BATTLE OF THE BANDS III
If you haven't heard of the Battle of Bands, you aren't following the blogs hosting this fabulous event. It began with The Far Away Series and then my friend Stephen decided to partner up with her. They are in cahoots and hosting a giveaway for people who vote on their sites. The Battle takes place on the 1st and 15th of every month. As you can see this is the third installment and it has been so popular that other folks, like yours truly, have decided to jump in on the fun. However, I am not the only one. Arlee Bird at Tossing It Out, Alex at Alex J. Cavanaugh, and Diane at Spunk on a Stick's Tips are also playing along and hosting their own Battle of the Bands on their sites. I encourage you to visit each of them and cast your vote. (Links provided so that you can easily check them all out:)
If you know of any other blogs participating that I didn't include, please mention them in the comments. (Thanks!)
The whole thing is pretty darn easy. You just listen to the selections and cast your vote. I am not going to tell you what I think about either version of the song posted. Stephen made the point very clearly in his first installment of the BOTB that the way a song is arranged can completely change it. Some arrangements are more fundamentally different than others (as you will note in each of these pairings on all blogs). Have fun listening and cast your vote below.
I decided to go with a song that we all know to kick off my participation in the Battle of the Bands. Enjoy!
Cast your vote below. Which version did YOU like best?
