The Classic FM Voting Poem

 

I haven’t blogged much recently. I have been on Twitter and Facebook pretty solidly for weeks on end now. Rather like I was last year although I learned one or two lessons after the 2015 Hall of Fame e.g. put the voting link in your Tweet, that way the recipient doesn’t need to go looking for it. Hashtag lots e.g. if you’re Tweeting a greyhound charity, add the #greyhounds hashtag so anyone searching for stuff about greyhounds will see your Tweet. All fairly obvious but this year, very helpful.  I have sent out hundreds (possibly thousands) of Tweets, I have targeted those I felt might be interested in my music and the fact I’d love to be voted back into the Hall of Fame for another year.

This morning, so fed up was I with all the social media stuff, I sat down and with the tune ‘My Way’ in my head, wrote this little ditty. Promise to sing it out loud when you read it and if you have already voted for The New Lady Radnor Suite and A Country Suite – THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH! xxx

 

The Classic FM Hall of Fame 2016 Voting Poem – by Fiona Bennett

**dum dum dum dum duuum duuuum, dum dum dum dum duuum duuum**

So now, the end is near

The Hall of Fame will close the voting

It would be such a shame

To find the others are all gloating

To know I’ve not got in

To hear bad news would bring such dread in

To find that I have failed

Would – do – my – head – in

 

I’ve sat at my PC

My RSI is very painful

I’ve sent so many Tweets

It may not work, that would be shameful

I’ve called, I’ve mailed, I’ve begged

I’ve asked you all to put your votes in

To find there’s nothing there

Would – do – my – head – in

Chorus

For what is a song, what does it do?

Would life be empty, is it true?

Without my tunes, would I be sad?

Would life be really all that bad?

Does Heaven know, how far I’d go

To write – a – good – tune?

 

So now, it’s almost time

Classic FM will close its curtains

If you don’t vote for me

Then I won’t win – of this I’m certain

I’ve handled it quite well

I’ve had my picture in the paper

So now, it’s down to you

Vote – so – I’m – safer

Chorus

For what is a song, what does it do?

Would life be empty, is it true?

Without my tunes, would I be sad?

Would life be really all that bad?

Does Heaven know, how far I’d go

To – write – a – good – tune?
