Macy Gray VS The Hoax in Superstition #BOTB results

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.

Minion artist gets words wrong

 

Taking A Moment to Myself to rest my Bones until the Boogie Oogie #music moves me!

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! On my latest BoTB edition, I featured two R&B artists doing Stevie Wonder’s hit song, Superstition. To keep the momentum going with the polls only days away from closing, I wanted to share more tunes by these contenders.

First is the American R&B vocals of Macy Gray.

 

The second Rhythm & Blues band hails from across the pond by way of Great Britain. I present…The Hoax!

There’s nothing like taking A Moment to Myself to rest my Bones until the Boogie Oogie music moves me!

Superstition #BOTB showdown

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!
