It’s the fifteenth of the month already (YIKES!). You know what that means don’t you? It’s time for another BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB). This will be number four. The other two parties to this contest The Debonair Mr. Arlee Bird and The smartest man I know Stephen T. Mccarthy and I decided on a theme for this particular battle. Since I’m always a day late and a dollar short, I bet you already know the theme, but I’ll tell you again anyway. It’s HAIR. I almost posted a picture of myself and my hair because it’s one of thing I got a lot of, but then I thought better of it. Anyway…let’s get on to the contest.
The three of us decided which song from this iconic musical we would let battle it out in advance and I chose “Aquarius’. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use the song from the original Broadway production or the movie, but I love the accompanying scenes in the movie so much, that’s the way I’m gonna go. So here’s the first selection Aquarius from the movie soundtrack ‘Hair’.
Next up the ‘HIT’ version of the same song. Sit back and enjoy the melodious sound of marvelous Marilyn and the Fifth Dimension.
Now you know the drill. Vote for your favorite in the comment box and tell me why. Once you’ve done that hop on over to my
partners in crime cohorts in this endeavor Stephen t. Mccarthy and Arlee Bird, see
what they’ve chosen for you and vote there also.
If you’re one of the many hopping onto this war wagon, please say so in the comment box, so that everyone can find their way to your space and vote for your selection also.
One more time here are the rules that accompany the contest hosted by myself, Stephen T. McCarthy and Arlee Bird –
Find The True Purpose For Voting On ‘Battle Of The Bands’ Installments: Win Compact Discs!-Compact Discs!-Compact Discs! Spectacular, Super-Colossal Blogosphere ‘Battle of The Bands’ Voting Contest!
Here’s The Deal: By voting on the ‘Battle Of The Bands’ blog bits here and at the ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ blog, you can win the compact disc of your choice. Every 4 months, Stephen and I will add up how many times you voted on our blogs, and the person who has participated most often (i.e., submitted the most eligible votes) will get to select one compact disc that contains any one of the songs that were included in either of our ‘Battle Of The Bands’ installments (“Super-Colossal” expensive boxed-sets, imports, and ‘out-of-print’ compact discs not included). In the event of a tie, the names will be put in a Stetson and the name drawn from the cowboy hat will win the CD.
Rules For Voting: Stephen and I post new ‘Battle Of The Bands’ blog bits on the 1st and 15th of each month. We also post our own personal votes for the respective blog bits on the 7th and 21st of each month (i.e., six days later). For your vote to be counted, it must be submitted in our comment sections BEFORE we post our own votes (BEFORE we make our own votes known on the 7th and the 21st).
Every 4 months there will be a new compact disc winner. In other words, ‘Battle Of The Bands’ #1 was posted on August 1, 2013, so at the end of November, one of you lucky voters is going to win a CD that includes one of the songs we’ve featured in our ‘Battle Of The Bands’ installments (you get to choose, and it doesn’t matter if the song won or lost its battle – if you like it, it’s YOURS!)
Alright, now... VOTE ON and ROCK ON! (while we ‘Count On...’)
I’ll be back on the 21st to let you know my choice and the outcome of this BATTLE.
