BOTB Results: Lies! Liars! Landslides!


Well, for one brief and shining moment, there was unity among the humble voters...as in "I'm not crazy about any of them, so I'll vote for TRIO..."

Battle of the Bands: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire


A big thanks to FAE (faraway eyes) for the original creative spark that started what would become the Battle of the Bands and to STEPHEN T. McCARTHY for hosting this madcap musical love fest. The Battle gets posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and results appear magically six days later, SOME TIME (God willing) 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...and you see how your vote stacked up against thems that is playin' along...God bless 'em.

Lately, I've been battling "themes" and I'm still likin' that vibe. There's no end to songs dedicated to the topic of love, longing, cheating...you get the picture. Lies are a big ole' emotional quagmire that have served as muse to a number of fine musicians. So...why not battle that out, eh?

"Excuse me...where do the winners sit?"
Another Battle of the Bands is in the bag! How did you do with your vote for the heartthrobs of yester-year?

My thoughts: First of all, ya'll are so mean to rat lovin' Michael Jackson: "...They don't see you as I do! I wish they would try to!"

Battle of the Bands: The Heartthrobs


A big thanks to FAE (faraway eyes) for the original creative spark that started what would become the Battle of the Bands and to STEPHEN T. McCARTHY for hosting this madcap musical love fest.

If it's absolutely necessary, I add my own humble vote to break a tie and announce the winner...and you see how your vote stacked up against the huddled masses of humanity.

The Marquis of the Musical Mayhem, Stephen T. McCarthy, is taunting me with his genius by battlin' out two of my favorites today. I'm not going to elaborate, just check it out. In anticipation, I'm taking Tylenol, lest one of the remaining members of the bands (and their ain't many) call me out as a traitor for voting on the other.
