Battle of the Bands: Keith Urban wins

 Keith Urban won my Battle of the Bands contest against Lisa Loeb. Even with the help of a tasty guitar solo by Dweezil Zappa the final score was 12-1.  I was going for contrast and I think I achieved that with the artists I selected. Lisa Loeb came across with a weak voice that to some sounded amateurish so in someway Loeb beat herself. In the end the voters voted to "Keep on Loving You" Keith Urban as the cover came from REO Speedwagon's catalog.




The Battles of the Bands will continue in October, which is often referred to as Rocktober so stay tuned for more battles starting October 1st. In the meantime we will celbrate KEith Urban's victory with more Keith Urban tunes.

It has been "A Long Hot Summer"...


"Sweet Thing"..


I'll end with his latest single "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16"


See you soon with a new post!

Thanks John! Your vote counted even if it just stopped a shutout!

Oh, wow... 12-1, eh? Poor Lisa. I do like her, actually... It's just like you said, though. In contrast, she couldn't cut it. Good battle, Mike!

Wow! Not to worry - Lisa will be back. Thanks for sharing these videos. I hadn't heard the new song - loved it! See you next time, Mike.

Not a surprise with this one. Poor Lisa.

I finally won one! ☺ Lisa really didn't cut it and Keith is always a great performer.

I'm so ashamed of myself for helping Keith Urban win :P

Mmmmmm... Well, "contrast" is great - I go for that often, myself - but there's also such a thing as "competitive contrast". This wasn't that.

See ya on OCT. 1st, MIKE.

Wow, I wasn't expecting a shut-out. I thought it would be closer.
Guess everyone had the same thoughts as me.

Wasn't quite a shutout, they got one vote.
