Given that my last battle was such a lopsided victory, this one was a surprise. No, not a surprise, a relief. Just to recap, the song was Ruby & The Romantics’ “Our Day Will Come,” and the contestants were Amy Winehouse and Brenda Lee.
Amy Winehouse: 5
I thought Amy Winehouse would run away with this one when the first several votes put her ahead 4-1, but then Miss Dynamite came roaring back and took this one. Which doesn’t surprise me, actually: there are good things about both versions, both women sound great, and you can’t beat the song. I put the two versions up against each other because I liked both of them and was hoping for the kind of battle I ended up with.
Anyway, congratulations to Brenda Lee and kudos to Amy Winehouse.
The next battle will be on April 1, coincidentally also the first day of the A to Z Challenge. This time I won’t pick a song that could be construed as part of that challenge… Join us then!
