As is my usual custom here of late, I am off to a bit of a late start on Music Monday, and certainly off to a late start on announcing a winner for the Battle of the Bands for 3.15.15. But I just got back from a quick trip back home to visit the folks and hopefully start getting a feel for my future home (more on that another time), and prior to that worked seven days in a row, the last two of which were doubles. I am beginning to think my schedule may always be something like this, but I'm not going to complain. I need every cent I can earn from my job! So first up will be the BotB winner...
As for me and my vote, I ultimately preferred Grateful Dead's laid-back, jam band version of Iko Iko to Dr. John's jazz, but ONLY by a slight margin. Unfortunately, my vote wasn't enough to even tie my favorite with the other contender, so Dr. John won by a wider margin of 4-6 including my vote. Don't forget to come back for another Battle of the Bands on April 1!Moving on to today's Music Monday...you might have already guessed, but this is just some random music heard during the drive over and back...some of it on my iPhone set to random, and some of it from radio. This should go without saying, but no need to listen to them all unless you just want to and have the time to do so. But if something new intrigues you, by all means go for it!
Van Halen - "Ice Cream Man"
Shinedown - "Unity"
Slipknot - "Custer" (Warning: Language)
Thirty Seconds To Mars - "R-Evolve"
Sublime - "Caress Me Down"
