Showdown: Round 1, Fight 3

Brown Sugar vs. King of Carrot Flowers, Pt. 1


Listening to Brown Sugar
by The Rolling Stones, 1971

Sample lyrics:
“ Brown sugar, how come you taste so good?
Brown sugar, just like a black girl should. ”

Sarah: Ooh, this is a weird match-up.

Rebecca: Did he say slave girl?

Galen: It's about a slave girl, yeah.

Sarah: I've got lyrics. Here.

Rebecca: This makes me feel sick.

Galen: Yeah, it's actually very, uh…

Rebecca: Appalling! I never really paid attention to the words before! There's no backing down from it, either. Is this supposed to be a joke?

Galen: No, I think they took it seriously.

Rebecca: Whipping?!

Galen: I think that might have been more metaphorical. Whipping them into a frenzy with his cock. You know.

Rebecca: Did they have to say he was old and scarred? This is horrible!

King of Carrot Flowers, Pt. 1

Listening to King of Carrot Flowers, Pt. 1
by Neutral Milk Hotel, 1998

Sample lyrics:
“ And from above you how I sank into your soul
Into that secret place where no one dares to go ”

Galen: What's it up against?

Sarah: Neutral Milk Hotel. This is an unfair fight, with these judges. I should have balanced the panel with some classic rockers.

Rebecca: We should conference call your dad!… So what vagina content does this song have besides learning what our bodies are for?

Sarah: I've got lyrics. He sinks into your secret place.

Rebecca: This has a more positive feeling.

Sarah: It's kind of tied for me, because I hate coming of age stories so much, and this song is so full with coming of age.

Galen: “It's the first time we did it!”

Sarah: Yeah, “and then we were grown ups!” Come on.

Rebecca: But everybody comes of age.

Galen: Not me! I was born old.

Sarah: It's just the stories about it that I don't like. These are totally different songs, though. This one's tender, and The Rolling Stones song is just lusty.

Rebecca: And creepy!

Sarah: So you're going with Neutral Milk Hotel?

Rebecca: I have to. Maybe I'm being prudish, but I never liked Brown Sugar anyway.

Sarah: Hey, if you hate Brown Sugar, don't go against your gut.

Galen: I think I might go with Brown Sugar, because it's balls-out.

Sarah: Hmm, tie-breaker. This is tough, because I do like the song and the context in the Neutral Milk Hotel song a lot better, but Brown Sugar compells me because there aren't many songs about women tasting good. Those three [Neutral Milk Hotel] lines are just so cute, though… I'm going to have to go with Neutral Milk Hotel.

Winner: King of Carrot Flowers, Pt. 1
