Welcome back to #BOTB!
Time to announce the results of the  Nov. 1st showdown.

Battle of the Bands #BOTB results, AMERICAN WOMAN

BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.

♫ Different takes on a controversial song ♫

Seems like a sparser turnout for this battle, which is a bit disappointing. That said, I haven’t been able to respond to comments in a timely manner. Apologies for the late replies. Trying to catch up now.

For awhile there, it actually looked like Devil’s Train had a chance of winning. Pretty cool for a hard rock/metal band! Stephen said they were BOLD and CONFIDENT (among other things) and Robin surprised herself by choosing them as well because they met the “Go Big or Go Home” criteria. More of you preferred Lenny’s version, however. Here’s how it played out:

LENNY KRAVITZ
Arlee, Birgit, Cathy, Cherdo, Diedre, Jeffrey, Michele, Mike, Pat
Total: 09
~~~~~~~~
DEVIL’S TRAIN
C.W. Martin, John, Mary, Robin, Shady, Stephen
Total: 06

It won’t matter which artist I choose, but for the record, my vote goes to Devil’s Train. I’m a huge Guess Who fan and never cared for Lenny’s version all that much. Devil’s Train, on the other hand, was totally BAD ASS! So, at least it was close. 🙂

 The winner is:
LENNY KRAVITZ
by a mere 2 votes

Here’s  the winner in a live performance:

And, since it was so close, this is for all of us Devil’s Train fans:

  1. Excellent Battle, DEBBIE!

    And incidentally, my voter turnout was down from the norm also. Maybe everyone was just sick and tired of the idea of “voting” on ANYTHING. :o)

  2. Hey Debbie,
    Hope all is well in California. Your battle was a good one with a close outcome. I liked the Devil’s Train song you posted here.
    You know what a huge fan of the Guess Who I am so no one can really compare to them but both contenders in your battle did an excellent job.
    I’m on the road heading to NC and aren’t going to get my battle results up for a few days probably… I’m also missing the QOTM. 🙁
    Talk soon

    1. Sorry to have missed these comments, Michele. 🙁 Time just got away from me in California and I’ve been overwhelmed trying to catch up back home, as well. I hope everything went as well as can be expected for you and your family in NC. Wishing you all the best! ♥

  3. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    Still in California? I hope all is going well.

    I am a little surprised by the outcome but the race was close and at least your ears matched mine this time. I’m thinking the incumbent, the more familiar version, tends to have the advantage, and that might explain why Lenny came out on top. “Mr. Jones” is another badass number by the D-Train and I enjoyed it.

    Thanks for another great battle and take good care of yourself, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Still here, until Wednesday, Shady. I’ve one last thing to do tomorrow, besides packing and, that’s it. I get to experience the U.S. election first hand. Maybe I’ll tune back into Netflix, instead. 🙂 (I did manage to watch all the episodes of Freak Show.) Glad you enjoyed the bonus track here.
