Singles World Cup – First Round – Fifth Tie

It’s

‘Name of the Game’ by ABBA

 

Very good, catchy, good beat, makes you want to dance, all time good song….Mia (age 11) 9 out of 10

Very good, good beat, I like the chorus….Tess (age 10) 9 outof 10

VERSUS

‘Fool’s Gold’ by Stone Roses

I have no idea how much my esteem for this song is just residual adolescent affection from 18 years ago, and how much is actual critical / aesthetic judgment. When I was 15 this sounded utterly alien to me.

WINNER: Stone Roses
