Hello, Kittens and Dawgs! I went into this month with Battle of the Bands in mind I knew I wanted a motif but not a Christmas theme. In today’s showdown, I won’t ask you to vote on a cover song by two different artists. Instead, I’ve picked two new-to-me songs because this is my birth month (yesterday was my birthday) for you to decide on in December Songs #BoTB Showdown!
Hello, Kittens and dawgs! Yesterday DH and I spent the whole day in the mountains. We ventured to a few of our favorite western North Carolina mountain communities – Bryson City and Dillsboro and on our way home we stopped in Pigeon Forge to see the lights at The Island (picture above is a tiny sample). I will share more pictures either for Skywatch Friday or next week’s edition of Wordless Wednesday or maybe both times. I’ll just keep you guessing so you’ll have to keep a close tab on my site. 😀 Yes, I’m sneaking like that. Now on to why you’re really here and that’s to learn the outcome of My December #BoTB showdown.
In this round, I pitted Josh Groban against Scala & Kolacny Brothers covering Linkin’ Parks My December. The battle tipped heavily to one side and if you’ve followed comments then you know already who the winner is. I preferred Josh Groban’s cover just like nearly everyone else giving him a decisive victory of 11 to 2!
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?
Good morning, kittens & dawgs! It’s November. Election day is 7 days from now. Have you voted? Speaking of which I know some of you voted in my October 15th BoTB while I was on hiatus and I didn’t make it back to share the results.
In the Pink Moon #BoTB showdown, I asked you to pick your favorite artist between Meshell Ndegeocello and Walt Mink. The vote was tight. I went with Mink. I preferred his vocals and uptempo over his rival but in the end, Ndegeocello clinched the victory with only a two point lead.
I thought with the fate of America waiting in the balance on November 8th, I thought today’s BoTB song choice is a perfect fit, the Beatles Revolution (reference only, please don’t vote on the original version).
Contender #1 is an English Pop Supergroup started in 1985 by Genesis founding member, Mike Rutherford.
Contender #2 covers this popular song country-pop style.
Who gets your vote, Mike & The Mechanics or Rascal Flatts?
Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional). Are ya going with
