So, let's get down to it.
For each letter of the A to Z, I'm going to give you a KEYWORD. You post in the comments a song with that word in the title. I will give you one to start (along with a video). If you like, you can go to YouTube and embed your video in the comments (by copy/pasting the link), so that readers can also listen to your song. No repeats and only post one song so that everyone can participate. If you're just brimming with songs, come back in a few days and lay it on me! If you want to see who else is participating in the A to Z click here. Special thanks to Arlee Bird and the A to Z team who make this possible!
Today and the 15th, I'll be combining the challenge with Battle of the Bands, which pits two covers of the same song against one another. Listen to each and then vote on your favorite. Approximately one week later, I'll tally up the votes and post the winner based on your votes.
What is the KEYWORD?
That leads to my choice in song: ANGEL OF THE MORNING.
This song has been covered many times, with the most well-known version by Juice Newton. So, we'll listen to two other ladies sing it. Then you vote on who you think does it better! ALSO, post a song with the word ANGEL in the title (and embed the video if you like).
First up is Skeeter Davis:
Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders:
Please vote for the version of this song you prefer. If you want to get into the Ins and Outs of why you like one better than the other... I LOVE long comments!
