After some last-minute calculations and re-calculations, we have the results. Votes very evenly spread but the clear winners were....

1st Eastern Eyes (Pompeyjazz & NeilC) (was the first song posted and always going to be hard to beat!)

2nd Green Light (Viscount Cramer) (almost the last song posted I think, so what do I know?!)

3rd Exotica Erotica (NeilC) (him again - please can I be in his team next time?)

4th Yamanote Sen (PaulyX) (now that's what I call exotic)

5th Secrets (Skub & Paulski) (now that's not what I call exotic - but hard to ignore or forget)

T'was a good one indeed! Thanks to all entrants who made it so hard but fun to choose, thanks to everyone who voted (do I have to say that anyone can vote?), and thanks to the forum for existing.

Adam & Martin

Big congrats to John and Neil... a very deserving winner.  A BIG track that blew the proverbial socks off. Cheers Adam and Martin for the stewardship.
It's all too beautiful.

First class song from PJ and Neil. Had us all struggling from that first entry!

Thoroughly deserved to win it. Well done boys!
Take it easy.

You can check my stuff out here. Mini-album getting bigger slowly. Free download if you're poorer than me.

Hey Adam and Martin,many thanks for all of your hard work herding the forum cats!  ;D

A big congrats to Neil and John for the win and to everyone else for taking part. There was some depth of song craft in this one,for sure.

I'm pleased Paul and I made it onto the leader board,my remit for the song was more than a little sketchy to say the least! Arm well chanced. ;D

The whole comp is a fine showcase of the great folks we have writing songs in this little corner of t'interwebz.

Be rightly proud of your bad selves.  8)

Wow ! Thank you so much everyone. I've been off the radar for a while due to domestics. A  huge thanks to @adamfarr and @Martinswede for getting it together and everyone who got involved. Personally I've loved listening to all of the contributors. And of course a huge thank you to my fellow Hampshire Hog @Neil C for his wonderful production and patience after I bombarded him with multiple ideas. Next competition idea anybody ?

Thank you once again. See you at the after show party 8)

A belated congrats - due to hols - to the winners and all participants in this, plus well done to our noble hosts for all the time and effort expended. As has been mentioned the contest did show off a real depth of songwriting talent and was a great show case for the forum itself!
