Stop Pain Start Dancing

Spintown News:
The votes are in for Round 2 of Song Fu 4. The first thing I noticed is an extreme drop off in the number of people who voted this round. The website claims that there was only 351 total voters, when in round 1 there was almost 1,300. That's a BIG drop off, and I'm guessing a lot of other people besided myself thought the challenge was lame. Berg & Jerry got the victory this round by 8 votes over Tom Milsom. The top 10 vote getters are listed below:

Berg & Jerry - "This Day Shall Be Mine" (68 Votes)
Tom Milsom - "March As A Mad Hare" (60 Votes)
Ian & Melissa - "Song FUneral March" (50 Votes)
Gorbzilla - "March Of The Geeks (Semi-Autobiographical)" (48 Votes)
Sara Parsons - "Let's Have An Awkward March" (46 Votes)
The Perfect Place - "March Of The Clandestine Ninjas" (40 Votes)
Edric Haleen - "Whispered In Your Ear" (38 Votes)
Steve Chatterton - "The Only Way I Know" (34 Votes)
Denise Hudson - "Anna's Gerbil & The Singularity" (34 Votes)
The Scribbles - "The Student's Revenge" (33 Votes)

The Round 3 Challenge looks a little more promising, but when I first read the word 'standard' I got excited hoping they would be creating songs in the style of people like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Nat King Cole.

For your third challenge, you are to write a standard song. I am defining a “standard song” as one with a definite melody and a chorus that repeats at least once (to clarify: the chorus should appear at least twice in the song). However, your song must run EXACTLY 1 minute in length - no shorter, and no longer. You can write on any topic.
In the BOTR section I posted the rest of the Paul And Storm concert that Mike Lombardo recently recorded.
