Before I pull the lever and let this BOTB installment dangle, I have a li'l sumpin' to say:
We have three new 'Battle Of The Bands' participants joining us beginning with this May 15th round. I'm pleased to introduce, present and announce DEBBIE D. from the blog 'THE DOGLADY'S DEN', CHERDO from the blog 'CHERDO ON THE FLIPSIDE', and MICHELE TRUHLIK from the blog 'ANGELS BARK'. Please be sure to visit them and make them feel welcome. (And if any of them ever uses a Tiny Tim song, make certain you report that to me ASAP so I can take immediate action against them;-)
Alright, let’s get on it...
|EUGENE MARTONE VS. JACK BUTLER|
And now for something completely different, as promised (or threatened). Some of you will remember when I BOTBed Tiny Tim versus Richard Cheese in a "Lounge showdown". They were doing different songs ('Stairway To Heaven' and 'Another Brick In The Wall'), so instead of the SONG being the common denominator, it was actually the "Lounge" style that provided the theme of that contest.
This time, just for the halibut ("No anchovies, please!"), I'm again using two different songs, rather than the traditional "same song, two different artists" approach. There IS a method to my madness, although it won't be readily apparent. It's not like I've just randomly chosen two songs and put them up against each other. No, sir, there's a "theme" here - there's a reason I've selected these two particular songs and artists, and I will explain the hidden meaning behind it when I post my own vote and the final results in this blog bit's comment section on May 21st. (If anyone already knows WHY I'm using these two songs against each other, you may say you know the secret, but please don't let the cat out of the bag. Please let me do that on the 21st. Thanks!)
The idea for this BOTB match-up came to mind about 2 or 3 days after I moved to Reno. I'll 'splain that when I cast my vote and announce the winner.
After this 'Battle Of The Bands' installment, I will be going back to the regular
|GOODNIKS VS. NO-GOODNIKS|

After voting here, I suggest - actually I insist - you pop over to the blogs of the other 'BATTLE OF THE BANDS' participants to see which songs they have chosen and vote there also. (If their ‘BOTB’ blog bits aren’t posted yet, pour yourself two shots of ‘Grand Marnier’ over ice – do it twice – and then return to their blogs to
