1) Very little work was required from me to put a post together. All I had to do was think of a keyword and let you guys play along in the comments. ::awesome::
2) Because my posts weren't/aren't all that time-consuming, I'm doing a better job than usual at keeping up with you guys.
On the other hand...
1) I began traveling Thursday and won't be home again until Wednesday. I'm exhausted. My brain keeps misfiring. I'm getting the days mixed up. All in all, I'm having some difficulty keeping my blog accurately in the air.
EXHIBIT A: I went through all day yesterday thinking it was Saturday. So, I forgot to update the "H" post with your Girl songs until after noon (when I was home again). Because I didn't do that, I also didn't update the post in general with the "daily changes" that didn't quite make the initial editing process.
EXHIBIT B: I've been meaning for the last THREE days to post the results of Battle of the Bands on top of an A to Z post. This has NOT happened. Obviously. So, here we are.
This is me:
On the invisible third hand, I need to note that we are really only just over a week into the A to Z. I can't imagine what I'll look like when this is done. Maybe this?
Okay, I think I've established my state of mind (or lack thereof). Let's get on with the results for Battle of the Bands. You've certainly waited long enough...
The song was Angel of the Morning. The contenders were Skeeter Davis and Chrissie Hynde. Skeeter nabbed the lead in this horse race and never gave it up. Every now and then, Chrissie Hynde would gain some ground, only to have Skeeter snatch it right back. It wasn't the most exciting BotB rounds here on this blog given the lead Skeeter maintained throughout the battle. How did it all shake out?
Skeeter Davis: 16
Chrssie Hynde: 11 (including mine)
I liked both versions. I simply preferred Chrissie's deeper voice. I don't always understand my own reasons for liking one version over another. It just is. I also don't have sentimental attachment to either artist (which I know can and, sometimes, does influence my vote).
The next battle will take place on the 15th. Or the letter "M" for you A to Zers. I hope you come back, vote for your favorite, and post a song for the KEYWORD. Lots going on here... daily, for a change.
