BOTB Results: "In My Life"

Whoo-wheee! That wasn't as close as I expected. For our final count, here's what happened, folks:

Beatles: 3 Diehards
Debra, She Who Seeks
Elizabeth Seckman, Author
Mirka Breen

Contender #1, Ed Sheeran: 10
Mary Burris
Stephen T. McCarthy, STMcC Presents 'BATTLE OF THE BANDS'
Sixgun McItchyfinger
Mike Spain
John Holton
Alex J. Cavanaugh, Insecure Writers Support Group
Junie Junebug, Junie Junebugs Righting and Editing
angryparsnip, Two Little Square Black Dogs
The Armchair Squid

Contender #2, Bette Midler: 5
Arlee Bird, Tossing It Out
G Dogg
Birgit, BB Creations
Mike, Billions of Versions of Normal
Cathy Kennedy, Cathy Mews

Ed Sheeran took the crown (the Beatles are not worried, but kudos). Mr. Sheeran, as we say at the Flipside, sing us out:

There's just one thing left to do, peeps:  go check out the other Battles of the Band and see how your vote stack up against the rest of the gang.

I'll see you back here on the 1st - deal? We will battle it out once more.


  1. Yes, I'm a diehard and PROUD OF IT, dammit.

  2. A very, very nice return to 'Battle Of The Bands', DOC MacSIS! And I dig the fact that you stuck with the traditional opening and closing dates of 'BOTB'. And just like that, all is right with the world again. (Well... give or take.)

    I'm already looking forward to what you come up with on the 1st of Rocktober.

  3. Aaargh! I missed it! Just now realized you were back in the BOTB fold and came here today to vote but was too late. :(
    So sorry I missed it Cherdo.
    Are you going to be doing 2 battles each month or just one, like a few of us are doing? I've been doing the 15th of each month but didn't this month because it was too crazy...

    Good to have you back...

    1. Michele, I'm going to do both. You ought to jump on the 1st, too, girl!

  4. Philosophers call it "appeal to authority" which means "important people say it so it must be so." Solo, Ed Sheeran is pretty good. Ringo! I always thought Ringo the neutral diplomat and best at press conferences which were better than the songs!.. recently heard Ringo, back in the day, showed up at Paul's house - a proxy, mind you - and told Paul not to release a solo album circa the same time Let It Be was about to be released. Paul told Ringo to get out of his house. True story. And that's what the press focuses on. I bet they were friends again within a day. Ed Sheeran didn't bring them together... nice to see them come together. And as noted the Sheeran song is pretty good.

    1. There's something I like about each Beatle personality!

  5. I never have really followed the rules...

    1. of the things I love about you, mountaineer!

  6. Oh My Goodness
    Lost another Battle.

    cheers, parsnip and badger

  7. Not bad, but decisive nevertheless. And as is often the case I voted for the artist that didn't win. Maybe I should have voted for the Beatles as well, but I prefer to follow the instructions and play the game as it should be played. The Beatles did the best version.

  8. The MLB World Series 2018 Live will be the championship series of Major League Baseball's 2018 season.
    The 114th edition of the World Series will be played between the American League champion versus the National League champion and will begin on Tuesday,
    October 23. A potential Game 7 is scheduled to be played on October 31.[2] The Series will be televised nationally by Fox. For the second year in a row,
    the World Series will be sponsored by YouTube TV and officially will be known as the 2018 World Series presented by YouTube TV.[3]


Thanks for your personal yada, yada, yada,
Love, Cherdo
