.

.
more convincing arguments=diverse song choice
.
reliable sources=genres used

And I'm gonna take a leap of faith and play a hip hop song:

A prince in practice moans for the attention that he wants
but most of this town won't even dignify his ignorance with a response
left to a crowded foster home by a 15 year old mom
never been held in anyone's arms when you've never been moved its really hard to move on
A young saleswoman sets up shop when the sun sets
she'll make your wildest dreams come true at a price you wont forget
The sadly married set up alibis no harm no regret
hoping they meet an angel in bed that can wrestle the devil right out of their heads
This city runs fast, no one has time to sit with themselves,no time to look into our pain
or see the same despair in everyone else
its here, its there, its everywhere tears soak each card the dealers dealt
But time taught me how to see every second as heaven even though they're perfectly disguised as hell
And I refuse to let past bruises cover the light
it ain't all good, but its all good enough,
so I know I'm alright
agony is truth its our connection to the living I accept it as perfection and keep on existing in the now

I can only build if I tear the walls down
even if it breaks me I wont let it make me frown
I'm falling but no matter how hard I hit the ground
I'll still smile
I can only build if I tear the walls down
even if it breaks me I wont let it make me frown
I'm falling but no matter how hard I hit the ground
I'll still smile

...ear to ear as if that's all I'm here for
despite the wars founded by the rich, funded by the poor
kids barely 18 are dying so billionaires can make more
elsewhere hungry mothers watch their babies starve to death in a beat up shack on a dirt floor
The aged professor quotes "Freedom's without a path"
now he dresses like a widow and preaches "love is dead" in every class
But curiosity killed the cat and taught
the dog in him how to act
and it burned his bridge to Jill so he tries to drown the guilt with a bottle of Jack
Self proclaimed rebels say "We must oppose the system!"
"You gotta take a stand!" "If you're not against them you're with them!"
signs read "Support the troops bring em' home!" "No more innocent victims!"
but when a homeless veteran asks for spare change you're to busy protesting to even listen
And I'm no different I live in conflict and contradiction but it can be so beautiful
when I don't reject what lies within
It's beautiful the way agony connects us to the living
I think of the world when I hurt, and keep on existing in the now

I can only build if I tear the walls down
even if it breaks me I wont let it make me frown
I'm falling but no matter how hard I hit the ground
I'll still smile
I can only build if I tear the walls down
even if it breaks me I wont let it make me frown
I'm falling but no matter how hard I hit the ground
I'll still smile

Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be

Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've witnessed your suffering
As the battles raged higher

And though we were hurt so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the suns gone to hell
And the moons riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die

But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
Debate Round No. 1
Oryus

Pro

for all those born to serve
and those that chose to hide
(how many worker
bees died within our hive)
let their sadness be our blessing
let their losses
lead the way

the dark horse will one day come
to free the light from all of
us
one day the dark horse will come

for all those born to die
and those
that lost the fight
(how many fallen friends died within our sights)
let
their hard roads be our way out
let their passion lead the way

the dark
horse will one day come
to free the light from all of us
one day the dark
horse will come

no matter the man or the machine
beasts will become what
they were meant to be
in the name of lovers in the name of wars
we'll show
the demons for what they are

dark horse ride
towards the light
dark horse
ride
onward

towards to light
onward

Apollo 13/End Credits Theme

By James Horner, performed by Annie Lennox
Debate Round No. 2
Oryus

Pro

I am the key to the lock in your house
That keeps your toys in the basement
And if you get too far inside
Youll only see my reflection

Its always best when the covers up
I am the pick in the ice
Do not cry out or hit the alarm
You know were friends till we die

And either way you turn
Ill be there
Open up your skull
Ill be there
Climbing up the walls

Its always best when the light is off
Its always better on the outside
Fifteen blows to the back of your head
Fifteen blows to your mind

So lock the kids up safe tonight
Shut the eyes in the cupboard
Ive got the smell of a local man
Whos got the loneliest fear

That either way you turn
Ill be there
Open up your skull
Ill be there

Climbing up the walls
Climbing up the walls
Climbing up the walls

*sexy stare* Your move, christ-killer.

