The Title Title: Crazy
Last week, Tunesmate remembered MTV’s Friday Night Video Fights from the mid-1980s. This week, we’re starting a similar kind of song contest, tentatively called “The Title Title.” (Suggestions for a better name are encouraged.) In this game, two different songs with the exact same title square off to see which artist did the song title more justice. That artist then wins the title–i.e., the “The Title Title.”
Sparring in our first contest are “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley and “Crazy” by Aerosmith. Who gets your vote for a better song named “Crazy”?
And, don’t worry, we haven’t forgotton the likes of Patsy Cline and Icehouse. Perhaps the winner of this contest can square off against each of those (or the winner of a match between those two) someday …
