I have Uncle Jack to thank for this battle. He suggested this as a song with an “-est” word in it, and when I was looking for the song, I discovered that nearly everyone had done it. This time, I’m going with female artists, and chose two women who rose to fame in the Sixties as the contestants.
“What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?” was written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, with music by Michel Legrand, for the 1969 film The Happy Ending. I featured the song in The Friday Five a week ago Friday as sung by Frank Sinatra, so if you’ve never heard it, you can go over there and listen, or listen to the fine job our two contestants did with it.
CONTESTANT #1: Barbra Streisand
CONTESTANT #2: Dusty Springfield
So, you know the drill: listen to both contestants, decide which one you like better, and let me know who it is in the comments, as well as why it was you chose that one. Remember, there’s no right or wrong answer, we’re just looking for which one you like better. Then, go visit the other blogs that might be doing BotB today and do the same thing with theirs…
