#BOTB Fats Waller vs Satchmo + Monday's Music Moves Me
Can you believe it’s time for our next Battle of the Bands? The time sure is flying by quickly this year. It’s hard to believe that we are now in the month of May.
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 ‘Freebie’ which means I don’t have to adhere to any theme, so I’m just going to use my battle song. Hope you all don’t mind.
I figured that as I just spent the entire month of April doing 1970’s Billboard Hits, that you might want a break from that. (Sorry, Stephen… no Bee Gees today!)
Today I thought I would step into the world of jazz.
The song choice for today is “I Ain’t Got Nobody”, a song that is sometimes referred to as “I’m So Sad and Lonely”
Lyrics are by Roger A Graham, composed by Spencer Williams, and published by Roger Graham Music Publishing. The song was copyrighted in 1915.
The song has been covered by many artists in several genres. From Country music, to Jazz, to Rock. But today, we’ve got two jazz artists competing against each other.
Please vote for either Fats Waller or Louis Armstrong in the comments. Voting will end on May 7, 2017 at 6pm EST with results being posts on May 8.
I’d like to encourage you to visit the other bloggers participating in the battle of the bands as well. You can find a current list HERE, or on Stephen’s blog. Don’t forget to visit X-Mas Dolly and the other Monday’s Music Moves Me players as well.
