I had forgotten when the announcement was going to be. My co-writer had to e-mail me to let me know we didn't get finalist in anything this year. frown

Well, Ricki, there's always the next one. wink April's not all that far away. wink

Re the Instrumental track: I hope to have the vocal version of 'Run, Habibti, Now Run' ready by April. Perhaps I'll submit it.

Mind you, the migrant/asylum seeker saga has taken a bit of a different turn in the past couple of months, so the lyric's drama might have lost some of its clout.

Thanks, Glyn. smile Billy's a wonderful composer.

Donna

For anyone interested, here's the track. (I've included the lyric, though the track is an instrumental. The vocal version is in the pipeline.)

Yeah, I remember the song. Listened to the track. Billy latched right onto what seemed to me to be the "mood" or "feeling" of the song all right. I even listened all thje way through. Most instrumentals begin to bore me after about a minute and a half smile

Hi Donna:

I'm so proud of you and Billy for this accomplishment. All your hard work and talent are paying off... if not monetarily, at least in recognition. This certainly provides encouragement for continuing to slave away at your creative work.

All the best, ----Dave

Thanks so much, everyone. smile

You're right, Dave. This is the kind of acknowledgment that encourages us to try that little bit harder. Not necessarily to aim for commercial accolades, but simply to become better at the craft, for our own sense of achievement.

And in this instance, all the glory belongs to Billy. He's the music guy. smile I'm always thrilled for him when we get something into the Finals (or semi-finals).

Oh my gosh! laugh I can't believe it!

Thanks for the heads-up, Ricki. smile

I must head off now and email Billy. He'll be chuffed. smile

And now I feel inspired to get the vocal version done.
(Billy of course has sung the demo, but we thought it might be more interesting to have female vocals for the 'finished' product.)

A couple of songs Mike Zaneski and I did were among the honourable mentions as well. wink (Clearly i move in the right circles. wink )
