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 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.
Which caused me to change my line up...I'm in the mood for middle school musical crushes now, peeps! And if you were walking the terra firma in the 70s, you must recognize these giants of pop-dom. Let the games begin!
All these songs were hits for the heartthrobs, but maybe not the main claim to fame.
CONTENDER #1: DAVID CASSIDY
"Echo Valley 26809"
CONTENDER #2: BOBBY SHERMAN
"Julie, Do You Love Me?"
CONTENDER #3: MICHAEL JACKSON
Your task is clear! Show these fancy pants guys who is boss once and for all (Bruce Springsteen, butt out...). Vote!
Then visit the other fine bloggers and give them your input, vote on the battles, plant a mighty "high five" on their efforts! Go on! I'll be back here to tally up later.
Thanks for the visit, my peeps. Always appreciated.
