Another in a long string of "same title, different songs," today’s battle pits two different songs called "The Letter" against each other. Here are your choices:
I just learned of Ms. Bonoff this past weekend. I’m not sure if legitimately never heard of her or I missed when the DJ played one of her recods on the radio. In any event, this is from her second studio album, 1979’s Restless Nights.
Joe’s rendition of The Box Tops’ 1967 hit, from 1970’s live album Mad Dogs and Englishmen.
So, those are your choices for today. Anyone with ears to hear is invited to do the following:
- 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 Tuesday, September 22, so be sure and get your vote to me by then.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Karla Bonoff and Joe Cocker!
