Musicnotes.com is proud to announce we have a brand new contest for the month of February.
In celebration of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day celebration, we’re on the hunt for long lost Irish songs and we need your help.
Simply suggest an Irish song that we do not have digital sheet music for on Musicnotes.com in the comments below. If we add sheet music for your song by St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll win a twenty-five dollar gift certificate to our online store! You can use the gift certificate to purchase anything you need including: Irish sheet music, Guitar Guru Sessions, movie sheet music and much, much more!
Our Suggest an Irish Song Contest starts today and will run through midnight on Sunday, February 28th.
We’d like to present you with a few contest rules for our Suggest an Irish Song Contest. They are:
- 1. Where to Recommend Your Song: You must post your song suggestion with a title, composer and/or performer (if it’s a traditional piece, just say “traditional”) as a comment on this blog post with a valid email address. Any other requests will not be considered as part of this contest. The valid email address will only be used to notify you if you won a gift certificate, and is not publicly displayed when you comment on our blog.
- 2. What Songs We Will/Will Not Consider: We will consider any song suggestion related to Irish music. In order to be considered for the contest, the song that you recommend must not be currently available on Musicnotes.com in digital sheet music format.
- 3. How Winners Will be Notified: Musicnotes.com will review entries and award the gift certificates by March 17, 2010. Songs recommended will be added to the site by March 17, 2010.
We will notify you via email if you have won. Please be advised that only entries made from now through February 28th, 2009 are eligible for the contest.
To avoid confusion, winners will also be awarded on a first-come/first-serve basis. In other words, if two people request the same song, we will award the certificate to the first commenter with a valid email address. You may enter as many times as you like for your chance to win. No purchase necessary.
Please note: During our previous contest, we received several entries for arrangements of songs we already had on Musicnotes.com in digital sheet music format. Please be aware that only new songs are being considered for the contest.
Simply think of an Irish song, then search Musicnotes.com to ensure that we don’t have already have it. To enter, recommend the title, composer and/or performer in the comments below for your chance to win!
Be sure to stop back or bookmark the page and check the comments, too!
Irish Sheet Music for Your Songs
Thank you for taking the time to enter song suggestions into our contest. We really appreciate all your entries and have many to go through. Many of you pointed out that a folk song can have several names, and we did see quite a few variations of song titles in your requests. For example, An Irish Lullaby is also known as Too-Ra-Loo-Ra-Loo-Ral.
A few of these songs, like Only If… by Enya, may not be visible in your country. While we do everything we can to ensure that songs are available worldwide, sometimes we can’t due to copyright restrictions.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a song suggestion for our contest. Any entries received after February 28, 2010 will be disqualified. Stay tuned for new Irish music!
The following songs are not eligible for the contest, because we already have sheet music for them on Musicnotes.com.
