Same Title, Different Song VIII




Hey yooooooooooou guys!

Today's battle centers around the age-old desire for European supremacy. In one corner, we have Pink Floyd, renowned progressive rockers hailing from England, while across the narrow stands German glam rock band Tokio Hotel.

At first glance, this contest would appear the biggest of no-brainers. I mean, it's Pink Floyd, right? Riiiiight? Yeah, I suppose, but then again, hasn't the song in question been played to death at this point? I'm not saying it's a bad song by any means, but after hearing it on the radio in excess of 62,347 times it has lost some of its appeal. Granted, if you're anything like my brother and believe that rock music ceased to exist sometime in the mid-Eighties (with the proliferation of Poison, Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, Ratt, etc.) then by definition, Pink Floyd is the only choice.

Then again, Tokio Hotel isn't exactly the greatest band in the history of the universe (and neither is the song) so...


Pink Floyd - Hey You

Tokio Hotel - Hey You

So, you've heard the song on the radio 62,348 times, or is 62,347 just the time at which you decided to stop counting, yet you do remember that since that time, you have heard the song on the radio at least once but probably several times, all indeterminate beyond the sense of "more," since you've stopped counting? I fear that this question will make you realize that there is a typo in the representation of the count and that realization will distract you from addressing my battle between two possibilies inspired by your battle between two very different possibilies. I suppose this is fair, since I'm not addressing your dilemma figured as a battle quotidian.

The reality is that yes, Anonymous, I've kept count over the years and at 62,348 I said, to all in my company, "You know what? I've grown weary of this song."
