Battle of the Bands Results - When I Write the Book

One of my favourite musical artists is Huey Lewis. I've gone to no less than four or five of his concerts. Which ironically enough, is about the same number of concerts I've gone to for Diana Krall. But, I digress. I'm sure you are more interested to find out the results of this current musical battle (as if you have not guessed already).

The battle started with an immediate leaning towards Huey Lewis. Arlee gave the first vote for Nick Lowe, but the rest of the votes in the first round went for Huey Lewis. John led the voters, followed by Dixie & Chrys.

The second round was shorter but still went in Huey's favour. Robin & Mary for the News and Michele for Nick.

The third round changed things up a bit. No, not because the majority of the votes went for Nick Lowe, but because they were all for Huey Lewis. A complete sweep thanks to Debbie, Pat, Shady and Stephanie.

The fourth round went exactly as the third. One vote for Nick and two for Huey Lewis. In other words, mike vs diedre & Stephen.

One doesn't have to be Sherlock Holmes to deduce what this all means.....


Winners - Huey Lewis
With a final score of 11-3
Congratulations to Huey Lewis & the News


This battle, I asked fellow BOTBers about their origins of joining the BOTB. Here are the...
Top Comments

John Holton - My first Battle of the Bands was September 1, 2014. Arlee invited me. The song was "You Really Got A Hold On Me," and the competitors were Smokey Robinson and the Miracles (the original group), The Beatles, and She & Him (Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward). There was one vote for She & Him, and the rest went to Smokey Robinson.

Arlee Bird - When I saw STMcC and FAE doing BOTB I asked if they minded if I joined in since this is something big in my realm of interests. BOTB is now my favorite thing to do on my blog. Well that and A to Z. My first BOTB was "Down By the River" between Neil Young and McKendree Spring. Neil Young won that round. That post was on August 30 of 2013. Wow, going on 3 years at this now!

Dixie@dcrelief - What was your first music battle? Who won? "I Open My Mouth to the Lord," won by an unknown choir. What inspired you to join? Pressure from "the sexiest man alive" (namely, Stephen T. McCarthy!) Really!!! What date/year did you join? January 01, 2015

Robin - Well, your questions sparked a whole lot of scrolling through old blog posts. I knew my first Battle of the Bands was The Star Spangled Banner, but it didn't come up when I searched it. Don't ask. I don't know why. I did indeed tag it. Turns out that was September 1, 2013. I don't recall how exactly I joined. I think I left comments on FAE's and StMc's blogs about joining in. I really don't remember any longer. Anyway, the contenders were Madison Rising and Jose Feliciano and Madison Rising whooped poor Jose. I could've chosen much better. I like to think I've learned a lot about picking better footage, but I still have contests like that... so I don't know.

Mary Burris - I knew my love for spreadsheets would come in handy one day! …. it was shortly after the A to Z Challenge that I discovered the BOTB. I honestly don't recall exactly who's blog it was that it was, but I fired off a message begging the BossMan (Mr McCarthy) to let me join in all the fun. Not wanting to duplicate someone's battle, I opened up my excel and went back to the very beginning of time - the very first battles that FAE and BossMan held, and started tracking all the songs and contestants, adding in new participants as they came along. I didn't track winners or losers (except for my own personal battles). This spreadsheet has come in handy for me. When I have a thought about using a particular song or artist in a battle I consult my spreadsheet to see if it's been done before. Of course, I'm not able to predict or see who is in upcoming battles and such, but it has proven to be helpful to me when planning my own battles, as I like to have them written in advance. My first battle took place June 1, 2015. The song was "Baker Street". I really wanted the Foo Fighters to be a contestant, but for some bizarre reason I was not able to find a video that was playable in the USA at that time. So my contestants ended up being Game Theory and Waylon Jennings. Waylon received 11 votes, while Game Theory received 8

Michele Truhlik - I had to go back in my blog archives to find my first battle and guess what? I missed my 1 year anniversary! I didn't even realize I'd been doing this for a full year already -- I started on May 15th 2015. My battle was the song Without You pitting Badfinger against Mariah Carey. Interestingly, the votes came in at a tie so my vote was the tie-breaker and I voted for Mariah (though it pained me to vote against Badfinger). Arlee Bird was the one who invited me to participate too!

