The Ultimate Dog v Cat Battle of the Bands Tournament, Championship Round
Have you been following The Ultimate Dog v Cat Battle of the Bands Tournament?
Let me tell you, it has been a LOAD of fun co-hosting this little event with my good friend Michele from Angels Bark!
She’s been a good sport about the taunts from the ‘cats’.
If you haven’t been following along, let me recap the event for you.
Round One took place on each of our sites on July 15. Round One was intended to be our ‘harder’ rock tunes representing our sides.
Michele featured Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog” and Ted Nugent’s “Dog Eat Dog”
I didn’t quite get the memo and went with covers of Ted Nugent’s “Cat Scratch Fever”
Round Two was for our ‘softer’ rock tunes. This round took place on August 1.
Michele featured Marvin Gaye’s “I’ll Be Doggone” and Lobo’s “Me & You & a Dog Named Boo”
I featured Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s In The Cradle” and Ugly Kid Joe’s “Cat’s In The Cradle”
Round Three (The Semi-Finals) happened on August 15, and we each battled our own harder rock against our own softer rock winners from Rounds One and Two.
Today we have The Championship Round taking place. The winners of the Semi-Finals are now facing off to see once and for all who is better - The CATS or The DOGS!
I have a pretty good idea who is going to take this Championship - but one never really knows with the unpredictability of our readers.
So, let me explain how voting will take place - since we’re both posting this same battle on both of our pages.
We would like to encourage you to visit both of our pages - because while a battle is a lot of fun, it’s nice to have the traffic and support of our friends and fellow bloggers!
HOWEVER - your vote will only be counted once. That’s right - if you vote on both of our pages, the duplicate vote will be discarded. If you happen to vote differently of both of our pages - this will nullify both of your votes - so please don’t think you can split your vote. It won’t work that way.
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. Today’s contenders are Led Zeppelin and Harry Chapin. These are the only two contenders that will receive votes today. I know some of you get excited about the graphics when you see a name or song you recognize - but please, for the love of all things good, ONLY VOTE FOR HARRY CHAPIN OR LED ZEPPELIN.
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 you’ll want to get on to the other battles taking place today.
Contender #1 - Harry Chapin - Cats In The Cradle
Contender #2 - Led Zeppelin - Black Dog
YOU DON’T NEED TO BE FAMILIAR WITH AN ARTIST OR A SONG TO KNOW WHICH ONE YOU PREFER. You only need to listen to the videos and choose which one sounds better to you. There are no right or wrong votes, unless you vote for someone not listed as a contender or don’t vote at all.
For those of you who may be interested in joining in our fun - 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 just want you to join in the fun! Catch the link to Stephen’s blog to join in - all you need to do is drop him a comment on his blog stating you’d like to participate and he’ll add you to the roster of participants.
I’d like to encourage you to visit the other bloggers participating in the battle of the bands blog hop as well, but especially would like to encourage you to visit Michele’s battle in this tournament. . 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 (with the exception of Michele & I). You can find a current list of participants 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).
