HOUSE GUESTS & BATTLE OF THE BANDS

I have 'House Guests' and we are having a good time going to the beach, exploring and just plain staying up late and visiting. So...

In order to keep up with a Wednesday post, I thought let's do something different; a Battle of the Bands. Take a few minutes break and listen to the same tune by two different artists, then leave me a comment with your vote and to which one you like better.

On Friday, I'll give you my pick.

First up:



Next~



OK, you tell me. Is it Nina or Matt. I'll be back on Frieday and give you my fav.

Just so you know this post is two years old and for some reason it won't let me update the videos. I believe they are still available at Youtube. If you are really curious you can go there; the song is 'SUMERTIME'. The artists; NINA SIMONE and MUSE.

THANKS FOR CHECKING BACK TO SEE WHERE BOTB STARTED ;-)

  1. Enjoy your guests!
    Very different versions. I do like the rock version of course, but something about the way Nina sings it fits the song so well.

  2. Nina Simone gets my vote with the bluesy mood. I also like it by Michael Bublé, a Canadian singer.

    Good Idea.

  4. Hey, I really like your 'Battle Of The Bands' concept! Maybe you should run with that idea, making it a regular feature on your blog.

    In 'BOTB #1', I'm voting for the more masculine of those two female singers. Yeah, I'm voting for Nina.

  7. You can really hear the passion in Nina's voice. Not that Matt lacks passion, but Nina's really singing that song straight from the soul.

    My vote is also for Nina. Great blog concept. I'm looking forward to the next one!

  8. NWB ~
    Incidentally... if you decide NOT to make this 'BOTB' concept a regular feature on your blog, I am DEFINITELY going to steal the idea and make it a semi-regular feature on MY blog. Just sayin'.

    [By the way, I sincerely hope this 'BOTB' installment is a "one and done" thang, 'cause I SERIOUSLY want to make it my own. I already have a dramatically different Bossa Nova 'BOTB' song in mind for my first blog bit. I'm-a runnin' with this idea if-n you don't, Sistah! Still just sayin'.]

  10. I've always liked Nina Simone's style so I would have to vote for her.

  11. I hope you'll keep going with this battle. Great idea.

    #1 has a much more authentic sound. For that reason, I think it's better.

    #2 has a much more modern sound. For that reason, I'd prefer listening to it. (If that makes sense. It feels more soothing to me.)

    Cheers, Farawayeyes. Enjoy your house guests.

  12. Oh yeah! I love this idea.

    Nina all the way; even though I am a big fan of Muse.
