Something's not right in the U.K., and I suspect it has something to do with the Brexit vote. We submitted "You Go First" to the 2016 UK Songwriting Contest and although this has always been a fan-favorite, it only got "Commended Entry". The score almost qualified it for semi-finalist, fell one point short.
Well, a better-sounding mix will be on our next CD, so judge for yourselves. :-)

I have a plan for our set list – I know what songs we’re going to sing, in what order, and most musicians agree that it will be an effective set. I’ve been doing this for many years, and I know what’s funny and what’s not. We’ve been working hard to get the word out, and we’ve sent out many emails, some of which I’m happy to share with the public.
We need a revolution in SongLand, and I believe that we’re gonna get a really big turnout in the great town of Shrub Oak! The concert is free, it’s free to borrow books, everything should be free! We need to break up the big record companies, and everyone should have SongLand CDs, not just the 1% with big music collections! I was right in 2002, and everyone else was wasn’t!
As president of Romantic Devil Records, I doubled the number of songs released on my label. True, that’s because I bought up a several smaller labels such as “A” Record Label, and now Romantic Devil is struggling, but that’s because Joe’s president now, and don’t believe what you hear about why I got kicked out. Nowadays I make fun of other people’s songs – that’s how to make the big bucks.
Everybody is saying that I’m the best performer in SongLand and, trust me, I am! I sing louder than everybody else, and my songs have the most words in them. The other guys are all losers, and they should go back to South Carolina or the Bronx or Long Island. But seriously, I get along great with them and they all love me. Vote for me and we’ll make everyone in SongLand sing only my songs.
