#RocktoberMusicFest, #4M, #BOTB and a Celebration!
I have a lot going on today!
First, I’m starting with a celebration!
Why, you ask? Well....
Blogiversary today. This blog is now 4 years old.
In honor of this, I’m hosting a month-long blog hop #RocktoberMusicFest with daily linky so you can join in the fun any time this month - every day or just when you feel like it (as long as your post includes Rock music!)
Monday’s Music Moves Me (otherwise known as #4M). Today’s theme is ‘Free Choice’.
Battle of the Bands going on today. I’m so glad that I can toss all of this together into one big* (but not too big) post.
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)
Step Two - Pick the contender that you prefer the most
Step Three - Comment with your selection. Today’s contenders are Cherri Bomb and The Harleys. These are the only 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 CHERRI BOMB or THE HARLEYS
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.
For today’s battle, I chose The Pretender by Foo Fighters. This song is the first single from their 2007 album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace.
Contender #1 - Cherri Bomb
Contender #2 - The Harleys
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.
I’d like to encourage you to visit the other bloggers participating in the battle of the bands blog hop as well. We’ve all 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 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).
