BATTLE OF THE BREAKFAST BANDS – WHERE THERE ARE NO RULES. ONLY TWO BANDS. AND BREAKFAST.

Anything out of the ordinary?:

Many think fall is one of the best times of year.

Carmel Apple season!

Ok, joking.

But really the best part about fall is Halloween!

My daughter’s anticipation for trick or treating doesn’t hold a jack-o-lantern’s candle to Christmas morning. She even has more then one costume picked for different parties.

Her parents? Well, we adults are allowed to let loose while being ironic, current  or sexy with our costume selection.  “Sexy” Wal*Mart Greeter, anyone?

With thoughts of candy, pumpkins and Wal*Mart in my head, I’m ready for a Halloween-themed breakfast battle.

***

What I ate: A bagel sandwich (w/ egg and cheese); one banana; and three cups of black coffee. Tomorrow morning I’ll be adding two Kit Kats, three Snickers, and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup from my kids’ candy haul. Sorry girls, gotta share with dad.

Facing Off:  Jamie T’s “Zombie” vs. Groovie Ghoulies’ “Trick or Treat”

***

Band Selection Rationale:  Both are good bands singing great Halloween songs. “Zombie” is an original tune; “Trick or Treat” is a Chuck Berry cover.

Groovie Ghoulies

Winner: Jamie T, “Zombie”

***

Why:

It’s a bummer Groovie Ghoulies aren’t a band anymore, they were a pop punk wonder. And their song “Trick or Treat” is not only appropriate for the holiday, but also very fun.

Still, I can’t stop listening to Jamie T’s “Zombie.” It’s a terrific song and will no doubt be a Halloween anthem soon enough.

Not sure if English folky punk boy Jamie T is big in the U.S. yet… but he will be.

It’s one invasion we should all welcome.

Happy Halloween! Go forth, enjoy the night and be cautiously “sexy.”
