121: "Goodbye Earl" vs. "Before He Cheats" (w/Natalie Weiner)
We do love our country music women getting revenge on men, don't we, whether they're destroying beloved cars or actively taking lives! We invite "Don't Rock the Inbox" writer Natalie Weiner to help us answer who does female justice better, The Chicks with "Goodbye Earl" or Carrie Underwood with "Before He Cheats"?

120: "Baby One More Time" vs. "Genie in a Bottle"
Two pop princesses blitzed the charts in 1999, and they would always be compared even though their paths quickly diverged. There's no chance that the iconic "Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears could be upset by Christina Aguilera's "Genie in a Bottle," could there?See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

119: "Rapture" vs. "Genius of Love"
It's the early '80s and shockingly some of the first big rap songs were by white new wave bands. But which is the best of the two big new wave hip-hop (?) hits, "Rapture" by Blondie or "Genius of Love" by Tom Tom Club?See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

117: "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" vs. "My Generation"
The greatest (non-Beatles) British invasion songs of 1965! Is there anything left to say about these towering monoliths of rock? And which is actually better?

116: "Promiscuous" vs. "Hips Don't Lie"
It's 2006 and two of the biggest pop songs of the year are from two couples dancing and maybe even doing more than that (but it's not likely). Which is the best flirty duet of 2006, Nelly Furtado ft. Timbaland's "Promiscuous" or Shakira ft. Wyclef Jean's "Hips Don't Lie"?

115: "My Hero" vs. "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" (with Joe Kwaczala!)
Is there anything we love more here at Song vs. Song than '90s alt-rock? Probably not!

114: "White and Nerdy" vs. "I'm on a Boat"
White people... rapping?? Comedy gold every time, and in the '00s, two different comedy acts reached new heights with this joke, but only one can be the kings of Caucasian comedy rap, so who reigns supreme? The man myth and legend Weird Al Yankovic with "White and Nerdy" or SNL upstarts The Lonely Island with "I'm on a Boat"?
