Ha! No-one plays a Gibson SG like Angus. 

Back when Phil Rudd looked young. 

Wonder how they got the church. Maybe the priest was away that day.

WOW, I see three potential golds here, so this is a tough week

Gold - Queen - Queen's first five albums (this song is from their 5th), they were tough to beat.  Brilliant.  

Silver - The Beach Boys - By a hair.  This would be gold most weeks.  

Bronze - AC/DC - Another one that might qualify for gold some weeks, but just too much competition here.  

Tin - Stray Cats - These guys were alright.

wow, I see 3 potential Tins...tough week!

1)  "I'm Waiting for the Day" by Brian & the boys


          2) gosh.   well, let's come back to that...

4)  I can do 4th: "AC/DC"     with the effeminate uh toughness familiar to fatty guys in gay leather bars

            2 and 3...  the aristocratic Queen with a song not as good as 'Bohemian Rhapsody' or ...well, I never had 'cat class' or 'cat style'. 

so...I'll make 2nd and 3rd place---ties. 

but on a brighter note, always liked 'Fox on the Run'.!   only once I saw them live, opening for Cheap Trick, and my friend and I yelled for 'Little Willie' and the band told us to kiss their bleeps.  True story.  So I thought, geez, why is 'Fox on the Run' cool, but 'Little Willie' embarrassing?  Aren't they the same thing?  but it occurred to me, this was when Sweet were trying to reinvent themselves with 'Love is Like Oxygen' as kind of a Queen sort of band.  Maybe they thought Little Willie was too bubblegum for their current mediocre middle of the road genre they had chosen to copy... ?

Jenny, I'll go with:

Gold:  Somebody To Love/Queen.  My favorite song by them!

Silver:  I'm Waiting For the Day/Beach Boys.  Nice one from the legendary Pet Sounds album!

Bronze:  Stray Cat Strut/Stray Cats.  A nice and bouncy one.

Tin/Pewter:  For Those About To Rock/AC/DC.  Not a fan.  Most of their songs sound the same in music, just changed the words.  

My final answer.

Cindy

It's been a while since Buzz has been let out of his cage.  I'd head he fell in love with an electric wheelchair and moved to Sweden.

All this early AC/DC made me want to dig out more.

"Baby Please Don't Go".  



"School Days".  (Yes, the Chuck Berry song)



And we cannot overlook another Brian.  Brian Griffin.

AC/DC with Brian Johnson are great in their own right.  But they were something special with Bon.

Isn't it fair to say that ACDC is to rock n roll, what Jack Black is to acting?

Brian's it is!

Tough one to vote.

Gold to Freddy and Brian and company. Check out the sing-ability, after the GREAT piano part.  It's more Freddy but check out the B. May performance first! 








Silver to our Brian: 

At the R and R HOF, when they had the BB's feature downstairs, there was a 1963 radio sheet with I'm Waiting For The Day written on it.  Copyrighted in early 64, it does pre-date the Pet Sounds material.  Mike does get his writing credit here.

Bronze:  Stray cattin' It's coolsville.


Tin:  Still cool (but I wasn't into these guys) Back In Black album was a biggun

Far be it from me to rock the BOTB boat, but one thing the BOTB lacks is a suggestion box. How about a thread called "Suggestions" that could be used for things like:

(1) People offering suggestions for topics or songs that might be used in the battle?

(2) People asking for assistance, e.g. "I have three songs that involve someone named Brian. I won't tell you which ones, but can anyone suggest one or two good ones I might use?"

Must hosts go it alone? Would having suggestions make it easier for some people to host?


Meanwhile, two New Jersey Turnpike selections from Brian's solo career, i.e. the Gershwin album:

"I Got Rhythm"


"Someone To Watch Over Me"



Also: #20 in the US and #23 in Australia in 1966: Brian Hyland, "The Joker Went Wild" (featuring dancing in black and white)

I assure you that I am quite capable of hosting on my own. If you have a problem with that, then feel free to refrain from participating in my week. If you feel the need to make adjustments to my theme or choose an entirely different one, do that in your own week instead of wasting space on my thread. I don't have time to read petty complaints regarding a theme that others and myself find perfectly suitable. We all have different tastes in music, and this theme is an example of that as it deals with various types of songs. Just because you happen to have a certain idea of what good quality music is doesn't mean anybody else's idea is wrong. Opinion, that means yours as well, is not fact.

I think Brian Johnson was a fine choice.  The man might might be blessed with the best voice in the world, but what a perfect replacement for Bon

The internet can be difficult terrain at times.

I assure you that I am quite capable of hosting on my own. -- Didn't say otherwise, nor imply it.

If you have a problem with that -- Didn't say I did.

feel free to refrain from participating in my week. -- Of course

If you feel the need to make adjustments to my theme -- I thought your theme was perfectly fine.

wasting space on my thread -- gosh. Here I thought I was just participating, with a thought that might add to people's enjoyment of the battle as an institution.

I don't have time to read petty complaints regarding a theme that others and myself find perfectly suitable. -- Nor would I.

We all have different tastes in music -- yes

this theme is an example of that as it deals with various types of songs. -- of course. I love how various types of songs appear on the battle and have been known to post a few of them myself.

Just because you happen to have a certain idea of what good quality music is doesn't mean anybody else's idea is wrong. -- Good and wrong are subjective. Couldn't agree more.

Opinion, that means yours as well, is not fact. -- Although some opinions are better than others, in my opinion.

At this point, I regret that I brought up the idea of suggestions during your week. It only came to mind because you mentioned having trouble picking a fourth Brian. I've had trouble picking songs and themes myself many times -- correction, every time -- and wouldn't have minded someone making a helpful suggestion. In fact, having a thread that allowed people to discuss possible themes and songs could very well be an enjoyable addition to this sub-forum, and even encourage more people to participate.

Brian Bromberg, "Full Circle"



PS -- I had to go back and see how I voted earlier this week. I quite liked three of the songs and hated the singing on the fourth one.
