Hey gang, remember when I told you that my first ever BATTLE OF THE BANDS was posted because I had house guests and I only put up the two songs because I had no time and didn’t want my blog too go al ‘whumpy’ for too long…well, I have the same house guest again, yeah, two years later, and I have been busy, busy, busy, running around and having a good time, so…here is the blog going all ‘whumpy’ and neglected AGAIN. Sorry About that.
Anyway…the results are in for BOTB and the winner is…BEFORE I tell you who won, I’ve got to say, I’m a little disappointed, because I love the version by Astrud and she really took a beating in this BATTLE. It does seem that most of you voted against the organ in her version and not really her voice. I loved what Cherdo said about her; ‘Love her voice. It’s almost fragile sounding.’ Yeah, that describes it perfectly; ‘fragile sounding’. I also love the images her version conjured up for some of you. Go back read what Mr. Sheboygan Six had to say. YEOWEE! That comment transported me back in time to a day when ‘my daddy was driving my Uncle Matt’s Caddy around with a big ole stogie stuck in his maw’. Anyway…I doubt youse guys wanna hear ‘bout that!
Here’s the results, plain in simple (and to my great disappointment).
Sergio & Wanda 14 votes
Astrud 7 votes including mine
This BATTLE was my first big bummer!
BUT today I want to take the time to wish TSMOTP a great big ole wet sloppy H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y! You know you are special!
Also, today brings a sad memory for me. Michael Patrick Gordon…you will never be forgotten!
