WHITE ROOM | #BOTB RESULTS

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

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

Battle of the Bands BOTB, WHITE ROOME

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.

♫ Another international blues/rock contest. ♫

With two strong contenders, I was expecting another close battle, but this time, there’s a clear winner. It was going back and forth for the first few days, then Laith started picking up steam. Despite one late vote for Slow Feet, they couldn’t quite catch up. Here’s how it turned out:

SLOW FEET:
Arlee, Cathy, Chris, J. Gi, Larry, Mike, Myke, Pat, Stephen

TOTAL: 9

~~~~~

LAITH AL-SAADI:
Angel Stew, Birgit, C.W. Martin, Cherdo, Chrys, Janie, John, Mary, Michele, Robin, Shady, Yolanda

TOTAL: 12

Either way, my vote won’t make a difference. Several people mentioned it was tough to choose and it was for me as well. Laith’s power vocals and guitar prowess blew me away. Slow Feet’s bluesy arrangement, vocals and musicianship were equally riveting. After listening to each several times, it finally came down to which one triggered the more intense emotional response. Without a doubt, that would be Slow Feet. Their version gave me chills and I’m completely besotted!

Come back here on Sept. 5  (Question of the Month) for more about music and emotions.

and the winner is:
LAITH AL-SAADI
By 2 votes

Here’s the winner in his live performance on The Voice.
The man definitely has talent!

  1. Oh well, I can’t win all the time, but it was an excellent battle. I enjoyed both groups presented. Looking forward to September’s challenge.
    Have a great week, Debbie.

    1. I chose the less popular version as well, but it was a tough decision. 🙂 There’s another international battle coming up on Sept. 1. Thanks for following my BOTB posts and have a good weekend.

  2. Debbie, Laith Al-Saadi is definitely a good rocker pick for this song, but I still like Slowfeet’s version. They made the song more their own and I liked the slower, metal sound and almost tender vocals. Cool battle!

  3. That was a close one! I’m sticking with Slow Feet the group and as for my own feet they’re just slower these days, but faster than my wife’s.

    1. The close result is fitting, I think since both versions were excellent. Slow Feet was my choice as well. 🙂 As for literal slow feet, I can relate.

  4. Hi, Debbie the Doglady!

    In my opinion your expectations were met because a three point spread is a close battle. I am not surprised by this outcome because I think most people are anchored to the original of “White Room” and Laith’s version brought it back. Given your European roots I predicted you would vote for the Italian band. Both versions rock.

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend Debbie!

    1. Hi, Shady; I was secretly hoping for another tie since both versions are stellar. 🙂 The original “White Room” is a favourite of mine as well, but Slow Feet took it to otherworldly places. Yeah; I’m a sucker for an Italian accent. 😉 Thanks for coming by.

  5. You said 2 votes. Am I wrong to say it’s supposed to be 3? Or you didn’t count your own vote in the post, but just mentally did the math, that’s why it’s 2?

    1. I always show how everyone else voted before adding mine. Because I chose Slow Feet, the final differential was two votes. IMO, it should have been a tie. 🙂
