BOTB Results: The Battle of the Unknowns becomes KNOWN!


Well, Paul McCrane pulled it off and beat newcomer and close-singer, RVQ. Before the bragging starts, it was oooohhhh sooooo close: 


Paul McCrane: 13
RVQ: 11


Paul didn't have much of a singing career but I way grinning to myself as I saw that he had re-emerged with this song on an episdoe of Harry's Law (that's Harry, not hairy...obviously): 


Actually, it even looks like the same guitar. I desparately wanted to find a full video of the older Paul, but no luck. If you want to see the "partial" version, it's here.

To the victors go the spoils, so...sing us out, Paul McCrane!:




Remember, our battles take place twice a month: on the 1st and 15th.  The results come six days later: on the 7th and 21st. 

Check out our other great participants and pals!

  1. Great Battle, DOC!

    Yours was as good as mine was bad.
    Looking at my results, you'd think I'd never done BOTB before. Ouch!

    1. Funniest comment ever, ha ha. You're part of the after-voter movement.

  7. What about that. Nice outcome, but I'm glad Paul one. His is kind of a strange story, to have a song end up in such a high profile movie and then basically disappear into obscurity. It happens.

    My results will be posted tomorrow (Mon. May 23rd).

    1. Oh, maybe not obscurity. After checking the IMDB site I see that he has had a busy career since that appearance in Fame. I guess music wasn't what he was shooting for all that much.

    2. Apparently, music was just an extra skill needed to land a part in Fame.

  8. That was a great battle. I love battles between unknowns. It helps to keep any biases away. Or at least I think so. Looking forward to the next one!

    1. Thank, guys! If I had more time (and I foresee that in the future), I'd like to dig out more unknowns. :-)

  9. Lost again! Oh well, at least it was close.

    1. The beauty is that we don't lose anything, yippee! Thanks, Debbie!

  10. Hair/no hair: I noted lately that those with the greatest mops in high school are the bald ones later. So long as they keep singing...

    1. My Hubzam is a prime example of that, too. Hair...not singing...I'm keeping him, regardless. :-)

  11. This was a very good battle and a close one! My hubby has a beautiful head of hair...that he decides to shave down to the nubs and he ends up looking like prisoner 2557

    1. One year, we were going to the beach and I thought Gonzo would look okay if I just cut all his hair short. He really did look like a convict and I had even gotten him a black and white striped shirt - before the haircut, of course...

  12. Close one, Cherdo. I think I actually chose the winner this time.

    Not sure what this means for the future...

  13. I never get the full effect of BOB because I am always in a place where I can't play the clips. I have to just imagine the song playing in my head.

    1. I can always hear the clips but stuck with a phone AND THAT JUST DRIVES ME NUTS when I'm trying to type out a full post. :-/

  14. Quite an interesting battle. Something I think we should see more of in the BOTB.
