#BOTB Results: Battle of the Blue Skies
Today’s results post is short and sweet, the way it ought to be, right?
For this battle, I had 2 songs of similar title, performed by 2 well-established artists. I was worried it might be a tie… boy was I wrong!
I paired the Allman Brothers ‘Blue Sky’ against ELO’s ‘Mr Blue Sky’. Here is how that turned out:
The first two votes went to both of the contenders, but it quickly became obvious that most people preferred ELO over the Allman Brothers. Mike stepped in with another vote for the Allman Brothers, but it just wasn’t enough to save them.
The Final Tally:
The Allman Brothers with 2 votes
ELO with 7 votes
Now, I just can’t let this day pass by without wishing Mr Stephen T McCarthy a Very Happy Birthday today. He says he has an annual tradition of listening to The Monkees on his birthday. I tried to find a video of The Monkees singing Happy Birthday, but all I could find was a creepy video that I just didn’t like. I did, however, find a different type of Monkey to wish him a Happy Birthday.
Being that The Monkees used session musicians, it’s only fitting that these monkeys did, too. Happy Birthday, Stephen. Thank you for the years of friendship! Don’t overdo it with the celebratin’ because now that you’re *ahem* older… it’s much easier to slip and break a hip - and we wouldn’t want that, would we?
What are your plans for October? I’m hammering out the details for the annual #RocktoberMusicFest, hosted by yours truly. I should have those details posted soon. I’d love to have each and every one of you join in the fun!
Be sure to come back on the 15th for a brand new battle! I’m not sure what I’ve got in store for you yet, But before you go… tell me, what did you think of this battle? Did you hate it? Did you enjoy it?
