BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?” (Men’s Division)


As I hinted at when I published the results of my last battle, I’m going to do the same song, “What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?” but this time give you two male artists. Your job will be to select which you like better and leave me a comment, like we always do. Frank Sinatra’s version is more or less the standard, and is not a contestant in this battle, because I felt he might run away with it (as if that hasn’t happened before).

CONTESTANT #1: Michel Legrand Yes, the composer of the song (the Bergmans wrote the lyrics) has done a version of this one.

CONTESTANT #2: Chris Botti featuring Sting Smooth jazz trumpeter Chris Botti does a lot of the standards, and is joined by Gordon Sumner (a/k/a Sting) in his version.

Okay, you know the drill: listen to both, pick a fave, and vote in the comments, THEN go visit some of the others having battles today:
