Battle of Same Song Title: Madonna vs Green Day / NSYNC vs Avril Lavigne

The battles are quite odd as a pop diva battles with a rock band. The second battle was between a pop/rock female star against a pop boyband. Check the battles below:

Madonna vs Green Day
“Holiday”

During the early part of her career, Madonna released her “Holiday” song which became her first ever big hit internationally. In the US, it was their first top 20 hit peaking at 16th. In the UK, it peaked at high second place. The song helped her album greatly.

 

Green Day made their own “Holiday” song which was released in 2005. The punk rock song though failed to enter the top ten in countries, though it reached the top twenty in some countries which included America and Unite Kingdom.

Verdict:
Madonna- Holiday
Melody and Lyrics- 3.25 / Success- 3.25= 6.5

Green Day- Holiday
Melody and Lyrics- 2.75 / Success- 3.0= 5.75

Winner: The Queen of Pop trampled the rock band as Madonna scored higher against Green Day in this “Holiday” song battle.

NSYNC vs Avril Lavigne
“Girlfriend”

Released as the last official single from NSYNC’s last full length album, “Girlfriend” had its remixed version with successful rapper Nelly. Both versions were good, though the remixed helped the song’s success. It went to top ten almost all of the countries it entered. The song talks about telling the girl to be his girlfriend who was in a relationship with an unloving boyfriend.

Avril Lavigne reached a new peak of her career through her own “Girlfriend” song. The pop rock song went to number in majority of the countries it entered and was her most successful single. The song talks about this girl who wants to be the guy’s girlfriend. In its remix version, it featured Lil Mama

Verdict:
NSYNC- Girlfriend (ft. Nelly for the remix)
Melody and Lyrics- 3.75 / Success- 3.75= 7.5

Avril Lavigne- Girlfriend (ft. Lil Mama for the remix)
Melody and Lyrics- 3.75 / Success-4.25= 8.0

Winner: Both were big hit songs but Avril Lavigne defeated NSYNC in this “Girlfriend” battle.

Battle of Same Song Title: Mariah Carey vs Enrique Iglesias / Bryan Adams vs Whitney Houston

Two divas are battling with two male singers, in the two battles. Let’s check who wins below:

Mariah Carey vs Enrique Iglesias
“Hero”

This “Hero” song of Mariah Carey has been one of her most popular and one of her numerous number one singles in the US. It was also a hit in several countries. It is an inspirational song which inspired many and often sang in singing competitions. It was covered by some artists too.

Enrique Iglesias had his “Hero” song too. However, it is not about being heroic to some people, rather, about being a hero for the girl you love” It was a big hit after reaching number one worldwide and top 5 in some countries including a number 3 peak in the US.

Mariah Carey- Hero
Melody and Lyrics- 4.25 / Success- 3.5= 7.75

Bryan Adams vs Whitney Houston
“Run To You”

Bryan Adam’s “Run to You” is one of his earliest hits. The rock song went to the top 10 in the US while it failed the top ten in UK as it settled at number 11. The song though is about infidelity, like choosing the other woman over the real partner. Not a good message for me.

Whitney Houston had this track from her “The Bodyguard” soundtrack album as a released single. It had charted moderately in the charts but it was a very recognized Whitney Houston song. It is one of the most sang Whitney Houston songs in singing competitions. It is a love song in R&B and pop mood.

Verdict:
Bryan Adams- Run to You
Melody and Lyrics- 1.75 / Success- 3.0= 4.75

Whitney Houston- Run to You
Melody and Lyrics- 2.5 / Success- 3.0= 5.5

Winner: Whitney Houston is taking the champ for “Run to You” battle against Canadian singer Bryan Adams.