Never Gona Get It (Feat. Sean Biggs) - Akon

I'm from the hard knock academy
Automatically had to be
Carryin' automatics sprayin' sparatic inaccurate
Clips to the back of it
Barrel cockin' it immaculate
Learn to move packages in n out of Los Angeles
We savages, bustin' off rounds sprayin' banana clips
Knockin' pills off like Anna Nicole Smith
****, I'm in the hood walkin' with choppers
**** em and pop em coppers glauks be talkin' like
Blockedie block, block I'll probably popped Hoffa and possibly jus forgot where I tossed em
This *****s obnoxious, me and top got your picture in the cockpit
She wanna pit stop, jus see how the **** spit
These boss's deposit the profit they watch as we cop it on top of the ostrich and fox's
It use to be the lil guys in stress now Ima boss where I'm from, with the last stress on my chest

[Chorus]
See I know you'll like my swagger
No strap when I come through
Chain hangin' like Ali Baba
Know me, yah Know how I Do
The way that I move ***** (yah neva gonna get it)
Cause I'm to smooth ***** (yah neva gonna get it)
I thought you knew ***** (yah neva gonna get it)
You ain't got a clue ***** (yah neva gonna get it)

Who in the hell left the gate open? (Drama)
I'm pretty down for the wild, wild west
Like them 1800's in em stage coaches
If I ain't strapped then my blaze pokin'
If it ain't a 600 big body then the 6 4-0 honey is spokin'
The drama spokesman, streets endorsed em
I rather be up in my nine then closed in my coffin
I'm from Wes Covina, this ain't Compton
Still money passed around like we takin' an offerin'
I'm somethin' like a phenomenon
When they see the sad happy faces they know the drama is on
Its the west coast back at your front door
We up close and personal, we ain't done till the curtains close
Could be friend or foe, love it or hate it
I'm the king but I play with the Aces
Run up to find out I keep it loaded like bases
Yah wise in your mouth but need braces

[Chorus]

See when I walk through the door
I wonderin' why these fake *****s jackin' me for?
On display like I came from the store
Posin' like a mannequin in front of your hoe
Up front blockin' 151 peep now
Convicts Surround the whole compound
Cause you don't really want what your starin' at
Clip full of Bullets, don't mind sharin' that thing

[Chorus]

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

I would like to thank my awesome opponent for this wonderful debate.

Where is my mind - Pixies

Oh - stop
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind [3x]

Way out in the water
See it swimmin'

I was swimmin' in the Caribbean
Animals were hiding behind the rocks
Except the little fish
But they told me, he swears
Tryin' to talk to me, coy koi.

Where is my mind [3x]

Way out in the water
See it swimmin' ?

With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
If there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind [3x]

Oh
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Oh
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Oh
Oh

And don't originality & diversity kind of fall into the same thing?

I notice that I didn't give points by the criteria that oryus gave.. but, i dont understand it. Why would we give points for categories that have 0 points? I'll change it later if i have the time to look back here.

R1: Major props to Oryus for eyedea & alibies!!! WOOHOO. I liked the smooth grooviness of Airmax's pick but I have to give it to PRO for this round.

R2: Pro's choice was energetic, but a bit too chaotic for my tastes. I need some form of melody or groove in my metal. Con's had a lot of feel to it so this round goes to CON.

R3: Pro's radiohead pick was nice. Unique, edgy, sexy. Con's pick was decent. It had a good beat and I love rap music, but I've heard this kind of rap song so much, it didn't stick out in many ways. I think pro's pick had a more distinct feeling to it, so this round goes to PRO

R4: Pro's - dramatic with a little bit of creepy & quirkiness. Very pretty too. I really enjoyed this one. Con's - This is a great song with so much soul. A nice slow build up into an emotive piece. I am having trouble picking between these two because I enjoyed both songs but I will have to give it to PRO for picking something I haven't heard before.

R5: Pros- ohh, pretty melody. Nice guitar line. Nostalgic but got slightly boring imo. Con's - Very cool. Groovy and goofy and unique. This round goes to CON.

Pro 3 / Con 2 = Pro Wins. Good debate you two :)

hmmm... Airmax gets three points for having the most diverse song choices, eh? That doesn't match your stated reason, lannan http://cocktails365.files.wordpress.com...
