'The Season of the Witch' proved to be a very interesting BATTLE indeed. For awhile there the two contestants; Lou Rawls and Dr. John were neck and neck, but near the end the good doctor pulled ahead and Lou just couldn't catch up.
I like Lou Rawls his voice reminds me of that pat of butter slowly melting and sliding down a short stack all gooey and covered in real maple syrup. Dr. John is a little bit more like fingernails on a chalkboard, BUT for this contest (it being the Halloween song and all) and this song, those fingernails on the chalkboard see more appropriate. The instrumentation in the Dr. John version was also more interesting and had a more creepy, Halloweeny ai to it and for those reasons it gets my vote.
The final tally:
Lou Rawls 8 votes
Dr. John 13 votes (including mine)
I'll be back on Monday, October 26th when I participate in Bish's 'Listing Blog Hop. See you then.
There will be another BATTLE on November 1st as we head into the 'real' Holiday season and I hope you'll be along for the ride..
I appreciate all the well wishes with respect to my health. I'm happy to report that I'm on the mend and the walking pneumonia has digressed into a very annoying head cold, but at least I can breathe, kind of.
Until the 26th...Happy Trails!
