So, last time I decided to give you three different songs, all of which were named “Do It Again,” and have you choose the one you liked the best. The contestants were Steely Dan, The Kinks, and The Beach Boys. Unfortunately for Ray Davies and crew, The “Do It Again” by The Kinks got no votes. Sorry guys, better luck next time.
So that left Steely Dan and The Beach Boys in a battle between East and West Coast. I knew The Beach Boys would get at least one vote (from Stephen, who did not disappoint), which would keep them from getting shut out. Still, the result was pretty much decisive:
Steely Dan: 8
The Beach Boys: 2
Congratulations to Steely Dan (essentially Donald Fagen, since Walter Becker passed away in 2017) and a hearty “well done” to The Beach Boys.
My next Battle of the Bands will be next Saturday, June 15, so be sure and stop by then!