Debbie D. - You joined exactly one month after I did. Arlee got me hooked as well. First BOTB was "House of the Rising Sun". The White Buffalo beat out Frijid Pink. There's a BOTB compilation page under "Music Muse".

mike spain -My first battle was a day late on 7.16.14. The song was Dead Flowers by the Rolling Stones. They won against Blues singer Samantha Fish and songwriter Townes Van Zandt.

Stephen T. McCarthy - (What was your first music battle? Who won?) - It was BEBEL GILBERTO Vs. BEBEL GILBERTO on the song 'AGANJU'. And Bebel Gilberto won. And lost. She had recorded the song twice with two drastically different arrangements. I wanted to illustrate how important arrangements can be in making or breaking a song. So my very first Battle was designed more as an "object lesson" than it was designed to be competitive (which it wasn't, no surprise to me).
(What inspired you to join?) - HA! Well, I didn't really "join". I "began". But everyone already knows that story.
(What date/year did you join?) - Started on August 1, 2013.

Shady Del Knight - My first battle took place May 1, 2015, and was a three way contest with Petula Clark, Peggy Lipton and Billie Davis performing "Wasn't It You." Pet Clark won the contest by a three vote margin.



Please note: My next battle will be July 1st.

Once again, thanks to everyone who stopped by and placed a vote.

Battle of the Bands - When I Write the Book

When I write the book about my music battles, today's date is going to have some importance.

Exactly one year ago I joined the Battle of the Bands community. I've seen members come and go, but one thing has remained constant, the battles have continued to be interesting, inspiring, informative and fun.

Special thanks go out to:
FAE / Far Away Eyes - For starting all this madness. (She has since stepped down from the music battles).
Stephen T. McCarthy - For keeping and maintaining the battles. What would we do without him?
And the Arlee Bird - Who, whether he realizes it or not, was a big encouragement for me to join in on the fun.
But! The biggest thanks goes to YOU. Without so many stopping by to listen and vote, this feature would not have lasted as long as it has.

So on to the battle!
Last year, I began my music battles with the song 'Giving It All Up For Love'. It was the version from Huey Lewis I was most familiar with but it was actually Philip Lynott's song.

This year, I decided to use Huey Lewis covering another song.
Last year, Huey failed to beat the original artist. Can he do better this year?
YOU DECIDE!


For reference only: (MY FIRST BOTB)
Huey Lewis vs Philip Lynott - Giving It All Up For Love

BATTLE OF THE BANDS
The two musical contenders for this Battle of the Bands are below.
Please listen to both and tell me who you like best.

Nick Lowe


Huey Lewis


Those are the two contenders. Ignoring the actual videos, who do you think performs the song best? I collected the two bands to battle it out, now it's your job to vote on your favourite. Please list your preferred song choice in the comments. Additionally, let me know why you feel the way you do. Voting ends on the 22nd when I'll cast my vote (if needed) and announce the winner in a separate posting.


Additional Questions for BOTBers:
What was your first music battle? Who won?
What inspired you to join?
What date/year did you join?

Additional Questions for everyone else:
Besides a wedding or birthday, what anniversary to you pay special attention to?
Have you ever considered joining BOTB? (We would love to have you).
When you hear a well known song being performed by someone else, do you immediately dislike it or do you try and give it it's own merit?

Battle of the Bands Results - I Only Want to be With You

After a half month blogging break, I came back with a battle I thought would be a lot of fun. I chose a flash-back 60's song, and it was well received. Unfortunately, my battle was not much of a battle. Once again, the votes were largely one sided.

The entire first round went completely to Nicolette Larson. Arlee, Debbie, diedre, and Mary all decided the vocals of Larson were better than the sync sound of Samantha Fox.

The second round was also quickly over. Cathy was the sole vote for Fox this round. Cherdo, eViL pOp TaRt and John sided with the first round majority.

Would the third round provide Samantha a chance to catch up? Alas, no. Another complete string of votes for Larson from Janie, Michele, Shady and Stephen.

