Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

For example, your Grumpy Mike review is relatively lukewarm “I’ll have to see how much I enjoy this after repeated listens” Seems written as an initial impression. Maybe he’s the only judge person in the world who gave it a second chance. It was my first impression, and it grew on me as I did my ra...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

Abominominous With your previous songs I struggled to follow the story because of the lyrics. This time I couldn’t understand 90% of your lyrics without reading along on the Song Fight website. The vocals are totally lost in this mix. I enjoyed this more just reading without the MP3. I actually thi...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Two "Pump The Brakes"

Before I get to the individual reviews I just want to say that the talent level in this contest is amazing. So it pains me that so many of you either didn’t like the challenge or didn’t have the balls to really embrace it. I normally focus on the lyrics & this was a lyrical challenge. You can make t...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I wrote a new parody. Song Fighter Jonathan Mann did the music & SpinTuner Jenny Katz did the vocals.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

Boffo Yux Dudes I swear I don’t understand why people would Yoda the first line of a song. (unless it’s a Weird Al Star Wars parody) Just use your best Yoda voice, and read your first line. Don’t set the tone of your song that way. It’s more annoying when the song overall isn’t bad. Interesting sto...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

Abominominous Pawn Shop, the rock band. Lyrically it’s a little hard to follow the first time around, but with the lyrics in front of me it was easier. You had my head movin’ to the music, and the more I listen to this the more I like it. Really enjoyed the use of alliteration in this song as well....

WEW!!! Thanks for the save, Spin.
lol no problem. I actually had no idea my ranking of you was so different from the other judges. I'll try to get my reviews posted later today. I've been swamped lately & struggled just to get my rankings in a place I was happy with.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

Thanks for the heads up, but I didn't ding them in the rankings. Just dinged them by not reviewing them. So shouldn't affect the outcome at all. At least on my part.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Zero "Message Received"

For those who don’t know me, I used to run SpinTunes. I’m not a musician, I’ve only written lyrics for a few songs/parodies/jingles, and I have no real background that qualifies me as an expert of any kind. This won’t stop me from judging you & possibly talking out of my ass from time to time. How I...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

Ok, so I don't really consider myself a songwriter at all, but this is the first song (that's not a parody) that I helped write. Unless you play Minecraft on the same mini games servers as I do, or have watched my Minecraft videos, you probably won't get most of the references. That being said I've ...

I’m starting to think we should have got rid of the letter “E”, this sounds easy for you. Then the rapping...you’re just rubbing our face in this challenge like, “THIS IS NOT WORTHY OF ME...

Nick Soma - Now I know it didn’t say the guest vocalist could be audio clips from other media, so I guess I can let that slide. That’s straddlin’ the fence in terms of meeting the challenge though.
