It's time to announce the winner in my September 1 Battle of the Bands.
The song is Summertime. The contenders are Janis Joplin and Billie Holiday.
At first the two were neck and neck. At one point, they were tied. Then Billie pulled ahead to whip Janis's butt.
Billie Holiday 15
Gosh, Janis's vote resembles the way math nerds write 78, but I assure you, Billie won. Janis had seven votes. I crossed out the seven when I gave her my vote (she suffered from low self-esteem and I wanted to help), so now she has eight to Billie Holiday's fifteen.
Although Billie won, I request that Janis sing us out because I want to write a post one of these days about Billie and a famous song for which she was was known.
Thanks for listening and voting. I'll have another battle on September 15.
Infinities of love,
