Whoa! I loved this battle because it put me back in my groove of only using songs I like. And boy, did I like these three: Eddie Cochran's Summertime Blues, Sly and the Family Stone's Hot Fun in the Summertime, and Seals and Crofts' Summer Breeze. Each one of these gems transports me back in time in the best way possible.
But there can only be one winner and the votes (botes) tell the tale:
- Cochran: Mike, angryparsnip, Birgit
- Sly & the Family Stone: John Holton, Janet, Stephen T. McCarthy
- Seals & Crofts: Debbie D., aisasami, Arlee Bird, Alex J. Cavanaugh, Mary B, Cathy Kennedy, CWMartin
Man, I loved Seals and Crofts back in the day. A neighbor's granddaughter came visiting from California and the most impressive thing she every told me was that she was babysitting Jimmy Seals' child. I had to see pictures (she was!). It didn't take much to wow me back in the day, but that did.
To the victors! Play it again, Jimmy and Dash:
