SpinTunes #5 Round 1 Songs

Once again we owe Tom a big thanks for running the LP. He did a great job.

The songs are now available for FREE download, and you can vote for your favorite entries as well. Many of you will be asking friends and family to support you in the popular vote. That's great, but when you do, please ask them to listen to all the songs & vote for their favorites. You can vote for up to 5 different people, so they might as well listen to everyone.

Until the round 2 songs are posted I will only allow people to download the round 1 album as a whole. But even after that, PLEASE download the entire album vs downloading just a handful of songs while the contest is on going. BandCamp limits how many free downloads I can give away, and 1 album download counts the same as 1 song download.

With 29 entries turned in for round 1, that means there will be 9 eliminations in Round 1 and 8 eliminations in rounds 2 and 3. That would leave 4 finalists for round 4. Good luck everyone.

You can find the album on BandCamp by clicking the image below:

  1. If you would like a special BONUS track, the Squirrel Mix of Crowning Glory is available over at http://menageatune.bandcamp.com/album/the-spintunes-5-collection

  2. Come on over and discuss the songs or post your reviews at http://spintoons.proboards.com/

  3. JoAnn - Thank you for taking the time to review my song. I really appreciate it!!!

  4. Dr. Leigh. I'm sorry. I just gave your song reviews the finger.

  5. *Sigh* It's a good thing there wasn't already a SpinTunes forum at oceanofbees.com that I had created because people said they wanted it, and that everyone then ignored. That would have made it really annoying to see someone else make a SpinTunes forum.

    Yeah...glad I didn't do that.
