Battle of the Bands - Romeo & Juliet
The film West Side Story was loosely based on the same idea. Two lovers associated with two rival gangs, fall in love regardless. SPOILER ALERT: This film doesn't end well for the lovers either.
In this edition of Battle of the Bands, we take a look at the song 'Romeo & Juliet', a song performed by Dire Straits. Unlike Taylor Swifts, 'Love Story', which has a fairly satisfying ending (so sue me, I'm a romantic), Dire Straits song, like the films above, has no happy love story ending.
Who do you feel performs this song the best? The two contenders are shown below. Edwin McCain and the Indigo Girls
(Thanks Kate for the song suggestion.)
Those are the two contenders. Ignoring the actual videos, who do you think performs the song best? I collected the two bands to battle it out, now it's your job. Time to vote on your favourite. Please vote for your preferred song choice and let me know in the comments. Additionally, let me know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 15th when I'll cast my own vote and announce the winner in a separate posting.
Do you believe it's better to have loved and lost?
Or do you believe it's better to have never loved at all?
What is your favourite love song?
Do you believe love stories typically end more like the Dire Straits song or the Taylor Swift song?
