Default Re: One Hit Wonder Tournamant - (BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS vs RAPPER'S DELIGHT)

Never cared for Rapper's Delight even when it EXPLODED onto the charts
in the early 80s. As for Breakfast at Tiffany's...it was a decent song but
it came around at a time for me personally where I had pretty much decided
that Rock music was officially dead, and the "STUFF" they were calling
rock music was just what my kids were listening to.

New Wave, Frat Rock, Grung, Alternative Music blah, blah, blah.
They were calling it a lot of different things at that time and all I knew
about it was it was something I never cared for.

This particular matchup for me is one I could basically just decide not to
vote for at all because of my personal opinion on both. I did however vote
for Breakfast At Tiffany's because even though I basically "Tuned
Out" most of the 90s "STUFF", I did do a re-visit of some of it in the early
2000s and found a little of it to be decent music even though it wasn't
something I'd consider good Rock music. Most of the revisits came from
either hearing the song in a movie soundtrack or over a store's PA system
while I was out shopping that got me interested enough to look it up on
YouTube and give it a listen.

On a scale of 1-10

Rapper's Delight gets a 3

Breakfast at Tiffany's would get a 4.5


I voted for Breakfast at Tiffany's in this matchup
