Hi, Toadfrog - on "Star Spangled Banner Waving Somewhere," you'll see the marks of the harvesting birdie, which looks like this: ^^
That means somebody has already harvested the song for inclusion in the Digital Tradition - it just hasn't made it to the published edtion of the Digital Tradition yet. It takes a lot of work to process songs, so we don't always get them right away. They're available through Mudcat search immediately after they're posted, but we take a lot of care and time in the process of including songs in the Digital Tradition. I bookmarked the other song, and I'll harvest it when I get back from vacation unless Jim Dixon or Susan of DT beat me to it.
I do have to say that composed songs are less likely to appear in the Digital Traditon than traditional songs.
