BATTLE (Royale): So Much In Love -VS- (Ue o Muite Aruko) Sukiyaki
Alright, I’ve been cruising for wedding music all weekend and WHOA – it spawned the bloodiest battle yet. Same songs – 3 ways, 3 languages, 3 decades. No shame voting straight-ticket but at least give them a listen. 1960s Starting with the originals. 1980s I didn’t know these versions existed until yesterday, but wish I […]
BATTLE: Bootsy Collins – I’d Rather Be With You -VS- Hall & Oates – Sara Smile
All right all you bicentennial babies, you weren’t the only things born in 1976. Today’s battle goes deep, when making albums wasn’t easy.
Like nothing you’ve heard on speakerfeature before (and sample free), Spooky has a loose groove with vintage instrumentation and effects. Minimal vocals set you up for a tom-banging chorus.[Audio clip: view full post to listen] You can download the MP3 or go to the Listen section for additional formats.

BATTLE: Mariah Carey – Always be my Baby -VS- Nelly Furtado – Turn off the Light
This one might be a run away but I still think these songs match up well. Mariah has staying power but Nelly is no slouch either.
ORIGINAL: Gotta Go
A relaxing track, Gotta Go centers around a guitar hook. Plenty of large-room reverb keeps this song airy and light. [Audio clip: view full post to listen] You can download the MP3 or go to the Listen section for additional formats.
BATTLE: State of the Art of Noise
Everyone has heard Somebody That I Used To Know but if you dig a little deeper into Making Mirrors Gotye has some laid back jams you don’t expect. I couldn’t find a definite answer – but it’s hard to imagine the title is a coincidence.
A true commercial offering – Autobahn is 30 seconds of ear grabbing atmosphere that is sure to make your product (a car maybe?) stand out! [Audio clip: view full post to listen]Download links and additional formats in the Commercial section. Photo Credit
