This is the battle we’ve all been waiting for. To recap: My friend Mary (from Jingle Jangle Jungle) and I teamed up on putting together this fun Dog v Cat Battle of the Bands Tournament. It’s been so much fun and hopefully you’ve had a chance to check it out. But if not, no worries! You can still play in this very exciting AND HISTORICAL event!
After weeks of battles choosing best Dog songs and best Cat songs in the categories of Hard and Soft Rock, we had Playoffs to determine which song was going to Represent going into the Championship Battle. And now we are here with the exciting finish.
Last month’s mid-month battle of the bands was the Final Playoff to choose the Dog song going into the Superbowl of Championship Battles. And at Mary’s place (Jingle Jangle Jungle) was the Playoff to choose the Cat song to send to this Grand Finale.
Here voters had an opportunity to vote for either the hard-rock Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog” or the soulful soft pop by Marvin Gaye, “I’ll Be Doggone”.
It was a super tight race and tied all the way up to the very end, when two votes came in, pushing Led Zeppelin over the finish line. The final playoff tally was 8-6. (FYI: I voted for Marvin Gaye’s song). So the NDC (National Dog Conference) is sending hard rock winner “BLACK DOG” to today’s big Battle Championship!
So just what Cat song is our Dog champ going up against? Mary’s NCC (National Cat Conference) Playoff winner is the beloved “CATS IN THE CRADLE” by Harry Chapin.
SO THIS IS IT! It’s time for the knock-down drag-out battle between CANINE and FELINE. Who will be the reigning victor of the first ever DOG v CAT BATTLE OF THE BANDS TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP??
It’s in your hands People! Are you a dog person or a cat person? LET’S HEAR FROM YOU!!!
And now, without further ado, Let’s Battle!
BLACK DOG by Led Zeppelin
CATS IN THE CRADLE by Harry Chapin
