I can't stand Dream Weaver. Never like that song. Video Killed... is a catchy song. More of a guilty pleasure (and only then when watching the video) thus it gets the vote here.

Buggles over Gary Wright any day, although I do like the tritone intro/outro parts of Dream Weaver

How does anybody not love the fuzzy Rhodes sound on Dream Weaver? Buggles buggled the hell out of me.
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

'Video' is a guilty pleasure for many a progger....similar to the Pete Sinfield-written 'Land of Make Believe' by Buck's Fizz for me...so the Buggles edge it - although 'Dream Weaver' is a good, mainstream from the late 70s (Am I right in thinking Gary Wright supported Peter Frampton when he came over to the UK around that time?)

Can anyone say Spooky Tooth.....? I'll give it to Wright for that alone...but both songs are radio friendly fodder imho.

This! Well said!
