BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “Taking A Chance On Love”

Arlee did a battle on this song all the way back in September 2018, and I found several more-current performances, including the two I’m going to feature today.

Sarah Edmonds

Renee Olstead

You know the drill…

  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 count the votes next Tuesday, March 22 at 12:00 noon Eastern time and announce the winner, so be sure and cast your vote by then.

The lines are now open. Good luck to Sarah and Renee!

    I was really surprised that Johnny Cash lost in your last Battle. My personal bemusement regarding Johnny’s popularity notwithstanding, I thought for sure he would win in a Battle like that. BOTB will always remain a mystery to me.

    I felt both of these renditions were really nice, but I preferred the more sprightly version by Sarah Edmonds.

  2. John,

    This is an easy peasy one for me, I’m giving my vote to Renee Olstead Her vocals are soft and pleasing to my ears. No mid-month battle going at my place but I’ll have one up for the 1st, though. Have a bandtastic day, my friend!

  3. Liked both. My vote goes to Sarah Edmonds. Her version takes me way back to the “swing” era. Nice to hear that sound again.

  4. This is definitely a classic tune so no surprise to find many versions. I’d forgotten that I had done this song in a past Battle, but we’ve done so many it’s not much of a surprise to forget a few of them.

    Both of your picks are solid interpretations, but I did like the brighter swing of Sarah Edmonds. Give my vote to her version.

    I’ve put up a Battle as well so I hope you’ll stop by to vote.
