Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

It's after 6:30 p.m., and I woke up about thirty minutes ago. I'm a day tripper .  . . no, really, a day sleeper.

I had to search for my slippers when I got up. Franklin is a slipper sneak. One slipper was on the deck, and the other was in the yard.

Our March 1, 2016, Battle of the Bands song is The Star-Spangled Banner. Our contenders are the late Whitney Houston and the current Lady Gaga.

And now, the moment you've all be waiting for:

Whitney Houston  14
Lady Gaga            16

I voted for Lady Gaga, but she would have won anyway. I've watched her performance at the Academy Awards for the past week, and liquid leaks out of my eyes every time. 

These ladies are so great that I think we should have an additional performance from each of them.

Here's Whitney Houston with her first international hit, Saving All My Love for You:

Lady Gaga from the 2016 Academy Awards with the Oscar nominated "Til It Happens To You":

I'm late with The Question of the Month. I'll try to get to it tomorrow.

I feel so good about sharing Whitney Houston and Lady Gaga with you.

God bless you all.

Infinities of love,

Janie Gaga


  1. Seems like a close one. I'm sorry, I could never get into Whitney Houston :(

  2. I missed Lady Gaga's Superbowl performance, but did catch her at the Oscars. I still remember Whitney's Star-spangled Banner all those years ago.

  3. That Oscar performance was a daring one even by her standards. She held nothing back. Impressive.

  4. That was an excellent match-up. Very balanced.

  5. They are both great singers! Or were, in poor Whitney's case.

  6. I do like Lady Gaga, but I should have voted for Whitney twice.

  7. Glad Lady Ga-Ga won. Her voice is better and yes, she was amazing at the Oscars and I was shocked that that piece of schlock won over this amazing song. I still don't get it.

  8. So Gaga eeked out the win! :)
    I hadn't heard her song "Till it happens to you" and having been raped it was quite powerful for me.

  9. What a close battle. That's what it's all about. That and selecting the winner, which I didn't. :(
    Oh well, there is always next time.
    I like both singers.

  10. That sure was a close battle! Both ladies are deserving and I had a hard time choosing. Looks like I picked the wrong one. Thanks for the videos. Gaga was great!

  11. Talented ladies, either one winning would have been a-okay with me.

  12. I'm glad my dog doesn't steal my shoes. He does steel the flattened cereal boxes so he can to rip them apart in the hopes a crumb has been left. Or the paper towels occasionally though I honestly have no idea why since there's no food to be have from a fresh roll.
