THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED – THANKS FOR ALL YOUR FEEDBACK!]
Here’s Naomi’s winning entry, UnGoogleable You:
“A total treat, the teenage laurie anderson and bill gates dancing at the senior prom. Touching, tender, nerd and sweet.”
“I’d buy an album of this. Wonderful structure, very nice original melody, extra geek & smile points for the 140 character solo. Really nice tempo & melody variation.”
“A fully-formed indie pop song, this wouldn’t be out of place on the playlist of an independent radio station. And it has the potential to become the new stalking anthem that could finally replace “Every Breath You Take” by Police – at least, I hope so…”
“Pulls at the heartstrings as well as the nerd… strings. Fab.”
We also want to mention a couple of other song writers who didn’t quite win, but did impress us muchly with their creations:
HONORABLE MENTION GOES TO: Andrew Pontzen
THE GRAPHIC SCIENCE MOST CONTRIVED RHYME PRIZE GOES TO: Rishi Nag
“Growing 29000 plants was not the only trick, You still had to perform some Mendel arithmetic”
Read Rishi’s blog post about writing his song, including lyrics, here.
AND THANKS ONCE AGAIN TO: Graphic Science for sponsoring that prize.
So this is the one all you budding song writers have been waiting for. The time has come for us to announce the winner of our Summer Song Writing Competition! It hasn’t been easy choosing a winner. In fact, it’s been bloody hard. You’ve all done such a darn good job.
So big thanks to our judges for making all the tough decisions, and a special shout out to Graphic Science for making it worth the winner’s while by stumping up £100 of Gadget Shop vouchers… Oooooh. Now, you’ll just have to listen to the end to see who’s won them.
And in the mean time, you can hear us trying (and failing spectacularly) to get to grips with M theory, pondering over an Inuit hymn and doing the old big-fish-little-fish-cardboard box routine (whether you can actually hear that last one is debatable).
COMPETITION WINNER! Ah, you won’t find out that easily…