Yes, the battle was over quickly. Even with a fourth round draw between the two performing artists, the die had been cast. Two unapologetic votes for Samantha Fox from Dixie & Guilie versus two Nicolette Larson votes from Birgit & mike. It was another landslide victory for this battle's winner.


Winners Circle
With a final score of 13-3
Congratulations to Nicolette Larson


Top Comments
Debbie D - That's a real 60's classic. I'm picking Nicolette Larson's version. Samantha Fox's techno-pop style doesn't appeal at all.

Mary Burris - I am a bit surprised at myself as I thought I would be giving my vote to Samantha Fox. but it turns out that I enjoyed Nicolette Larson just a little bit more.

eViL pOp TaRt - Dusty Sproingfield was a real talent - sorely missed! Both Samantha Fox and Nicolette Larson sound good; but I'll give my not to Nicolette. Neither really had to do cheesy covers.

Shady Del Knight -Neither version of the song presented in the contest is what I would call remarkable. Nicolette Larson has a pleasing voice but, at least on this recording, it lacks passion and fire. However, I disliked Brit girl Samantha Fox's version because it was formulaic, run-of-the-mill 80s synthpop, pretty average and ordinary.

Dixie@dcrelief -Both versions are good so this is a tough choice for me. Nicolette Larson is smooth. In fact I like her version better than Dusty's. However ( a formal word for, 'but')... I really liked the speedier version of Samantha. I'm in the minority that likes Disco... (and offer no apology.)

Guilie Castillo - I know I shouldn't, but I'm going with Samantha Fox and her disco sound. Like Dixie, I'm not going to apologize for it—although, as a rule, disco isn't one of my favorite genres, but this one won me over. It may have to do with the fact that the version of this song I know best is a cover by Mexican (well, Puerto-Rican, but he insists he's Mexican) singer Luis Miguel... We just can't get away from the 80's, can we? ;)


Please note: My next battle will be something special. Maybe not the song so much as the..... Well, just stop back on June 15th and you'll find out.

Once again, thanks to everyone who stopped by and placed a vote.

I.W.S.G. (10) - Making Time

I took the rest of May off from blogging with one goal in mind. Get more writing done! Can anyone guess how much writing I actually got done? Class, anyone? Anyone? Hardly any at all.

Why is it, I take a month off, and I still can't get any writing done? It's not like I don't want to write, I do. I'm just starting to think blogging is not the problem I have in writing. Neither is having a writer's block. I have the story I'm working on already mapped out. So why is it so hard to find time? Well, I'm not so sure that's the right question. I'm starting to think it's not making the time and sticking to the time I've mapped out. I have a hard time when a friend invites me over, or suggests we do something to tell them I've already got plan. If I tell my friends the reason is because I'm writing, I worry they will not understand I'm ditching them to do something personal. And not just something personal, but something (they think) I can just schedule any time. For the most part, I can't schedule any time. Most week nights are so full of things I need to do, I don't have much time to write. Weekends are better, but that's generally when I'm called upon to go out and do something. I need to get a better handle on this.


Goals and such:

Old Goals:
Find test readers for my story.
So far I have one person expressing interest in my YA story. The next step is now to actually follow through. If anyone else is willing to be a test writer for a YA story, let me know how I can get a hold of you to do so. I will do all I can to return the favour.
Go Blogger-lite:
I failed in this. Well, I didn't fail, but the reason for wanting to go blogger lite (get more writing done) was a failure.


New Goal:
Find a new writing schedule:
I need to find a non-negotiable time, earmarked for writing only.


My Encouragement:
The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"  - Ferris Bueller


Questions to ponder:
Am I doing myself a disservice by not sticking to personal plans?

Have you ever scheduled time to write only to do something else because someone 'requested' you to do something 'fun'?

How do you handle those situations?

I have some family/friends who don't realize how important writing is to me and act as if I'm wasting my time. How can I show them I'm serious?

