Good thinking Brenda.  I agree that everyone should continue on with the lyrics.

Thanks Mike for another fun project.  All winners in my book just for doing it.

Congrats to all and thanks to all who took the time to vote.

James.

All I can say is WOW! WOW!  Thanks to everyone who voted.  I am humbled.  First time I have ever had a part in winning a TSF contest.  I guess third time's a charm.  But, it wouldn't have happened without Danny doing those outstanding vocals and putting his special touch on it.  Also, congratulations to everyone else who entered.  Everybody's a winner in my book for entering.  And, most of all thanks to Mike for giving us that outstanding melody.  Now, since he is gonna be the co-writer on the finished song, maybe he can finish the lyrics as well.  Time to sit back and enjoy a good cup of coffee. Hey what happend to the coffee smiley?

Thanks to all who voted.  I can only say that I love this bunch of folks, and hanging out with ya'll.  Congrats to all.  Roy, you give me way too much credit, sir.

Thanks again, Mike, for another great contest.

I had better get back to work now, before I get fired.  LOL.

Well done to everybody and congratulations to Roy and Danny, great job.

What intrigued me was how much consensus there was in the voting. It was quite clearcut at all levels. I'm sure that made Mike's life easier.

I share everyone's wish that all the songs go on to be completed. Good fun! :)

Congratulations Roy and Danny !!!!

You both did a terrific job!!!!  Proud of you, boys!!!

And, Mike, I liked that melody from the git-go, it was winner right from the start.

 

I think everyone did an absolute bang-up job on all the entries.... and I, like the rest, would love to hear completed versions of each song. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!!!!:clappingface

Well this is the songwriters night to shine, but I do want to thank you all for the comments on the music.  It's going to take some work to finish but it is contests like this that make it all worthwhile.
