THE RESULTS ARE IN! In case you haven’t noticed, the Angels Bark and Jingle Jangle Jungle blogs are in the middle of a battle tournament of epic proportions. This tournament
will may provide answer to a long-time battle between cat-lovers and dog-lovers. Who’s at the top: the dog or the cat?
Well, we’re one step closer on that quest. The Round Two battles took place on August 1st, featuring soft song versions (Round One was the hard-rock battle). Here the soft-rock battle pitted Lobo’s “Me and You and a Dog Named Boo” against Marvin Gaye’s “I’ll Be Doggone.”
I just tallied the votes. And this was an exciting battle, especially at first as both songs were running neck and neck. But Marvin Gaye pulled ahead and kept on going, coming out the winner.
Both songs are winners in my opinion. I really love both songs and I was pretty undecided on where to place my vote. In the end, I went with Lobo. I guess because it is such a beloved song (except by John 🙂 ) and has been a long-time favorite of mine. But I’m not at all disappointed by the result:
Lobo with “Me and You and a Dog Named Boo” received 4 votes.
Marvin Gaye with “I’ll Be Doggone” received 7 votes.
Marvin Gaye’s “I’ll Be Doggone” is the Round Two Winner.
So what’s next in this epic battle? ROUND THREE will pit the Round One’s HARD ROCK DOG against Round Two’s SOFT ROCK DOG.
(Mary’s Round Three battle will feature Hard Rock Cat vs Soft Rock Cat)
Thanks for your participation and your votes.
Be sure to come back on August 15th for ROUND THREE of the
Ultimate Dog v Cat Battle of the Bands Tournament!
Since we won’t be seeing Lobo in Round Three, I’m going to leave you with another Lobo hit from the 70s. Here’s “I’d Love You to Want Me”, Lobo’s highest charting hit from 1972. It hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for two weeks (it was kept from the top spot by Johnny Nash’s “I Can See Clearly Now”, another favorite of mine).
See you in 5 days for Round Three!
