This is an introduction to the Song of the Year comp for 2011. In order to qualify for this a song must have been a winner or runner-up in one of the Open Format comps held during 2011.
Here are the contenders:
Maybe Lord Calvert Knows Why - Wendy D
The Strangest Feeling - ScenesFromPalacio
Sail Away - Jason Kalman
The following songs are ineligible:
Better – chaplin (not active)
Sadder Now – somefellow (declined to post in comp thread)
When You're Ready – Nevergoback (not active)
In the past it has been seen as a disadvantage for an artist to have more than one song representing them so before we start any voting (and note that the scoring will be different form the monthly comps) and am going to invite both Jason Kalman and ScenesFromPalacio to withdraw one or more of their songs if they wish. The choice is entirely theirs and they may to choose not to withdraw any songs, and that is fine. I just need to know by Jan 6 via PM if they want to exercise this option otherwise all songs in the contenders list above will be in the final.
If anyone wants to check out song of the year eligibility you can find details here
So watch this space for further Instructions
Note: There will also be a separate comp for 1+1 Song Of The Year 2011
