Wayne and I were playing our game again the other day when I thought I had a clear winner.
"Elton 'Tiny Dancer!'"
"The Beatles, 'Back in the U.S.S.R.' Epic battle!"
And then we argued for ten minutes over which won. I love the Beatles, but I would totally listen to 'Tiny Dancer' if I had to choose between the two!
For the first time ever, we had to bring in a third party. I asked my friend Michelle which she would choose. I made sure not to sway her one way or the other.
"I don't remember the Elton John one."
"What??? What is wrong with you???"
I sang her a few lines. "Oh yeah. I kinda remember. Um. I guess I'd have to go with the Beatles since I don't really know it."
After I unleashed my fury upon her, I relayed her answer to Wayne. He pumped his fist in the air. And I thought that would be the end of it. Until I saw his Facebook status:
"If 'Back in the USSR' and 'Tiny Dancer' were to do battle, who would win???"It was on! I started polling the first people I saw. My parents.
They needed no time to think about it. "No question," my mom said. "'Tiny Dancer.'"
"That's not even a very good Beatles song!" My dad proclaimed.
Today, I asked my brother.
"Can I skip both and just listen to 'Party in the U.S.A.?'"
