The Videogum Song Contest: The Finalists

DING DONG BING BONG BONG DING DONG! You know, song stuff! The Videogum Song Contest enters the next phase. After receiving 19 entries, which might not sound like a lot of entries, but then you think about it, and you realize that is actually kind of a ton of entries, the guest/founding judges, werttrewShellbomber and Chris Trash have narrowed the field down to their five favorites based on a complicated and scientific algorithm, I’m sure. After the jump, you can listen to the 5 finalists, as well as vote in our state of the art on-line poll that uses only the best polling technology. (Thanks for the tip, David Axelrod.)

Let me also say at this point: congratulations to all of the entrants! I will post all of the songs at a future date so that we can all enjoy everyone’s hard work together, like when a couple shares earbuds on their Zune, but EVEN MORE. But that is for later. I mean, congratulations, yes, but we can’t get distracted by non-viable songs. What do you think this is? A Clown Show? No. This is not a clown show. So, for today, double-congratulations to the five songs that made it into the finals.
