Good day, Kittens and dawgs! I blinked; Christmas was over and the calendar flipped over ushering in a new year and as quick as a sneeze here we are mid way through this brand new month of this brand new year.
What I really want to know is, did you miss me the first go round of BoTB? Well, I missed you! The break was VERY much needed. I’m now ready to get my game on and back in the swing of things.
Dolly Parton wrote and recorded the 1980 hit comedy 9 to 5 theme song, which turned out to be her biggest hits of the decade.
I know you want to, but please refrain from voting for Dolly. The original isn’t part of today’s competition. It serves only as reference and enjoyment.
Here’s a fun fact. Wikipedia says..
While filming the movie, Dolly found she could use her long acrylic fingernails to simulate the sound of a typewriter. She wrote the song on set by clicking her nails together and forming the beat.
Now it’s time punch the clock and get down to business. Meet contender #1 Melinda Schneider & Beccy Cole.
Next, my personal favorite and a gal from right here in Knoxville, Tennessee. Contender # 2, 2015 The Voice runner-up, Miss Emily Ann Roberts!
Which artist does 9 to 5 better, Melinda Schneider & Beccy Cole or Emily Ann Roberts? Please leave your answer in comments; if you have time and want to share what makes your pick the “best” of the two, then I’d love to hear about it.
I want to thank the brain child behind this cool, bi-monthly meme, Fae. I’m looking forward to another year of band showdowns. There’s no time to rest on your laurels! The fun continues with more epic battles underway; I invite you to visit this little shindig hop coördinator, Stephen, who manages a list of amazing repeat bloggers participating.
I’m gonna close the polls at midnight on the 22nd and I’ll report the results on the 25th when I join the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew. Mark your calendar and stop by to see if your pick gets named! Thanks for joining in on the fun. This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with for your entertainment only Home Free covering Dolly’s original.
Have a bandtastic day!
