#4M + #BOTB Results


Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by X-Mas Dolly, and co-hosted by Callie of JAmerican Spice, Stacy of Stacy Uncorked and Cathy from Curious as a Cathy


Before we get started with today's music, let's go over the Battle of the Bands Results.

The song was 'Happy Together', and we had three contenders.  This was such a tight race. Very difficult to predict a winner early-on. This three-legged race was neck and neck from the very beginning to the very end - And I do believe that this is the first time in our BOTB history that we have had these kind of results. You, my friends and readers, made this happen!  It was a very good battle, in my opinion.

The final results:

Flobots with 5 votes
Hugo Montenegro with 5 votes
The Nylons with 5 votes

That's right, folks - we have a three-way tie!  

Thank you everyone for stopping by to cast your vote! We'll have a new round of battles on June 1st, with new songs and new contenders.

Now onto today's regular post:

Today’s theme is ‘FREEBIE’

That means there really is no theme for the day. I picked out a few tunes to help you get your week started off right.

Melanie - Brand New Key
Harry Chapin - Cats In the Cradle
Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness
Incubus - Drive
Bruno Mars - That’s What I Like



These should keep you rockin’ for a little bit. Be sure to stop by the other participants in Monday’s Music Moves Me. (You can find a list HERE)

  2. Mary,

    What a bummer - a three way tie! That's really quite incredible. Should I demand a recount? lol Oh, "Brand New Key" is just one of those fun, catchy tunes and this is going to be stuck in my head today. :) I love all the rest of the songs on your playlist. I may have to consider creating my own playlists on YouTube. Is this hard to do? I haven't tried doing it. Thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M crew, my friend and have tunetastic week!

    Dance Freebie Style #4M and Leather Tuscadero Wins #BoTB!

    PS: Marie is under the weather. She just got out of the hospital with pneumonia.

    1. Hi Cathy

      I think the three-way tie is pretty exciting! Sorry to hear Marie is not feeling well. Playlists are not hard at all to do on YouTube. I used to just provide a link to the playlist and post the individual videos, but thought I'd switch it up a bit.

  3. Three way tie is kind of amazing. But I guess that goes to show the varied tastes of the voters who visited this Battle.

    1. Thanks, Lee

      The Three Way tie makes me feel a lot better about using the three contenders that I was having a hard time deciding on. I think each one was just different enough to give them their own style.

    1. Hey Stephen!

      It's a great lead in for the June 1 battle! That one is going to be pretty special as well. I've got a few good posts coming in the meantime to help tide us all over until then.

  7. Wow; a three-way tie! What are the odds? ☺ Fun battle, Mary.
    The Incubus tune was new to me. Good one!

    1. I know, right?!? I knew there was a reason I was having a hard time deciding which contenders to use. My gut instinct at the very end said to go with three, and I'm really happy that I did. If memory serves me correct, the Incubus tune was one of there earliest hits, if not their first. I've always liked it. Thanks for dropping by, Debbie!

  8. Wow, how cool that you had a 3-way tie! And yep, I would bet that's a first!
    Love your playlist today. Especially Melanie's Brand New Key. Brings back so many memories. :)

    1. Thanks, Michele!

      I tried to come up with a few songs that would get us all moving, some good motivation to get the week started right! I'm really tickled about the 3 way tie. As of yesterday, it was only a 2 way tie, but Mike swooped in at the last minute and his vote turned it into a three way.

    1. Ha! Just a tiny cross-section of music that puts me in a good mood. I got a little carried away with next week's theme. Good thing it's a holiday!
