Oct 21st. Results? No more battles like this!

I don't know what I was thinking when I posted this battle - in fact I might have been asleep. Yeah, that sounds good.  At least, go back to using two versions of the same song ('nuff said)  

I voted for 'Be Prepared' because I really preferred the music. I was also in the great minority as well. Here are the voting results:

Oogie Boogie - 13 votes
Be Prepared - 5 votes

Hopefully, November will hold a promise of excitement on here (smile). 

A special thank you to everyone for your comments and votes!

I'll play the winner again - take it away, Oogie! 


    Actually, that's not so bad at all!
    Seriously! Your winner won by only ONE MORE VOTE than my winner won by, and I was pretty pleased with my outcome.

    I honestly posted by Battle thinking Abelkain would probably only get 4, or at most 5, votes. But he got 8. And considering what a weird song I was using (almost hard to believe ANYONE ever covered it) I feel my Battle was really a winner.

    And with yours, I thought it was good! It was a good concept and you chose two good competitors. I'm really surprised that it wasn't closer.

    Some of it might have been because 'OOGIE BOOGIE' was more Halloweenish, and 'BE PREPARED' has all that Nazi imagery that turns people off. But, truly, I thought that for a contest using two disturbing songs from animated movies, they probably couldn't have been chosen better.

    It was, in my (NEVER) humble opinion, a very good match-up that I thought would wind up much closer than it did. I'm supposed to be (according to a few fools, anyway) the Master BOTBer. And yet I could easily see myself using this same match-up that you did.

    It's only in hindsight that we can look and say: "Well, maybe I shouldn't have matched up these two songs for Reason A, B, and C." But until the results are in, it's IMPOSSIBLE to foresee Reasons A, B, and C.

    Plus, my BOTB was only a 1-vote margin of victory closer than yours was. And I am content with my outcome. In my last BOTB, I used two totally different songs and the winner won by only 1 vote. So it's definitely NOT a "they must be the exact same song" thang.

  2. Sorry I missed the voting due to vacation. Hey, at least yours didn't end in a tie like mine.

  3. I thought it was a pretty interesting BOTB approach. You should have listened to my vote so you could have joined me and the majority. Besides, it's Halloween--it was only right for Nightmare to win this one.

  4. Sometimes we come up with a 'new' concept and it's a winner, sometimes not so much!

  5. Hey, it was definitely a different approach. And different works! And my choice won. Yay! :)
