Welcome to my first Battle of the Bands for 2017. Most of you were on the ball and started Jan. 1, but I was goofing off with hubby and the dogs. Here’s to another great year of music!
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week. (See below for further details.)
♫ Waxing nostalgic for this one! ♫
HOLDING ON TO YESTERDAY
“When time seems to pass slowly, later we often wonder how quick it was after that time has passed. No matter how hard we might try, we cannot cling to the moments other than in memory, which often is unreliable. Did things really happen the way we remember? If indeed we remember at all…” So true, Arlee!
Here we go……
Note: There was no video available for Rick Springfield, so I’m using audio files this time.
If they don’t work, please try a different browser. Some people had problems with the second one.
Ambrosia is an American rock band. Formed in southern California in 1970, they had five Top 40 hit singles on Warner Bros. Records between 1975 and 1980. Most of the original band members have been active with the group continuously for the past 25 years. “Holding on to Yesterday”, written by band members David Pack and Joe Puerta, was the third track from their debut album, “Ambrosia”, released in February 1975. It was a Top 20 hit for 14 weeks.
Rick Springfield (born Richard Lewis Springthorpe; 23 August 1949) is an Australian musician, singer, songwriter, actor and author. “Holding on to Yesterday” is the 6th track from his 14th studio album, “The Day After Yesterday”, released in July 2005, which was mostly a compilation of cover songs.
