Battle of the Bands - Dog Fight Edition
Time for the next installment of Battle of the Bands!
A Big welcome to the new readers and a hearty welcome back to those of you who are not so new to this blog.
Our last battle was for the cats, and as promised, today’s battle is for the dogs.
may be interested - The battles take place twice a month. Once on the 1st, and again on the 15th. Some participants have chosen to participate only once a month - and that’s okay - we’re just happy to have you join us! Your battle can consist of covers of the same song, different songs with the same title, or even a themed type battle. We’re not going to withhold your dog bones and chew toys if you don’t do as everyone else does. Catch the link later in this post to Stephen’s blog to join in the fun - all you need to do is drop him a comment on his blog and he’ll add you to the roster of participants. Don’t worry, he may look as though he’s seen better days, he ain’t no junkyard dog.
As a reminder for you seasoned readers and to help out those of you who may be new here
Here is how a battle works:
Step One - Listen to each of the contenders. TRY not to be persuaded by the videos (unless specifically requested - in the case of today’s battle, listening is more important than watching)
StepTwo - Pick the contender that you prefer the most
Step Three - Comment with your selection. (Yes, I know my blog can be pretty sometimes. Yes, I know you may not be familiar with the song(s) or artist(s). Don’t tell me about that. Instead, give me your opinion on which is the better contender.) It’s not rocket science.
Step Four - Visit Stephen’s blog to check out his battle and for a list of other bloggers that have have battles going on. We each have different battles, so please be sure to visit everyone. I'll provide a link below the videos to Stephen's blog for your convenience.
Alright - I’ll make this next part quick because I know some of you want to get on to the next dog fight, or cat chase, or maybe even a good nap.
The song I chose for today was written by David Bowie. Diamond Dogs is the title track for the album of the same name, released in 1974. The track was considered by many commentators to be an unconventional single, and it only reached number 21 in the UK. The song was not released in the US, but it became a central part of Bowie’s North American tour in 1974.
Contender #1 - Beck
Contender #2 - Duran Duran
YOU DON’T NEED TO BE FAMILIAR WITH AN ARTIST OR A SONG TO KNOW WHICH ONE YOU PREFER. There are no right or wrong votes, unless you vote for someone not listed as a contender or don’t vote at all.
I’ll keep the voting open until Sunday, June 24 @ 3pm EST with results posted on Monday, June 25.
I’d like to encourage you to visit the other bloggers participating in the battle of the bands as well. We’ve put a lot of time and effort into putting together these battles and they are a lot of fun. Each blogger has a different battle taking place. You can find a current list on Stephen’s blog (don't forget you can also request to join the battle of the bands blog hop by simply commenting on his blog that you'd like to join us).
