Purple Haze round my brain...not one of my favorite Hendrix songs but I definitely like it more than Hazy Shade..

Re: Purple Haze or A Hazy Shade of Winter

Jimi's ''Purple Haze'' but not by much...

''A Hazy Shade of Winter'' is a fantastic tune...

I was hoping this would be closer.

Re: Purple Haze or A Hazy Shade of Winter

These are both really great songs...for very different reasons.

Of the two, I'm sure I've gone back a lot more often to hear "Purple Haze", so it has earned my vote.

Both are great, but 'Purple Haze' has the edge

I agree! It's my favourite Simon & Garfunkel track.



And it got my vote in this one.

Re: Purple Haze or A Hazy Shade of Winter

Voted Hendrix but I honestly like both songs but there was no other option....I wish on these polls an other or both option existed.
Comparing Hendrix to Simon and Garfunkel is like comparing Zeppelin to James Taylor.
For me they are so unlike that the question is almost absurd.
