Four Seasons #BOTB showdown

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Far Away Series is the brain child behind today’s little meme I happily am apart of and with a little help from STMcCP  (details on site) together they put together a bi-monthly hop that we know as the…..

boblogo

The change in seasons will soon be upon us. With the change from summer to fall, one song comes to mind above all others… Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

I developed an appreciation for classical music when I was pregnant eons ago, but my heart really belongs to rock n’ roll. So, that being said, let’s have a little fun.

Classical music is beautifully relaxing, but I wanted a contemporary sound for this showdown, so I found two known artists to do just that!

The first contenders started in a piano shop in southern Utah to market pianos in an unconventional way. Do you care to guess the name of the shop? Why, its called The Piano Guys.

The Piano Guys music videos are incredibly captivating, so if you’re a person who’s easily swayed by what you see and not what you hear, then I first invite you to listen with your eyes closed. This will put things on even ground with their competitor. Listen to their meshed classical version mixed with the Bourne movie theme music.

 

The next contender video isn’t dramatic like the first. This is why I ask that you shut your eyes, but without the theatrics of The Piano Guys, this artist has set the standards in the classics and crossover scene, since 2007. Let’s give it for David Garrett!

 

 

Both bands totally blow my mind! I’m not sure how I’m going to go on this one. Who gets your vote? Name your band of choice in comments and tell us why you like your choice the best in comments. There is no wrong way to vote, except a no vote. Did you pick The Piano Guys or David Garrett? The decision is all yours!

Alrighty, the fun isn’t over. I invite you to check out more amazing battles taking place right now!

The Angels Knew #music & #BOTB results

It’s Christmas time, kittens & dawgs! For the entire month of December XmasDolly, and her elves…JAmericanSpice, Stacy Uncorked, Everyday Life, & little ole me are having a jingling good time spreading the cheer with non-stop Christmas music.

I decided to go with a theme within a theme this Christmas season. Last week, we listened to O Little Town of Bethlehem. Incidentally, it should be no surprise to announce Sarah McLachlan won the that #BOTB installment. Oops lost my thought process there for a second. We know about Bethlehem, how about the heavenly host? Did you know before man was aware of the good news that The Angels Knew long ago the story that would come to pass on that cold December night? Listen…

When I think St. Patty’s day, I do think of leprechauns, 4-leaf clovers, and a pot of gold. I also think of rainbows and what lies on the other side ~ one’s dreams or possibilities of what tomorrow will bring.

I decided to make freebie-style week about rainbows and so I’m sharing with you four covers of Judy Garland’s classic “Over the Rainbow”.
