Battle of the Booze
Hey look! We made it through another year! Welcome to 2024!
Dang near a year ago, Stephen approached me with an idear. At the time, I wasn't doing so great healthwise, so we decided to put a pin on this one until now - Plus he wanted it to start on his Margarita Day (I say ‘His’ because the official Margarita Day happens in February - google it. I’m not lying!)
We will both be running Battle of the Booze battles, but using our own selections - just to keep it interesting. I’ll share more of the ‘rules’ of the boozy battles, just in case some of you all want to join in as well.
The song MUST mention a specific type of booze - not just ‘alcohol’ or ‘drinking’
The format of the battles will be as follows:Song A beats Song B.Song C beats Song D.Song E beats Song F.Song G beats Song H.Song I beats Song J.Song K beats Song L.Somewhere down the road, the Playoffs will begin, and look like this:A versus CE versus GI versus J
Now for this first battle, I’m definitely breaking all the rules.
It’s New Year's Day. I’m certain a few of you may have indulged a bit too much, and the thought of alcohol might put you over the edge. Nothing like a little Hair O’ the Dog to get you through this day.
So today’s song doesn't mention drinking or alcohol - or even any specific type of alcohol. But I thought it would be a fun way to kick off the theme.
So let’s get this party started!
Guns N Roses
Now I’ve got a pretty good idea that this may be a lopsided battle - but honestly today’s battle is more about introducing the theme than anything else. If you’re a blogger and want to join in the fun, please do so! There’s plenty of content for everyone to join in.
In the event that you are new here, or you have simply forgotten… Here’s a review of how a battle works:
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.
Pick the contender that you prefer the most
Leave a comment with the name of the contender you have chosen. Feel free to expound upon your choice.
