The day has arrived when it's time to listen to the 11 entries in this year's Lakers Cover Bruce song contest and find a winner. That is, voting will be open until the end of Sunday June 2 to give everyone time to listen and ponder.

When you vote, you will get the choice of awarding from 1-3 points to a song. You can give them all 1 point or 2 points or 3 points. That's completely up to you. There is no 0 points option, just because I think everybody deserves points just for being brave enough to submit, and all entries are, in my opinion, absolutely worth listening to.

When the voting is over, I will add up all the points and declare a winner.

Download all the songs as a zip-file.

Good luck to all!

I’ve listened to all of them. Some great stuff here, as usual! I’ll have to give everything another listen before I get to voting and say something about my favourites.

Well done, everyone!

I read about some who didn't want to do this if they were being 'judged' and in competition with each other. Was it decided (well it must have been) that it was ok to do this?

I've had a quick listen to them all and will listen, later, when I finish off the wind @Daisey Jeep :)

Congrats to all for having the talent and bottle to put these out there.

Love the Soul Driver arrangement. Particularly the horns.

I still have my favourites from last year on my phone too.

Thanks in advance to everyone involved. Can't wait to listen. ^_^

Interesting selection of songs. Some obscurities. I think I get the prize for the most obvious choice.

Just did a quick listen, wow! I'll listen a few more times before rating. I had an issue playing Dancing on Google drive the first time but it finally played, and while it may be an obvious song it sounds like the Modern Lovers covering Bruce!

Does any other rock music fan site have this type of contest - and high level of talent on that contest?

Do I detect sarcasm!  I was going to put a certain  DITD high, high up on points.  Now you'll have to send a transfer of $5 to my account at Greasy Lake Incorporated to ensure your success.

It's always been one of my favorite unreleased outtakes. Tremendous, complex and nuanced storytelling. There's an earlier version called James Lincoln Dear. Similar to the Nebraska songs, there's not a whole lot going on musically. It's kind of a repetitive dirge, but the story just sucks you right in. Bruce is so good with characters on the ropes, with their backs against the wall and at the edge of societal acceptance.
