in it and let's get down to business.
It's time for us to announce the winner
of Shady's latest Version Sacrifice,
titled How Sarah Got Her Groove Back.
The incumbent, English songbird Sarah
Collins, ran unopposed, performing
covers of two soulful recordings
originally made by U.S. artists.
by Ann Peebles and "Too Busy Thinking
About My Baby" by Marvin Gaye.
Sarah Collins cover they enjoyed more.
As you know, the rules state that
a winner cannot be declared until
Shady weighs in. Shady left the
following message for me to read:
In 2015 I discovered many exciting new artists including YouTube sensation Sarah Collins, the English mother who records herself at home singing brilliant covers of U.S. originals, most of them in the categories of R&B, Northern Soul, Motown and Memphis Soul. The Marvin Gaye single "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" was a major memory maker from my youth and Sarah did an excellent job of covering it. However, I am even more fond of Ann Peebles' Memphis soul and her signature song "I Can't Stand the Rain" which cracked the top 40. Sarah Collins absolutely nailed her performance of "Rain," delivering a spot on imitation of Ann Peebles's earthy singing style. I can't stand having to choose between these two terrific performances but, when all was sung and done, I gave my vote to Sarah's cover of "I Can't Stand the Rain." Brian?... Stewie?...
added to the count and we can now name
the winner. I haven't been this excited
since the time I listened to Andy Kaufman
read every word of The Great Gatsby.
"I Can't Stand the Rain" - 12
"Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" - 8
"The Homecoming Queen's Got A Gun" - 1
