Forums → Popular Media → "OvC" Song Battle # 16 : Immigrant Song (Page 19)
This thread is an idea I had for a long time now and it seems like a radio DJ had it too! Since I heard it being held on the radio, I thought it was finally time to introduce it to the music loving users of ArmorGames! Presenting...
Throughout the history of music, artists have recorded numerous songs for people to enjoy, but sometimes... another artist thinks he/she/they can perform that same song better or think of a different approach/interpretation of it! This can produce a completely different song, sometimes with a big improvement, sometimes it's a complete failure and every now and then... a true (new) gem is made!! =)
This battle thread is all about comparing those songs and the rules of engagement are pretty simple... I post a battle between two songs, one is the original version and one is the cover version. You can vote (once only per battle) for either of the two artists featured in battle, giving them 1 point for your preferenced vote! And an elaborated reasoning is of course required for your vote to be counted in the score roundup, we don't want this thread to be flooded with spam posts after all...
Note this : on several occasions some songs have actually been covered by more than one single artist, therefor battles with more than two artists featured may occur sometimes; the rules will always stay the same though! To clarify once more...
Short list of rules :
1) I will post a new battle ('every week';
2) Only one vote per user, per battle;
3) A reasoning is required to count your vote.
Plain, simple and fun! =)
And if you feel that a certain song needs to be presented in a battle in this thread, please post the battle suggestions on my profile, do NOT post them in this thread as this will only become confusing about which battle is currently featured!
Hope you will like this idea and participate in it! =)
The original by Led Zeppelin will most likely win this battle, and rightly so. Their song is inimitable. Therefore I will give an honorary vote to Demons And Wizards for making not that bad of a job. I still like to listen to their version. Though I'm probably just biased because I like the voice of the singer, especially as the singer of Blind Guardian.
The original is the best one here. None of the others really have the right sound to them, if you know what I mean. So my vote goes to Led Zeppelin.
If I had to choose between the covers, I would choose Ann Wilson's version, because at least it's quite original compared to the other ones. But Led Zep is my favorite band, the original song will always remain the best for me.
Led Zep wins.
Seeing as the vote pool is depleted allmost entirely, I will soon post a new battle. Feel free to vote untill it is posted though! =)
