I was going to use Michael Johnson’s “Bluer Than Blue” a couple of weeks ago, then found several songs with that name on YouTube and thought “Looks like a Battle of the Bands to me!” So here we go…
Johnson releaseed this in 1978 and reached #1 on the US and Canadian Adult Contemporary charts, #12 on the Hot 100, and #6 on the RPM pop singles chart.
Peaches & Herb
Herb Fame and Linda Greene reached #45 on the R&B chart with this in 1981.
Lil Hardin Armstrong
Pianist, singer, composer and orchestra leader Lil Hardin Armstrong was the second wife of Louis Armstrong, with whom she made a number of records in the 1920’s as members of King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band. This is from 1937.
Those are the contestants. Here are your instructions:
- Listen to the three songs.
- Decide which song you like the best.
- Vote for your favorite by leaving me a comment with your choice. If you feel like telling us why, feel free.
- Then, visit the other participants and vote in their Battles:
I’ll announce the winner next Monday, June 22, so be sssure and get your vote to me by then.
The lines are now open. Good luck to Michael, Peaches & Herb, and Lil!
