I’m breaking away from my blogging break to bring you, Kittens & Dawgs another edition of Battle of the Bands. This morning’s battle inspired song is from the “60s Rock Songs” theme a few weeks ago on Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me.
Written by Gerry Coffin and Carole King, The Shirelles recorded and took this song to the top of the chart in 1960. This morning, I’m sharing two contemporary versions of this rock classic that are different but equally enjoyable. Now, listen for yourself!
Contender #1 slow tempo, jazz style of Ali Ollie Woodson.
Contender #2 heavy rocker tenderly caressing this song for a magical cover with James Durbin.
Ok, here’s the drill. 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 artist gets your vote, Woodson or Durbin?
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 will share the results of this battle on Monday, June 12th in my Monday Mewsic Moves Me post (Freebie week – your choice) and I hope you’ll check back to see who wins.
I’m slinking off for now but don’t worry I am making returns visits (sometimes a bit slow but I will get around to ya) to all who stop by and I definitely plan to cast my vote in each fellow BoTB participators showdown. Keep the mewsic playing and have a bandtastic summer, this is Curious as a Cathy signing off!
