Macy Gray VS The Hoax in Superstition #BOTB results

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Good-afternoon, kittens & dawgs! I. Am. So. Behind! That’s what happens when you spend the day in the mountains on Monday followed by too many things to do on your list. I’m floundering around trying to play catch up, which is making me terribly dizzy in the process.

Composure, Cathy, you gotta have composure. Breathe. Good. Now, let’s get down to business. This last battle started off heavily in favor of The Hoax, but Macy Gray managed to gain momentum, but she didn’t snag enough votes to take the lead. The final count was…

The Hoax 11

Macy Gray 7

For the most part, everyone (including myself) preferred The Hoax funkiness who kept their cover closer to Stevie Wonders vibe over that of Gray’s slower, moodier version. It was interesting to see how the margin narrowed between the two contenders and in the end I was happy it wasn’t horribly lopsided one way.

Superstition #BOTB showdown

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

It’s mid-October and you know what that means, kittens and dawgs, don’t cha? It’s time for round 2 of Battle of the Bands.

I decided to go with a theme for this battle and with Halloween at the end of the month, then I elected to use Stevie Wonder’s 1973, not included in the showdown, hit song Superstition.

Introducing contender #1, a new-to-me British Blue band, The Hoax. What surprised me to learn is this group has been around 20 years and I’m just now hearing them.  What’s with that? Oh, well…here they are doing Stevie Wonder’s #1 tune, Superstition.

 

Contender # 2, is another new-to-me artist. This America R&B jazz singer/song writer’s unique vocals style steps Wonder’s song pace down a notch bringing something different to this cover. Kindly listen to Macy Gray!

 


Alrighty, boys and girls, you know what to do. Tell me in comments who gets your vote and why. There’s no wrong pick other than the one you don’t make. So have fun!

#BOTB results of Sugar Sugar

Good-morning, fellow BOTBers and fans (those of you who aren’t actively participating, but who vote and love music)! Let me say, sharing two covers for Sugar Sugar was fun and I believe I stirred some memories for many of you.

First off, let me say thanks to everyone who hopped over and voted for their favorite candidate. At first I thought this showdown was going to swing in favor of one artist, but as the votes trickled in then it provided to not be a complete shut out.

The popular opinion, including myself, felt Wilson Pickett did the job better capturing 13 of the 17 votes!

Wilson Pickett recorded more than 50 songs to hit the US R&B charts and many crossed over to the US Billboard Hot 100. It comes as no surprise with this sort of songwriting and recording impact in his career that led to his 1991 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I hope to see you Kittens and Dawgs back here for September 1st round one of Battle of the Bands. This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with In the Midnight Hour!

#BOTB results of duel between stars

Howdy, kittens and dawgs! First up, let me say thanks for making my August 1st BOTB so much fun. I have to admit when I decided on the two artists to use I was a bit hesitant. I guess my insecurities of whether or not my challenge would be liked or not played on my brain, but I felt goofy and thought why not? After all, it’s my post and battle showdown. So I decided to just breathe in and have fun with it.

I was happy to see my silly duel between stars fared well among my fellow BoTBers. Why, I even managed to make some smile and others laugh-out-loud.

Without further ado, it gives me delight to say….William Shatner’s over-the-top, cheesy cover won 10 to 5!

To round things out, I invite you to listen to another dramatic cover done by Shatner (skip to 0:53).

 

Don’t forget to come back for round two of August BoTB on the 15th.  The world is a bit better because of music, so keep playing those songs!
