Have got the okay from Gail to run a competition which I hope many will take part in and enjoy. There will be a prize of a poster, "Michael Bolton Greatest Hits 1985 - 1995" and picture of it is included after this notice. I'm donating the poster and will mail to winner so, before you enter, please consider you will have to share with me an address to which it can be sent if you win. If you do not want to share those details please, please, do not enter competition proper but consider submitting your entry under "FUN" section and marking it as such.  For "FUN" section it will still be same list of lyrics.

Format for competition:
1 Submit application to be entrant by noon GMT, 22nd October.
2 List of all entrants published.
3 Actual competition from noon GMT, 27th October until noon GMT, 29th October.
4 Announcement of results by 5th November i.e. competition proper and fun section.
5 Publication of all entries
6 Disputes, on result, accepted until 9th November (?).
7 Prize will be mailed to winner.

Rules of Competition:
Over next three weeks, until noon GMT, on Thursday, 22nd October, you can enter to take part in competition. To enter, you will be required to be a member of this website, www.michaelbolton.com, for you will have to let me know, on here, you want to take part. You will also have to "friend" me in order to submit actual competition entry, in secret, via a personal message. Once closing date is passed, i.e. 22nd October, I will publish a list of those who wish to enter so each entrant can verify their name is registered and also to ensure I cannot add a name after closing date. Names of those wishing to enter can be posted on this thread, posted to wall on my page, or, by PM to me. Here is link to my page .... http://www.michaelbolton.com/profile/sylviadoughty346?xg_source=pro...

On Tuesday, 27th October, at noon GMT, I will post 27 lines of lyrics from songs, by Michael, which he will have recorded onto CD's. You will have 48 hours in which to submit, through a PM, your entry, telling me which songs the lyrics come from. Closing date, therefore, for all entries will be, noon GMT, Thursday, 29th October. The lyrics will be numbered and you MUST number your respective song title to correspond with the lyrics you think belong to it and I must ask that you try to keep your answers in numerical order, please !!! Hopefully, I will be able to announce the winner, which will be the one who has answered highest number of lyrics to songs correctly, by Thursday, 5th November. If there is a draw, another list of lyrics will be published, for those who have come equal first. Rest assured if such a situation arises, of there being draws, it will not be dragged out by lists upon lists but please, let's agree to deal with that, if and when, it does arise.  I do propose taking note of time each correct entry is received and if it proves to be the case that there is a large number of correct entries, only those received in the quickest time will go forward to a further "lyrics/song off".  Rest assured time differences within regions and countries will be taken into account.

After having received all entries and have named winner will, before posting any prize to anyone, publish each and every entry received in order that:
(a) all those who have entered can see their entry was taken into account;
(b) each and every entrant can verify that correct winner has been arrived at.
Only when no dispute is received, as to who is winner, will prize then be mailed. Will say Monday, 9th November, as date by which any dispute will have to be received but let's not lay that down in stone and leave as, could be subject to change. Will also post a list of correct song titles to lyrics.


                                                                    -----------ooo000ooo----------

Hope you will see and understand, as far as rules for entries being sent privately and only allowing 48 hours to answer, is because I'm trying, as far as possible, to get the winner to be a person who really knows Michael's songs which, I hope everyone will agree, is the fairest outcome in such a competition. Should add, you do not have to answer all 27 but only those that you are sure of. Always keep in mind, no one might know the 27, therefore, even if you only know 17, please, please submit your entry for, your's might still be the highest number, answered correctly.

Any questions, PLEASE ask !!!


Lastly, I have a HUGE THANK YOU to extend to one, Rob Bortkiewicz, who gave me the idea for this competition when he posted a tweet suggesting, for a bit of fun and in honour of Michael's new CD, we guess song lyrics so, if you like the idea for this competition, you must extend your thanks to Rob and I certainly do ...... thanks Rob !!! :)

Size of poster is 22 inches x 29 inches.

ADDENDUM to actual competition:


Alongside actual competition am going to run a "FUN" section within it and it is for anyone who does not wish to win poster and possibly feels, as they do not know me would not want to share their address details with me. Same rules will apply as far as submitting your entry in secret except to mark it "FUN" along with same time schedule for entries and also I will draw up and publish details of entrants and entries in exactly the same way but, no prize will be given, in "FUN" competition. Same set of lyrics will also apply.  Have incorporated this section into rules above.

I believe result, with five correct entries, justifies a further set of lyrics to arrive at one overall winner.   Propose, if no disputes on above results are received, to draw up a list of 3 sets of lyrics and will ask the named 5 to submit their answers in same way as already done.  Will post, tomorrow, further details and will also send those details, through PM's, to the five ladies mentioned.

Have to inform, those who were unsuccessful, I have already sent PM's to explaining how and why I came to decision I have that their names could not go forward.  I have asked each one, if they have a dispute with my decision, to come on here and say so and I will publish their entry so that everyone can judge whether my decision was right, or, wrong.

PLEASE, any questions, any disputes, anything at all to do with competition, post on here.

Thanks again for all your support, thanks !!! :)

For an up date on competition I should inform everyone that I have written to the five girls, who will be involved in round 2, with a suggestion of, what I consider, fairest and possibly easiest way to arrive at a winner and have asked them to let me know if they are in agreement.

I do propose that round 2 will consist of a list of 3 lines of lyrics and the winner will be the first to send in the correct answers.  If no one answers 3 correctly then it will be the person who first submits correct 2.  The question arises as to when is the best time to do this so that each has an equal chance because there does arise a time difference because of where the girls live.  I would like to post the lyrics at a time when each girl will have access to a computer and each be able to see immediately the post appears.  I have suggested we do it on Sunday and have also suggested a time so, as soon as I have word back from each girl, I will post on here exactly what will be happening in round 2.

I missed one :-(

Hope some time in future to run another competition, not a lyrics one, so, better luck next time Joy and thanks again for support and taking part, thanks !!! :)

2nd and Final round will be held today, 1 November.  Winner will be judged as being the person who submits first correct answers to 3 sets of lyrics.  If no one answers 3 correctly then the person who has been quickest to submit 2 correctly will be judged the winner.

Three sets of lyrics will be posted on here at 9.00 pm, 2100 hrs GMT and competition will officially close at 9.00 am, 9000 hrs tomorrow, Monday, 2 November.   There are 3 time zones involved, therefore, for those within EST, lyrics will be posted at 4.00 pm, 1600 hrs with competition closing at 4.00 am, 4000 hrs.  For those within CET (Central Eurpoean Time) lyrics will be posted at 10.00 pm, 2200 hrs and competition will close at 10.00 am, 1000 hrs
