Battle of the Bands RESULTS: Evil Woman and Crow vs. Black Sabbath


It’s Results time for my most recent Battle of the Bands. Using the song Evil Woman (Don’t Play Your Games with Me), I pitted the original version by Crow against a cover version by Black Sabbath. This was definitely an interesting battle and the votes were coming in with neck and neck results. The first 16 votes yielded 8 to Crow and 8 to Black Sabbath. But then Crow took the lead and pulled out the victory in this battle.

Final Tally:

Crow:   14 votes (including mine)

Black Sabbath:  9 votes

I voted for Crow because of the horns. I love me some brass! I will admit though, it was a difficult decision for me because I really liked Tony Iommi’s guitar in the middle of the Black Sabbath version. So I teetered on the fence for a little while. But the horns in Crow’s version won me over.

So that’s it for this edition of Battle of the Bands. Be sure to come back on June 1st for yet another battle. Thanks to everyone who participated!

    • I’m so glad that I introduced you to a band you aren’t familiar with. Especially because I find you to be so knowledgeable about so many different bands.
      Thanks for playing! Enjoy the rest of your weekend…


    • Lol. That’s right Barbara. Hope you’re having a great weekend. Enjoy your Sunday tomorrow. Thanks again for playing!


  1. Hi, Michele!

    YAY! I finally wound up on the winning team in a band battle. As an added bonus, your ears matched mine. Those 60s and early 70s horn bands were sensational and Crow has always been a favorite of mine. You pulled off a close contest and I congratulate you on offering voters two solid versions of “Evil Woman.” I look forward to your next BOTB, dear friend Michele. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. Well, that was a dilly of a battle and interesting to learn about the Black Sabbath connection the this song. The outcome was as it should have been, but I will say that I came very close to voting for Sabbath.
