Battle of the Bands Results: 3, 2, 1

In my last Battle of the Bands of 2019  I went with a vintage cartoon theme. Featured a vintage tune from Bo Diddley performed by a couple of vintage bands. Everything becomes vintage as time ticks away. Soon 2019 will be vintage!

                                           A bit of a cartoon for my December themes...

Bo got one, The Pretty Things got two votes, and the winner was the Rolling Stones with three.

The Rolling Stones "Baby What's Wrong"

"Roll Over Beethoven"

and for my retro mood "That Girl Belongs to Yesterday"

I will ring in the New Year with a new Battle

Merry Christmas: A Couple of Tunes

Merry Christmas! I hope yours is magical, wonderful, full of blessings and joy. This year Christmas is low key for me. However, I thought I would share a couple of Holiday songs that I have been listening to of late.

                                                Joni's "River"

"Jingle Bells in Minor Keys" AKA "Sad Jingle Bells"

Season's Greetings!

The Battle of the Bands: Road Runner

Beep! Beep! I am back for another Battle of the Band. Last time it was "Coyote" so this time Roadrunner.
                                            Theme music..

Bo Diddley "Roadrunner: is the song for today...

The Rolling Stones "Road Runner"

The Pretty Things " Road Runner"

A lot of Looney Tunes going on! You know the deal vote for the Stones or The Pretty Things in the comments and I will count up the votes before 2020.

Battle of the Bands Results: Jaco, Joni, a shutout, Coyote and no roadrunner!

On my last Battle of the Bands I tried to tip my cap to the late Jaco Pastorius.

                                            "The Chicken"

People don't cover bass players enough to work them into these battles. So I went with a song from Joni's jazz catalog. Glen Hansard may have been the bigger name but my readers liked Bailen better! Bailen won 7 to 0 with her version of "Coyote."  My next Battle will probably be Roadrunner! Might as will get some Looney Tunes in here. 

Bailen "I Was Wrong"

Well I will be back soon with my next Battle of the Bands later today. I am not doing the Christmas thing on my blog this year so if you want a break from the Holiday Music come visit!

Battle of the Bands: Coyote

As promised I moved away from  Montrose. In honor of the late Jaco Pastorius birthday, I thought I would pull a song from Joni Mitchell's jazz years. Jaco is the bass player on the song..."Coyote"

Contender One: Bailen

Contender Two: Glen Hansard

If you like contrasts I have a few on this one. Female Vs Male vocals. Full band vs stripped down singer guitar. Vote for the one you like the best in the comments.
