Battle of the Bands: A "Heck" of a Tune


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 and keeping us on track. 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. Cast your vote in the comments below to tell me which tune is your favorite and why. If it's absolutely necessary, I add my own incoherent vote to break any ties and announce the winner...and you get to see how your vote stacked up against the wonderful peeps of the IoT.

It's been a heck of a summer...

First off, I had a surgery on my foot (end of May) that I thought would be a walk limp in the park. Nopety nope, I had a Frankenfoot caused me to question all medical decisions I have made or will make and multiple orthotics & PT visits to get over it. 

When the healing was finally in full swing and things started to look up, my poor sweet dog, Coco, passed away, God rest her doggy-soul.

So, here we are. In dear old K-ville, it was a steamy 95 degrees today as I walked my recently acquired rescue dog, Daisy, over my crunchy, dry lawn. At least I think it is a lawn...it may have degraded into another form of matter.

It's the Fall, correct? Am I looking at the calendar wrong? I swear, I smell pumpkin spice something-or-other every day and I know that's a surefire sign. Pumpkins are everywhere. Halloween costumes and candy surround me in the pharmacy. And yet, my forearms were sunburned.

Perhaps this explains why two of the songs that keep making the rounds in my brain have the word "H E Double-toothpicks" in the title...

These two tunes are catchy, have great videos, and remind me of heat.

CONTENDER #1: BLAKE SHELTON
"Hell Right"




CONTENDER #2: THE DEAD SOUTH
"In Hell, I'll Be Good Company"



Let me go out on a limb and say I think these songs are pretty evenly matched. They also remind me that no matter how catchy this tune is, I do not, in fact, what to give myself over to the HECK side. I'm not changing teams, just in case you wondered. :-)

But it's not all about MOI, I need to hear from my peeps! Give me your vote for your favorite and tell me what made one better than the other for your sophisticated ear-holes.

Then...you know the drill! Visit these other fine bloggers and vote! 


We all appreciate your participation. Invite a friend to participate; it's a HECK of a good time. See you back here on the 7th to tally up the votes.
