Third time’s a charm, right? We’re going to do the “same name, different songs” thing again, only this time we have two songs that were Top 10 hits about 20 years apart. The name of the song in either case is “Cherish,” and here are the contestants.
Kool & The Gang
Released in 1985, the third song from the band’s 1984 album Emergency, this song was a #1 hit on the Adult Contemporary chart six weeks running and was certified Gold by RIAA.
From their 1966 album And Then… Along Comes The Association, this was a #1 hit on the Hot 100 for three weeks and ultimately was named the #2 song for the year.
You probably know what to do by now, but here are the instructions in case you’re new to this:
- Listen to the two songs.
- Decide which song you like the best.
- Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
- Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:
Remember, you can vote in this battle whether or not you have a battle of your own. All you need are at least one good ear and your opinion.
I’ll announce the winner next Sunday, September 22, so be sure and get your vote to me by then.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Kool & The Gang and The Association!
