It’s Results Day for my Battle of the Bands, this time featuring Patti Smith’s song Dancin’ Barefoot. Contenders were U2 vs The Feelies.
Not surprisingly, the majority of voters went with U2. While I really enjoyed U2’s version, and I love them as a band, I found myself more drawn to the Feelies. I liked the simplicity of the music in their version, and the vocals more.
The final battle tally is:
U2 — 9 votes
The Feelies – 5 votes
To close us out today, I thought I’d present The Feelies highest charting single, “Away” from their 1988 album Only Life. Its position was #6 on the US Modern Rock chart.
As always, thanks for participating in my battle. See you on December 1st for the next one…
