Well, that was a close one! If you were in on the voting, thanks so much. But nothing can knock Sheryl Crow and Sting off of their perch. It might have helped if I had remembered to say "don't vote for the original, just the contenders." This is an example of what one might call "rusty blogger syndrome."
If you've followed past Battles, you already know I'm a sucker for a slow, melancholy tune and this was in that genre. Lyrics are incredibly important to my enjoyment of music and if I can't connect to the lyrics on some level, there's zero chance that I'll put it on my personal hit list.
Basically, you could do my biography with a list of songs and years. The little details just mess up the story. Bam. 'Nuff said.
To the victors! Sing us out, Sheryl and Sting:
