ENTER SANDMAN – #BOTB RESULTS

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

Welcome back! It’s time to announce results for the Jan. 15th BOTB post

Battle of the Bands #BOTB, ENTER SANDMAN

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 heavy metal band, Metallica
against pop/jazz/gospel singer, Pat Boone
against bluegrass band, Iron Horse

Firstly, apologies for posting so late. Time just got away from me!

I thought it would be fun to present vastly different genres of a metal song and threw in the original for even more contrast. While searching for covers, I stumbled upon the Iron Horse bluegrass version, prepared to dislike it, as I’m not a big fan of that style. Imagine my surprise when I not only liked it but even considered voting for it. Me – the consummate Metallica fan! Many of you expressed similar sentiments and so, this became a close battle. For the record, I did vote for Metallica in the end, which made it a tie. I just love their music too much! (Sorry, Stephen 😉 )  A last minute vote from Guilie gave them the slimmest of victories. Poor old Pat didn’t fare so well. Honestly, I was wincing throughout his recording. 😛 A few of you liked him though and he did get a couple of votes, much to my surprise. Vive la différence! 😀

AND THE WINNER IS:

METALLICA

By one single vote!

  1. What a great battle and how fun to have it be suspenseful to the very end! I’m glad Metallica won (that was my vote) but Iron Horse was good too. Pat Boone kinda creeped me out so no surprise that he didn’t get too many votes. That was just weird for him to be doing metal…

    Congrats on a great battle Debbie!

  2. I can’t say I have ever been the biggest Metallica fan, though I do like much of their music.
    I don’t always listen to additional videos, but I do from time to time. Once I started watching their live performance, it drew me right in and I had to watch the entire thing. They really put on a good show. Kinda wish I was there to enjoy live as well.

    1. Ah, Jeffrey – you’ve got it, exactly! 🙂 I’m fervently hoping Metallica will come to Toronto because I’ve never seen them live, either. Strange that they don’t come here – this is a real “music mecca”. Hopefully, I will be able to cross that off the bucket list one day!

  3. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    Congratulations on presenting a great battle that turned into a squeaker and wasn’t decided until the last minute. At the time I posted my vote, I fully expected mild mannered pop crooner Pat Boone to sweep the competition. (I’m still having night terrors about Pat tucking me in and singing me to off to never never land – jazz hands and all! 🙂 It’s good to know that Metallica’s metal classic prevailed in the end. Your battle was loads of fun, dear friend Debbie, and I can’t wait for your next one. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Hi, Shady; I thought Pat would have received more votes too, but his version was too odd for most people. 🙂 Iron Horse sure came on strong and Metallica just squeaked in there. Next battle will be more mild-mannered as I’ll be talking about ♫ Love, Sweet Love ♫. Glad you enjoyed the battle! You have a good weekend as well.
