Battle of the Bands Results - Lily Was Here
First Round Picks were all thrown towards Candy Dulfer. Voters in the first round were Stephanie, Shady, Arlee and Robin.
The second round saw 75% of the votes going to sweet Candy.
Candy Dulfer Second Round - Michele, Dixie, Chrys
Silvermoon received one vote from Birgit.
The third round was entirely thrown towards Candy Dulfer once again. This time votes were received from Mike, Mary, Cathy and Kim from ReInintaged.
The final battle gave one more vote to Silvermoon, via Janie. However, the rest of the votes were captured by Candy; John, Stephen and FAE.
So without further hoopla,
the winner with a final score of 14-2 is....
Congratulations to Candy Dulfer and her Sax

Stephanie Faris - I've heard that song before! I didn't know the name of it. I'm going to vote for #2--Candy Dulfer and David A. Stewart. The first one sounds like something you'd hear in a club and that music always seems obnoxious to me. Like an ear assault.
Arlee Bird - This was a totally new song to me. I like it! Interesting Battle. Both versions have merit to my listening sensibilities. I enjoyed the synth-jazz version by Silvermoon--the trance style is cool, but I'm not always in the mood for it. The real jazzier version by Duffer and Stewart was definitely the cooler and more musical of the two. I go with the second version.
Birgit - I give my vote to Silvermoon, I like the temp more because I never got into the sax the way it was played in the '80's-always had a tinge of sleaze to it:)
Chrys Fey - The first one was neat with the techno feel to it but a woman sax player won me over. My vote goes to Candy Dulfer.
Mary Burris - Candy and David A Stewart get my vote. I loved the smooth saxxyness.
Cathy Kennedy - This was an easy peasy pick for me. I didn't watch the videos. The first contender was too electro-technical. I wanted the jazz mood you're currently experience and Candy delivered on that.
John Holton - Candy Dulfer's version of this is classic. Because I felt that way, I wanted to hear if Silvermoon did anything different, and whether or not I liked it. Yes to the first question, no to the second. Candy Dulfer for me.
Janie Junebug - I vote for Silvermoon because their version makes me want to dance with Willy Dunne Wooters even though we don't dance.
Stephen T. McCarthy - Jazz is my favorite musical genre, but only because it begins with "J" and so does "J"effrey. The Silvermoon version started out pretty good but it became so monotonous so quickly - with that Electronica-TechnoPop sound - that by the 1:15 mark, the honeymoon was over. At the 2:22 mark, I hit the "Stop" button because I could take no more of that "repetitiously monotonous sameness".
farawayeyes - I clicked the first one off at exactly the 1:13 minute mark and I listened to the second one twice. You can guess (easily) which one I vote for.
Once again, thanks to everyone who stopped by and placed a vote.
