OK, since no-one seemed against it, let's do a round of songs you made yourself. To give people time to make something, I'll give two weeks for this, so deadline is 26th March. And remember, even if you don't want to participate in this, you can still vote, so be around in two weeks for that!

Q: something made for the contest, or can it be something we've already made?

Due to a lack of entries, I'm pushing back the deadline by a week. It is now on 2nd April.

Wow, thanks everyone. I actually had a hard time ranking the songs, all of them were great, so I didn't expect to win.

I had an idea for a theme when this round started, but I can't remember it...

As long as I can put a link to it in a forum post so others can experience it, sure. Maybe not a "song" in the strictest sense of the word, but I'm open to artistic experiments.

Yeah, I just thought I'd wait for the 22nd to be over for everyone before posting in case there was some last-minute submission.
You know the drill, please vote before the 30th of April and you can vote even if you didn't submit a song.

All right, this was a nice round with a lot of contestants and yet one undisputed winner has emerged:"My Brothe: An Email Funk Opera" by Jazz Emu, submitted by Heury with no less than three people putting that song in first place. Unfortunately this victory is not official, Heury did not submit votes, so I must wrench the trophy from their hands and hand it to LingEarth for the song "Ghost Love Score" by Nightwish. Congratulations!
