semi-final match # 4:
Please vote on your more favorite artist between Bob Marley and Talking Heads.

Rules are loose with March Music Madness, but the idea is to choose the band (or artist) you enjoy more, rather than which is “greater”, or more influencial, etc.

thank you.


Justifying your vote is not required, the event of a tie, winning band will be determined by the voter who posts the best justification (explanation) as to why they like the band they voted for (or why they don't like the other band).

I grew up with the Talking Heads (no not literally), but Marley came later in life for me. I aslo respect the "Heads" innovative style and the fact that they embraced so many different styles of music, yet still have a signature sound to call their own.

Bob Marley is Bob Marley, can't deny his greatness. However musically, you pretty much know what your getting with every album, and his politcal lyrics tend to alienate me after awhile, I mean for a guy who smokes that much ganja, you think he'd lighten up once in awhile! :p

P.S.: I forgot to select the option to make this poll public. I tried editing the post to add it back in, but I can't seem to edit the poll. Bummer, I enjoyed seeing who voted for whom. Oh, well, next time...

Heads. By a nose. That is all.

I certainly like them both, but the musical style of the the Heads suits me much better that Bob's reggae, and they're more representative of the music I grew up with.

I've been trying to change the damn thing but am having problems.

Oh well.

I like TH a lot and BMW, but if I had to choose I'd go with BMW.
