It’s the 30th of August and not the 1st of September, but it’s time to post another BATTLE OF THE BANDS. Stephen T. McCarthy and I decided to post this one a little early because of the holiday weekend and the fact that lucky dog, gets to take a little trip.
Anyway…as usual I’m caught with my pants down (not literally) and am a day late and a dollar short (literally) again. (Two clichés in one sentence, well slap my hand.)
So, let’s get on with it.
Today I’ve chosen a ‘show tune’. This one from a Broadway play titled ‘A Little Night Music’. The production wasn’t particularly memorable but the song was, at least I guess it was because it sure got a lot of covers. I wasn’t sure exactly who to pit against each other but I decided to let ‘the ladies’ wrestle it out.
Let’s ‘Send in the Clowns’
First up. Judy
Next Barbra (even thought this woman can’t spell her name correctly, she achieved fame at a certain, shall we say, infamy)
OK, now you know what to do and where to do it. Start here and then go on over to Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends the home of the handsome Stephen T. McCarthy and Tossing It Out the home of the ever popular Arlee Bird and vote there also. Check the comment boxes of each official participant and see who else is posting a ‘BATTLE’ this week (it seems a lot of people are jumping on this war wagon).
Just so you know here are the rules that will govern the prizes included in this contest.

Here’s The Deal: By voting on the ‘Battle Of The Bands’ blog bits here and at the ‘Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends’ blog, you can win the compact disc of your choice. Every 4 months, Stephen and I will add up how many times you voted on our blogs, and the person who has participated most often (i.e., submitted the most eligible votes) will get to select one compact disc that contains any one of the songs that were included in either of our ‘Battle Of The Bands’ installments (“Super-Colossal” expensive boxed-sets, imports, and ‘out-of-print’ compact discs not included). In the event of a tie, the names will be put in a Stetson and the name drawn from the cowboy hat will win the CD.
Rules For Voting: Stephen and I post new ‘Battle Of The Bands’ blog bits on the 1st and 15th of each month. We also post our own personal votes for the respective blog bits on the 7th and 21st of each month (i.e., six days later). For your vote to be counted, it must be submitted in our comment sections BEFORE we post our own votes (BEFORE we make our own votes known on the 7th and the 21st).
Every 4 months there will be a new compact disc winner. In other words, ‘Battle Of The Bands’ #1 was posted on August 1, 2013, so at the end of November, one of you lucky voters is going to win a CD that includes one of the songs we’ve featured in our ‘Battle Of The Bands’ installments (you get to choose, and it doesn’t matter if the song won or lost its battle – if you like it, it’s YOURS!)
Alright, now... VOTE ON and ROCK ON! (while we ‘Count On...’)
