Battle of the Bands

Best of My Love #BOTB results

Last Monday, I paired two artists singing The Eagles’ #1 hit Best of My Love. The vote scales swung heavily to one side throughout this BoTB session. I hate it when that happens, don’t you? Does this mean the contenders weren’t a good match up to give each a run for the money or what?

A few regular BoTBers didn’t vote this round. Some folks couldn’t play Rod’s video. However, even if it had worked then I don’t know if things would more evenly balance out. I did add a link to a sample of the song with the hopes this helps those few not able to view the YouTube vid. *sigh* Does anyone have suggestions on how to correct this problem in the future?

Anyway, the final count stands as:

Rod – 12 (this includes my vote)

Aswad – 4

Congratulations Rod and thanks to every body who participated. Don’t forget to see how the other showdowns went down with Stephen the official BoTB roll call keeper!

I hope to see y’all back here on the 15th for round two of Battle of the Bands. It’s time to hit the dance floor with the amazing 4M crew.

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    I picked another winner this week. πŸ™‚
    Yes, I agree. It sucks when one band is favoured heavily against another. I hate when that happens. The past few battles mine were exactly like that. Fortunately this time around it seemed to be a real battle. No matter what, the battles are still fun, no matter who wins. And isn’t having fun what it’s all about?
    And yes, I really hate when a video won’t play in another country. Those rules and regulations are just dumb. I can never understand why some videos are restricted in one country from another.
    The additional song inclusion was a nice touch today.

      Jeffrey, I’ve had my share of lopsided showdowns, but the past handful played out better. However, you hit the point square on, it’s all about the fun. It doesn’t matter who wins or what the outcome is; it’s just fun. Oh yeah, I’m with you about the stupid video restrictions. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, either. I guess it’s just a way to control internet users. That’s the sole purpose of liberals anyhow. They aren’t happy unless they can control you.

    Hi, dear Cathy!

    The outcome of your battle pleases me and does not surprise me. Rod’s rep precedes him and makes him a heavy favorite going into any contest against a less well known artist. Whenever I encounter a video on a friend’s post that won’t play for whatever reason, I take a little time to search for it elsewhere. It usually only takes a few extra seconds to find at least a 30 second sound sample which gives you the gist of the recording.

    Thanks for the Rod Stewart bonus track. As the video reminds us, we are all getting older. πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful week, dear friend Cathy!

      Tom, I figured Rod would be the favorite by most, but I didn’t think the votes would be this off balance. I find I have the same problem with viewing vids when I visit a friend’s site in another country, too. I just find one myself to listen to. I wish I knew ahead of time, though when it’s going to be a problem for those who visit Curious as a Cathy. I don’t think there is a way for me to know that, is there? Oh well, I appreciate your stopping by to share with me this morning. I hope you have a grand week, my friend!
