BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “Our Day Will Come” Results


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.

Brenda Lee: 6
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!

  1. John,

    My battle started strong for the loser, too. I was surprised with how mine went down. Anyhow, I’m happy to learn my favorite pick won the showdown. I would’ve been disappointed had it gone any other way. Thanks for sharing the outcome and have a good weekend. Ours won’t be the greatest given the circumstances. Your prayers are appreciated.


    1. I know what it’s like to have a parent die. Is your husband the executor? I was for my mother, and if it weren’t for her lawyer and my youngest brother (who’s the only one left in the Chicago area), I couldn’t have done it.


  2. I’m nearly ecstatic that BRENDA LEE won. I love her so, and yet she lost both times I used her in BOTB in the past. And I seem to recall some other BOTBer using her once before also, and she lost then, too. An 0-3 record in the Battles.

    In my original comment / bote, I almost wrote something like this: “John, Brenda Lee is great but she can’t seem to win in BOTB. I’ve made the decision not to use her in my Battles anymore.”

    But here, she finally got that monkey off her back and proved that she CAN win “the big one”. I’m pleased.

    Great Battle. A one-vote margin of victory with “Little Miss Dynamite” coming out on top. Hmmm…. maybe I’ll reconsider using her again someday in one of my future BOTB contests.
