Battle of the Bands Results - Giving It All Up For Love

Congratulations to my first Battle of the Band winner - Phil Lynott.

This was an interesting battle for me, and difficult as I am a Huey Lewis fan and I really wanted to see him win the battle. That being said, I certainly didn't want to sway anyone, and I wanted to make the challenge interesting and fair. This was the reason I decided to go with a lesser known song of Huey Lewis. When I heard Phil Lynott's version of 'Giving It All Up For Love', I loved it and immediately knew this was going to be my first battle.

Votes came in early for Huey Lewis and I was concerned it was going to be a sweep. But after the first five votes were in, Lynott was already leading 3-2. After ten votes, there were another 3 for Lynott and 2 more for Huey lewis making the total 6-4, Lynott. Ironically enough, the next ten votes resulted the same number of 6-4 in favour of Lynott. The total after 20 votes was 12-8. As the last four votes came in, Huey started to make a come back. Lynott only received one vote. The last two votes to come in were for Huey Lewis and I gave my vote to Huey Lewis aslo. So the final results are: 13-11 Lynott / Lewis.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and placed a vote.

      No matter which artist I am usually in favour of. I think the best thing I truly want is a good battle.
      This one certainly was.

      And yes, it is fun to watch the votes come in. I had no idea how the final score was going to be because the votes seemed to go back and forth.
