Battle of the (Wilson) Band Results - Doctor My Eyes
But it didn't seem that way at first. At first I thought Wilson Phillips was going to run away with all the votes, but after the first round was finished, we had a 3-3 tie.
First Round Votes for Wilson Phillips: Debbie, Alex & Shady
First Round Votes for Gretchen Wilson: Arlee, eViL pOp TaRt &Guilie
The second round was much different. Wilson Phillips let Gretchen Wilson take charge. Gretchen won the second round 4-1
Second Round Votes for Wilson Phillips: diedre
Second Round Votes for Gretchen Wilson: Robin, Dixie, ReInVintagedGoods, Cathy
The tides turned in the third round though, and Wilson Phillips was back. Racking up double the votes Gretchen received. This nearly tied up the battle. The war waged on.
Third Round Votes for Wilson Phillips: Michele, Stephanie, mike, Chero
Third Round Votes for Gretchen Wilson: Chrys, Mary
Unfortunately, the battle tuckered one of the contestants out and they soon gave up the battle giving their rival the decisive win.
Fourth Round Votes for Wilson Phillips: John,
Fourth Round Votes for Gretchen Wilson: Stephen, Birgit, A Gal Needs, FAE
With a final score of 9-13
Congratulations to Gretchen Wilson
Arlee Bird - Back in the 90's I went through a big Wilson Phillips fan phase. I figured I'd be going for their version before even listening. Then Gretchen started taking hold of me. I like the crisp punchy sound of Gretchen's version. The more I listened, the more I started liking her voice. Give my vote to Gretchen Phillips for this match.
Robin - Gretchen Wilson has a powerful voice that's grittier (and sometimes raw in a good way). So, I prefer her sound on this one, but they were both good.
Debbie D. - Gretchen Wilson's twang didn't sound pleasing to my ears, so my vote goes to the harmonies of Wilson Phillips.
ReInVintagedGoods - Wilson gets my vote!
Chrys Fey - I'm voting for Gretchen Wilson. I like the piano, the beat, her voice. Win, win, win. I do like the band Wilson Philips, though.
diedre Knight - Well, Mr. Wilson I do believe Dr. Welby is the only one to Doctor My Eyes ;-) I hate to castaway the country gal, but Wilson Phillips gets my vote!
Stephanie Faris - Not a fan of country music (despite living in Nashville!). I'm going to go with Wilson Phillips. It wasn't cool to say so in the 90s, but I've always found their voices so ear-pleasing!
Mary Burris - Well. I am surprised at myself. I honestly thought I would be giving my vote to Wilson Phillips, as I have always enjoyed them. But Gretchen Wilson knocked it out of the park for me.
Stephen T. McCarthy - Hokey-Smoke, JEFFY, this was a good one, Brother! I liked both recordings but my vote is a total slam dunk. In fact, this one seemed so obvious to me that I'm rather shocked you have a close contest here. To my ears, this has "shutout" written all over it. GRETCHEN WILSON gets my vote. And, sheesh! Who the hell is playing that piano? Is that her? What a fabulous rolling keyboard sound - it knocks me out! The guitar work is absolutely first-rate, too.
mike spain - My vote is for Wilson Phillips, both versions were a bit pop however I liked the harmonies on Wilson Phillips.
A GAL NEEDS - That's a tough one! One would be a great party song because it would blend right into the background smoothly and enhance the mood--namely Wilson Phillips. Gretchen's would be more of an acoustic performance, where one actually pays attention to the vocals, instrumentals, and harmonies! My vote goes to Gretchen for that reason.
farawayeyes - SURPRISE! SURPRISE! I liked Gretchen Wilson better than Wilson Phillips. I don't care for much of her other stuff ('Red Neck Woman'-an absolute disgrace to the female kind), but this one was rockin'. Give Gretchen my vote.
John Holton -Gretchen Wilson sounded like they stripped the vocal track out of Jackson Browne's version and substituted her voice.
Once again, thanks to everyone who stopped by and placed a vote.
Come back again for a new battle April 1st
