BCB kills its idols - Match 2

Postby gash on ignore » 04 Nov 2016, 22:35

Only one can survive the cull. Vote for the one you want to keep.

Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman
The Carpenters - Superstar
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Glen by a jillion streets. I like me some Carpenters, but "Superstar" was never one of my favorites. And "Lineman" is Campbell's (and Webb's) finest.

Carpenters for me, utterly devastating.

I don't hate it but could never see what the fuss about it was. The Carpenters for me too.

I'd abstain but for sentimental reasons voted GC as my departed One loved both those acts but that song in particular.

A close one for me, but I'll take Campbell.

Glen for Gentle On My Mind & I Knew Jesus. He should have rocked more often.

And ditched the strings (Wichita Lineman excluded. It's faultless.)
Jordan Peterson.. the best thing on the net...
Anyways, back to the Gulag Archipelago now
