#BattleOfTheBands Results : Look What They've Done To My Song, Ma
Look what they’ve done to my song, Ma! I’m sure many artists who have had their songs covered have wanted to say this very thing. Some may be rolling over like Beethoven, while others are very much flattered.
Melanie Safka wrote the song in 1970 and it was used as the B-side to her cover of “Ruby Tuesday”
I’ve always enjoyed Melanie’s songs. Whenever I hear her name, I immediately think of “Brand New Key”. Then that song gets stuck in my head until the next earworm shows up.
But let’s get on to the results of this battle. The first two votes looked promising, as they were each for the two contenders. But then The New Seekers took off on mad dash. Thank goodness a few more votes came in to save Ray Coniff from a huge defeat.
The final tally -
The New Seekers with 7 votes
Ray Coniff with 3 votes
Let’s hear it for Melanie - the true winner!
What did you think of this battle? Do you have a favorite Melanie song?
Be sure to come back on the 1st for another battle. Not quite sure what I’ve got planned yet, so it’ll be a surprise for us all.
