Sorry for double posting. But if you're waiting for a reply so you can start, then I'd think Gershwins Style is extremely acceptable. :)

Are you going for a kind of Promenade. (Walking the dog) sound? =D
Just incase anyone's interested im referring to something like this.

Gershwin is actually a composer, who incorporated jazz into orchestral music, like in his musical Porgy and Bess, wich is what I'm kind of going for. Here's a link

I'm also going for Bernstein, see "West Side Story", thought you probably already have!

Thanks again, I'll start it right away!

as long as the secondary non-orchestral elemane main focus of the song - then you're good.

if they are however your song will be disqualified.

it's not a hard concept people.

I seriously don't know what you're talking about, I think your song can beat mine by a long shot.

Whatever, we'll see what the judges think I guess.

Meh I guess it's alright but frankly I don't see why everyone likes it so much. Sure it's one of my better songs and I worked hard on it, but it lacks depth, it's too quiet and also I should've made more alternate melodies because all I used were like three for almost three and a half minutes of music. Yours has a much better atmosphere than mine and better mixing.

I guess right now it looks like I'm just acting modest, but I honestly have no clue why it's getting such good feedback.
