BATTLE OF THE BANDS: Tony Burrows Results

Just to refresh your memory: my last Battle of the Bands featured three songs done by three different bands, all of which had the same lead singer, Tony Burrows. Here are the results:

Edison Lighthouse, “Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)”: 9

Brotherhood of Man, “United We Stand”: 1

The First Class, “Beach Baby”: 3

So, congratulations to the band calling itself Edison Lighthouse (according to Wikipedia, “Edison Lighthouse was named after the Eddystone Lighthouse off the coast of Devon. The band later dropped the Lighthouse and became just Edison.”), and kudos to Brotherhood of Man and The First Class.

Our next Battle of the Bands will take place on Saturday, June 1. See you then!

    1. The lighthouse thing was just something where I had to take Wikipedia’s word for it. Thanks for confirming it. And “Love Grows” was a hell of a record.


  1. This was a cool battle, especially the part about Tony Burrows being the lead singer of each of the three different band contenders. I’m not surprised that Edison Lighthouse won. That is such a good song. I think my second pick would’ve been Brotherhood of Man. I like the band name too.

  2. Well, well–looks like I was in with the “In Crowd” this time. It was a fun race, but not much of a contest for Edison Lighthouse.

    1. Maybe I should have used “My Baby Loves Lovin'” by White Plains as one of the contestants. I didn’t because that and “Love Grows” were on the charts at almost the same time. Wonder how that would have gone?


      1. “My Baby Loves Lovin'” is a catchy song but I think I like it least of all of the choices.
