Best of My Love #BOTB showdown

Hello kittens & dawgs! Last month I paid tribute to the late great former Eagles band member, Glenn Frey. If you missed that, then you’re welcome to check it out, here.

The Eagles were an important part of my musical life beginning in my early teens then following me well into adulthood until the group broke up.

Don Henley, J.D. Souther, and the late Glenn Frey collaborated this Billboard Hot 100 and Easy Listening chart topper in 1975 and perhaps is my most memorable song by the Eagles, Best of My Love.

Don Henley of the Eagles did the lead vocals. This version is for your enjoyment, so please refrain from voting for them.

That being said, I am going with Best of My Love for this round of BoTB. If you’re new, then what this means is I will share two artists doing the same cover song, then it’s up to you tell me which one gets your vote.

My first contender brings a little island flavor to the Eagles #1 hit. Listen to Aswad to see, if his style earns your vote.


Nice job, Asward! I like it for variety, but I wouldn’t say enough to give him my vote. How about you?

Contender #2 is a legend in the music industry. The question is will his unique vocals insure a victory this round? I  give you… Mr. Rod Stewart!


For those having trouble with the video clip, I found a sample of the song on Amazon. I’m using an affiliate link —> The Best Of My Love by Rod Stewart  that you can listen to, if you wish to try to weigh your vote in on.

Everything Rod does, he does well. His rendition is closer to the original verses Asward’s version. There’s no question, Rod’s cover grabs my vote!

Who did you like best? Aswad with his touch of reggae or Stewart with his pop vibe? 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.

Why Can’t We Be Friends #music #AprilA2Z

The end of the A2Z challenge is waning and I was wondering, why can’t we be friends?


Why Can’t We Be Friends?” is a song by the band War. The song has a simple structure, with the phrase “Why can’t we be friends?” being sung four times after each two-line verse amounting to over forty times in under four minutes. It was played in space when NASA beamed it to the linking of Soviet cosmonauts and U.S. astronauts in 1975 for the Apollo–Soyuz Test Project. “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” charted at number six in 1975. Billboard ranked it as the No. 23 song for 1975. ~Info borrowed from Wikipedia.com

Are we friends? If not, then let’s connect now! In my side menu, you’ll find a couple ways of becoming my newest friend and I’ll be happy to return the favor.

What song by War do you remember?

Please, feel free to follow me while I visit a few wonderful bloggers taking part in this wacky crazy A2Z challenge. I’ll see you tomorrow!

Why it is important to get enough #sleep to help with #weightloss & #BOTBresults

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! I am tired this morning, but I not too tired to forget to announce my #BOTBresults.  My last installment of the band show-down was totally lopsided, swinging heavily in favor of the Jamaican reggae duo consisted of Vernon Buckley and Gladstone Grant known as The Maytones!

On a scale from 1-10 (the higher the number, the greater your fondness is), how well do you like reggae?

Who is your favorite reggae artist/band?

Sample a taste of The Maytones Greatest hits while you visit me this morning and don’t forget the next round of BOTB will be on February 1st.

I read an interesting article on four ways your body blocks weight loss. I was aware of each point listed and had a general understanding.
