#BattleOfTheBands Results : The Guitar Man
Is it me, or did this week just fly by without even a half pause? I must be getting old, because I keep losing track of time. I’ll sit down to do a task on the computer, and next thing I know hours have passed me by.
The battle this week was The Guitar Man by Bread. Our contestants were Cake and Starflyer 59. After the initial vote from Mr Stephen, I was beginning to lose a bit of faith in my contenders, but more votes rolled in and that faith was restored. Cake did their best to prove they are the best thing since sliced ‘Bread’... and Starflyer 59 rocked it out the best they could. As of the afternoon on Feb 7, I had a tie score! So now, I must cast my vote to break the tie.
While I felt as though they are both strong contenders, I felt that Cake edged out Starflyer 59 but just slightly.
In the comments, Lee mentioned that he thought this song sounded like something Neil Young would do. Well, Lee, I couldn’t find a video with just Neil Young - but I did find this gem that featured: Nellie McKay, KT Tunstall, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Stephen Stills, Stevie Wonder, CSNY, Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Neil Young, Billy Joel and David Gates. Of course, the song is performed by Bread - but it’s an interesting video.
What did you think of this battle? Do you have a favorite Bread song?
Did you miss this battle? Be sure to come back on the 15th for another battle. I’ve got an interesting one lined up.
I nearly forgot to include this last bit.
