Call Me Battle: December

Here we go again! 

We bid a fond farewell to The Partridge Family last month as Tommy Tutone took over the reign. 

This month has us moving into Phase 2 of the Call Me Battles.  Phase 1 was strictly songs that mentioned a phone number, and Phase 2 is a bit more open with songs that mention calling, telephones, etc. 

Are you getting tired of the theme? Don’t worry, McCarthy and I are brewing up some fun that will hopefully spice things up - stay tuned. More info to come soon!

Okay.. let’s get this month’s battle going! I’m excited about this one, as I really like both tunes. Both are great picks for the theme. But you must pick one. 

Tommy Tutone


Will Blondie take the lead? Or will Tommy Tutone hold his own for another month? Any guesses as to what McCarthy and I have got brewing in the back room?  Cast your votes in the comments below. If you find yourself unable to leave a comment, please visit Jingle Jangle Jungle’s facebook page to leave a comment on the post that correlates with this battle. 

In the event that you are new here, or you have simply forgotten… Here’s a review of how a battle works:

  1. Listen to each of the contenders. Try not to be persuaded by the videos. I like to close my eyes and let the music transport me. Keep an open mind and don’t be persuaded by the artist name. 

  2. Pick the contender that you prefer the most

  3. Leave a comment with the name of the contender you have chosen. Feel free to expound upon your choice. 

  4. Visit the other bloggers that have battles taking place. Their battles are different from each other, so be sure to check them out.  

    1. Stephen McCarthy 

    2. Tossing It Out

    3. The Sound of One Hand Typing

    4. Curious As A Cathy

    5. dIEDRE

    6. Debbie DogLady

    7. Christine

Are you a blogger and want to join in the fun with your own music battles on the 1st and 15th of each month (or only one battle a month) - reach out to Mr McCarthy to get yourself added to the list! 

Alright now… Cast your votes in the comments! Voting Results will be posted on the 8th of this month.  


  1. As far as I'm concerned Blondie takes this one. Both are good songs, but I just think Blondie's better.

    Have a great Christmas season!


  2. Gah! I'm gonna have to flip a coin on this. Excellent matchup, Mary ;-) My guess is that Tommy holds his own a little longer. As for me, now that I retrieved the nickel from under my desk, I'm voting for Tommy. For the memories.

  3. Both good songs, but Blondie resonates a bit more, largely, as diedre said, for the memories. ☺

  4. I definitely have to go with Blondie in this round. I love the energy! I love the song! Have a joyful, blessed Christmas season, Mary!

    Huh?! We're brewing something in the back room?
    I thought I was distilling something in the back room and that you were fermenting something in the back room.

    This Battle was really, Really, REALLY difficult for me!
    (I'm really, Really, REALLY lying!)

    Blondie... the original Britney Spears. Hey, one can dress it up a bit, but these ears of mine still know Disco when I hear it (and, yes, "Disco sucks"... still.)

    I am casting a "very vociferous vote" for TOMMY TUTONE. (You owe me $3.00 for the alliteration.)

    Judge Al Bondigas is also casting a vote for TOMMY TUTONE.
    I asked him why he was voting for Tommy and he said, "Because."
    I replied, "Oh."
    (We have some extremely intriguing conversations in this home.)
