Stuck No Longer--Unleash the #BOTB Winner!

      No A to Z on Sunday, but still I'm posting.  Today I've got the results for my most recent Battle of the Bands.

Battle of the Bands

Stuck in the Middle with You

       In the middle of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge which falls in the middle of the month seemed like an ideal time to revisit the Stealer's Wheel song "Stuck in the Middle" using two quite different remakes.  For reference you can find this Battle on my last Sunday post of April 15th.

         My reaction to this Battle between the mellow sounds of Jodi Pederson and the hiccuppy bouncy Frantic Flintstones was that Jodi gave a pleasant listenable performance which was my favorite at first.   But then after several listens, like happened with some of the voters, I began to prefer the Frantic Flintstones.   Jodi was off to a good start early on in the contest, but the wave for Frantic Flintstones swept through and gave them a decisive win.

Final Vote Tally

Jodi Pederson                  5 votes

Frantic Flintstones         12 votes

Next Battle of the Bands on Tuesday May 1st.  Since I've got just about a week of A to Z to post and I'm still writing those posts, I have no thoughts about my next Battle.  Guess you will have to find out then what song I'll be using next.   The Battle will happen since it is one of my favorite things.

        Are you ready for the upcoming summer months?    Any vacation plans for this year?   When in your life have you felt most stuck in the middle of your situation?  


  1. In was torn between the two versions but opted for the loser.
    Being stuck in the middle is my life these past few years, Oh for the joy of travelling to return.......but it will you see.


  2. Fun battle! I like the song

  3. Two good versions of a really fun, terrific song. I'd call that "a good Battle" regardless of the somewhat one-sided outcome.

    Lee, I don't know yet what my May 1st Battle will be, either. But you and I have so many potential contests already in mind (if not on paper and in computer files, too) that there's never any worries about it.

    We may not really be prepared for what's up around the bend in life, but you and I are both always prepared for the next BOTB date, regardless of which direction we may decide to go in.

    See ya then...

  4. We are going to see our grandkids in OH in a couple of weeks for a few days. So far that's all we have planned.

  5. Great battle!
