Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
The song for the October 15 Battle of the Bands was The Ipanemic Girl (I made that up; I think it sounds like a freaky disease), and the contenders were Amy Winehouse and Nat King Cole.
I thought Nat would run away with the battle, as did Favorite Young Man and some of you who said so in your comments. Nat did indeed win, but it was close.
Amy Winehouse 11
Nat King Cole 13
Amy's count includes my own vote because I wanted to bring her a wee bit closer to Mr. Smooth. I love Nat King Cole. He was such a stylist.
But sad Amy has my heart.
Thanks to all of you who voted. I love your comments.
Amy, you may have lost this battle, but will you please sing us out?
Infinities of love,
