Voting has ended. If you saw the results earlier, please note that results have now been UPDATED to reflect a few votes that were found lurking in the comment spam filter.

  2. Thrasher Brothers – 1 vote
  3. Lynda Randle – 1 vote
  4. Kingdom Heirs – 1 votes

Please note: Because this series of surveys is focusing on “cover” and “remake” songs, the version of “One Day At A Time” that was popularized by Cristy Lane is not included for consideration.

In the audio file attached to this post, you will hear five segments from recordings of “One Day At A Time.” Select your favorite and respond with a comment to cast your vote. Valid responses are 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. You may select only one version as your favorite. Vote only once. This poll will close on Wednesday, July 8.

When the survey is all over later this year, there will be a nice little surprise for our readers courtesy of our good friends at b.creative. If you’re not already familiar with b.creative, check out some of the projects this company has worked on in the past by clicking HERE.

    #1–nice tempo and harmony.

    All were okay. My least liked was #5, simply because the lead did not sing the great melody that this song has. My next least-liked was #3.

    The Thrasher Brothers version is my favorite, though Karen Peck & New River was a great remake, with a different arrangement and feel to it. One of my favorite cuts of “ODAAT” by Gordon Mote was not an option. Solid and soulful. Do you want to hear my recording of it (1990)? LOL, but seriously recorded years ago for a special lady, and my wife and I sang it at her funeral (106 years old, a lot of days at a time).

      I considered including the Gordon Mote arrangement, but I already had one that’s somewhat similar to it on hand. I figured one departure from the melody most people are familiar with was enough for a survey like this.
