This week’s mewsic theme is “Songs Starting With the 1st Letter of Your Name”. 

Calling Out Your Name (Down In A Hole album) Kiefer Sutherland.

 

Actor-turned-singer Kiefer Sutherland says this track from his début album is about a highly publicized failed romance from his youth. He tells Rolling Stone: “There’s a moment in everyone’s life when they go from a girl to a woman or a boy to a man, and that transition, at least from my experience, is illustrated through heartbreak.”

He doesn’t name the girl, but Sutherland did have a high-profile engagement to Julia Roberts after the pair met on the set of Flatliners in 1990.

 

Cathy (Down on a Deptford Broadway album) Skinny Lister

 

The second single from Down on Deptford Broadway is a slice of sing-a-long punk ‘n’ roll. Singer and guitarist Dan Heptinstall explained: “‘Cathy’ is an ode to addiction and recklessness. A declaration of desire for someone or something that you know is bad for you, and you’d be wise to steer well clear of. The classic wrestle between head and heart.”

Can We Dance (Meet the Vamps album) The Vamps

 

This pop British band debuted their song in September 2013 and the following month’s sells with 13K more than their competitor looked like The Vamps would peak number 1 on the UK Singles Chart but in the end One Republic (Counting Stars – another “C” song) nudged them out of the spot and recorded as the closest chart battle in 2013 with only 1,150 sells separating the two songs.

Quick, what “C” song titles come to mind?

I invite you to hit the dance floor with XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette , and little ole me. 😉



 

This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with more “C” Song Titles.

Boston cover song Peace of Mind #BOTB showdown

Good-day, kittens and dawgs! July 2016 is history…well almost history. The dog days of summer continue with a new month and we’re not out of the woods yet . Nothing diverts your attention like music and we need our mind off the heart. It’s not only the start of a new month, but it’s time for another edition of Battle of the Bands.

I’m using another song penned by American song writer in his basement and Boston band founder, Tom Scholz. Wikipedia says Peace of Mind is about the people Scholz worked with at Polaroid Corporation. The song peaked 38 on the Billboard Top 100 charts in 1977.

A Canadian band, Moxy Fruvous covered Boston’s classic hit, but changed the lyrics, which I didn’t care much for and then Stryper recorded it in 2009 with Tom Schloz playing guitar that I liked quite a bit; but that being said I felt this band might be an instant winner.

In this competition (Scholz didn’t care about competition), but it’s BoTB baby and I’m sharing two unknowns (to me) covering this song. First up is the three-piece band out of south eastern Pennsylvania who are known for their classic to modern rock, metal, punk, country, pop, and even some original stuff. I present to you, Half Past Seven!

 

 

Next is a four member metal/rock group from Portland, Oregon called, Stonecreep.

 

 

Do you know which band you like the best? Are you going with Half Past Seven or Stonecreep? Please cast your vote in comments and if you want, tell me why you picked your artist.

I’ll share my pick next week along with the results, so be sure to come back to see who wins this round of BoTB. Meanwhile, the fun continues with more epic battles underway below.

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.

mewsic moves me Monday musicXmasDolly asked me to co-host this week to cover for Naila Moon whose still enjoying vacation time. So, you’re invited to link and join the 4M crew on the dance floor!

 

 




While looking for cover artists performing Boston’s classic hit I found a few songs bearing the same title by mostly new-to-me artists that I liked and wanted to share it with you.

 

 

 

 

Thanks for joining in on the fun, you leave me with peace of mind. This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with have a bandtastic day and please boogie back over for Not-so-Wordless Wednesday!
