Singles World Cup – First Round – Twelfth Tie

It’s

‘Unfinished Sympathy’ by Massive Attack

Awoke my interest in dance music in the early 90’s and realised that it wasn’t as narrow a genre as I imagined. The combination of natural sounding piano and strings, along with such emotive vocals has stayed with me ever since.

VERSUS

‘Walk On By’ Dionne Warwick

The perfect combination of words, melody, music, emotion, and performance. I could have picked any of a number of Bacharach and David songs, but this feels like a platonic essence.

WINNER: Massive Attack