Battle of the Bands - I Only Want to be With You

Firstly, I'm back! I would like to say I used the time off to get a LOT of writing done. I would LIKE to say that, but it wouldn't be true. However, I have been able to get a lot of projects done at home and I DID do a little writing. Not as much as I would have liked, however.

Secondly, I apologize for having done so many song battles in the past centred around the 80's. I endeavour to be more diverse and expansive. As such, I'm offering today a Dusty Springfield song. It's a great song from the 60's. I think you will like both versions I have provided. I was shocked to discover how many people have actually covered this song. So many in fact, it was difficult choosing the two I actually wanted to use. There were at least two other versions I was interested in using.

Anyway, I'm back as I said before. I hope you enjoy this battle!

There Was A Party At My House!

All last month, there was a party at my house. I'm speaking figuratively, of course. My House was really my blog. The Party, was the A to Z challenge. The Invitees, were you, the readers. If you have ever thrown a party, you will most likely understand why I relate the challenge to a party.

1.) THE DELIVERY
Like a person having a party, there is a lot of prep work that takes place. You have to provide entertainment and/or refreshments for all your guests. From the comments I received, I think everyone had a good time last month. My theme, (retro TV and vintage commercials) sparked interesting conversations, much nostalgia and some great fun.

2.) THE HOSPITALITY
When one throws a party, you must be a gracious host. This means, making sure everyone, (to the best of your ability), are enjoying themselves and no one has any questions or comments that need addressing. In the blogging sphere, we do this by checking out the comments left by other people. If an invited guest in your house has a question, would you ignore them? If they commend you on the party or admire your Van Gogh print, would you respond? Unfortunately, not every host of a party does this. It's understandable if you have a large party, you might not be able to get to all of the guests every day. But we should make an attempt. I made it my goal to make sure everyone felt appreciated for whatever comment they left me.

3.) LEAVE THE PLUNGER OUT
There is no worse feeling in the world than using a toilet and watching the water rise UP. But when that happens, you know what you need to do. Grab the plunger and get rid of the crap ASAP. But what if you can't find the plunger? Ever visit a blogger where the comments are abusive or spammy? Fortunately, I did not have a problem with that, but I hear some did. For whatever reason, the host of the party failed to get rid of whatever crap was on the blog. No one wants to visit a party if they are going to be abused, accused or made fun of. About the only cleaning I really had to do was deleting double postings.

4.) SEND OUT THANK YOU'S
Any time a person visits my blog, I consider it a treasure, a gift. Depending on the type of party we host at home, people may bring you a gift or present. How can we in the blogging world show we appreciate a visitor? Well, if we receive a party invitation form them, wouldn't it be a nice thing to do to visit them as well? Sure, their 'entertainment' might not be to our liking, but wouldn't it be nice to at least let them know you stopped by? You would be surprised how appreciative that would be. I made it my goal before I returned any comments on my blog, to make sure I visited their blog and see what kind of party they were throwing.

5.) THE AFTERMATH
After any party, no matter how successful or not, you feel a little relieved. Party's can be stressful for the host. It's a time to clean up and catch your breath. At times, you think to yourself, "This was fun, but I am never doing this again", only to find out you are suddenly planning the next party. Which is kind of what I am doing. I was stressed out this year because I had a lot going on. A few days in New York mid-month meant I started to fall behind. By the end of the party (challenge), I was exhausted. And yet, I've got a few ideas for what I want to do next year.

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS
Did you enjoy my party?
Did you have a favourite day?
Which of the following ideas for next year appeals to you most?

1.) Introduction to Milwaukee
2.) Board Gaming (I literally own this many board/card games.
3.) Introductions to my unpublished 'Writer's Block YA series (characters and locations)
4.) What's in my CD library? I own over 500 CD's.
5.) What am I watching? I also own a large DVD collection of TV show and films. 
6.) Group Participation Flash Fiction (I write a short story flash fiction. One short paragraph a day. At the end of the paragraph, everyone votes on how the story should proceed.
I.E. Should Ray call his shy friend 'B'etty, or his wild and crazy friend 'B'randon?
7.) PS - I'm not hard wired into any of these ideas 100% So if you have a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

Battle of the Bands Results - Talking In Your Sleep

Want to know how tired I was after the whole A to Z challenge? I was so tired, I picked two songs for the Battle of the Bands which where obviously mismatched.

