Battle for Central Illinois Supremacy: Cheap Trick vs. REO Speedwagon

Posted By on Tue, Aug 4, 2009 at 9:37 AM

Mi amigo Matt runs the blog Addicted to Vinyl, and every Tuesday he unleashes a "cage match" battle between two songs/bands. This week's fight has particular relevance to St. Louis (and not just because I gave him the idea): Cheap Trick's "The Flame" vs. REO Speedwagon's "Keep On Loving You." These are near and dear to the hearts of KSHE-listenin' St. Louisians -- in fact, the station's already earned a shout-out in the comments -- and so I encourage everyone to go weigh in on who earns power-ballad supremacy this week. Be sure to watch the beginning of this video. You owe it to yourself. Trust me.
