Friday Face-Off : Round 1

A new, and hopefully regular, feature here at funfunfun, The Friday Face-Off. Basically Neb and i both pick a song, chosen around a pre-determined theme. write a bit of blurb about it and you, the reader, have to choose a winner by the method of voting, so just leave a quick comment please.
This week's theme was a song for getting ready for the weekend/friday night, so i hope these songs get you ready for tonight's antics, whatever they are. And please vote otherwise this won't work.

So in the red corner is Tim 'Termintor' Murray

RockNRoll Motherfucker - The D4

Want to get in the mood for going out on a friday night? Just stick this track on and just over two minutes later, you'll be ready. Its a song that will make you jump around your bedroom, spilling your bottle of beer everywhere while you shout along and play some awesome air guitar. With the mexican-esque woah at the start and the x-ray vision sound effect, this song is fast, raw, dirty, energetic, fun, contains swear words and doesn't end with you throwing up down an alley or pulling an ugly bird, which pretty much describes a perfect friday night bender anyway.

And in the blue corner, Neb 'Never Lost A Battle' Weddell

I Am The Mob - Catatonia

Everyone's gotta love a good flashback to start the weekend. Awesome friday night tune, clearly the happiest ong ever to reference the mafia. Also has a kick-ass refrain about sleeping with the fishes along with one of the greatest opening lines in music history. If this doesn't make you smile and want to take a break from desperately trying to find some clean socks and dance about your room for 3 minutes, I don't know what will. Now all together, "I PUT HORSES HEADS IN PEOPLE'S BEDS COZ I AM THE MOB..."
(p.s. You know winning this would really put the icing on Cerys Matthews triumphant comeback, do it for Cerys dammit!)

So there you are, two great songs but only one can win and its up to you. You've got til midday on monday, so all the weekend, to make your opinion known so do it.

I'm going with the D4, as I can't stand that Catatonia song. Plus I've just discovered that not only do you have the same first name as me, but the same surname too.

one-nil to me, and wow!! thats quite a coincidence, never met another one of us before

Gotta go for the D4 track there, my decision is purely based on the fact that I was tapping my feet along with that one and the Catatonia track did not induce motion into me!

I'm gonna get my ass kicked by a Tim Murray coalition, damn, seems I've overestimated people having fond memorys of Catatonia
