What's Better: Round 1: Match 8 (Learning to Crawl v Walking Tall)

Well, for me this is a no-brainer, but I'm only batting about .500 in this tournament, so who knows the eclectic tastes of the surfer's by.

On one hand we've got (is it fair to call this) the breakout album of Chrissie Hynde & Co, featuring such memorable ditties as "Watching the Clothes Go Round" and "Middle of the Road."

On the other hand we have the original Buford Pusser biopic anchored by the peformance of Joe Don Baker in the role many think he was born to play.

So, to close out the first round, I ask, "What's Better?"
Learning to Crawl or Walking Tall?

Joe Don Baker's performance as Buford Pusser holds a special place in my heart, so I'm going to have to say Walking Tall.

Though I am not familiar with either of these what are sure to be fine works, based on the title alone, I have to go with Learning to Crawl in honor of my often crawling year old son.

For the record, my vote goes to Chrissie & Company, "Well I got a smile for everyone I meet/
As long as you dont try dragging my bay/Or dropping the bomb on my street"

I've listened to a lot of Rush Limbaugh in my more conservative youth, so I'm voitng for The Pretenders.
