Battle of the Bands Tournament: Preliminary Play-in Match Two – Cinderella VS White Lion

The Match
White Lion:
Pride (1987)
Big Game (1989)
Their best shot: “Cry Freedom”
Challenger
Cinderella:
Night Songs (1986)
Their best shot: “Nobody’s Fool”

Analysis: There are really only 4 songs I really love by Cinderella, one of them being a song (“Don’t Know What You Got”) I used to hate on their second, unranked album. Off the 3 songs on Night Songs, they could win this matchup because of those songs alone (which include “Somebody Save Me” and “Night Songs”), but all things being equal, White Lion simply has about double that amount of songs, the best of which may or may not help them in the next round. So, to be fair, but with a little regret:

The Winner: White Lion

Obvious pun: I guess there was no cinderella to come out of this round.
