Compared to most of my Battles of the Bands lately, this one was a squeaker!
The Song: “(There’s) Always Something There To Remind Me” by Burt Bacharach and Hal David
The Contestants: Lou Johnson (1964) and Sandie Shaw (1964)
Lou Johnson: 10
Sandie Shaw: 8
When the first several votes came in for Sandie Shaw, I thought she’d run away with it, because that’s the way it’s gone lately. But Lou Johnson made a strong showing after that, then Sandie finished strong, but not strong enough. So, congratulations to both of them, but especially to Lou, who squeaked by with two more votes.
Our next Battle of the Bands will be on Sunday, November 1. That’s All Saints’ Day in the Catholic Church, so expect something related.
