Congratulations to all of the winners! A really great selection of tracks this year.

And thanks, Cerise, for the kind words about my version of "Lament." I'm fine with a comparison to Jon Marsh/The Beloved, any day! :-)

Can't wait to do this again next year!

Congratulations to my Electro 80s pals for 3rd place in the "best cover" category with "Sleepwalk". Loved this since the moment I first heard it. smile

It truly was a fantastic and supremely enjoyable assemblage of talent entered into this year's competition, and everyone is to be congratulated. Good going!!!

Thank you very much, Cerise and Rob, for the honor of being the "Best Cover" category winner. I had so much fun putting that track together, and I'm glad you thought it was close enough to the original to take the category. 'Moon Over Moscow' is one of my favorite Visage recordings (as is the LP it appears on), and I have wanted to cover that song for many years.

Thanks everyone for participating, listening, and for supporting this website! Looking forward to entering the competition again next year -- a collaborative effort with the lovely Lynne!

Same from me. I'm pretty shocked to have won to be honest. Delighted but shocked! That song was written as a private challenge/joke between myself and my friend - we were both trying to make songs which were as John Foxx-like as possible. He wrote one called 'Citadels' which was intentionally Metamatic-like. I *attempted* to do electronics but it's not really my forte, hence me falling back on a guitar sound.

For what it's worth, my favourite was 'Lament' by Box Of Sky. It's got a great feel... and arrangement-wise it reminds me of Black Box Recorder. Lovely.

And thanks to Cerise for uploading all the songs and doing the judging. It's not a quick or easy task.

All the best,
+A

Thanks so much, Adam! (I'm digging these comparisons, indeed.) It was more than enough to place 4th in Re-Covers for what was a truly last-minute recording.

"Implausible Man" was superb: both retro and futuristic. Especially great guitar lick, too.

Congrats!

Thanks very much Cerise! As others have said, the standard just gets higher and higher, so it's a thrill to win the category.

On to next year... a do-wop version of Vienna... a skiffled-up One Small Day...

Just got home from a wedding today - and I had some great news waiting for me.

I'm so happy I got in the runners up for the Original songs section - especially when you consider how damn good every song was in this section. The comments have left a big grin on my face. I'm a very very happy man.

Congratulations to everyone laugh

It was really, really tough to decide. You can rest easy, knowing that you gave me such a hard time it took me days to work out a result that felt right. There really are many, many fantastic entries. I cant believe how talented everyone is! smile
