POLL: CLASH OF TITANS (1976): Battle Between Songs - KISS Vs THIN LIZZY

Post by Dark Demon »

Two remarkable classic songs from the 70’s
Two terrific bands, Beautiful melodies, touching lyrics, strong chorus, great solos, nice vocals, great riffs...
Welcome to: The Clash of Titans!!

This poll will run for 3 days!

On the last poll KISS’s ”I Still Love You” had 36% and LOST to SCORPIONS’s “No One Like You” with 64%

Kiss keeps the lead with: 24 wins - 9 Loss - 2 draws
Let's see how it goes in this new poll

Of course that here in the forum Kiss will always have an advantage but it has already tied and lost. It’s fun to watch the disputes and also find out about the musical tastes of other forum friends. Remember: The poll It’s all about your personal taste and not about which song made more success or which band is bigger. It's about the songs.. I will always try to match them by songs from the same year (or close enough), but sometimes it will be by theme. All songs are the studio versions.


Previous Clash of Titans Results:

KISS WON in the following polls:
DEUCE - 63% Vs Burn - 37%
SHOUT IT OUT LOUD - 53% Vs Boys Are Back in Town - 47%
CREATURES OF THE NIGHT - 57% Vs For Those About to Rock - 43%
A MILLION TO ONE - 54% Vs Too Young To Fall in Love - 46%
BLACK DIAMOND - 66% Vs Dream On - 34%
HEAVEN'S ON FIRE - 61% Vs Love Machine - 39%
WATCHIN’ YOU - 53% Vs Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - 47%
I LOVE IT LOUD - 62% Vs Balls To The Wall - 38%
KING OF THE MOUNTAIN - 72% Vs King of Rock and Roll - 28%
GOT TO CHOOSE - 59% Vs Doctor, Doctor - 41%
UNHOLY - 78% Vs Walk - 22%
ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE - 51% Vs You Shook Me All Night Long - 49%
LET ME GO ROCK’N’ROLL - 52% Vs It’s Only Rock’n’Roll - 48%
LICK IT UP - 60% Vs Separate Ways - 40%
ALMOST HUMAN - 60% Vs Godzilla - 40%
KING OF THE NIGHT TIME WORLD - 61% Vs Carry On Wayward Son - 39%
NAKED CITY - 59% Vs Juke Box Hero - 41%
CRAZY CRAZY NIGHTS - 62% Vs The Final Countdown - 38%
WHO WANTS TO BE LONELY - 52% Vs Wild Child - 48%
MAGIC TOUCH - 68% Vs Lay It On The Line - 32%
SWORD AND STONE - 78% Vs The Calling - 22%
I STOLE YOUR LOVE - 67% Vs Bat Out Of Hell - 33%
HOTTER THAN HELL - 92% Vs Hold Back The Water - 8%
MAKIN’ LOVE - 51% Vs Back in the Saddle - 49%

KISS LOST in the following polls:
POISON - 62% Vs Hide Your Heart - 38%
STILL ON THE NIGHT - 69% Vs Turn on The Night - 31%
SOMEBODY TO LOVE - 66% Vs Beth - 34%
NOVEMBER RAIN - 65% Vs Every Time I Look at You - 35%
MORE THAN A FEELING - 70% Vs Hard Luck Woman - 30%
YOU’VE GOT ANOTHER THING COMIN’- 51% Vs War Machine - 49%
TOM SAWYER - 76% Vs Dark Light - 24%
THE TROOPER - 71% Vs Young and Wasted - 29%
NO ONE LIKE YOU - 64% Vs I Still Love You - 36%

KISS TIED in the following polls:
Thrills In the Night - 50% Vs Bringing On The Heartbreak - 50%
I Was Made For Lovin’ You - 50% Vs Dance the Night Away - 50%

Do you have any suggestions for The Clash of Titans poll? Great, inbox me.
Just keep in mind that the songs should have the closest possible release year or a similar theme.
I received a suggestion and from now on I will always put the song that KISS is competing with right below the poll.

Tough one!

I've always loved "Do You Love Me", but, man, the lyrics of "Don't Believe A Word" are soooo great! And it's such a beautiful little song!

I'll go with Lizzy, because right now I'd rather listen to that instead of DYL

Big fan of both of these. Don't Believe A Word wins this for me but it's not so much a perceived better or worse, just personal stuff (and that fierce version with Gary Moore on Whistle Test, I mean... bloody hell!).

Wow

Another KISS-VS-LiZZY poll from the same year as the first one. :thumbup:

Voted for LIZZY, (IMO) "Do You Love Me" never sounded finished. Nice bridge though.

Who needs em anyway? :lol: Absolute professionals.

To be fair, my first gig with a tribute band was as a dep playing bass and I killed the E string mid-set and carried on with 3. Got a lot of attention from the musos after the gig congratulating me for making it through without a spare. My main thought at the time was joy at the attention because had I the common sense to pack spares nobody would have praised me for that :lol:

I love the Thin Lizzy song, but I'll have to go with Do You Love Me here.

I'm always surprised to see the negative comments DYLM gets. To me it's 100% killer. :thumbup:

I don't understand either, DYLM is a great song. However, in this poll "Don't Believe a Word" wins IMO.
