Enchanted Island Music Play List Giveaway
CONTEST CLOSED ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO!
Many of you have probably played The Desert Island Game in some form or another. It goes something like: If you could only take 10 books to a desert island, what would they be? It's a great way to while away time with people you think you know well (surprises!) or people you think you might like to know or people you know and don't particularly like.
You don't play it? Well, you should. In some form. You learn about what you love and what other people love. That's good information. Plus, it takes you back, makes you remember why you fell in love with something.
It can also lead to heated discussions. Not too long ago, my husband and I were being blessed by the brilliance (dimmed, but still out there) of Western Pennsylvania FM radio, principally, WDVE -- the only true radio giant left in those parts. Anyway, we got to "talking" about the merits of the Allman Brothers versus Lynyrd Skynyrd. I was ardent in my passionate belief that "Jessica" was the greatest driving song of all time, and therefore raised the Allman Brothers to the glorious summit of Greatest Southern Rock Band of All Time. He did a dirty jump to The Ballad of Curtis Lowe, by Skynyrd -- a song so great that it was out of the driving song category, then pronounced Skynyrd as one of the greatest bands in history. Period.
"Greater than The Who?" I asked, thinking I knew the answer. I mean we've been married nearly 30 years!
"Yes," the traitorous one replied. "You like them more than I do. The drumming is obtrusive." That was a double whammy. He had slighted the ghost of Keith Moon, one of my great music heroes, and insulted the greatest rock band on Earth still in actual existence (sort of).
"Do I know you?" I yelled. "Do you have extra wives hidden somewhere? Offshore bank accounts? Are you really even Todd Wolford?"
We eventually were able to move the discussion to the neutral but pleasing subject of Neil Young, whom we both ardently adore.
I explain all of this to show you that the game matters. (It also gave you some clues about what next year's magazine themes will be about, but we won't announce that for months.)
It also was a way to show you that music is vitally important to me. Reading is my brain's life force. I dream in print. But music is the only art form that has ever allowed me to experience a sense of joyous transport in, I guess, a mystical sense. I am curious about what transports readers musically. It will help me understand EC's audience more. Plus, it gives me the chance to give seven super donated prizes away!
Here are the contest details and rules:
We are on Enchanted Island. It's full of the good life, but with enough fairy tale kinds of adventures to make life interesting and even a little dangerous. As the benevolent but autocratic Fairy Godmother Queen of Enchanted Island, I am also in charge of the island's play list. But I understand that diverse input is needed to make a great play list.
In order to live on Enchanted Island, you must bring five songs to the play list. You must name the artist and the song and it must be clear on your entry why you picked these songs. Lazy, "I dunno" entries and would-be islanders will have to climb back in the magic vintage autos that brought you here. You can be lazy on the island, but not about what you should love. (What this means is, when you enter, have real reasons for why you picked your songs. Otherwise, you are disqualified.)
You may bring two more lists to the island (entries) with different songs and reasons, but they must be made at least 24 hours apart.
OK, now to the nitty gritty of rules:
1) You must be 18 to enter. Otherwise, you can live anywhere in the world.
2) Each entry must have five songs picked with artist and title names, with a small paragraph or list on why you picked these songs. The reasons can be brief, but than must be cogent and not just obvious attempts at entering to win something.
3) You may enter up to three times, but all entries must be 24 hours apart and each entry must meet the requirements listed here.
4) For each entry, you must pick a number between 400 and 1000. Each entry should be a different number in that range. Winners will be chosen by random drawing from numbers in that range. Whomever is closest to the number (lesser or greater) will be that day's winner.
5) You must be reachable by email or check the site each day until all of the prizes are awarded. Failure to claim a prize in 72 hours after announcing you as a winner will mean we will pick a new number and a new winner for that prize.
6) The prizes are awarded randomly and winners do not get to pick their prizes. All of them are great. To see them, just scroll down this page and you will see all seven with a picture and post.
7) The giveaway game begins at 12 a.m. July 17, 2011, EST. It ends at 11:59 p.m., EST on July 23.
8) One prize will be awarded each day, starting July 24, until the prizes are gone. There are seven.
9) All types of music are welcome. My tastes are irrelevant here. On the Enchanted Island though, you'll be hearing a lot of loud old guys.
10) ENTRIES ARE MADE BY POSTING A COMMENT UNDER THIS POST!!!
