We present to you the 10 finalists for our first ever Choose the Subject of a TMGB Song Contest! Pick your favorites wisely! You may select more than one, but you may vote only once!
We received more than 150 song suggestions, most of which were quite brilliant. If your suggestion was not chosen as a finalist, please accept this as a comment on The Gentlemen’s collective lack of wit and creativity and not as a rejection of the merits of your topic.
We considered each suggestion carefully and chose as finalists those which we could imagine as the subject of a charming two-man composition that wouldn’t require too much of a pre-amble. We are not proud to admit that we have an easier time writing a song about say, the clap, than we do writing about a peculiar historical incident. But, such is the case.
Voting closes on June 1, 2009. We shall reveal the winning suggestion and its author then.
