ANNOUNCEMENT: This Blog's First Contest!

The holiday season is shortly commencing, and all you lucky msuicphiles out there have a plethora of Christmas choices. Hannukah songs? Shame, that. Herewith, the first contest this blog has offered. I want some good Hannukah music---nothing treacly, perferebly something pop-ish and catchy and even a little ironic (see: Chiron Beta Prime by Jonathan Coulton) for a good example). I'll judge all entries and award the winner a prize. Full details below; feel free to spread this news hither and thither to any blog you know. I would love to see a lot of great Hannukah music out there.

Contest: The Great Commons Hannukahfest 2006 sponsored by The Best Media in Life is Free

Eligibility: Open to anyone, anywhere in the world. Multiple entries are permitted.

Prize: One first place winner will receive a free Commons-licensed cd, title a surprise for now---but the cd has bonus goodies to die for

Entry procedure: Write and record a Hannukah-themed song. Release it onto the net under a Creative Commons license. Send me an email with the title, author's name and email, and URL to the song ( will host it for you if you haven't got a website).

Deadline: Please have all entries sent in by December 1, 2006. I will judge the contest at that time and announce the winner on this blog once s/he has been notified. I will also post a complete list of all entries, for the enjoyment of the masses.

Happy holidays, everyone. Now, go dazzle me with your amazing Hannukah music. And please, spread the word. You can win free stuff! Seriously.
