I'll See You On the Dark Side of the Stairway to Heaven

If you don't know about Alien Coffeeground's all Pink Floyd week, you should stop in at his blog and check it out.  In honor of Pink Floyd week, I thought I'd include them in this week's Choose and Defend Wednesday!  I did my best to come up with some other band that it could be considered fair to contrast or compare them to.  See those words...I did my best.   I'm sure there may be some other band that would have been somehow a more meaningful comparison, but I don't reckon I'm no rock n' roll expert, mang!   I figured, both British, huge, same time frame-ish.  Made sense to me.  Anyway,  here you have it and you know the way it goes, right?  You can only pick one of these two things.  The choice is between these two and a rousing defense of your choice is always highly appreciated!  So...what will it be, you crazy diamonds, you fools in the rain....

Pink Floyd

Led Zeppelin
Let's hear it...Choose and Defend!

Pink Floyd yo. I was into Zeppelin back in the day, Floyd is mellower, more spacey, which usually isn't my thing, but I like them.

Churlita said...

I think I'll go with led Zeppelin too. I like them both, but Zeppelin is a little more bluesy and rocks harder, so I'd probably listen to them more often than Pink Floyd who I only listen to when I'm in a more mellow mood.

Pink Floyd... enough said!

MrManuel said...

Zeppelin. I like Floyd, but Zeppelin is funner, more upbeat, faster, louder, etc.

FW said...

This is the most difficult of weeks! On one hand I have Led Zeppelin II and IV; on the other Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. Four of my most favourite albums in the world ever. If you put a gun to my head, I'd have to go with Zeppelin.

Led Zep. You don't necessarily have to be high to listen to their music.

Tara said...

"Don't tell me nobody here has ever gotten the Led out!"

Actually, I guess I pick Pink Floyd, but I've only listened to two songs of theirs: "Brick in the Wall" (which I really love) and "Learning to Fly"...which should certainly not be confused with Tom Petty's "Learning to Fly".

Do I even have to answer this one? I will anyway. PINK FLOYD. My reason is simple...Dark Side of the Moon.

Sebastien: So...your vote is going to, Pink Floyd yo? Yeah :-) One for Pink Floyd.

Churlita: Good defense. I like the bluesiness of Zeppelin too. One for Led Zeppelin.

Mrs: Ah, the no defense necessary defense! Two for Pink Floyd.

MrManuel: Alright! Bringing in the fun factor, I like it. Two for Led Zeppelin.

FW: While no guns were involved in the making of this blog, I think you have the right attitude! Three for Led Zeppelin.

Pamela: haha! Never been high a day in my life and have listened to all kinds of music! I like the spirit of your answer though. Four for Led Zeppelin.

Tara: School of Rock! Awesome. And yes, Pink Floyd and Tom Petty would be hard to confuse :-) Three for Pink Floyd.

AlienCG: I am not surprised by your answer, but yes, of course you have to answer!!! Thank you. Four for Pink Floyd.

Everyone: O. M. G. It be a tie! 4-4. Okay, we need some folks to come in and break this all down for us. Have your say!

Neither was a band I really listened to at the time, but I do love "Stairway to Heaven" so I suppose I'll vote for Led Zep.

Secret: A tie breaking answer! Five for Led Zeppelin.

Anyone else?
