October song #BOTB showdown

Did you notice the calendar flipped over again, kittens and dawgs? I will not have a Saturday Songsuasion edition but I will next week. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any mewsic today. No, no, no. It’s October 1st which means, it’s time for a new BoTB. That being said, in this first battle, I’m going against the grain. Instead of using two artists covering the same song I’m using a song title of two songs that has different lyrics and artists.  It’s up to you to vote on  your favorite song in October song #BoTB showdown!

Nominated for Best Alternative Music Album in 2011, self-titled Broken Bells debuted album (US peak position 2), at the 53rd Grammy Award. One of the singles to release from this album is today’s song title battle, October. I don’t think it charted but I really dig the sound. Give a listen to song #1!

 

Broken Bells “October” song lyrics

One of this American rock band’s earliest recordings and outtakes from 1998 is today’s song title, October, written by Evanescence band members: Amy Lee, Ben Moody, and Will Boyd. The song has a bit of controversy with fans who seem to think it has a “gospel” reference with the line, “I fall into your abounding grace” even though there is no mention of Jesus Christ or Lord in the song. The rumor is, although not confirmed the song was written Amy’s younger sister who died. Knowing these things about this song sort of helps me to not think of it as just a “dark” song. Please listen to song #2!

Evanescence “October” song lyrics

It’s interesting, these songs are not about the month October or autumn or the change of seasons and yet they are nice songs in their own right. 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 October song you like best and why (optional).

Who gets your vote, Broken Bells or Evanescence?

The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit, Stephen (at the top of the list), if you’d like to know how this works and/or ask how to join all this madness fun!

Tell your friends to come by to get in on the action. The more the merrier!?

I am taking a blog hiatus beginning October 1st -17th but I do have my routine weekly posts scheduled. I will link with a few regulars, do return visits, and respond to comments. It’ll be sorta like I’m not away from Blogosphere.

Thanks for joining the fun. I’ll leave you with one last “October” song (not included in battle) to feature this week’s Saturday Songsuasion artist and for your enjoyment. This is Curious as a Cathy signing off, have a bandtastic day and please boogie back over for Not-so-Wordless Wednesday! ?

Electric Hippo #music

Good morning, kittens & dawgs this morning’s ReverbNation pick is Electric Hippo!

The artists’ bio reads:

Phiilo (formerly Electric Hippo) ties together the power of EDM with the rhythm and fluidity of funk, jazz, rock, and soul. Live instruments—primarily Nick’s distinct and technical style of electric guitar—are incorporated alongside experiments in digital sound production and Jonny’s broad vocal range. These components, while designed individually with high attention to detail, combine to create what is best described as stylistic electronic compositions.

After meeting in Boulder, Colorado, Nick and Jonny capitalized on a unique musical chemistry and immediately started jamming, writing what would become the first few Electric Hippo singles (including “Closer,” which layers silky ambience, RnB vocals, and a punchy arena synth). The song-writing process reflects each member’s forte: Nick, as instrumentalist, producer, and sound engineer, creates the musical composition and backbone, while Jonny writes and records vocal melodies. Unafraid to experiment, and dedicated to bringing listeners new sounds, Electric Hippo is poised to fill a crucial void in the ever-changing landscape of modern electronic music.

Bringing to you, hopefully, a new-to-you discovery, I give you Phiilo!

 

Follow Electric Hippo on one or all of these social media connections!

Juliana Daily #music

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! Meet native New Yorker turned Tennessee gal, Juliana!

juliana-richer-daily-86She describes herself as a “slow-walker, fast-talker, coffee-fiend, music-machine.” lol I can sort related to 3 out of 4 of these characteristics. Halfway through college, Juliana actively pursued songwriting while learning to play the guitar. Soon she shared her music at open mic nights; a friend suggested posting some her early video online that enthusiastically generated a 50,000 subscriber fan base and over 11 million views. That’s pretty amazing!

In February 2014, she released her first full-length album.  I invite you to listen to these 11 cuts found on Slow Love.

 

You can follow Juliana at these social media connections!