Once again there were four rounds to this contest. Contest? Could I even call it that? The first round, all six vote went to Dimension X and Fotiadis.
Stopping by to vote, Arlee, Shady, Stephen, Dixie, John and Michele.

The second round the first (and only) major push for the rival Bucks Fizz. After the first two votes, they fizzled and Dimension X covered more ground.
Bucks Fizz; Birgit & Cherdo
Dimension X; Robin, Chrys & Mary

The third round was another six votes, and another spanking for Bucks Fizz
Bucks Fizz; Stephanie
Dimension X; CyborgMom, diedre, Cathy, ReinVintagedGoods & Mike

Even if the fourth and final round were to go all in favour of Bucks Fizz, they were not going to be able to pull ahead. But they might have a respectable finish. Well, they didn't. One more vote trickled in and their hopes of winning fizzled.
Bucks Fizz; FAE
Dimension X; Janie, Shelly, Pat & Debbie


Winners Circle
With a final score of 18-4

Congratulations to Dimension X / Tasos Fotiadis

Finding a decent second video from the winner was a challenge.
So here are the Romantics with another of their hits.
PS - Everyone who stopped by and left a vote, "That's What I Like About You!"

Time to get up and DANCE!!!!



Top Comments
Arlee Bird - Both of these versions stay pretty true to the original, but I think Tasos Fasiados do more with it adding a very touch of their own.

Stephen T. McCarthy - As you know, this isn't normally my kind of music, but surprisingly I kind of liked the version by Tasos Fotiadis. I felt it went on a bit too long, and I cut it off just after the 3-minute mark. But it wasn't too bad - had some oomph to it, which I can't say for the second version.

John Holton - Both of these are close to the original by The Romantics, but I liked Tasos Fotiadis's better. I think it sounded better, and while it was faithful to the original there was enough originality to it to keep it interesting.

Cherdo - You're the man, Jeffrey: hot off the A-to-Z and bam! Right back on the Battle of the Bands! Me, too, brother!
Tasos and Buck Fizz both have distinct sounds, but I'm leaning towards BUCK FIZZ for my vote. BTW, I was unfamiliar with either group, so cool!

Chrys Fey - I'm voting for Tasos. The beat was a lot of fun and I enjoyed the sound more than the other version, which was too old school for me and even a bit dull.

Mary Burris - Loved the sound of Dimension X. I recall the Romantics version, and I've always liked that one as well.

diedre Knight - And here, I thought you would mention Crystal Gale - ha! I do like the Romantics, but WOW, I really enjoyed Dimension X!

Stephanie Faris - The first video is creeping me out a little! It's hard to like anyone but The Romantics on that song, but I'll go with Bucks Fizz. Who are they anyway? They come up on SongPop and I always think they're Abba! They don't sound at all like Abba there, though.

Cathy Kennedy - Jeffrey, Great song to battle! I didn't watch the videos. The first version I thought at first I didn't like so much until after it played nearly half way through and it grew on me. Not bad at all. The second cover, the lead singer's voice didn't do too much for me and when the whole group chimed it then they reminded me a bit of Cheap Trick making their song nothing special. I flipped back to contender #1 to listen more and decided Dimension X / Tasos Fotiadis gets my vote! Cool battle!

ReInVintagedGoods - While I didn't let the visual aspects of the videos influence my vote, I fear the sound quality of the first one being better than the second may have. I prefer the Tasos version. It sounded clearer, cleaner, and better executed.

Janie Junebug - I find it difficult to ignore the videos, but I did my best. It was hard to understand Bucks Fizz, so I prefer Tasos Fasiados. They have a different touch. I know it can be difficult to find the videos you want.

Please note: I will be skipping the May 15th Battle of the Bands. I have much needed writing I need to get back to. I shall be back in June.

Once again, thanks to everyone who stopped by and placed a vote.
Come back again for a new battle June 1st
Who will you vote for?
What song will I choose?
Which artists will battle it out?
Stay tuned.
