Staying Alive

Well... I can't quite call it the Monday-Matchup anymore.... doesn't fit the disco-title theme!

BUT STAYING ALIVE DOES!!!!


So welcome to the disco-ized version of the Monday Match-up!!!


For those of you not familiar with the match-up... the idea is simple. I mean, c'mon... I have a kid tear-assing around this house all day... you don't think I have the energy to do something DIFFICULT do you???


ANYWAYS... back to the rules.


simple. Each week I present a pairing of some sorts, and you get to choose who would kick who's ass. Now in the past it's been based on physical prowness alone... but this time, cause the 70's were full of drugs and shit that was just straight trippy man... well, this time we're going to allow talents to be considered in someone's ability to kick ass.


For example... if big boobs were weapons... Pam Anderson would knock out pretty much any competition.

(and yes, I realize that big boobs aren't necessarily a talent, but hey... in some cultures they might be, so just work with me...)

If dancing was a super-power... Napoleon Dynomite would smother Urkel.

get it?




ok... so once you figure out who you like better and for whatever reason... you simply leave a comment.

there's no prize, the contenders don't care, and frankly there's really no major point to it... but once you get in to it... it does get kind of fun... kinda like chicken fights... only different.


SOOOOOOO.....


to re-start the match-ups, I've decided to reach deep into my bell-bottomed pocket, and pull out two bands to square off.


this week... I give you....

the BEE GEES
vs
ABBA


I'm personally having a tough time with this. both are GREAT disco bands... love love love them both.... but the Gibbs are/were OH-SO gay (not much fighting power there) and well ABBA is ... well... aren't they from Sweden? yeah... what's THAT about??


so anyways... feel the fever, kids.... who's going to take home the belt this week?


DING DING.... let the comments begin!

Bee Gees!!!!! I mean shouldn't they win the Staying Alive competition? It wouldn't be right if they didn't...lol

Porq said...

I vote for the Bee-Gees.
ABBA being of Scandanavian decent, would have a rough time figuring out what "EAT SHIT AND DIE" means.. the Bee-Gees, Aussie dudes( I think..?) at least would know what the hell I'm talking about other than the "G'day Mate" shit.. so even though the Bee-Gees are from Australia, probably became US citizens?? i dunno..??
But anyway, the European suckers never paid back the good ol' USA for the War (WWII) debts (except for Finland) which includes England, FRANCE ( scumbags that they are!!) and a host of other euro dudes who suck!!!
BOTTOM LINE.. if you cannot understand what I'M SAYING...
ESAD!!!!

Go Bee-Gees !!!!!

OINK

Bees Gees....they sounded queerer than a 3-dollar bill, but Barry was pretty hot for the 70's!!

Laina said...

I think I might be too young for this particular "Staying Alive" but I'm going to go with the Bee Gees too. Because Staying Alive is so much cooler than Dancing Queen.

dnyduck said...

Ugg....I love both! This one is so hard! What to do? What to do?

I guess it will have to be ....

ABBA!

WAIT! No! Beeeeee geeeeeee, I don't know....I will stick with my first choice, ABBA!

Tee said...

My vote is for Abba. The Bee Gees creep me out... Besides, Scandinavian? I must vote for whoever brought us IKEA. Oh wait... That's from Sweden, right? Is that Scandinavian?

Oh well. I say they knock each other out cold at the very same time. How's that for diplomatic? LOL.

Jody said...

going to have to go with abba here. dancing queen? please. she dances and s/he's a QUEEN? that wins, hands down.

CheekyMoo said...

ABBA Scandanavian's are sort of muscley and hairy. Chicks that have to shave are pretty tough.

Pieces of Me said...

Yeah too young...but I will say BEE GEES...ah ah ah ah stayin alive!! TTYL

Liza said...

ABBA. Is there anyone else?

Lil Country said...

Yeah, you are probably going to want to smack me because the only thing that I remember about either of these was that my parents had a casette tape from Columbia house of both when I was little. Heck, I think they are both still in by the stereo....
And I'm not good with music stuff but I know I love Dancing Queen...

john boy said...

Come on, ABBA had two women in miniskirts and go-go boots. How can you beat that? :P

Susie said...

OMG! You are KILLING me!

I'm going to have to go with ABBA (so sad I can't reverse that first B). Anyone who's seen Muriel's Wedding knows that ABBA wins hands down ("You're terrible, Muriel"). Besides, in some of ABBA's posed pics - they are standing there all tough - back to back with arms crossed. The Bee Gees do that and just look... like the Bee Gees.

Waterloo Baby!

Christi said...

I guess I'll go with ABBA, b/c there's one song they sing that I like. Of course, I don't know much about either. I'm too young for this sort of stuff!

The Life of Bill said...

Gotta go the ABBA route-those go go boots were MADE for ass kicking!

greekchickie said...

I say Bee Gees. I don't really remember ABBA. I do remember the Bee Gees, though.

M~

ZuphChic said...

Uh...is there a third choice?

But I guess if I had to pick between the two, it would be ABBA...not because I like them but because I can't stand the Bee Gees. There...I said it...

Elvis said...

Gotta go with the ABBA action here. Couple of points worth mentioning : ABBA has true staying alive power, as opposed to the Bee Gees. I think all of the original ABBA folk are indeed still breathing, which the Gees can't boast. Also - simple power of repitition. No one in the correctly fitted underwear would attempt to karaoke a Bee Gees song, whereas you can't stop the juiced up chicks from belting out Dancin Queen.
Bottom line : we will all be Bjorn again...

carlotta fun said...

OH God, the Bee Gees are gonna lose to ABBA! What in the name of Disco and spandex hotpants is THAT about? Bee Gees all the way. They only wrote one of the best soundtracks ever. Besides they could poison ABBA with all that Aqua Net they use and then smother them in chest hair for good measure. ABBA could never fight all that chest hair.

gina said...

ABBA!!!! although i like both. dont hate me. lol

Marie said...

I have to go with ABBA. I listened to their 8-track cassette more than the Bee Gees' :)

Chief Slacker said...

Come on people!!! Bee Gees would destroy ABBA. Firs tthey would stun them with the High Frequesncy sonic attack, then they would send their throngs of swooning ladies to trample ABBA. Plus, Benny looks way to much like david spade in a lot of his pictures, so you jsut KNOW he'd get his ass kicked.
