Fan Awards: Song of the Year
It’s still too early after NQC for the news flow to start back up. So here’s another NQC-related thought I had over the weekend:
It’s a little odd that possibly 2007’s most popular song (“I Can Pray”) was disqualified on a technicality, but the winning song (“Look For Me”) is a song that the Kingsmen introduced 35 years ago and the winning group (Booth Brothers) recorded some seven years ago.
Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not suggesting a conspiracy; I know Singing News bases its rules on radio airplay. As I understand, “I Can Pray” was apparently singled at the wrong time to be qualified. But should rules that produce a result this incongruous perhaps be reconsidered?
(Keep suggestions constructive. The past is past; focus on the future.)
