"Write My Lyrics" Contest Results

Congratulations to Chris "Doobie" Fraker, for winning the popular vote and a $10 gift certificate to Amazon.com! Chris' song, Shac's Lamentable tells the tale of another VT alumnus who randomly decided to up and move to Israel for no apparent reason. The song received 5 votes and beat entries by Kathy Smith and Carol Uri (as well as two more entries hastily scribbled down by me to make the contest look bigger than it really was, since I have lots of expertise in looking big).

As a lyricist, Chris gained insight into his subject matter through shared years in the Blue Ribbon Brass quintet . When asked whether any other quintet members, such as the first trumpet player, had any influence on him, Chris demurred (30 KB MP3).

  1. The Effing Snow by Kathy Smith (2 votes)
  2. Who You Are by Brian Uri! (1 vote)
  3. Shac's Lamentable by Chris Fraker(5 votes)
  4. Winter in NOVA by Carol Uri (2 votes)
  5. Cat Fight by Brian Uri! (3 votes)

Now that the contest is over, the next Audience Participation event will be this Wednesday: a NAME THAT TUNE contest in which you will only be given the bass line! In the meantime, don't forget that today is 12 of 12!
