BTO VS. STARSHIP
My Canadian cousin, Ian Butters, sent me this as a fun joke and says he is working on a whole series of “versus” collections that pit two classic seventies acts against each other in a sudden death confrontation.
A ground rule of the battle is that one group is American while the other is Canadian. Each group is allowed seven songs to prove how hard they actually rock, but another ground rule dictates they must also have intricate, well-crafted “mellow” ballads suited to having sex.
The mind reels with combinations- which Yanks should be paired with April Wine or Chilliwack?
BTO-LET IT RIDE
BTO-LOOKIN’ OUT FOR #1
BTO-QUICK CHANGE ARTIST
BTO-TAKE IT LIKE A MAN
BTO-YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHING YET
JEFFERSON STARSHIP-COUNT ON ME
JEFFERSON STARSHIP-LIGHT THE SKY ON FIRE
JEFFERSON STARSHIP-LOVE TOO GOOD
JEFFERSON STARSHIP-WITH YOUR LOVE
