BOTB Results: The Handiest of "Handyman"

Image result for results are in

Well, well, well...wasn't this a sweet surprise? Maybe not for you, but for ME!

Though dear, sweet baby James held the top spot for his rendition of "Handyman" on the charts, dat ain't how we play it on the Flipside (where everyone gets a shot at internet stardom...for a brief and shining moment).

In the battle of Del Shannon, rock & roll pioneer, versus Don Campbell, reggae-in' up the classics, the votes were as follows:

 DEL SHANNON: 5 LEGALLY BINDING VOTES! 
Mike
John
angryparsnip
Arlee
Birgit

 DON CAMPBELL: 9 HANGIN' CHAD FREE, 
 ELECTRONIC CONFIRMATIONS! 
Ale
Janet
Debra
Stephen
Mary B
Cathy
Debbie D.
aisasami
Mike

And the winner is:

Okay, I confess, I just like this album cover. "Handyman" actually appears on his Any Day Now album, released in 2009, for those interested. Go for it!  Mr. Campbell did several other interesting covers that I need to investigate, according to the Wiki gods. Perhaps we will see him again!

To the victor! Sing us out, Don!


In the words of Peggy Lee: "Is that all there is?" 

Of course, not! Right now, don't wait another second, skedaddle over to these fine blogs to check out their results. Can you pick a winner? Let's find out...

TOSSING IT OUT

  4. Well, well, well--sorry Del. Still I'm standing behind the rock legend and will defend my vote. Your point spread was similar to mine except better.

  5. Pretty decent Battle, vote margin-wise, DOC CHERDO.

    You've done this before, huh? This warn't yer first rodeo, wuz it?

    Hey, see ya again March 1st-ish.
    I'm trying to decide what to do in my next Battle. And since Saint Paddy's Day is next month, I've thought that maybe you and I should team up to do Irish singers / musicians and tell some of the old wild 'n' crazy 'n' embarrassin' drinking stories from our rebellious youts. (You got any? ;^) If not, I'll rent you one of mine at a special low "Green Beer" rate of only $1.99 per day. Because that's just the kinda friend and brudder I yam!)

    1. If you're game, I'm game. But I suspect it will be more of a "good cop, bad cop" scenario. I'm not sure I have a GREAT story, but I have a short, funny one! I'll need to put the call out to my old buddy, Cindy W., to vouch for the truth of it. The tale belongs in a comedy, for sure.

      Consider it a done deal, brudder.
