Welcome to My December, Kittens and Dawgs! This is my favorite time of the year. December is my birth month and is the month for my favorite holiday. Not worry, though. I won’t be doing a showdown featuring a Christmas tune. I admit I was tempted but I decided to do something different.
In this first battle of December, I’m using Linkin Park’s My December. Written by band member, Mike Shinoda, while on the road this song captures a guy’s heartache after a fight with his girlfriend and how he wants her back.
The thing I like about this somewhat new-to-me song is the music more than the lyrics.
The first contender is a very well-known artist with awesome smooth vocals with a very calming cover. Please listen to Josh Groban.
The second contender is a new-to-me discovery and their mewsic style covering My December is rather nice and soothing, which almost makes me think of Christmas. Please listen to Scala & Kolacny Brothers.
Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. Who gets your vote, Josh Groban or Scala & Kolacny Brothers? Please tell me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional)! 😉
The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players. I hope you’ll join me tomorrow for a few laughs with Friday Sillies and more Friday fun stuff. I’ll leave you with yet another cover (not included in the showdown) of an unknown artist who closely matches Linkin Park. What do you think?
Have a songtastic day!
