RESULTS - GOOD, BAD, OR INDIFFERENT AND botb #23
I'm two days late with my BOTB results post, not completely surprised, are you?
This may be because my results basically have not been good. Sees this 'dumb blonde' can't pass a 'blood test', I have to keep retaking them, and I'm getting darn tired of it. I promised myself that I'm not going to whine about my health anymore, but just know I'm having a hard time keeping my head above water.
To those of you who commented on my 'I Remember Momma' post. Thank you. I really did appreciate your sentiments, I just was not emotionally able to respond. I did get a chuckle out of some of the stories about your mom's and am glad to hear that I'm not the only disrespectful,name-calling, dumb, child out there.
Now onto the task at hand. The results for BOTB #23. It appears most of you did not like Woody Guthrie's version of his own tune 'This Land is Your Land'. Perhaps if I had posted the version by Peter, Paul, and Mary who have far better voices and sing a great harmony, but alas I went for the direct opposites with Woody and his folksy original nasally singing around the campfire sound, and Ms. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and their more jazzed up bluesy version.
I have to tell you I cast my vote for Ms. Jones and the Dap Kings also. They did a super job of making an 'American Classic' sound like a true blue American Classic'.
BTW, I went to the Urban Dictionary to see just exactly what a 'dap' is and they say; it's the equivalent of a 'fist bump'. so, there you have it.
The final tally, including my vote is:
Woody Guthrie 1 vote
Sharon Jones & the DK 11 votes
A special thank you to Donna Hole for casting that lone vote for Woody. When I host a shut-out, I don't feel as though I've done a very good job on matching up my combatants.
I hope to see you back here on the 15th for another BATTLE OF THE BANDS. This next BATTLE will be number 24, can you believe it. I've been at this for a whole year (or will be, if I make it until then).
