Hi @Paulski

I might do an entry, but am I too late?, as you list the contestants, rather implies that the competition is closed.

Around 3 hours to go to get your songs in before the doors slam shut guys. I will be consulting with @Paulski to clarify the voting procedure and how the hell  we're going to be able to count all those votes when there's only the two of us. To all who have entered a huge "Thank You" to all of you who are still sweating to get that one minute classic finished, get on with it  :) See you all at the awards ceremony  ;D

Second place to: Skub - Project 1 Minute

Third goes to: pompeyjazz - Oranges

Congratulations @tboswell and all runners up. Very imaginative list of front running songs there, and a worthy winner!  ;D

Although I didn’t enter, I enjoyed these songs so much and I honestly think I could listen to an album’s worth of one-minute wonders. I couldn’t write 40 or 50 one minute songs though - I find it’s hard enough coming up with song ideas, and when I do, I need to do it justice for three or four minutes at least! Now, there are some very prolific writers on the forum - how about an album’s worth chaps?! You know who you are!!
