Something a little different this month!
I usually don't follow Taylor Swift's stuff, though I occasionally hear a catchy pop tune attributed to her and get it stuck in my head ("Safe and Sound" is a good example of that...Ahhhh! Now it's stuck in my head again! Drats!).
This foray started with a friend sending me a cover of the song, "ME!" (linked here) by TS. I'm not saying which one blew me away, but it did make me want to include it in a soft and lovely battle, like NOW!
"ME!" is an interesting title. Self-absorbed, maybe? Or perhaps just putting it out there for the universe to make sure it's clearly understood what "me" is about? An excuse to pull another musician into your video once more? Who knows? Who cares, really.

THE QUESTION OF THE MONTH:
The set up:
You're on a desert island, taking your last breath,
chalk in hand...staring at the cave-home wall. You're not
going to have a Tom-Hanks-Castaway ending.
What three words (or less) would you write on
the wall that explained who YOU were
or passed on your most important message?
Now, it's your turn! Vote for your favorite tune, answer the question of the month, and pretty please with sugar on top: visit my peeps.
I'll be back on August 7th; till then - keep the faith, be smart, and have a heart.
As always, a big thank you (and big prayers) to FAE (faraway eyes) for the original creative spark that started what would become the Battle of the Bands and to STEPHEN T. "Keeping the Faith" McCARTHY for hosting and keeping us on track. My personal Battle gets posted on the 1st of each month and results appear magically on the seventh, God willing. Several of the battling buddies post on the 15th also, so make sure you visit and vote.
Big love to you, people!
