Whoa-boy. I forgot about the site for awhile, due to college happening. I didn't realize that the thread died when I left. Holy...I'm super sorry about that. Wow.

As for my vote, I cast it for Elton John. While both artists have a certain strangeness about them, Elton seems to be the more likable of the two, with a more openness about him. Plus, his live shows are amazing, both audibly and visually; for me, just listing to the live album Here and There gives a sense of how amazing he was and is. Therefore, without a doubt, my vote goes for Elton John.

Oh! Hey waluigi! ;)

Vote:
I will cast my vote for Elton John as well! Both make awesome music, but Elton always gets my attention with evey song he sings, whereas David sometimes looses my interest after a while... Elton also has a distinct personality, as where David Bowie (sadly) decided to change his over time. Both started out as eccentric singers, but Elton stayed true to his performance, which I will always admire. =)

I'm voting for David Bowie.

While i do say that both certainly have a huge amount of influence on rock music and both are outstanding musicians and people, David Bowie's music i like a bit better than Elton Johns, and i also think that David Bowie had maybe a liiiiiittle more influence then Elton.

Both are hugely influential people and talented musicians, I personally am not a fan of Elton John but not knocking him. David Bowie has the best style and prefer his music to Eltons.

Elton John, because to me he is the most reassuring man in music.

I've never listened to Elton John music so much (even if he's making great one of course), so my vote goes to Bowie. His music is special, but so good (I remember to have listened to Life on Mars so many times, one of my fav songs).

Another round, another winner!

---------------------------
Elton John - 11
David Bowie - 7
---------------------------

I apologize greatly for my absence during the past couple weeks... I haven't had any time to come online and I may not get much more for some time, but I've asked someone to cover for me in my absence and, knowing their dedication to this community, I don't doubt that they'll find the time! =)

I haven't a heard a single song by Elton John.

That's why I gave you links to a few of them. =)

@Charlie506 - your reasoning is not sufficient and therefore I can't count your vote... be sure to elaborate more next time!

@R2D21999 - I counted your vote, but the reasoning is a little on the thin side!

And now, without further ado, I bring you the next battle...

Led Zeppelin
