Battle of the Bands RESULTS – I’m Your Captain by Grand Funk



It’s time to deliver the results from this month’s Battle of the Bands. The song was Grand Funk’s “I’m Your Captain” and the contenders were the German band Helloween vs. Portland’s Tom Forest.

I actually held out posting results for an extra day hoping that one more person would come and cast a vote because we have here a TIE. A tie that I can’t even break. My vote for Tom Forest brought the tally to a tie with six votes cast for each contender.

Birgit would’ve been the deciding vote BUT she couldn’t listen to Tom’s version as it wouldn’t play in Canada and I couldn’t find a version that would work for her there. So she wasn’t able to cast a bonafide vote in all fairness.

With that, I say Congratulations to both artists. Well played!

As always, thanks for participating in my battle. See you next month on November 15th for my next round of warring music acts.

  1. DOH! The dreaded Tie. Oh well, it’s still much better’n a Shutout.

    Michele, have you had a Tie before?
    The first one isn’t so bad, because you’re thinking: Wow! I put together a Battle so tough that no one could win it. But after that first thrill is gone, Ties just leave ya feelin’ like it was all a big waste of time. At least that’s been my own experience with Ties. Me no likey!

    • Hey Stephen,
      This is my third tie. I’d rather have a tie that I can break with my vote, but I don’t mind a tie really. I mean, I’d rather have a clear winner but when it’s a tie I feel like it was a decent battle, with evenly matched contenders.
      My other ties were with the Eagles song “Best of My Love” with Aswad and Yvonne Elliman battling and then a year & a half later the battle using the Lulu song “To Sir with Love” lead to a tie between 10,000 Maniacs and Tina Arena.
      For sure, a tie is much preferred over a shutout or a runaway battle.


    • Thanks Tom! Yes, I thought Helloween was going to take the win as they had the lead for a good run there. I’m glad it ended the way it did.
      I’ll be over at your place later tonight or tomorrow to check out your latest post.
