BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “Afterglow” Results

In my most recent battle, between Genesis’s “Afterglow” and INXS’s “Afterglow,” the voting went back and forth between the two songs, and ended up in a tie.


Genesis: 7

Several of you said that you didn’t care for either song, but voted for the one you hated the least. I appreciate that. Anyway, congratulations to both INXS and Genesis on a job well done.

Our next battle will be next Tuesday, October 15, so be sure and join us then!


Continuing with my “same name, different songs” theme, I picked a couple of songs that I had never heard before, which makes them perfect contestants. And here they are…


From their 2005 album Switch.


From their 1976 album Wind & Wuthering.

Your Turn!

I think you know what to do by now, but if you haven’t voted in one of these before, here are the instructions:

  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 winner next Tuesday, October 8, so please be sure and get your vote to me by then. As a reminder, You don’t need to have a battle of your own to vote.

The lines are now open. Good luck to INXS and Genesis!
