Battle of the Bands - When I Write the Book
Exactly one year ago I joined the Battle of the Bands community. I've seen members come and go, but one thing has remained constant, the battles have continued to be interesting, inspiring, informative and fun.
Special thanks go out to:
FAE / Far Away Eyes - For starting all this madness. (She has since stepped down from the music battles).
Stephen T. McCarthy - For keeping and maintaining the battles. What would we do without him?
And the Arlee Bird - Who, whether he realizes it or not, was a big encouragement for me to join in on the fun.
But! The biggest thanks goes to YOU. Without so many stopping by to listen and vote, this feature would not have lasted as long as it has.
So on to the battle!
Last year, I began my music battles with the song 'Giving It All Up For Love'. It was the version from Huey Lewis I was most familiar with but it was actually Philip Lynott's song.
This year, I decided to use Huey Lewis covering another song.
Last year, Huey failed to beat the original artist. Can he do better this year?
For reference only: (MY FIRST BOTB)

BATTLE OF THE BANDS
The two musical contenders for this Battle of the Bands are below.
Please listen to both and tell me who you like best.
Those are the two contenders. Ignoring the actual videos, who do you think performs the song best? I collected the two bands to battle it out, now it's your job to vote on your favourite. Please list your preferred song choice in the comments. Additionally, let me know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 22nd when I'll cast my vote (if needed) and announce the winner in a separate posting.
Additional Questions for BOTBers:
What was your first music battle? Who won?
What inspired you to join?
What date/year did you join?
Additional Questions for everyone else:
Besides a wedding or birthday, what anniversary to you pay special attention to?
Have you ever considered joining BOTB? (We would love to have you).
When you hear a well known song being performed by someone else, do you immediately dislike it or do you try and give it it's own merit?
