    I really enjoyed both of these songs. U R THE BEST THING wins it for me it's a sexy dance song.

    Although this one was a hard choice. :D

    I used to enjoy THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER until it was used for politics in the UK, then it became one of those over-played songs and now I prefer not to hear it.

    So the winner for me is U R THE BEST THING.

    Interesting...the same association, and yet with different results.

    To me, TCOGB is just a lovely tune from the MTV dance chart in 1993 and that's why I bought the CDsingle.:lol:
    Also, I prefer the supporting vocals on THINGS, so I guess that solves my D:Ream dilemma.

    Indeed, TBG! Our BEST THING vs. BETTER THINGS dilemma is not solved at all!
    But that's OK, it happens sometimes.

    Ellen Foley - WHAT'S A MATTER BABY vs. WE BELONG TO THE NIGHT





    Good luck!

    Wow! she has a strong voice and Ellen Foley's vocals really remind me of someone and I can't think who?


    My vote goes for - WE BELONG TO THE NIGHT

    We Belong To The Night mainly because I love that melodramatic moment in the video at about 48 seconds in when she throws off her coat.

    I like them both equally, and then the original EF song would beat the cover version by default.
    But it's a real kick-ass cover (and at that time I wasn't even aware of Timi Yuro's version) , so I vote for BABY.

    But it's a landslide victory for WE BELONG TO THE NIGHT.[​IMG]

    Yes! thats who she reminded me of and I didn't realise this was Ellen Foley :fp:





    I kind of like both of these songs.

    I will vote for - IF I SAID YOU HAD A BEAUTIFUL BODY WOULD YOU HOLD IT AGAINST ME - because it brings back memories of hearing this song on a jukebox from somewhere I used to go.

    I agree, it's a big dilemma. I think LOVE sounds a little catchier, but BODY sounds more interesting, structure-wise.
    But the "flowing love" in BODY could not have existed without "letting her love flow" first, so I'm going to vote for LET YOUR LOVE FLOW because it allowed BODY to become the other great signature song.

    Two great songs so really hard to pick a winner but I'm going to choose If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me just because I find the lyrics to be more interesting such as "If I was dying of thirst, would your flowing love come quench me?" I notice they used the idea of flowing love/love flow in both songs.

    I am thrilled to let you know that we have a favourite Bellamy Brothers signature song, namely LET YOUR LOVE FLOW
    But I also agree with the other choices.

    Well done, soapchat!

    I love the disco feel of this one and this could have been my signature song before I met Mr. TBG. :floor::floor::floor::floor:

    This song reminds me of Mr. TBG and I.

    I love both of these songs so it's a very hard decision. :fp:

    I am going to vote for So Many Men, So Little Time....because I like the beat to this one more than the other one.

    Good Choice @Willie Oleson I had never heard either of these songs before. [​IMG]

    Not a fan of either song (sorry) but I think Close To Perfection is the better of the two.
