Battle of the Bands: She's So High

Time for Round #8 of Battle of the Bands!

Here’s how it works: I’ll be posting two versions of the same song and after you give a listen to each, place your vote for your favorite and reason for the way you voted in the comments section. I’ll tally the votes and post the results in another post 6 days later. The Battles take place on the 1st and 15th of each month, and the results will be posted on or around the 7th and 21st.  The other blogs participating in the Battle of the Bands are posting different battles (different songs), So once you’re done voting and commenting on my battle, take a moment to visit the other participants and vote & comment on their battles.  There are some really good battles going on!

I’m posting this a day early, as the 15th falls on a Tuesday, which is typically a day that I don’t post.

The Song:  "She’s So High"

Wikipedia tells us this:

"She's So High" is a pop rock song written and performed by Canadian singer-songwriter Tal Bachman. It was released as a single in 1999 from his eponymous album. The song won a BMI award and a Juno Award for Best Producer. Parent album Tal Bachman did particularly well, in the U.S. reaching the #1 spot on Billboard's 'Heatseekers' chart.

The song did particularly well in the U.S.; for example, it reached the #1 spot of Billboard's 'Adult Top 40' chart. The American media group Allmusic named it an 'album pick'

Bachman wrote the song about an experience that he had in high school when he was trying to get a girl to date his stepbrother. "I attempted to bribe the hottest girl in our high school to go out on a date with [my stepbrother]," Bachman told MTV News. "So as the conversation between me and what I thought was this godly, exalted woman progressed, I began to feel more and more uncomfortable and awkward, and so I just remember that feeling... I don't want to say fear, but just kind of being in awe of her."

The First Contender:  Tal Bachman
