GIVEAWAY!! Where have all the good men gone...




And where are all the gods?
Where's the streetwise Herucles, to fight the rising odds?

Yes, my friends, I've had that song stuck in my head for about a week now. "Holding out for a Hero". Not even the original Bonnie Tyler version, but a cover by Emery (which amuses me greatly, as it's a guy singing about needing a hero...haha!), and every single time I hear it, I picture the Fairy Godmother from Shrek 2 singing it in that red sparkly dress, which just adds to the hilarity. But I digress.

I'm addicted to cover songs. Any song that anyone sings that was originally someone else's song makes me happy (quite a sentence there, eh?). Because of this, I decided that the theme of my first giveaway from my Lolita Rose shop would be... Cover Songs.

So, on with the contest!
Rules:
-Leave a comment here or convo me through Etsy with the name of your favorite cover song, the band who originally sang it, and the band who covered it.
-Tell me your name and Etsy shop name (or if you don't have an Etsy, then just your name).
-Contest begins like, now, and ends at noon, EDT on Monday, April 6th.

What you could win:
-One of the items pictured above. There will be THREE winners. (Provided enough people respond, of course).
-I will then name three of my pieces after the chosen songs, crediting the winners (with their shop names) in the item listing (exposure for your shop! yay!).

How will you win?:
-I will put your names in a hat (or other receptacle) and choose randomly.

Let the games begin =)

Ok... I have to admit it... My favorite cover might actually be the Snoop Doggy Dogg (or however he calls himself) of "Gin and Juice". Originally by "The Gourds"

OK, one of my favorite covers is "Time of the Season" by the Zombies that was later redone by soap opera star Michael Damian. It was wonderfully terrible...I also think Tom Jones should cover every song ever made :)

I like Marilyn Manson's cover of Sweet Dreams (are made of this) It was originally done by the eurethmics wayyy back when. I'm not sure which one I like more.

A cover song......jeez Im the wrong person for this.I can remember all the words to a song, but when it comes to the name of the song or the artist I draw a blank.

There was this one song, an oldie, that was made into a techno version for a car commercial, that was fantastic....what the hell was it.. I want to say Vega or Vegas, but that is probably way off...hmm, I will ask my husband later and come back if I can think of that damn song.
