Battle of the Bands Result: Karen Carpenter runs away with it!

"Desperado" was the song and Karen Carpenter left Miranda Lambert and Linda Ronstadt desperate for votes.

Everyone got votes, Miranda had one and Linda had two but Karen collected 10 and was far and away the winner.

I know if I would have put Diana Krall out there she would have got a vote..

See I do requests.

Well Let's celebrate with Karen Carpenter

"We've Only Just Begun"


Thanks and I will have a new battle on the 15th!

I am not surprised. Karen sounded so good singing this. I thought I'd vote for Linda, but then when I listened to Karen's version I was smitten.

Glad you didn't include Dianna. Don't care for her much and her version of this great song did nothing to change my mind.

I don't think I voted. Too busy worrying and not feeling well. I loved Karen Carpenter, so I probably would have voted for her. I have several of The Carpenters albums, purchased during my long-ago childhood. I love Linda Ronstadt, too, though. For some reason, I thought it was Rondstandt. I'm an idiot.

Karen Carpenter couldn't carry Ronstadt's mike stand. Dreadful and schmaltzy never understood Carpenter's appeal - her voice is like ice. Linda's voice is warm and beautiful. Your mileage may vary.

I will comment in just a minute. I need to listen to a song above first.
Okay back. Shucks, Karen wasn't my pick, but I'm okay she won. This was a battle I truly didn't mind who won (between Karen and Linda).
Thanks for the inclusion of the Krall rendition. Even though FAE doesn't care for my girl.
