BOTB Results: "If I Were a Carpenter"

Oh, cats and kittens, this wasn't even close! Our old pal, Bobby Darin, delivered the goods on "If I Were a Carpenter." 



The voting went like this:


Bobby Darin: 
Debra
Alex
STMcK
Arlee
Cathy
Mike Spain
Chris
Mary
aisasami

The Four Tops:
Mike
John

Bob Seger:
Debbie
Holli
G Dogg


It am what it am, people! All these musicians gave great performances of this classic tune, but I would have to put my moniker under Bobby Darin, too. Such a sweet, heartfelt delivery, with a great arrangement. Any trace of his hipster cool persona would have ruined this one, but he kept that in check. Save it for "Mack the Knife", Bobby.  I love it!

To the victor! Sing us out, Bobby baby:




Now, what about my peeps? Check out the Battle results! Join us back here on February 1 for another battle. Thanks!

    >>... "Nailed It"

    Ha! Right, right. (I see what you did there.)

    Bobby is hard to beat, period. The guy was really quite talented, and one of only a few classic "crooners" whom I dig a great deal. Heck, I even own me some Bobby Darin CDs, and I'm supposed to be the guy what don't dig crooning.

    >>... "STMcK"

    :-D What's that stand for? Stephen T. McKarthy? Ha!-Ha!

    1. That was a mental slip...my maiden name is a McK configuration. Once you write that for a couple of decades, it's a hard habit to break!

  2. Apparently I'll be voting for last place this year. So I'll be counting on you to come up with some good last place finishers.

  4. I'm not surprised at the result and really liked Bobby Darin's version too. But, Bob Seger! ☺ 1
