KNOCKIN’ ON HEAVEN’S DOOR – #BOTB RESULTS

20 CommentsBattle of the Bands (BOTB), Blogfests, Music

Welcome back!  It’s time to announce results for the July 15th 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 Chicago singer/songwriter/musician, Warren Zevon
against British singer/songwriter, Rachel Rabin, professionally known as Raign.

Talk about a decisive victory! Raign didn’t stand a chance. A few of you did like her and so do I, but not enough to surpass Warren. His rendition has always touched me deeply, so I joined with the majority. That said, Raign’s dramatic approach and deep voice does appeal to me.

AND THE WINNER IS:

WARREN ZEVON

By  three-quarters of the vote.
An even bigger victory than last time!

  1. Everyone cheer, the crowd goes wild! ZEVON! ZEVON! ZEVON!

    I have to admit…I love Warren Zevon (“Keep Me In Your Heart” is one of my all time favorite songs).

  2. Glad he won and am not surprised nor am I of the amount because I had read some of the comments. Great BOTB because it opens my mind and ears to different styles

    1. Warren was my choice as well. 🙂 I am surprised that Raign didn’t get more votes because I actually like her style and voice. Obviously not a popular view! Thanks for coming by, Birgit.

    1. I was surprised too, Clowie. Although Warren was my choice, Raign’s version did appeal to me as well and I thought more people would like her. You never know! 🙂

  3. DEBBIE ~
    It seems there were a number of blowouts in this round of BOTB. Oh well, so it goes sometimes. Hopefully we’ll have some closer outcomes next time. See ya then!

  4. Sorry I missed the contest, but that was a really nice version – I hadn’t heard it before. I have fond memories of rocking out to the Guns ‘n’ Roses version at my primary school disco. 🙂

    1. Hi Nick; Nice to see you! 🙂 The GnR version was the most popular, I think. What makes Warren’s so poignant is the fact that he was literally dying when he recorded it. He never lost his sense of humour. (Can you tell I’m a fan? 🙂 )
      If you’re interested, these Battle of the Bands posts run every 1st and 15th of the month. Thanks for coming by.

  5. Yay for Warren! I did like Raign; like I said before, hadn’t ever heard of her, so I’m glad I found new music to expand my horizons. But Warren deserved this win 🙂 Great battle, Debbie! (Off to post my results now 😉 )

    1. I’m not surprised Warren won, but Raign has that deep contralto that I also find attractive. Glad you enjoyed the battle, Guilie. My next one will feature Ennio. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Hi, Debbie the Doglady! Thanks for reporting in . I voted for Z-Man and the outcome does not surprise me. However, as the pie chart clearly shows, it was far from being a shutout. I enjoyed hearing the Raign rendition and learning more about both competing artists. I look forward to you next band battle, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Well, I had a hunch Warren would win, but I didn’t think it would be by so much! Raign does appeal to me because I love dramatic music and deep voices. Glad to have found her!
