First off, the BotB results should have been posted on the 8th, but I forgot that that fell on a Saturday that I was out of town. And is’t really even somewhat of a miracle that this even got posted at all. I stepped into the shower at about 10pm, after my four hour trip home, and promptly managed to get some of the fancy tea tree oil shampoo my sweet Mama gifted me into my eyes. I spoke in tongues. I saw undiscovered colors. My eyes have never felt so fresh or clean! Unfortunately, it didn’t clear up my vision. And the shower happened after Ari lost his mind after being let out of his kennel.
I’m now 1-1 for battles My first battle back I would consider a success, with the winner only winning by one vote. This most recent one? Not so much. I put covers of Rod Stewart’s “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” by Vanilla Fudge and Revolting Cocks against one another, and if not for ONLY ONE VOTE, this winner would have won by a shutout.
VANILLA FUDGE stomped the living hell out of RevCo, and then used them to clean up the mess they left on the floor. I kind of figured Vanilla Fudge would win, and while I really like their version, I LOVED RevCo’s. It’s one of my favorite cover songs. I also learned two other things:
- Many of you did not like this song to begin with, and…
- Many, if not all of you, do NOT think Rod Stewart is sexy. I didn’t ask, but this is till good info to know, yes?
As an interesting aside to this whole battle, Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge’s drummer) also worked for Rod Stewart’s band and co-wrote this song.
Now…onto Music Monday.
It’s freebie week over at Monday’s Music Moves Me, so in honor of a newly reunited and touring (September 20 in Atlanta – I plan on being there!) My Chemical Romance, here they are with “Helena”
