Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

Yardbirds all the way.....it surprises me that Zombies got more votes.
Clapton, Beck , and Page.....need one say more? Plus a string of solid radio hits for multiple years.
The Zombies did have a few radio hits but never influenced music and musicians like the Yardbirds did.

Exclamation Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

Hey! The only thing this great end of the alphabet poll lacks is music:

Yardbirds










Zombies

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

Still surprises me that the Zombies got more votes...they only had 2 hits to be honest and Yardbirds had 4 or 5 plus those great players.....it just goes to show that many people look superficially at music.

Exclamation Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

The Zombies actually had three big hits:

She's Not There (1964) - Billboard #2, Canada #2
Tell Her No (1964) - Billboard #6, Canada #6
Time of the Season (1969) - Billboard #3, Canada #1

The Yardbirds highest charting hit on Billboard was For Your Love which got to #6. Nonetheless I went with the Yardbirds on the strength of their deeper catalogue with tracks such as Heart Full of Soul and Over Under Sideways Down.

Re: The Yardbirds vs. The Zombies

Not to mention Shapes of Things, Happenings Ten years Time Ago, I'm a Man, etc..and Shapes is considered by some to be the first true psychedelic rock song
I actually like Argent better than the Zombies who I always considered to be light weights....though Odessey and Oracle is a good pop pysch record in it's own way.

I definitely agree. Don't get me wrong, The Zombies were a cool band, and they had some great songs. But there's really no comparison between them and the legendary Yardbirds! (They're both '60s British Invasion outfits, so it's not a total apples vs. oranges mismatch.)

Here are my favorite songs by each (and I'm sorry if I didn't dig deep enough for the Zombies)...
