ECSTASY OF GOLD – #BOTB RESULTS

28 CommentsBattle of the Bands (BOTB), Link Ups, Music

Welcome back! It’s time to announce results for the Aug. 1st BOTB post

Battle of the Bands BOTB Knockin' on Heaven's Door

BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by Far Away Series and 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.

This one pitted Italian movie soundtrack composer, Ennio Morricone
against American heavy metal band, Metallica.

Ennio came out the gate like gangbusters, and I actually feared a shutout. Some of you clearly do not like Metallica but did say their version was tolerable. Thanks for giving it a chance! Slowly, Metallica started getting some votes, but not enough to catch Ennio. I love Spaghetti Westerns and Ennio Morricone, but I also love Metallica. How to choose? About Metallica’s entry, Guilie said it best: “WHAT A VERSION! It gave me chills.” Yes; exactly! I am compelled to vote for it and am fervently hoping to see Metallica perform it live. This is my one unfulfilled “Concert Bucket List” item!

AND THE WINNER IS:

ENNIO MORRICONE

By ~ two-thirds of the vote.

  1. I would have been surprised if Morricone hadn’t won, but, as I said before, I did enjoy the Metallica version and wouldn’t have been terribly disappointed if they had won. (I know, surprising from the opera, classical and classic rock queen) but what can I say. I’m looking forward to the next battle. Now I’m sorry I didn’t vote in the previous challenges.
    Thanks for presenting these. ☺

  2. Hi, Debbie the Doglady! I was on the losing team in this battle but at least we made a fight of it and went down swinging. I must say that the outcome surprised me because I thought you have plenty of rockers in your circle. It’s funny. I find that the older I get the more I crave the hard stuff. The only reason why I would label Metallica’s version “tolerable” is because it is a bit too tame for my taste and I wish it was more intense, more aggressive, more “transgressive.” A few death growls would have helped. 🙂

    Thank you very much for another entertaining BOTB, dear Debbie. I wish you, your husband and your dogs a safe and happy weekend!

    1. Looks like tradition won out, Shady. 🙂 Funny you should say that about craving the hard stuff as we age. I’ve found the same to be true, although your tastes appear to be a bit more intense than mine. I love many forms of metal music, but the death growls, not so much. Thanks for dropping by and have a good weekend, yourself. Cheers!
