Oh the disharmony! Much like Harlan County there are no neutrals here. It is your solemn responsibility to decide which cover song prevails. In other words … Which Side Are You On?!!?

    Wow! I like them all! but think I would never tire of Becca’s haunting voice…

    You know it just hit me why I’m having such a hard time selecting a winner in nearly every post. It probably has something to do with me picking the three finalists to begin with. Which sadly suggests this daily agony is not likely to cease. Oh the humanity! But worry not. Like Gloria Gayner I Will Survive! Just one more cross to bear …

    Anyway, I had a really hard time with this group. All three are great. I ended up selecting Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra on the basis that I’d probably have the most fun seeing them live. Hey, give me a brake, I needed some basis so I could get on with my day! Sheesh, everyone’s a critic!

    Oy gevalt! Such choices! I LOVED Mo’ Horizon’s version. Really well done. But at the end of the day, Becca Krueger’s voice won me over. Bowled me over is more like it. Sheesh. What a set of chops.
