Doo Wah Diddy Diddy Results for BOTB

As I mentioned earlier, "Doo Wah Diddy Diddy" was first released by the Exciters, but Manfred Mann made it into a hit. Manfred Mann managed with other songs, like "Blinded by the Light" and "The Mighty Quinn," so this was not a fluke but having talent and riding the Zeitgeist.

Well, my recent offering for Battle of the Bands (Groups) ended with a blowout: Manfred Mann was undoubtedly the winner. Here's the results:

Manfred Mann: 14
"Stripes": 2
The Dolly Dots: 0

Thanks all who participated or at least looked in. I liked this song so much! I'll try more Battle of the Band songs in the future. And in the future, look into other BOTB sites:

Hmmm... Who was the other irreverent bloke like me who voted for Bill Murray and 'STRIPES'?

I'm surprised there were more votes for Stripes than the Dolly Dots. At least they were entertaining to watch. But I'm glad I selected the winner. :)

My apologies for missing this battle. I didn't realize you were a participant. Must rectify that for next time.

Poor Dolly Dots...but they were no contender as far as I was concerned up against Manfred Mann. It was fun revisiting that clip from Stripes too.

Well, I don't believe in the wisdom of crowds, even though this time I was part of the crowd.
