I didn't include 'Celebration' cause I consider the ones from the poll the best, and hopefully for more interesting results.
 
There's no question that most have heard 'Duel..', but not 'Song..', so here I'll post the YouTube samples so you can be able to vote:

Both are fantastic pieces of work.  Can't choose.  Dead heat.  Lenny White was at the top of his game on (studio version) "Pharoah".

Duel Of The Jester And The Tyrant
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Romantic Warrior is one of my favorite fusion albums.

Duel With the Jester and the Tyrant. Romantic Warrior is such a great record

im a big fan of the versions from the 2 CD "Returns" album from 2008 (released 2009). The playing is tight, expressive, and contains extra improvs. I think the Pharaoh Kings is more than double the original length (27 minutes)

This is unfair.... both are great tracks but Duel Of The Jester And The Tyrant is the obvious answer! (at least to me)

^I really don't see or understand why Duel is the "obvious" answer, I actually doubt that all the voters have heard Song to the Pharoah Kings, not saying you didn't listen to it, but I just don't see how it's so obvious.
