Let’s see if I can get back on track with this. I have two groups covering John Lennon’s song "In My Life" (from 1965’s Rubber Soul). Both groups are new-to-me and I like what I hear so far from them. See what you think.

The MonaLisa Twins

Mona and Lisa Wagner were born in Austria, but now live in Liverpool. Rather than me trying to read and summarize their lives, here’s a link to their biography page.

The REO Brothers

The REO Brothers (Reno 25, RJ 23, Raymart 21, and Ralph 18) are from Tacloban City, Philippines. Here’s a link to their Facebook page so you can read up on them.

Those are our contestants for this battle. Here’s where you come in.

  1. Listen to the two songs.
  2. Decide which song you like the best.
  3. Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
  4. Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:

I’ll announce the winners of this battle next Sunday, August 22, so make sure you cast your vote before then.

The lines are now open. Good luck to The MonaLisa Twins and The REO Brothers!

  1. This song has a special meaning to me as it is one that my oldest daughter chose to have played as I walked her down the aisle when she was married. It also came from my favorite Beatles album that I used to listen to so much when I was in junior high school.

    Both versions are excellent. Between them my choice would be the MonaLisa Twins. Guess I’m partial to the female vocals in this since my oldest daughter has been trying to persuade my 12 year old granddaughter of my youngest daughter to learn it. My granddaughter is becoming a phenomenal singer/musician. Maybe eventually.

    A vote for MonaLisa Twins.

  2. This is tough because I like both for different reasons but…I am going with REO Brothers who harmonize so well and they keyboardist nailed it so well.

  3. I actually prefer the Mona Lisa Twins’ version, because it’s so different from the Beatles – female voices not male, only two voices not four, acoustic guitar accompaniment, sung with a bit more raw feeling and a bit less polish… To my surprise (as a lifelong Beatles fan) I love it! :-)
