Battle of the Bands Results
Another battle has come and gone…
We spent the past week casting votes here at Jingle Jangle Jungle for what we believe the best cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain”
I think my friend Michele from Angels Bark described the battle best when she described the contenders as “mild, hot, and blazin’” Harry Styles representing the ‘mild’, The Show Ponies representing the ‘hot’, and Taking Dawn representing the ‘blazin’’. Using this analogy, it would appear that the majority of you like a little spice, but not too much!
I did have a potential 4th contestant, but I intentionally did not include them in the battle. This particular cover was used by HBO as the theme song to their documentary series “Family Bonds” This version was not promoted as a single, but still debuted at number 36 on the US Mainstream Rock Chart in 2004. I felt that this might give them an unfair advantage over the other contenders.
Here is their version:
What did you think of this battle? Did your vote go to the winner? I’ve got (in my opinion) a pretty decent battle lined up for October 1st. I do hope to see you all there. Bring your friends. Encourage them to vote for the contestants.
Oh hey… before I go.. I wanted to invite you to come join in some month-long fun that will be taking place here during the month of October. I’m hosting a blog hop “Rocktober MusicFest” with fresh linky to join each day. You can join in as much as every day, or just once or twice - your level of participation is up to you. If you want to join me in the fun, all you need to do is write a post with a song and video that also falls under the category of ‘Rock’. This can any sub-genre of Rock. (Hard Rock, Soft Rock, Alternative, Punk, Acid, Classic, Rockabilly, Southern, etc) For more details Click the graphic in the sidebar or click this graphic:
I hope you’ll join me in this celebration of Rock!
