    So are there two winners, the person who nominated the winning song and a voter?

    One of the first songs I picked was “Dancing In The Dark” – Love It ….. http://www.twitvid.com/UGSEJ – whether I win or not …. I’m going to turn off the lights and Dance In The Dark when we’re there for sure! 🙂

    Thanks for putting this contest together Terry and Liz – one grateful picker I am 🙂

    I chose songs based on being known by every American (at least, if not every human) in attendance, and by the presence of at least one very high, held-out, or just plain goofy part certain to wow the crowd when you nail it 🙂

    Also I have no idea what SOBcon even is, but your Twitter/Blog one-two-punch lineup hooked me so I’m sure it’s something I should have known about but overlooked due to moving in different orbits under normal conditions.

    I did, however, read a blog post a few days ago about the power of publicity stunts undiminished in the years since PT Barnum perfected them.
