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

I actually like 'Breakfast' better than 'Rapper's', but Rappers Delight jump started an entire genre of music (some would disagree it's music). I gotta give it props even though, like Spurt, I didn't like it much.

Tough call for me as I kinda like both of them, but not tremendously. Therefore, I'll make my choice on the totally excursive reasoning that breakfast is an awesome meal, so Deep Blue Something it is :-d

I'd rather gouge my own eyes out than listen to either of them, but picked Rapper's Delight for it's historic significance.

I went with RD. I think breakfast is the most overrated meal of the day. Not breakfast food mind you but just eating early I suppose.

No such thing as an overrated meal, imo :-))
