Well I guess my acceptance video is the one I posted in the comments: ;

This is a great song as the lyrics talk of breaking down the barriers between cultures and allowing everyone to come together simply as members of the human race and I think that is simply a great cause. The song itself is great as well - very lyrical and easy to listen to. As this round is only 'acceptance' I think I can end my synopsis here - my future ones will be a bit longer.

I wish my opponent the best of luck and hope this debate can bring out the best that music has offered us in the last few decades.

Well, my opponent has ignored the ruling that the acceptance video can not be used, so I ask the audience not to count it. The game actually starts round 2.

Funny
-----------------


This song is "Amish Paradise", and it was created by Weird Al Yankovic, a famous parody singer of the 80's and 90's. The song parodies "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio, with guest star L.V. The song has 20 million views on youtube, and is Weird Al's Second most popular song on youtube after "White and Nerdy". I had actually debated whether I would use that song, but I decided that it has been overplayed, while this song might seem new and fresh to listeners.

Sorry about round 1, I thought I had to repost my acceptance video into the acceptance round, as that seemed logical. For round 2, I will elect the song Nice Guys by . This song is not only funny, it has a great message for guys who are struggling to get girlfriends. In terms of views, it has 50 million which trumps my opponent's video and is definitely more funny. Enjoy. ;

This song is called "Crazy", and it was performed by Gnarls Barkley, a collaboration duo between Danger Mouse and Ceelo Green aka. Brian Joseph Burton and Thomas Decarlo Callaway. It was an extreme commercial success, and was met with critical acclaim. The song was designed to convince listeners that the singers were "crazy".

Since my opponent has posted a song about the singer going crazy, I felt like I should do the same to make it easier to judge. Here it is in all it's glory: ;

This song has been met with tremendous critical acclaim, being listed in the Book of Guiness World Records in 2002 as the top British single of all time. There have also been grammy nominations, named best British single of 1952-77, and numerous other accolades.

The song itself has six distinct sections that explore new musical motifs and tell a different story - overall, it's a great song and it is so inspiring to see someone could come up with a piece of work this great.

Ha, good one. I almost used that particular song, but I see a lot of people get bashed on for overplaying it.

Anyways, next song is "November Rain" by Guns and Roses. Considered one of the best classic rock songs of all time by many, it is a power ballad sung by Axl Rose, and in my opinion, has a awesome guitar solo. I was very conflicted on whether I would choose this or "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin.

Just don't know how to explain this song. Makes me laugh all the time. 70 million views on youtube, sung by the band Gorrillaz. A band made up of fake members. The song is called " Clint Eastwood" and I can't even explain what its about.

Man, now I got bohemian rhapsody stuck in my head. One reason why I epitomize that song. "Mama.... Once Killed a man....... Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger now hes dead. ...... Mama, oohhhoho. Unfortunately, I never could stick with the song after 3:35.

Hm, well maybe we should not include views to make it fair? Up to you.
Posted by simpleguy 3 years ago
simpleguy
The key point was not that it had more views, but that it was a better song. I just put the views there because you did as well.
