#BattleOfTheBands : Alabama v. Bananarama
Where does the time go? I swear it goes faster and faster each day. I’m so far behind on some tasks that if I finally completed them, I would be considered early for the next time I needed to do that task.
Any way… it’s time for the first round of December battle of the bands. December. Let that sink in. In just a few short weeks that fat man will be making his way around the world to bring toys and goodies to all the good boys and girls (and some naughty ones - because they somehow ALWAYS seem to slip through the cracks - Santa must be getting old, too!)
Alright. Let’s get on with this before it’s January.
A week or so ago, Helen, who runs ‘Song Lyric Sunday’ gave us the prompt of “First”. While
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. The comment section has been set up so that anyone can leave a comment. I do ask that you please include your name, should you use the anonymous feature. Today’s contenders are Alabama and Bananarama. These are the only contenders that will receive votes today in this battle. 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 and holy, ONLY VOTE FOR ALABAMA OR BANANARAMA.
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.
Contender #1 - Alabama
Contender #2 - Bananarama
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. 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).
Wait, Wait, Wait!!!
