Today is the 21st and it is time for the results in the Battle of the Bands contest. The song was Hallelujah with Leonard Cohen vs. Jeff Buckley. I want to say up front that I REALLY LIKE both versions. Cohen's voice is gravelly and not the most pleasant on the ear, but this song is about how we reach the Hallelujah in our moments of despair, so I am okay with it. I also liked the alternate verses at the end of Cohen's original recording, though he mixes it up when he sings it live, so you never know which verses he'll use. Buckley's version is also raw in its own way. His voice is more appealing to the ear and the guitar work melts me. So, while I LIKE them both, I like Buckley's version more. My vote didn't change anything. Buckley won this one by a landslide. With my vote he has 15, Cohen has 3, and KD Lang got a write-in. The next Battle of the Bands happens on the 1st, so come back and vote. I am thinking it will be something more romantic given that Valentine's Day is approaching...
Now for the Coffee News. Remember last Thursday when I shared my coffee story and dedicated a coffee video to Michael di Gesu in the hopes of winning the pound of Authentic Colombian Coffee that he is so generously giving away? Well, I won!!!! Yep, you read that correctly. **fireworks going off*** So, I want to give this little gift to Michael to show him my appreciation:
Love Is Still In The Air....
Charity Bradford, one of the contributors to the blog Unicorn Bell, posted THIS asking for people to contribute their favorite romantic scenes from movies and TV. You simply shouldn't challenge a YouTube junkie to come up with this
sort of stuff. I spent the next few HOURS looking for footage. Yes, you
read that right. Hours.
I now have so much footage that I will be posting every day
until Valentine's Day. Woohoo.
I am tagging all of these Love Is In The Air and you can go back to my January 18 post to watch any that you missed.
The following clips are from the TV show The Gilmore Girls. That was the show that provided all of those coffee clips for Michael on his blog hop. These clips don't feature coffee, but they seemed to fall in line with the overall theme for today.
Here we go...
And one more featuring my other favorite Gilmore Girl...
Are you a Gilmore Girls fan? If so, what was your favorite romantic scene from the show? If not, are you thinking about it now????
What is your favorite romantic moment from the big or small screen?
