This is going SO well...I’m really loving hearing what you’ve all done with this.

Still a few days left...so there’s just enough time to get something cooking.

As a special treat...here’s Toppers mid-80’s version of the great Gene Krupa’s “Drumming Man”



I think I still have the 7” of this somewhere...

Just a quick question.

Is it the same as the monthly comp where each entrant has to review all the other entrants songs to qualify to vote?

Good question, Davy. I’m not much of a fan of rules, but I’d definitely take a dim view of it if someone didn’t bother to comment on everyone else’s entries...

I managed to review some of the songs this evening - WOW! - I was blown away by each and every entry!!!

I just can't quite believe the diversity from the same drum track!

I hope to get mine finished tomorrow but I have enjoyed every single song!!

Yeah...it’s been so good to hear what everyone has done in their own individual styles and how they’ve all taken on the challenge and gone on to create so many great songs from such a narrow starting point.

You’re a very brave and cool bunch of songwriters  :-*

I think I got caught up reviewing today. Tonight. In between showers and bedtime stories for the grand kids. It's kind of amazing how differently the same basic drum track can be interpreted.

PaulAds and I are trying to hustle to finish our entry. I wouldn't be surprised if we keep polishing on it later, but I think we'll get something together enough to use in time. I hope. It may be tight.

Vicki sent me some lovely backing vocals - which was pretty amazing of here as I didn't have any melody I could send her...just a backing track...so I've been busy this afternoon and I think we have something in the bag...we're just checking it over but as we're just about out of time (and back to work tomorrow  :( ) it'll do, we reckon.

Couple of days left, folks!

Threw down some vocals last night, so I have 2 more days to try and whip it into shape. tick tock...
I've been holding off listening to everyone else's until I'm done to avoid being influenced....

@Paulski we have been messing around with the drum track as well, so you're not alone...

How long do we have for reviewing before voting?
I'm not gonna get round to reviewing until I've managed to submit mine - a lot of catching up to do!
