May 15. Time for the next Battle of the Bands. I was going to go with something silly, but…
I’m also participating in 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.
Today’s theme for the Monday’s Music Moves Me is ‘60’s Rock Songs’ which means I better not do something silly… this time.
"Happy Together" is a 1967 song from The Turtles' album of the same name. Released in February 1967, the song knocked The Beatles' "Penny Lane" out of the #1 slot for three weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the group's only chart-topper. "Happy Together" reached #12 on the UK Singles Chart in April 1967. The song was written by Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon, former members of a band known as The Magicians. The song had been rejected a dozen times before The Turtles were offered it, and the demo acetate was worn out.
I usually only have 2 contenders, but I was having a difficult time choosing, so today we have 3 contenders in the battle.
Contender # 1 Flobots
Contender #2 Hugo Montenegro
Contender #3 The Nylons
Please vote for either Flobots, Hugo Montenegro, or The Nylons in the comments. Voting will end on May 21, 2017 at 6pm EST with results being posted on May 22.
