Wow. Let me just say the past few days have had me running. And running. And running some more. Sub in driving for most of that running and that's actually closer to the truth. But, the end result is the same. This girl is exhausted. My blog is neglected. My house is a wreck. The list of disasters just keep piling up.
And, to top it all off, I intended to put the results for Battle of the Bands a few days ago... and here we are. I've also been thinking I'd participate in that hop about how the A to Z went. Well, let's just say I have yet to sign up for that, and it may be so far out of people's minds by the time I'm able to get round to it that no one will care any longer. I had a great time with the A to Z, by the way, and I loved the theme I chose because of the participation I got from YOU guys. And maybe that was really all I wanted to say anyway. I don't know. Brain. Rattled.
Let's get back to the results for Battle of the Bands. The song was Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man by two excellent ladies: Billie and Ella. At first, the votes were rolling in really strong for Billie, and I was thinking I blundered again with this BoTB thing. How could I go so wrong pitting two greats against one another???? Turns out, I didn't go so wrong. The tide turned and Ella started raking in her share and then it became a HORSE RACE. If you know what I mean. Neck and neck. This one goes up by a nose, then this one, then this one, and well, it was pretty well like that all the way to the finish line. That's my kind of battle. In the end, it didn't even matter that my pick to win didn't. It was a darn fine race. Of course, it helped (me) that I really liked both versions. So, there were no losers in this battle. To my way of thinking, this is one of those battles I could throw two years from now (same song, same contenders) and have quite possibly a different outcome.
So, how did this shake out?
Billie Holiday: 24
Ella Fitzgerald: 23 (inc. mine)
It sho don't get closer dan dat.
Come back on the 1st and we'll give this another spin, and see how THAT one shakes out.
