Re: They Know

They know, they know, but what can they do? I’m standing at a party with a whiskey in my hand Talking to opinionated guests Everyone is wise to what is really going on Everyone agree’s it’s all a mess The people in the hallway are deconstructing media The people in the kitchen are discussing CNN The...

Re: First they live, now (They Know prefight)

In with one of those cheesy prog-rock epics that occasionally beset me. I'm imagining french horns and the whole kaboodle, but when I add stuff like that it sounds even worse.

Re: First they live, now (They Know prefight)

Likewise. I have something in progress, but it needs work. It will probably still need work by the deadline, because I don't know what I'm doing, but Ill send it anyway.

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

First off, thanks for doing the podcast and reviewing everybody's songs. I admire your imagination in coming up with the idea, and your energy in getting it done, and not least your commitment and contribution to the Song Fight community. I don't follow podcasting, but I've figured out that it's oft...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene -- Opens with a big crashing guitar hook, settles into a contrasting straight-ahead beat that sets up the verse, goes quickly to a chorus with harmonies -- this has pop intentions, and does a pretty good job of realizing them, although some eccentric rhythms may be a little ad...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

. . . the guitar riff in James Owens track, definitely sounds like something I've heard before. . . The Rolling Stones always had great guitar riffs, and I was looking for something along those lines. The one I ended up with might have something to do with "Under My Thumb," which I happen...

Re: WTF Are The Modes?!

The wikipedia article covers what I was taught in school: pick a white key on the piano, any key, and march up an octave on the white keys. That's a mode. Stick to those notes in your melody (in the same or other octaves) and you're using a modal melody. But I've also encountered a broader definitio...

Re: Surft the (Indigo Wave prefight)

I just posted three verses in Ye Olde Lyric Marte if anyone needs them. They're about a tsunami.

I think I messed up and posted them somewhere else too. Not sure where those ended up.

Re: To see the truth, don your (X-Ray Specs prefight)

I'm not in this fight -- not directly anyway.

It's a great title, but what with one thing and another, I didn't come up with an entry.

Re: He lips his (Dot Dot Dot prefight)

I'm sorry to have to do this, but I sent an updated MP3 just now. The other one sounded OK on headphones, but I discovered that on my PC speakers it was really earsplitting. I had to do a remix, and since I was in there, I made an edit or two. The result is a slightly smaller file with a considerabl...

Re: You won't appreciate a kind review (Until It Happens To You reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - Brisk, tight, and clean, with a solid vocal performance (good performances all round, in fact). The appealing commercial catchiness is interrupted by a less accessible musical moment or two, but overall this has crowd appeal. dark side of the son - This runs a little long fo...

Wreckdom - the music isn’t yet posted so I’ve not heard it, but regardless of what it’s like I’m voting for you based on your lyrics alone. Truly awesome :) Since you bring it up, I was going to give Lichen Throat a shout-out for outstanding lyrics. My wife liked them too, and she actually read the...
