#BOTB double post with duel between stars

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello, rock n’ roll kittens & dawgs!  Technically, I’m still on break. I goofed up last month by not posting the results of  the Mr. Bojangles #BOTB showdown with the onset of DH getting laid off (this is what created the disruption to my blogging ~ a pleasant, but unexpected routine buster all the same) for the umpteenth time over the course of our 36 years of marriage.

Anywho, if you weren’t keeping a count and I seriously doubt that any of you did not mentally take note of the tally for both contenders, but on the off-chance you are clueless (my normal state of mind) then let me say Nina Simone shot Nancy Wilson out of the ballpark with a 15 to 2 victory.

Most of y’all felt, and I agree, that a female vocalist didn’t suit the song, but I wanted to do something different because…well, I’m different. 😀 However, it seems no matter which two artists/band I choose to dual the vote count is usually lopsided.

Today battle I’m using an oldie from the 60s, Mr. Tambourine Man. It’s hard to beat the The Byrds 1965 cover of Bob Dylan’s original. So….I’m taking a fun approach.  I found two artists who are better known as movie stars performing this classic tune. After you listen, then share in comments who gets your vote and why.

 

 

 

 

Who gets your vote Kevin Costner, the more serious singer style or William Shatner, the more dramatic cheesy version? Both have their pluses and minuses. In a weird sorta of way, I kinda like Shatner’s form, but I haven’t totally decided who gets my vote yet.

I’m still on my blog break, but plan to pop in from time-to-time. Meanwhile join me for more epic battle showdowns and to learn how this all works by visiting STMcCP.
