Battle of the Bands: Who's Really Comin' to Town?


A big thanks to FAE the Mistletoe Miss (faraway eyes) for the original creative spark that started what would become the Battle of the Bands and to STEPHEN T. "Ho Ho Ho, You'll Put Your Eye Out Kid" 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! 

My graphic was actually from last years battle and I'd like to remember all the folks who join us for a season - or for always! Life gets in the way some times, but I'm always grateful for our community of bloggers. 

Cut to the chase! It's my favorite Battle of the Bands month and I'd like to share one of my favorite hymns by Charles Wesley, COME THOU LONG EXPECTED JESUS. One of the pastors at my old church used this in service and I have to say...ahhh, beautiful. 

CONTENDER #1: 
The Skit Guys featuring Marcy Priest



CONTENDER #2:
Fernando Ortega


Which one is YOUR favorite? Is Jesus the reason for the season at your house, or is it that fat fella (height challenged, I'm sorry) in the red suit? Or Wally Mart worship, maybe? Just another day?

Hint hint...we here at the Flipside are in the camp that "long expects" a visit.  

But what about these crazy cats below? What's going on with their seasonal salute to tinsel and tunes? Only one way to find out...go there and vote!
