Duh! Of course Monday comes after the weekend is over. What's so great about Monday? It's opening day for A to Z sign-ups!! Are you ready to get your name high on the list? Actually it doesn't matter where you are on the list just so you're on it. You'll have two months to decide, but get on early and you can start socializing with the others who have joined in early. Jump in soon and start spreading the word about April! For more information about what I'm talking about please visit the Blogging from A to Z Challenge Blog.
Battle of the Bands Results
The results are in for my Battle of the Bands of January 15th. My 3 way contest experiment went better than I expected. Several of you did watch the long video of the Dames version of "I Only Have Eyes for You" and that version, which is where my vote went, ended up with an admirable 11 votes.
The jazz version by Chris Connor and Maynard Ferguson was appreciated by many but still only got 4 votes.
The winner--and not really a surprise--was the Flamingos version which ran away with 25 votes. This is the version that most of us are more familiar hearing and it is a pretty great version of the song.

Next Battle of the Bands will be on Sunday February 1st. My next round will be similar to this last one. And I'll be celebrating a birthday with my next Battle. No, not my birthday which will be next Friday, but an artist connected to the song I'll be pitting in Battle celebrates his birthday on February 1st. I'll be once again including a third bonus version of said song along with another movie clip. It's a good one I assure you. It's a big classic song so I can't imagine that there is anyone who hasn't heard it.
