I've been a bit swamped and didn't have a good idea for this round of BoTB. So, I sent an email to my CP, Bryan, over at A Beer For The Shower, and asked him if he had any ideas for a good BoTB match-up.
He sent me back this:
Since I was THAT DESPERATE, I laughed and said, "Yes, bring it on."
So, he sent me back the links to two covers of the Bruce Springsteen song I'm On Fire. I hadn't heard either of the covers, so this was a delicious surprise. Plus, you got some relief from my taste in music and get Bryan's instead. A win/win, right?
I can say with all honesty that I know nothing about either of these covers. I'm not even going to look them up on Wikipedia, because this is really just about listening to the music and deciding what you like best. So, let's just do that.
Just a reminder: video presentations are not part of the voting in this battle. It is solely about the music.
Here is the link to the Springsteen original (which is NOT an option in the voting): The Original.
Okay, the first cover is by the band Du Tonc:
The second cover is by Crozet:
Please vote for the version of this song you prefer. If you want to get into the Ins and Outs of why you like one better than the other... I LOVE long comments!
