It’s Results Time for my most recent battle, pitting Lynryd Skynryd’s Sweet Home Alabama against Neil Young’s Southern Man.
I suspected going in that this really was a No Contest battle and the results went on to prove that true. I assumed that Sweet Home Alabama was going to reign supreme in this contest and that they did! However, I was surprised that the battle didn’t end in a Shut Out. Neil Young did end up getting a few votes and I was very pleased about that, especially because I think his performance of his song was fantastic.
The final tally:
Lynyrd Skynryd’s Sweet Home Alabama: 11 votes (including my own)
Neil Young’s Southern Man: 3 votes
This was a fun battle to put together and I’m very grateful to Stephen McCarthy for passing his great idea onto me. Thanks Stephen!
On another note: I will be missing the next two battles as I’m taking some time off. I’ll be back for the March 15th battle.
To close us out, I’ll leave you with my favorite Lynyrd Skynyrd song, Gimme Back My Bullets:
As always, thanks for your participation. See you all soon!
