signed guitar up for grabs

We're not really in the habit of plugging new album releases. Actually, we don't ever plug new album releases. Not even stuff by JLS. But we're happy to tell you that two very talented musicians have a new album out. It's called Area 52 by Rodrigo y Gabriela. If you've not listened to them, you should. They make nice music. And we're big fans.

To celebrate their new album they've given us a signed Yamaha guitar to give away. The guitar's worth £500, and looks a bit like the one here, only signed (Rodrigo y Gabriela are currently touring in Mexico but will sign it when they get back to the UK next month).

The winner will get the signed guitar and a pair of tickets to one of Rodrigo y Gabriela's February UK shows (city of your choosing). Ten runners up will get a CD of the new album posted to them.

To enter, just let us know what your favourite song of all time is* (leaving it as a comment to this post). Deadline for entries is 6pm Sunday 29th January. We'll pick a winner and ten runners up at random next week. The lucky winner will find themselves a signed guitar and a pair of gig tickets richer, ten runners up will be one very good album better off and, if nothing else, we'll all have some jolly good song suggestions to make a monster playlist from.

WINNERS UPDATE - congratulations to Laura Quinton for winning the signed guitar and gig tickets, and also our runners up Helena Marie, Steve K, Dan Brown, Myranda Love, Ian, Karl, Sarah Harman, Leo Sayer, Ali Smith, Shane Simpson, Laura Jeffs.

* Please note - the song you choose will not in any way affect your chances of winning, no matter how bad it is.
