I'm a bit late getting a results post out, but on the other side of that fence is this: I'm not so late that the results are being tacked on to my next Battle of the Bands post. So there is that!
This battle was another one of those close races until it wasn't. It started out with the Hank Jr. and Lois duet going neck and neck with The Tractors and then Hank and the lady slowly picked up just enough steam that they won it. You guys voted 11 for Hank and 7 for The Tractors. My vote went to The Tractors making it 11-8, but that is still a loss for The Tractors.
I actually discovered this song via The Tractors back in 1994 when their debut album came out. I love the entire thing start to finish. Their cover of Settin' The Woods on Fire was just yet another song that I had no idea was a cover until recently. For me, it was a Tractors "original" for many years.
For those of you unfamiliar (or only mildly familiar) with The Tractors, their most notable single was Baby Likes To Rock It. I like that song, but I don't like it best of their material. I don't know if that is a case of overexposure or if I genuinely like their other material better, but it's not my favorite.
Fallin' Apart has always been one of my favorites from that album. I love Everything about this song. The beat. The lyrics.
You've always got a reason to tell me no. Too early. Too late. Too fast. Too slow.
If that one didn't grab you, maybe this one will.
It's true for you and it's true for me. You don't need to be smart to see. You've got to be bigger than yesterday just to keep from getting behind. The little man is getting smaller all of the time.
Did you vote for the winner in this round of Battle of the Bands? Have you heard these songs by The Tractors before? Did either one "light your fire"? Have you ever heard a song that you thought was original to an artist only to find out that it was actually a cover???
