Thanks to Stephen T McCarthy for yet another idea. Knowing I’ve been doing these "same name, different song" pairings, he suggested this one, between two songs named "Sunday Morning" (more or less).
The Velvet Underground with Nico
The Velvet Undergroung with Nico did "Sunday Morning" on their eponymous 1967 album.
Spanky & Our Gang
According to the notes that accompany the video, ""Sunday Mornin’" written by Margo Guryan, recorded by Spanky and Our Gang, and released as a single by Mercury Records reached No. 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #39 on the Billboard easy listening chart on February 10–17, 1968. It was included in The group’s second album, Like to Get to Know You, released in April 1968."
OK! Those are our contestants. Now, here’s what I’d like you to do:
- Listen to the two songs.
- Decide which song you like the best.
- Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
- Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:
I’ll tally the votes and announce the winner next Wednesday, January 22, so be sure and cast your vote by then. And remember, anyone can vote!
The lines are now open! Good luck to The Velvet Underground with Nico and Spanky & Our Gang!
