IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: COMPETITION WINNER ANNOUNCED (04/08/06)
The winner is… Martin D. Well done, Martin! Please let us know where we should send your prize.
The second track from David’s ‘On an Island’ album, and the second such competition.
The rules are still simple. All you need to do is list five words that you think of when you listen to the title-track (which, incidentally, came out on top in our Favourite track from ‘On an Island’ poll, just ahead of ‘Take a Breath’).
No sentences, just words and no more than five of them. For example, you might list something like harmony, nightfall, memories, sand and sea.
The last time, the prize went to the first person – and only the first person – to suggest the very word that I was thinking of. This time, the prize will go to the one person whose name is selected at random from a list, raffle-style.
If anyone guesses any of my five words, they will be entered into the draw with a number based on the order in which that word was received (all posts, as you know, are time-stamped).
If someone guesses more than one of my five words, then they will be entered into the draw more than once/given more than one number, thereby giving them a greater chance of winning.
The competition will run until midnight tonight (UK time). No further entries will be allowed after this time, so please don’t bother trying. A list of names will by then have been compiled and a random person will select the winning number tomorrow, when I will announce the winner and you can all return to being calm, sane, perhaps even dull individuals in anticipation of news from Venice.
Our new poll asks how you rate DavidGilmour.com (as a complete site, including this blog), so please let us know. You responses in no way influence the outcome of the competition, though, so you can be completely honest. We can take it.
