They Got the Echo Prize and SOCAN You

The winner of the SOCAN Echo Songwriting Prize was announced today: It's the Weakerthans' song, "Night Windows." Since this is a songwriting prize, not a performance one, here's a video of a couple YouTubers in Germany doing a decent acoustic cover of the tune.

SOCAN said in the announcement: "Voting was VERY close with Veda Hille just missing out on the top prize." So, good try, Zoilus readers. It's hard to compete with the Weakerthans' big devoted fan base.

The French prize was won by duo Karkwa for their song "Oublie pas."
