It's time for the November 1, 2015, Battle of the Bands.
Mr. Stephen T. McCarthy provides us with this information about the bloghop:
The whole thing is really quite simple: You select two different versions of the same song (versions you feel might give each other some competition in the voting) and you post them on the 1st and the 15th of each month. On the 7th and 21st of each month, you add your own personal vote to the mix, total up all the votes and announce the winner on your blog.
Beyond that, just try to have fun with it and let your readers/voters have fun with it.
All righty, then. Let's have fun! Our song is Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
Our first competitor in the battle is Israel, a.k.a. IZ. If this video doesn't relax you, then I don't know what will.
Our second competitor, Katharine McPhee, brings her own beautiful sound to the battle. McPhee sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow on American Idol.
Which version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow do you prefer? In your comment, please vote for IZ or Katharine McPhee. On November 7, I'll tell you the winner.
And don't call the phone number to vote for Katharine. She's not on American Idol now. That was years ago.
I look forward to seeing your choices.
Infinities of love,
P.S. The obvious winner of this battle is Judy Garland. Because she sang the definitive version, she's not one of the competitors. When I announce the winner, I'll share some Judy with you.
