Well, it's a new year! I know, because I made sure this posted at 12:01 a.m. (EST, of course). By any measurement, it's solid 2017. Ladies and Gentlemen...and you others...it's the BATTLE OF THE BANDS.
As always, this tuney, hum-right-along 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.
January 1 is the time when we all look for motivation to venture forth into the new year. Everybody's different. That got me wondering: what would a motivational song look like to YOU? In a different twist for the first Battle of the Bands of 2017, I'm giving you three artists and lyrics and asking the musical (okay, it's not musical, as I am not singing it) question:
Which song is the most motivational to you?
CONTENDER #1: The Foo Fighters
CONTENDER #2: David Bowie
CONTENDER #3: Tom Petty
"Runnin' Down a Dream"
So, did any of these make you feel inspired to get up and go? To tackle the new year? To be a hero or chase a dream? Put your vote in the comments and I'd love to hear the reason you chose one song over another. I don't judge, ha ha.
Don't forget to visit my peeps, far superior battlers!
Wait...what am I forgetting...oh, yes:
