Broccoli For Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles And Miles … Oh Yeah!

7-Day results of the competition between Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Des’ree and Me First & The Gimme Gimmes covering “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers ended in a tie.

However, THERE ARE NO TIES ON COVER ME IMPRESSED!

Hence, a 3-Day runoff to settle the issue. If the runoff should also end in a tie then I’ll be forced to contract a maiming of all musicians concerned (i.e. Bill Withers, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Des’ree and Me First & The Gimme Gimmes) and at least one individual totally unrelated to the proceedings (probably Billy Joel), which may seem a bit harsh and arbitrary but, hell, something will have to be done …

The Original

“Ain’t No Sunshine” is ranked 285th on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The song won the Grammy for Best R&B Song in 1972.

Bill Withers:

Beautiful, beautiful song and if you don’t think so then ya better check your hearing …

Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Des’ree:

Me First & The Gimme Gimmes:

Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. Only one cover tune will live to play another day and it is your solemn responsibility to decide which one prevails. So tell me … Which Side Are You On?!!?

Also, keep in mind that if you should spontaneously self-actualize while playing a cover then you could – and probably should – nominate it for Top 10 (i.e. “Impeccable”) consideration.
