Good-morning, kittens and dawgs! I’m back to the world of blogging once again. I’d like to say I fixed the issues with my site, but I did not. This will take more time than I planned. I reckon I will whittle the post repairs down little by little until the job is complete. *sigh* So, what happened while I was away? The calendar flipped over again. It’s not only a brand new month, but it’s time for a battle of the bands spinoff.
In a few days, the USA will celebrate her 240th birthday. It’s time to get this party on the road! This American girl not Irish-American, `but 100% red, white, and blue American girl is featuring a song that has nothing to do with patriotism, but is just an excellent summer song. I’m using Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers 1976 classic American Girl. You’re welcome to enjoy the original, but remember do not vote on it.
Fun factoids: Did you know American Girl did not chart in the US until its second re-release in 1994? However, it did hit the charts in the UK in 1977 peaking at #40. Another tidbit, Rolling Stone ranked this song 76 on “The 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time” list in 2008.
Contender #1 is the English rock band, Def Leppard. Heavy metal is not my forte, but now and then I get a surprise.
Contender #2 is country star Taylor Swift. This young gal’s personality shines through her music.
Both artists did a great job covering, American Girl. This is a hard choice for me. How about for you? Do you know which singer/band you like best? If not, listen again and cast your vote below.
I will share the results of this competition a week from today, as well tell you who got my vote. Mark your calendar and stop by to see if your pick gets named the winner.
The fun continues with more epic battles underway; I invite you to visit, Stephen, who manages the ever-growing list of BoTB players.
I’m was asked to help co-host Monday’s Music Moves Me this month, so I hope you’ll stop by to dance with me and the rest of the 4M gang. Thanks for joining in on the fun today. This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with have a bandtastic day and funtastic weekend and a safe 4th of July! 😉
