#RMF2019 #BOTB Results
Day 22 of #RocktoberMusicFest2019
Today is results day for the mid-month Battle of the Bands. I figured the best way to honor the winner is to share an entire playlist of their songs.
But before we get started with that, let’s go over the results:
The Kinks with 6.5 votes
Van Halen with 2.5 votes
Wikipedia tells us this about The Kinks:
The Kinks are an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1964 by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. They are regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of the 1960s. The band emerged during the height of British rhythm and blues and Merseybeat, and were briefly part of the British Invasion of the United States until their touring ban in 1965. Their third single, the Ray Davies-penned "You Really Got Me", became an international hit, topping the charts in the United Kingdom and reaching the Top 10 in the United States. Their music was influenced by a wide range of genres, including rhythm and blues, British music hall, folk and country. They gained a reputation for reflecting English culture and lifestyle, fuelled by Ray Davies' wittily observational writing style, and are considered one of the most influential groups of the period.
Here are 10 of their songs:
- All Day And All Of The Night
- Tired Of Waiting
- Waterloo Sunset
- A Well Respected Man
- Sunny Afternoon
- Come Dancing
Did anyone else notice that Destroyer is a complete Rip Off of Lola?
