I liked both of these songs a lot.

I like STUCK IN THE MIDDLE WITH YOU more so

I voted for Stealers Wheel in this matchup

Stealers Wheel did have another Top 40 hit - "Star" hit #29 (yeah I don't remember it either), so Steam it is for me

Star was/is a great song

Anyway I voted for stuck in the middle. The other song is not really a good overall song. And it loses its appeal unless you're at a football game and your team is administering a blowout.

Will have to check it out. Maybe if I heard it I would remember. Sorry for the quick rush to judgment

The singer and songwriter in Stealers Wheel (and of this tune), Gerry Rafferty, also had solo hits--Baker Street being the most well-known. I don't know how that figures into the legitimacy of OHW status. Regardless, I voted for Stealers Wheel. Better song, and I figure the window for protest is closed once the tournament is underway.

For as much into Rock / R&B / Blues from the mid 60s through the 70s
and 80s that I was I can honestly say I'd never heard Star until I checked it out
on YouTube this morning. I can also honestly say I can't understand how
it got to #29 in the American Charts. I guess Stuck In The Middle With
You was just such a monster hit for them that they could have recorded
a version of the Mah nah mah nah song and it would have cracked the
top 40

Spurt did establish that different configurations counted as different acts, for which I in turn nominated USA For Africa

And one of the possible criteria of a OHW is for one song to overshadow all other work by the act, which would certainly qualify in this case, but I prefer the stricter definition of one Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Just my preference and I protest, I mean vote, accordingly

There's quite a few songs that were huge hits back in the day that warrant a "what were we thinking?" now.

A couple I can think of offhand:

Spurt I can see why that song doesn't hit you right away like the other one does, first off it's sung by the other dude, not by Gerry Rafferty. The other guy has a slower and more mellow voice. But if you really think about it, "Star" is very similar in spirit to a lot of other bands and songs of that time, it sounds real close to a lot of 1970s mellow rock like America, Gordon Lightfoot, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, that kind of stuff.

It's actually one of my favorite songs by them and has a real mellow sound which is very comparable to other hits of that time, even though it is drastically different from their big hit!
