Well done, Goldfish. :) You were in my list, and I'm not surprised you got the No. 1 spot. 

And Congratulations, Road Dog. 'Falling' was in my list of three. ;)

Bee3, 'Forgotten Man' is a fine song. :)

Personally, my vote coincided with two of the top 3 - but I would have liked to see People Like That up on the rostrum too!

Wow!  I am thankful that folks liked this song enough to place!   I must admit I really like People Like That and was thinking it would take it all!

Congratulations to Goldfish, Justin, and RoadDog! I've already said it but I'll say it again: The Hole That's in My Ceiling is an amazing piece of writing. I'm glad so many people chose it. The lyrics, for me, are like something out of Gabriel Garcia Marquez or some other magical realist writer. Justin's Forgotten Man is superb, really grabs at your heart. My third favorite was Tom's because I especially like the music for it. But this was a strong group of songs -- all of them are winners in my book! Thanks to Alistair for making sure SOTY happened.

Wowie wow folks, thank you to whoever gave me a vote. Though I now wish I had taken a shower before I took that video, tbh. 

My big three favs were likewise Bee3 and RoadDog's songs, and also Paul's "My Heart Opens Like a Rose." Good stuff all, it was hard to pick.
