Sine it’s late Monday afternoon here and I didn’t sleep very well last night, I’m going to keep this to the point.
A couple of weeks ago, the prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday was “eco.” My post was about words that contain, but don’t start with, “eco,” the last one being “zydeco.” Kip commented with this video of Buckwheat Zydeco doing a song called “(Don’t Mess With) My Toot-Toot.”
I looked at YouTube and saw that it was covered a number of times since Sidney Simien, a/k/a Rockin’ Sidney, wrote and recorded it back in 1984. So today, I’ve picked a couple of covers of the song as contestants for this week’s battle.
CONTESTANT #1: Denise LaSalle
CONTESTANT #2: John Fogerty
So, those are the contestants, and you know what to do: listen to both versions of the song (Buckwheat’s is not a contestant), decide which you like better, and vote for it by leaving a comment below. Optionally (but I’m sure most veterans of the BotB do it anyway), tell us what it was about that version you liked so well, or at least in preference to the other. Then, go visit Stephen T. McCarthy’s Battle of the Bands blog, where he has a list in the right-hand column of all the current participants, visit those bloggers, and vote in their battles, presuming they’re holding one today. I’ll tally the votes and announce the winner next Monday, so be sure and vote by then.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Denise and John!
