Sorry I never made it back over here with a Music Monday post. More estate stuff cropped up the has me nearly crippled with anxiety and so frustrated I feel like I could snap at any moment and be Michael Douglas in Falling Down. (Fun fact: I was living near Lynwood, CA at the time this was being filmed. Of course, I knew nothing about it, but it’s still a fun fact. Right?) Maybe I’ll get a chance to write about this later. This isn’t the post for it, but I absolutely must purge it all, and soon. I feel ill, and it should be illegal to make families jump through so many damned hoops just to get what is actually theirs. I’ll just leave that there, and maybe pick it up when I’ve had a minute to calm down.
So, my return to the Battle of the Bands was so much fun! I chose covers of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Bad Moon Rising” by The Killers and Ann Wilson featuring Gretchen Wilson. They were completely different than one another, with The Killers having a sound more similar to CCR than Ann and Gretchen’s bluegrass-y version. I almost had to step in as a tie-breaker, but in the end, The Killers took it by ONE VOTE. One vote; that’s all! And those are the best battles, IMO. I really had no idea which way this one was going to go.
Thanks so much to all who stopped by, listened, voted, and welcomed me back! I haven’t decided yet if I’ll be doing battles both times of the month, but I’m definitely going to come back on February 1 to see how that goes.
