BOTB Results!: The Harmony Battle is OH SO CLOSE!


Well, it was a close one this time and I'm tempted to throw my vote on the pile, but that would CREATE a tie! Then again...if I created a tie, I could let both of the "winners" sing us out...hmmmm....

This is how the voting went:

The Thorns:  Arlee, Stephen, Birgit, John, Cherdo

The Lumineers: Mike (I'm shocked that more didn't like this one)

Dan Fogelberg: Debra, aisasami, Debbie D., Chris, Mary B.

Technically, the winner is DAN FOGELBERG! Let's be real, it's tough to beat Dan Fogelberg...that voice...oh, my gosh, I love it. 

But, I really dig The Thorns and I'm a bit miffed that I discovered them after then had disbanded. I'm a day late and a dollar (or more) short, as the saying goes. And my little old vote would have tied this gig.

So, I'll play them both! Because I can!

First, to the victor...play us out, Dan!:



And just because...The Thorns!



See you on the 15th -- but you need to see these peeps right now!

The Battle of the Bands: The Harmony Battle


Welcome to May and The Battle of the Bands!  In case you don't know, FAR AWAY EYES started this grand romp of a blogging event and it is currently hosted and promoted by brudder, "The Extra Beachy Beach Boy," STEPHEN T. McCARTHY. The mighty Battle gets posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and results appear magically six days later, on the 7th and 21st. You get the honor of casting a vote in the comments below to tell me which tune is your favorite and why (if you want to elaborate). If it's absolutely necessary, I add my own humble vote to break a tie and announce the winner, but why sully the whole event?
