July 15th, I asked all of my kittens and dawgs to vote in More Than A Feeling BoTB showdown. This isn’t an exclusive poll for only BoTBers, it’s meant for anyone to weigh in and I hope you got a chance to have your say so.
I pitted two new-to-me contenders against each other in this round. It was No Mercy vs Hit The Lights. I must admit it was a tough choice for me between these bands. No Mercy is a near copy cat of Boston, except with a more disco vibe. I don’t like punk rock generally. Everything I’ve ever heard resembled screaming and banging, but Hit The Lights didn’t sound like this. The lyrics and music were a bit faster than No Mercy’s. My preferred music habits tell me to go with what I like best, but Hit The Lights’ zippy version mimicked Boston’s style not losing the original’s identity. Who do I go with?
Ok, I must stay true to myself. I’m giving my vote to my first choice and dominator this battle with a sweeping victory of 15 to 2, No Mercy!
Congratulations and here’s another song by the winner!
Don’t fret, if you missed out on the vote. You’ll get another chance to play along at the first of the month. That being said it’s now time to hit the dance floor with the 4M chicks! This week’s theme is freebie choice! I’m sharing a new-to-me artist, I stumbled upon recently. Let’s give a round of applauds for Laura Veirs!
Ms. Veirs is an American folk singer/songwriter who lives in Portland, Oregon. I hope you enjoyed this sample. You can learn more about her by visiting her website, or following her on Facebook or Twitter.
I appreciated the chance to step in for Naila Moon this month while on vacation. It was a pleasure to co-host with the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew. This is one super bunch of gals who can call on me anytime. Thanks, my friends you rock! I invite you to join the ladies and myself by adding your music post to the linky party and boogie with the gang!
