Battle of the Bands RESULTS: Taxman


(If you’re looking for my A-Z post, please scroll down to the next post)

It’s Results Day for Battle of the Bands and I’ve tallied all the votes. The Beatles’ Taxman was the song and the contenders were Stevie Ray Vaughan vs. Rockwell.

First of all, the voting was down I think because of the A-Z Challenge. Even so, this was a tight battle with both artists neck and neck throughout the voting. I was hoping for a different outcome though.

My choice did not win. I voted for Rockwell. Overall I liked the sound better. I didn’t care for Stevie Ray’s vocals at all. But it was a close call:

Stevie Ray with 8 votes

Rockwell with 7 votes

So I guess that’s what they call a good battle. I just wish it had turned out the other way around…I really wanted to see Rockwell win this one.

As always, thanks for participating! See you on May 1st for my next battle…

  1. Hi, Michele!

    A close contest is a satisfying outcome even when the artist you favor doesn’t win. Stevie’s version captured my vote because I enjoyed the guitar playing and because I thought the arrangement was better suited to the song.

    Thanks, Michele!

    • Indeed, I’d much rather have a close tight battle than a blowout, that’s for sure.
      Thanks for your vote. Congrats on picking the winner. 🙂


  2. On the losing side again… I’m starting to get used to it.

    As for voting, this is the worst turnout I’ve had for BotB in a really long time, I think the A to Z really killed participation.

    • So we’ll commiserate together. I really wanted Rockwell to take this one. But he almost did. I think he would’ve, had more people participated. Yeah, the A-Z really didn’t help the voting, that’s for sure.
