A word from Bill Shakespeare, as read in a tale of two young lovers: “You are a lover. Borrow Cupid's wings and soar with them above a common bound...”
Write a song for your lovepup...because, ladies and gentlemen...and you others...it's the BATTLE OF THE BANDS: LOVE SONG EDITION.
As always, this lovefest blogging event was first introduced by our friends, Fae and Stephen, and I'd like to give them a heartfelt "thank you" to the one and only: Fae @ Far Away Eyes and Stephen T. McCarthy presents...
The skinny: 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, maybe even mine (I had a tie in 2016!), and announce the winner.
Love songs hang on the charts like they're coated with super glue. Couples everywhere profess that somewhere out in radio land, THEIR song plays and touches the soul of their relationship. Plan on hearing that song every anniversary, kiddos. Love songs have staying power that feels personal, however public it may be. There, in the background of your mind, you hear that song and you think of THAT person.
You know it's the truth; we're all saps at heart. Okay, I take that back...let's just say we all have emotional ties to someone or something (don't give me details, please; I'm good).
So, my peeps, which of the following songs is worthy of being a love theme? Let's go back a bit for this round...you're standing below a window, you don't have a boom box playing a "In Your Eyes", but you'd chose one of these songs to croon...
CONTENDER #1: PAUL McCARTNEY
CONTENDER #2: The Pretenders
"I'll Stand By You"
CONTENDER #3: The Rolling Stones
Misty eyed? Calling your 70's or 80's prom date (don't...it's a bad, bad idea)? Or do you just have a momentary appreciation for old rock? Good enough! Vote below and give me your two cents. Heck, give me a whole dollar, if you're so inclined.
Then scoot over to my peeps' blogs and give a listen. Without exception, every single one of them is better at this than yours truly. Go on...they're waiting...don't dally...
