Welcome back to #BOTB!
Time to announce the results of the  Dec. 15th showdown.

Battle of the Bands #BOTB results, HAPPY XMAS (WAR IS OVER)

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.

♫ A modern Christmas classic ♫

That’s three blowout battles in a row, now. Oh well, better luck next year!

Maroon 5 was never a favourite and I find Adam Levine’s “girly” vocals thin and yes, nasal, as a couple of people suggested. Justin Hayward, on the other hand, has a beautiful voice, so The Moody Blues get my vote as well. Sorry, Adam. Here’s the breakdown:

MAROON 5
Janie, Pat
Total: 2
~~~~~~~~
THE MOODY BLUES
Arlee, Birgit, C.W. Martin, Cathy, Debbie, Mary,
Mary Lou, Michele, Mike, Myke, Robin, Stephen
Total: 12

Apologies to everyone who experienced technical difficulties while trying to comment.
Between that and the holidays, the turnout for this battle was a bit skimpy.

 The winner is:
THE MOODY BLUES
by 10 votes!

Here’s another song from the album “December”

Don’t forget to check back with the others for their BOTB results:

Angels Bark / Cherdo On The Flipside / Curious as a Cathy / J.A. Scott / Jingle Jangle Jungle / Mike’s Ramblings / Sound of One Hand Typing / HOST: StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands / Tossing It Out Your Daily Dose

One more post, then I’m taking a blogging break into the New Year and will likely miss the next BOTB. Be sure to see what the others are up to on Jan. 1st. Our host, Stephen will have an interesting matchup!

My holiday wishes, especially for you!

  1. DEBBIE ~
    You had a Battle like I did this time. My loser also acquired only 2 votes. Oh well, at least we didn’t have shutouts! :o)

    I have a Battle planned for February that is going to be just as big a blowout as this one was. The loser will get only one or two votes, I’m sure. But at the same time, just the concept of it is going to make it my very favorite BOTB installment of all time. So sometimes it’s not really the outcome that matters, but how the BOTBer feels about the Battle he/she put together — the idea behind it, or the varied styles, etc.

    You have a wonderful and safe holiday season and we’ll catch up again in 2017. (1+7 = 8, and 8 is God’s number, so I feel good about this upcoming year. We shall see…)

  2. Yay, I’m on the winning team! 🙂 Can you believe Christmas is literally just around the corner?! I appreciated another taste of The Moody Blues mewsic, “A Winter’s Tale” is really nice. I like it better than their War is Over cover. I’ll have my results up tomorrow. Have a good evening and thanks for visiting. A Merry Christmas to you, too! 😘

  3. I loved hearing your voice on your holiday message! I also liked hearing Merry Christmas in all the different languages. Very nice!

    I’m not surprised by your battle outcome because Happy Xmas (War is Over) is such a superior holiday classic. I’m glad it won. I can listen to that song over and over.

    Merry Christmas Debbie! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Enjoy your blogging break! Talk to you in the New Year. <3

  4. Congrats to the Moody Blues! I really enjoy their music. I know you’re taking a break for the next battle, but I do hope you’ll stop by for a quick peek on Jan 2 for my battle.
