Since this nearly got away from me, I’m going to just jump right into my battle without any sort of update or anything.
Battle of the Bands is a twice-monthly blog hop hosted by Stephen T. McCarthy. On the 1st and 15th of each month, participating bloggers choose two covers of the same song and pit them against one another in a “battle”, and their readers choose the winner by listening to both versions and voting for their favorite in the comments. Some bloggers only participate on either the 1st or the 15th. I participate both times, most of the time. On the 7th and the 21st, the votes are tallied and a winner announced in a separate post.
I thought my last battle was going to be pretty close, but it wasn’t. Not even a little bit. Let’s see how my picks this time go!
The song for this battle is The Clash – Should I Stay Or Should I Go?”
The first contender is KT Tunstall. This plays at the end of You Should Have Left, and I was floored by how amazing it is!
In this equally fantastic rendition, Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra feature vocals by Kylie Minogue.
Well…who’s it going to be? I think both ladies (and Jools & orchestra) put truly unique spins on this song, and were pretty different from one another.
Be sure to vote in the comments and come back on the 21st to see how your favorite version fared.
Head over to Stephen’s to see who the other participants are featuring in their battles!
