Given the decisive victory enjoyed by Ruby & The Romantics the last time out, I thought this week we’d put a couple of covers of their most famous song, “Our Day Will Come,” up against each other and see which one you like best.
Amy Winehouse I’m generally not a fan of 21st Century music, so I was surprised that I enjoy the late Ms. Winehouse’s voice on a number of songs, including this one. She recorded this for her 2011 album Lioness: Hidden Treasures and released it as a single that year. It didn’t chart in the US and only reached #29 in the UK.
Brenda Lee On the other hand, anyone who’s been reading this blog for any length of time knows much I love Miss Dynamite. Brenda Lee recorded this on her 1963 album Let Me Sing.
So, please listen to these two fine performances of the song, decide which you like better, and vote for it in the comments below. If you feel like it, you can even tell me why. Then, please hie thee over to Stephen’s BotB blog, vote in his battle, then look in the right-hand column, where he has a list of all the known participants in Battle of the Bands and check out their battles. I’ll announce the winner of this battle next Thursday, March 22, so be sure and get your vote in by then.
The lines are now open. Best of luck to Amy and Brenda!
