Today is a double-hitter. We’ve got the #AtoZchallenge, as well as a Battle of the Bands.
Let’s start with the #AtoZchallenge
M is for... "My Sharona"
"My Sharona" is the debut single by the Knack. The song was written by Berton Averre and Doug Fieger, and released in 1979 from their album Get the Knack. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart where it remained for 6 weeks, and was number one on Billboard's 1979 Top Pop Singles year-end chart.
And now on to the battle ~
How the battle works: Twice a month, on or about the 1st and the 15th, various bloggers get post a battle on their blogs. Each battle is different, so you’ll want to be sure to visit the bloggers that are participating in the battles. You can find a list of participants here (I try to keep it up to date) On or about the 7th and 21st of each month, the winners of the battles are announced.
I found two pretty good contenders for today’s battle. In keeping with the AtoZ theme, I am using today’s song, My Sharona.
Please listen to the contenders and vote for your favorite in the comments. I’d love to know your thoughts on this song and the contestants.
First up, we have Contestant #1: Void
Next up, Contestant #2: Eldritch
If you’d like your blog to be part of this year-round bi-monthly Battle of the Bands BlogHop, let me know, and I’ll help direct you to the guy in charge. Don’t forget to visit the other battles taking place today.
Be sure to follow the 2017 AtoZ Challenge playlist for all of the songs featured in this years challenge.
