SITS Spring Fling

Edited to add: Contest now closed. Go here to see the winners. Thanks to everyone who participated, especially those of you who shared your favourite cover songs!

Spring is coming! Or has it already arrived where you live? It's on it's way here - things are starting to warm up a bit, but it hasn't yet begun officially - it was snowing yesterday. Of course, it begins officially next week on the 21st.

In honour of spring SITS is having a party today - a giveaway each hour at the SITS homepage and a Mr. Linky to all the SITStah's giveaways as well. Yay.

I'm giving away some Lulu's Hook Earrings:

Cherry Earrings


Love and Death Earrings


The giveaway is open to everyone. Leave a comment and share your favourite cover song (because I love cover songs) and let me know which set of earrings you want. I'll draw for the winner when Spring Fling is over and email the winners (so make sure I have your email address). Good luck everyone!

And happy Spring Fling!

The Love & Death earrings are gorgeous... cover song? I like Brookes & Dunn's version of My Maria... and I don't really care for country music OR cover songs - lol - but they did a great job on that one!

April said...

OK...I'm a Tim McGraw fan, so I love "Live Like You Were Dying". Love those earrings! Happy Spring Fling!

Rachel F said...

I love both sets, but I guess if I had to I'd pick cherry. Gorgeous work on both, though!
My favorite cover? Either Springsteen's live version of Tom Waits' "Jersey Girl" or The Wallflowers doing "Heroes"

Janelle said...

Without a doubt, my favorite cover is Suzy Bogguss singing "If You Leave me Now" by Chicago. I can't even listen to the original anymore!!!

Carla said...

Add me in! Thanks SITSta! (I like the cherry ones)

Jen said...

OMG. I am so bad when someone asks me a question like this. But then it'll hit me days later. I guess I have too many. Maybe I will say Brown Eyed Girl. Thanks for popping by!!

I'm really loving those Love & Death earrings!

A cover that I really like: John Mayer singing "Free Falling". Fabulous!

Mimi said...

I'm dying over the love & death earrings!

I just heard a cover of George Harrisons "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" done by Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne with Prince tearing up the guitar. It was done at a "Tribute to George" concert.

Joelle said...

I love the Love and Death Earrings!

My favorite cover song at the moment is Britney's My Perogative... I know its terrible but I can't lie. Tomorrow it could be different.

pam said...

So pretty. Cover songs are always fun. Please enter me in your draw:)

B said...

Cover song? That's tough since I'm mostly into jazz and I believe the cover is hardly ever the best.

And I think you have my email, but you know how to find me anyways.

Chrissy said...

I have to steal this one...Brown Eyed Girl...I always love that song... And the Love and Death Earrings are so pretty!

Sharlene said...

erin said...

Those Cherry Earrings are adorable.

Favorite cover song? Hmmm... I can't think of one. :(

Happy Spring Fling.

Jackie said...

Thanks so much for the giveaway! I have no preference on the earrings, I really like them both.
As for the cover song...I have to admit I am more of a radio person. And I listen to my teens music coming from their rooms.

Wolf said...

is it bad that i don't know cover songs? i barely listen to music...:(

Rachel said...

I love both pairs!

I love so many cover songs, let's see...

I love "I Will Survive" by Cake... Also, "Across the Universe" by Fiona Apple. I have to agree with Sharlene on Sinead O'Connor, though, too! Too many faves to pick just one!

Tulsi said...

I like the visual way you put them together.

Christina said...

Christina - xristya@rock.com - I love the Love And Death earrings, and it's clever how each can be different but they still match! As to a song, I've always liked "Brown-Eyed Girl" - such a happy song about happy times - and I know lots of bands do it as a cover!
