This is, by far, the best poll yet.

God, I'm so torn.

I mean, look at Bono's lyrics!
Ahhahhhhahhh
Eh eh
Ohh ohh ohh ohhh ohhhhh
Ohh ohh ohh ohhh ohhhhh

That is genius, right there.

BOMB!

Bomb has the lyrics "Uno, dos, tres, catorce!!!" so it wins by far.

The really frightening thing is from the lyrics you chose from each album, it is pretty much a toss up....

hay guyZ, wut iz goin on in diz topiX??/?

Topic=So hard to choose!

I really love raffis early work. but after The Singable Songs Collection, he really started to get a little too experimental. Raffi's Box of Sunshine was a letdown. Hopefully he can make a comeback. BananaPhone on the other hand is an instant classic. The Joshua Tree of Raffi's career, so it gets my vote

I hope you're not serious but making this up!

What's Raffi's Sgt. Peppers? His Achtung Baby... if you will?

I think Radio Raffi was somewhat his Zooropa. He never really came back after that. Before that album it looked like he was heading a competely different way though with Everything Grows. It's kind of like his Pop, with one song even being a very close match to a U2 song. "Mary Wore Her Red Dress" I think he showed his musical range from going from "Shake a Toe" to "Bathtime" I mean when I first popped in the CD i was like omg I love Raffi's new musical style!

Yeah!

The only thing that might make the lyrics noted above better is perhaps they could use an "oh" and a couple of "baby's." That would just flesh it out just a touch.

No kidding - Raffi's "Baby Beluga" and "Five Little Ducks" hold a very special place in my heart. Don't ever ask me to choose between "Baby Beluga" and my favorite U2 song. I think Raffi might take it. (And God help me, he's Canadian.)

Hard choice.

But I think I'm going to have to go with Bananaphone because...

I want a bananaphone much more than want to learn how to dismantle an atomic bomb.
Raffi brilliant musician

Are you kidding me? You can't compete with lyrics like "Freedom has a scent like the top of a newborn baby's head." You just can't.

Though, we all know Bono's far past his lyrical prime. Honestly. I just don't see any breathtaking lyrics like "baby, baby, baby...light my way" in the near future. Nor anything like this mastery of "Hey hey sha la la, Hey hey sha la la."

It's kind of sad really.

But, despite all this, Bananaphone is a lyrical masterwork, and it must be given its proper respect.

To be truly honest with you all (since I'm sure that's what you all want of me), I haven't even heard Raffi's album. I am, however, quite familiar with the song Bananaphone, and I must say that is one masterful piece of work. I even drew my own banana phone (that is, a phone on the wall with a banana attached to the cord, instead of the receiver) for art class once (I also made a post-it note on the wall that said "WATCH MORE TV". Basically the two best things ever.) So, I mean, HTDAAB might be my 5th favourite U2 album, but I think the song Bananaphone alone is better than the entire album.

Just don't ask me to choose between Bananaphone and Pop. Oh, you wouldn't do that to me, would you?! Boom cha or ring ring ring?! How would I ever decide? Don't ask this of me!!!
