This music blogging event was first introduced by our friends and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you":
Our battles take place twice a month: on the 1st and 15th. The results come six days later: on the 7th and 21st. That's when I return, total all of the votes, including mine (if necessary), and announce the winner.
One hit wonders are not uncommon and everyone has a few favorites. I'm no different. Couple that with my age, the fads I've lived through (Disco? Hello?), and my love of acoustic guitar and bam -- Paul McCrane's hit "Is It Okay If I Call You Mine?" was destined to appear on the Battle of the Bands. You may remember this tune from the movie, Fame. Or you may not.
Next question: who will be the contender? Can anyone stand against the mighty-ish Paul of McCrania? Okay, I jest. Anyway I spin this, it's a battle of unknowns. I kid you not: very, very few singers are covering this song unless they are relatively unknown. I've done the leg work...it's a vast, black vacuum of worthwhile covers...except for one fellow and I can't find out anything about him except that he is Canadian.
CONTENDER #1: PAUL McCRANE
CONTENDER #2: RVQ
Now comes your part: vote for the one you like most and if you want to tell me why, go for it. If you just one to write one word: I appreciate that, too. Heck, if you just step in this accidently and don't want to comment 'cause you're on the way to your nappy nap - snooze away!
But if you love the Battle of the Bands, there's more where that came from:
See you back here on the 21st!
