Afternoon Delight was like driving by a 80 mile per hour head on collision
on the highway. You knew the people in the car were pretty much the
consistency of ground beef but as you dive by it, you couldn't resist looking
at the accident out of an overwhelming sense of curiosity.
It's one of those really "Sappy" songs of the 70s that you couldn't turn
off when it played on the radio and you were trying to listen to stuff like
Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, Grand Funk Railroad, Cream etc......
One of those songs like Chevy Van, Please Come To Boston, Summer
Breeze etc.......

Ride Captain Ride wasn't really a favorite song of mine, but it had more
of an R&B flavor to it than Afternoon Delight and since I was more into the
R&B / Blues type rock than Top 40s Pop music I'm voting for Ride Captain
Ride in this matchup.

Trivia bit that I only found out recently listening to a SiriusXM 70's On 7 replay of Casey Kasem's American Top 40 countdown show - "Afternoon Delight" was the title of a menu item that the singer/songwriter for the band saw in a restaurant, and from there he wrote the song with a bit of a different meaning to it. (Bonus trivia: Paul Simon's "Mother And Child Reunion" was similarly inspired by a chicken and egg dish at a restaurant he went to)

Now given that I just voted for Deep Blue Something in the other matchup based on a random love of breakfast, you would think I would go the similar route here. But I do in fact think "Ride Captain Ride" is a much cooler song so I'm going Blues Image for this one :rock:

I like both of these but went with Afternoon Delight because I like a bit of Afternoon Delight every now and then. Morning, evening, and night too.

Ride Captain Ride is about the USS Pueblo incident, which is kind of neat.

I'm going with Afternoon Delight based on meaning alone.
