Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
The song is Old Man. The contenders are Neil Young v. Neil Young (Jimmy Fallon).
I've had some very close results of late, and today I have a tie. The results are
Neil Young 13
Jimmy Fallon 13
Neil was ahead by one. I cast my vote for Neil/Jimmy as I intended to do all along, so we have a tie.
But because Neil Young wrote the song and has been a star for so long (twice inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), let's listen to him sing another of his brilliant compositions.
Infinities of love,
Well, shoot. How will I know in my heart of hearts which version is superior?ReplyDelete
Ask your heart.Delete
I vote for Neil Young.ReplyDelete
Too late, buddy. You have to vote by midnight on the 20th.Delete
Great Battle - I wondered how close it would get!ReplyDelete
Never heard "Needle and Damage Done". Thanks for posting it, Janie.
It's poignant. Neil wrote it after he told a member of his band that the guy couldn't go on tour with them because his heroin addiction caused too much trouble. The band member overdosed. Neil says he still feels guilty about it.Delete
I'm glad it's a tie-it is as it should be:)ReplyDelete
It worked out well.Delete
A tie is a good outcome for this one. That was a fun battle. ☺ReplyDelete
Yes, I like the tie.Delete
There is no contest...Neil Young.ReplyDelete
There's no contest now. It's over.Delete
It was a fun battle, I can't imagine a better ending than a tie.ReplyDelete
Wow! That's kind of a surprise. It was an interesting Battle.ReplyDelete

I'm not that surprised. I told my son what I was doing. He said, Oh, I love that Neil Young/Jimmy Fallon video. If my son likes something, then it's almost always a winner.Delete
It was pretty close, so a tie is not unexpected, I guess.ReplyDelete
Such a sad story about this song. I never knew that, either. You are a fount of knowledge, dear lady! :)
I'm a fount of Wikipedia knowledge.Delete
A tie! I guess that's ok. I voted for Jimmy :)ReplyDelete
I voted for Jimmy, too.Delete
