Battle of the Bands - It's A Long Way to the Top
This past April, I decided to start taking my blog seriously and joined an A-Z challenge. Not only did it help me find cool blogs to follow, I started to receive more attention. Indeed, I've started to see more traffic. I still compare my blog to others and have notice there is still not as much traffic as I'd like to see. It's obvious to me, I have a lot of work to do, and a long way to go. Yes, it's going to be a Long Way to the Top.
Which brings me to my Battle of the Band feature. Like Beevis, AC/DC is one of my favourite rock bands and has one of my favourite rock anthems. Can you guess what it is? That's right, "It's A Long Way To the Top". I love the song so much however, I refused to put them up against anyone else. It just wouldn't be fair. So I'm offering two covers of this great hit. Which song do you enjoy most?
Our first contender is Lucinda Williams. She is a music perfectionist and enthusiast.
Does this come across in her rendition? Take a listen:
Our second song is from the band Dropkick Murphy's. I love Celtic music and they do as well, but play it with a punk flair. Here is their rendition of "It's A Long Way to the Top".
So those are the two contenders. Who do you feel performs this song the best? I found the two bands to battle it out, now you have a job to do. It's time to vote on your favourite. Which group did you think performed the song best? Let me know in the comments. Also, please let me know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 22nd when I'll cast my own vote and announce the winner in a separate posting.
Did you enjoy the Battle of the Bands feature? Come back on the first of August when I'll have a new battle. Also, be sure to check out my friends below who have all banded together to offer up their own music battles.
