Battle of the Bands RESULTS: Take Me To The River


I’m super late getting my Results post up. So sorry about that! But here it is:

The song was Al Green’s spirited Take Me to the River and the contenders were Al Green and the Talking Heads. It ended up being a very close battle. Al Green won by 2 votes.

My vote went to the Talking Heads. I definitely enjoyed Al Green’s version, loved his soulful voice and that gravelly scream and the horns but I was more connected to the Talking Heads distinctive sound. I was undecided for quite a time but my decision came down to one question: If I was stuck somewhere and only had one song to listen to, which version would I want to listen to over and over? My answer was the Talking Heads version.

Here’s the final tally:

Al Green:   9 votes

Talking Heads: 7 votes

As always, thanks for participating in my battle. See you on the 15th for the next one! Again, my apologies for being so late with this results post… But here’s another Al Green Great: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart  —  I’m in a little need of mending myself…

    No one said a word about the sorrow

    Hi, Michele!

    I enjoyed this version of “How Can You Mend…” by Al Green, especially when the female backing singers joined in. I am pleased to learn that Rev. Al won this battle in a close race even though your ears did not match mine. I am also happy to know that you and I match on other, more important matters.

    I can’t wait for your next music competition. Have a great day, dear friend Michele!
