This debate is specifically designed for dirkson. This debate shall be very fun. Use the best music you can think of from the 70's/80's. and only that music is allowed. There is a max of 500 characters (so you can say a sentence or two about the song) You have 1 day to post your argument. dirkson: Sorry about the last debate had too short of a time to post your argument. My first song shall be "Another Bites the Dust" by Queen.

I accept your challege!

First off, kudos to my opponent for picking an excellent song to start out with. Clearly, we could start and end this argument without budging an inch off of Queen, so I'd like to go in a completely different direction:

Kansas.

This song is performed entirely live! No machine tricks or pre-recorded tracks for these gentlemen.

Not a problem! We shall have a vote based on the duel of two epic songs, sir!

Disregard that errant voter, he knows nothing!

Cheers,

Keytar - Yeah, it's totally subjective! It's just for fun : )

This is one of my favorite songs of all time, despite the thinly veiled Christian/theist meaning in it. (If you didn't notice, listen closely to the lyrics. You'd probably get a kick out of it :) ) I REALLY enjoy Wayward Son too, but this song just /feels/ like an epic quest.

I'm also really impressed with their skill. This is a video of a live performance! Most popular performers now, even when performing "live", use heavy modification or just outright lipsyncing to get the job done.

Cheers,
-Dirk

Dirkson takes an early lead for using a song from Kansas. Additionally, most people think Kansas only ever did three songs (Carry On Wayward Son, Dust in the Wind, and some people are familiar with Point of Know Return). So kudos for using a song that isn't one of those three (although those are still great songs).
