I’m finally coming in with my Battle of the Bands RESULTS post. Sorry for the delay but my Mom had surgery today and it’s been a bit crazy getting everything ready and taken care of beforehand — like getting her taxes done yesterday, which was a long grueling process, and just all the rest. You know. Anyway, I just bounced in to tally up the votes. Our battle was between the Hollywood Vampires and Low Cut Connie as to who did the best cover version of Harry Nilsson’s “Jump Into the Fire.”
Before the winner is crowned I’ll share with you my vote:
I thought this was a tough battle because both bands brought their A-games to this one. The Hollywood Vampires version is great and I love how they incorporate into the song two of Harry Nilsson’s other hit songs, “One” at the beginning and “Coconut” at the end. This all-star supergroup no doubt has some powerful musicianship.
However, as much as I liked the Hollywood Vamps version, I was bowled over by Low Cut Connie’s energy and the band’s synergy that come together to crank out some kickass music. Frontman Adam Weiner rocks the piano…and I love me some decent piano-playing. I also enjoyed watching their video as it’s obvious that this group of guys really enjoy what they’re doing and they have fun performing.
So my vote for “Jump Into the Fire” goes to Low Cut Connie.
Now, how did everyone else vote? Well, it was a nail-biter battle for sure. It’s pretty evenly split. In fact, had I voted for Hollywood Vampires, this battle would be ending in a tie. But since my vote landed with Low Cut Connie, the tally shakes out like this:
LOW CUT CONNIE – 7 votes
HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES – 5 votes
Thanks everybody, for playing along. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you. I’ll close out this Results post with another great music video of Low Cut Connie doing their song “Boozophilia”, which you know if you read my battle blurb on the band, was on Obama’s 2015 summer Spotify playlist. Give this a watch and you’ll see why I like these guys so much. So much in fact that I’ll be doing an “Artist Spotlight” on the group in one of my upcoming Monday’s Music Moves Me posts. Stay tuned.
So, what did you think of this Low Cut Connie music video?
Hey, I’ll be back next month on the 15th with my next Battle of the Bands. Until then, shake it up and rock on…
