Welcome back to #BOTB!
Time to announce the results of the Jan. 15th showdown.
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.
Blowouts are becoming the norm around here! That’s 4 in a row, now.
Hopefully, the next one won’t be so one-sided.
It’s never a good idea to pit an original against a cover and “Holding On To Yesterday” proves that point. Unfortunately, there was only one other recording found and I even had to buy the mp3 to get it, it was so rare. My compulsion to use this song drove me to it and there are no regrets. Rick Springfield’s version was a pleasant surprise! Great vocals, but I found the arrangement a bit jarring, compared to Ambrosia’s, which has a mournful, ethereal quality. Add to that, the intense memories attached and I have to side with the majority. Sorry, Rick! Here’s the breakdown:
Arlee, Birgit, C.W. Martin, cat, Cathy G., Cathy K., Cherdo, Debbie, John, Mary, Mary Lou, Michele, Robin, Stephen
diedre, Myke, Pat
And the winner is:
by 11 votes!
