    I wish it had been Paula Abdul vs. Pia Zadora (they're sort of in the same league)

    For some reason, Pia Zadora always makes me think of Bonnie Langford. I think it's the precocious child star background they share.

    Paula Abdul vs. Pia Zadora

    PA v PZ.jpg

    As always, if you have ten favourites from both sides, then please post the two lists and I will include them in the final tally


    Paula Abdul

    pl.jpg


    Paula Julie Abdul (born June 19, 1962) is an American dancer, choreographer, singer, actress, and television personality. She began her career as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers at the age of 18 and later became the head choreographer for the Laker Girls, where she was discovered by The Jacksons


    Her debut studio album Forever Your Girl (1988) became one of the most successful debut albums at that time, selling 7 million copies in the United States and setting a record for the most number-one singles from a debut album


    Her six number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 tie her with Diana Ross for seventh among the female solo performers who have topped the chart


    Pia Zadora

    PZZ.jpg

    Pia Zadora (born Pia Alfreda Schipani, May 4, 1953) is an American actress and singer. After working as a child actress on Broadway, in regional theater, and in the film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964), she came to national attention in 1981, when following her starring role in the highly criticized Butterfly, she won a Golden Globe Award as New Star of the Year, while simultaneously winning the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress and the "Worst New Star" for the same performance.

    When in the 1980s Zadora's film career failed to achieve critical success, she switched her focus to music. As a singer Zadora has released several albums featuring popular standards, often backed by a symphonic orchestra

    Straight Up was a cracker so I understand how that became a smash hit. But the other songs sound like bottom-of-the-barrel pop music to me.
    Now I'm curious to know what the other debut albums of that year were.

    Even with two artists I still couldn't stretch it to 10 songs:oops:...maybe we should have included LaToya Jackson too:lol:

    1. When The Rain Begins To Fall - Pia Zadora
    2. My Love Is For Real - Paula Abdul
    3. Let's Dance Tonight - Pia Zadora
    4. Straight Up - Paula Abdul
    5. Rock It Out - Pia Zadora
    6. Little Bit Of Heaven - Pia Zadora
    7. I Know A Good Thing When I Feel It - Pia Zadora

    For me, far better than Paula during this same time period was Jody Watley. But no one really seems to remember her nowadays.

    Tavares vs Detroit Spinners

    TT vs DS.jpg

    As always, if you have ten favourites from both sides,
    then please post the two lists and I will include them in the final tally

    Tavares

    [​IMG]

    Tavares (also known as The Tavares Brothers) is an American R&B, funk, and soul music group, composed of five Cape Verdean-American brothers. Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, they would later move to New Bedford, Massachusetts. They were inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame in 2014.
    The brothers, whose parents were of Cape Verdean descent, started performing in 1959 as Chubby and the Turnpikes when the youngest brother was 9.



    Detroit Spinners

    [​IMG]

    The Spinners are an American rhythm and blues vocal group that formed in Detroit, Michigan, in 1954. They enjoyed a string of hit singles and albums during the 1960s and 1970s. The group continues to tour, with Henry Fambrough as the only original member.

    The group is also listed as the Detroit Spinners and the Motown Spinners, due to their 1960s recordings with the Motown label. These other names were used in the UK to avoid confusion with a British folk group also called The Spinners. On June 30, 1976, they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2015, they were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
