Here's my top 10 for this month:

1). Pertudamsa - Sleepwalker - Outstanding groove, melodies and
performance. Loved the production too (despite the alarm clock ending!).

2). Arglebargle - Infiltrate - Excellent choice of Synth sounds
for this track. Guitar sets the end part off nicely.

3). Laura's Dad - Lock and Load - Exceptional guitar work!
Loved the 70's background parts. You should have saved this for 70's cop show theme month!

4). moppel - 100 Yen Shop - There's nothing I DON'T like about this song. The Mbrola girl voice was absolutely killer! After hearing this for the 1st time I downloaded the program. I wish you could tell me how to work the damn thing! I would love to try this out on a song.

5). Thomekk & Mona - Cactusfield - This was originally out of my top 10, but Mona's vocals were absolutely stunning and the song's melody was undenyingly captivating.

6). Laguna Rising - Visions of the March The drumbeat, quirky guitar, even quirkier synth backgrounds were perfectly stirred together to make this a winner.

7). d'Mast - SNCF - Very well conceived dance jam. Technically excellent. This should be playing worldwide in every dance club. A hit!

8). bh9090 - hf - Nice melodies and the drum programming was well done. Nice job for your 1st entry!

9). Max el Belga - Move - Excellent vocals and great production. You must have a blast making this track!

10). Off The Wall - The Free For All (No Whistle Blues) -Outstanding drinking song!
Great work on the guitars, mandolins etc. Big hurrah for the vocals and spoon solo too!

HM's in no particular order:
Ixox - Premier Mai
Barnadine - Get On Board
Aziraphal - The Boots of Freedom
Emerald Tablet - Winner
Slartibartfast - God's Gift to Women

Sevenoctives: I want to see the video for your version of Close To You!

Thanks to those who took the time to listen to and review Rock Sonata.
Especially to those who did and might still vote for it. :D
I am taking your suggestions and trying to incorporate them into each future song. Special thanks to Markleford for listing the songs on your website. This makes it a breeze to listen and compare all the entries.

See you around!

too many top tracks to be even remotely fair here, but this list is my final attempt at selecting - been so difficult that if i don't post now, i'll probably have to disqualify myself by not voting, and that would be a sin!

01. slartibartfast God's Gift to Women just too funny
02. thomekk & Mona Cactusfield sublime
03. moppel 100 Yen Shop warped charm and familiar
04. Aziraphal The Boots of Freedom like a long-lost sparks classic
05. Barnadine Get On Board lyrical excellence
06. larochep Amour Tendre (Tender Love) perfectly poised with sweetly understated sincerity
07. parke02 5ways primal euphoria
08. runagate Ghoulish Foreplay tiny tim's textural twin
09. folderol Little Trixie wonderfully evocative of 1950s instrumentals a la joe meek
10. me109 Disappear smooth, love the curio factor established through the lyrics.

the following were all contenders before the final culling:
sevenoctaves, Sausage Mahoney, Emerald Tablet, Beardedone, Markleford, Ixox, Jonny Quest, oddbod, Patrick9, Laura's Dad, rockstar_not, Zombie Queen, sp0rk, spirulence, Echo Voodoo

and hms to all

Bow down to my judgement.

1. sttjelle - lifechange
2. me109 - Disappear
3. oddbodsfinger - shessolow
4. Arglebargle - Infiltrate
5. MarcJX8P - OnAJourney
6. rockstarnot - tram
7. sevenoctaves - closetoyou
8. deaf dunderkwac - SinSity
9. silentquest - diamondint
10. SHUSH - Hell Yeah

I won't tell who number 11 was, but I have to say the ratio of enjoyable entries (to me) was much higher this month.
