Oh Silver Scrolls

god defend pops ultimate star

Them Silver Scrolls is coming around again. It is New Zealands Most Best Songwriting Award. (I think I won this back in 1982.)

A while ago I posted that The Mint Chicks ‘Crazy? Yes! Dumb? No!’ would take it out. Check out their song below as performed by TMC bestie Anika Moa.

Well, APRA has now decided on their top 20 finalists ! Having a top 20 reminds me of watching American Idol on televison.

Even more Idol, is that now members of APRA will decide who will make the final five ! by voting ! I hope somebody wins a brand new car !

But there can only be one winnar.
