And so the debate goes on…
A short while ago I asked the Internet a question. I don’t mean I Googled “How Many types of potato are there?” although I did do that, but it’s not relevant right now. I didn’t Ask Jeeves where I can find a plumber – no.
I did so much more than that.
I literally asked the Internet a question!
Not a trivial, wishy-washy question either, but a full on life changing, opinion forming conundrum.
It started with my post the other day about hiring a band for my birthday. In my head it re opened an age old debate that I have been unable to resolve for years.
Who is sexiest 1970’s / 80’s songstress – Kate Bush or Debbie Harry?
I fancied both of these women with a passion when I was a kid, and never could decide. Debbie jumps out immediately of course, due to her straight forward beauty being mixed with good old fashioned dirtiness. Blondie were a fantastic group, their music will be remembered and played for ever. How could any man my age NOT have had a crush on Debbie Harry? (Unless they had one on Fergal Sharkey of course)
As Glen over at Lights 2 Flag recently pointed out “Kate Bush was madder than a bag of frogs” so a lot of people have never really understood my crush on Kate. But for me that madness was part of it. She was (probably still is) a stunningly beautiful woman, and how could anyone in the world not have been excited by her Babooshka costume? (Even the Fergal fans like sequins)
Not knowing what Kate was going to do next, added to the fun. Let’s face it, she was a very sexy, very talented nut case.
I asked this question on an online forum, and have been totally underwhelmed by the lack of response. I asked the entire world, and have so far had three responses – all in support of Debbie. Surely there has to be someone else out there who favours a bit of Kate?
If this is not the case, if I get even more votes for Debbie, then fair enough – I suppose I will have to take that as my choice. I suppose it is a good thing, at least I will be prepared in the unlikely scenario that the two ladies corner me in a bar and demand to know which one I want first. Without conducting this survey I might dither, and whilst I’m trying to choose they will wander off, having lost interest and take George Clooney home instead.
So for the last time I’m asking again – Kate or Debbie ?
