Ah I thought it would be minus 3 to get down to 20. Still, good odds for the rest of us.

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

I only count 19 names on the songlander page. Someone's missing.

I also thought the title was "Diary Thief" the whole time. I think it still makes sense for the title though.

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

I also wanted to do a song about stolen cheese.

My favourite diary rhyme so far is:

Let's start the inquiry
Into the diary burgliary


Needless to say this is not in my song.

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

Hard to write it outside the perspective of a 14 year old girl. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Pepys I probably shouldn't go on about it. It is only my opinion. But... It's not the idea of keeping a diary, but the idea that a diary has been stolen, or more precisely writing a song about the pe...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

Not a massive fan of this title. Hard to write it outside the perspective of a 14 year old girl.

I have discovered slide ukulele though guys. You heard it here first, it's gonna rock your world.

Re: Nur Ein X - Round One

Carlos - you better not be trying to steal my vibe! Impressive effort though.

This was my set up. The grey bag had some loose change in it and you can't see the torn bank statement which I used as a bass drum.

Done! Feeling good about this one. Only I hope the random number generator isn't a Ben E King fan.

Nur Ein X - The Average Circus

At the average circus We're fumbling like clowns The lion tamer's boots are missing And the lion's not around It's the average circus The trapeze act has the flu His leotard is too small And the nets are sagging too There's a chance That it might All go horribly wrong But you won't get a refund The ...

Re: Nur Ein X - Round One

I suppose this just goes to show once again that the judges are less useful than a random number generator. Perhaps we should do the scores like that too? (Please don't break any confidences this time! For the sake of my sanity.)

Re: Nur Ein X - Round One

This title really rocks. My song is coming along well and I even managed to get some good drum sounds out of a crisp packet and a torn up bank statement. I think it's almost all written now, just got to try and get it all recorded tomorrow morning - I'm away the rest of the week. I hope we get more ...

Re: Nur Ein IX- Round Three

Thanks everyone, and best of luck in the rest of the contest. It's been a good year. I'm curious, can you tell me what type of ukulele you're using? Maker, model name, where you got it, etc? You seem to have trouble keeping it in tune, and I'm wondering if it's just a problem with your instrument. I...

Re: Nur Ein IX- Round Three

Just had a quick listen and there are some really great entries this week. I don't fancy my chances.

Favourite has to be Kraut Kitten I think, with honourable mentions to Manhattan Glutton and The Chocolate Chips.

Featuring my very unmusical brother with some crude (censored) pick up lines. The title went for a bit of a wander in this round.

Re: Nur Ein IX - Round Two

Its a bit close to the line for requesting clarification? I'm assuming some people won't get a chance to respond. For me: The second part of the song, once the bass and drums come in, mirrors the first part, except minor chords and slightly darker lyrics. I.e. if the first part is G B D then the sec...

Re: Nur Ein IX- Round One

Some very quick reviews, mostly single listen. This round is between Ken and Manhattan Glutton I think. My honourable mentions go to Balance Lost, Cookie Blue, Levitt Down, Cave Dwellers. For those that want to know, my criteria are more or less: I don't care about the challenge, a novel song beats ...
