Hello Kittens & Dawgs, thank you for joining me for today’s Battle of the Bands showdown. I’m taking a different approach. Instead of two cover songs, I’m using two different song covers by daughters of their famous dads in honor of Father’s Day.
Song folk writer and artist Harry Chapin wrote and recorded, “Cat’s In The Cradle” in 1974 that topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart the same year. Now, fast forward 2007, 33 years after Harry penned this song his daughter Jen records her dad’s #1 hit.
Artist #1 Chapin’s daughter
From the album A SONG FOR MY FATHER, Brian Wilson co-wrote “Warmth of the Sun” and first recorded by the California surfin’ sensation of the band he co-founded, The Beach Boys (I think Love is the lead vocalist) in 1964. Many years Wilson recorded I WASN’T MADE FOR THESE TIMES with this classic song on the album.
Artist #2: Brian Wilson’s daughters
Typically I do not offer three songs but I found one worthy if nothing else for the opening tribute to a great country lengend and father of Rosanne Cash.
Artist #3 Johnny’s daughter singing his 1961 #11 peak song Tennessee Flat Top Box. The YouTube video embedding code is disabled, so I cannot share it on my site.
Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional).
Which daughter gets your vote – Chapin, Wilson, or Cash?

What songs come to mind when you think of your dad?
The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players. I’ll share a quick post next week with the outcome and I hope you’ll check back. Join me on the dance floor for Monday’s Music Moves Me. Have a bandtastic day!
