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 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.
Today, I'm challenging you all to
answer this musical question:
What song gets you on your feet and dancing?
Considering the average age of my peeps (I didn't say it was good or bad, young or old, you can do that math on your own time...you know who you are...and for how LONG you've been that person), I'm pulling songs from several decades.
In my younger days, there were always those tunes that you OWNED. You know that gig...swaying to some nondescript pop sound when the new song starts...you hear the first few bars and you can't help but announce, "THAT'S MY SONG!" as you drag your nearest and dearest friend to the dance floor.
Been there. Done that. Wash and repeat ad infinitum.
Let's battle...and I'll try to tone down the disco leanings.
CONTENDER #1: THE WHISPERS
CONTENDER #2: PINK
"Get This Party Started"
CONTENDER #3: OUTKAST
There's no possible way to cover all the great dance tunes and I've tried to shy away from obvious favorites. If you don't see yours here (likely), tell me about it in the comments below - but, vote for your favorite among the top three listed!
Then visit these fine bloggers - there's a battle on every corner.
Travel time for Cherdo! Say a prayer for good weather and smooth sailing...er, driving. My thanks, in advance. 😊😊😊
