Prince vs. Michael Jackson

 In this new series of articles, rice or chips, I shall be comparing two popular entertainers to determine who is the best.

1st up, Wacko Jacko vs. the artist formerly known as squiggly wiggly thing.

1. Music

Michael Jackson has penned and sang some of pop’s greatest ditties including, Beat It, Thriller, Bad, Feed the Worms World, not to mention some great tunes with the Jackson Five.

Prince hasn’t been a shirker in this department. When Doves Cry, Purple Rain, I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man, Sign O’ The Times, Alphabet Street, Batdance.

I’m calling this a draw. One point apiece.

2. Singing

Prince has a distinctive voice, ranging from pleasing bass, to preposterous falsetto, but Michael….Oh Lord, Michael had the voice of an angel, even as a nipper. If you listen to, Can You Feel It, when Michael’s vocal kicks in, it’s like a bolt of lightning.

This one goes to Michael.

3. Dancing

Another tough one. Michael popularised the moonwalk and that stupid zombie Thriller thing, but Prince had his moves too.

Check this out…..

Another draw. One point apiece. Jackson leads by a nose….well, half a nose.

4. Appearance

One point for Prince.

5. Musicianship

Prince was rated number 33 on Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Guitarists.

See why HERE.

One point for Prince.

6. Strange Behaviour

Prince is an odd fellow. From punch ups with Sinead O ‘Connor, to changing his name to a heiroglyphic and doing interviews with a mask over his head, there is never a dull moment.

But Michael did not earn the nickname Wacko Jacko for nowt. He spent all his money on roller coasters and chimp food. He had his face surgically replaced with an omelette and slept in an oxygen tent. Michael was a baby-dangling, monkey-loving, artificial inseminating loony-toon.

And he never did find that other glove.

No contest. One point for Michael. ……Four points apiece.

Tiebreaker.

Prince romance Michael romanceVictory for Prince, but it was a hard-won battle.

    • The smart money’s on Adele, but Taylor’s scrappy. She won’t take it lying down (Miley would).

      Your blog is great. do you fancy doing a guest post or something I can reblog? Something with a supernatural theme; werewolves, ghosts, alien abduction, that sort of thing?

      Keep bustin’

        Thank you! Yes I could probably come up with something. What sort of thing do you have in mind exactly? There’s a good chance I or my colleague/brother Todd Fisk have already crafted something including at least one of these themes.

        Thank you! We were very pleased with all the attention Todd’s insomnia posting received. We’ve been brainstorming ideas for the supernatural. I’ll let you know once something materializes.
