Some of the submissions are great. (Some aren't, or at least aren't to my taste.) I spent an hour or so sifting through the archives and picked out some favorites and made a mix. It's just a quick glance at what they have to offer, and there are probably more great tracks that I missed, but check it out. All MP3s are free downloads.

The asterisks mark songs that are my particular favorites, but they're all pretty interesting. Track #2 is not actually from Songfight, but MC Frontalot has participated in the past and I thought it went well in the mix. Sue me.
Notice anything? Josh Woodward made the list three times. I was curious, so I checked him out. Turns out he's got a blog and he's local to me, relatively speaking. Findlay's about two hours away. I don't know if we'll make it over to see him at a live show, but perhaps we'll take a detour on one of our trips up to Michigan if the timing is right. He seems like an interesting guy... not many songwriters use grep to write songs.
