I don't think they will, though, so Prediction: They Stood Up for Love
Just the Way You Are (Video) (Lyrics) is more danceable I think, and has more relateable lyrics -- maybe not the most complementary lyrics, but that's the point. Billy Joel belongs more to our parents' generation than ours, but there's nothing wrong with catering to the parents.
I Just Called to Say I Love You (Video) (Lyrics) is another one of those songs will make people smile when they realize that, while it may never have occurred to them, it's really a good choice. Plus it's a bit more upbeat (and a bit less possessive, let's be honest).
Stevie Wonder is a bit more optimisitc than Billy Joel. Prediction: I Just Called to Say I Love You.
