Re: Nur Ein IV: Round One

Wow, what another another great batch of songs! Playing "if I were a judge" my top five would be: 1. Howl Down the Chimney. 2. WreckdoM. 3. Frankie Big Face. 4. Tiny Robots. 5. Nigel Clements. Rounding out the top ten in alphabetical order would be Paco, Quimby, RG, Ross, and Signboy. As some of you...

Re: Nur Ein IV: Round Zero

As others have said, this was an excellent, excellent set of tracks all around. You all deserve a cuddly little puppy. But I'd like to call particular attention to a couple of my favorites in the fight (round?). First, the much under-appreciated Howl Down the Chimney. Tep, that was sheer genius my f...

Re: Nur Ein IV: Round One

ROUND ONE of the NUR EIN starts now! Song must include 2 verses, a chorus, a repetition of the chorus and a solo. in that order? Seriously though, we were talking about this on IRC. I thought the chorus needed to be repeated twice in a row (i.e. the end of the cock track). The consensus was that wa...

It's like the template for a Cock track! (Cock's always been a bit on the short side.)

Re: Nur Ein IV: Round Zero

I was too busy seeing she called out 1983, as that is exactly what reve said. :P Yeah. "1983 sound" was an explicit goal this time around. So much so that I wanted to avoid using synthesizers developed after 1983. But somehow a JX10 (c. 1986) did crawl in there towards the end. STYLOPHONE!!! ...thr...

Re: And all I got was this lousy jumpsuit (Back From Juvie)

So a week later, the songs that remain the most memorable are those submitted by the Durand brothers . While Steve's entry was my pick for the fight right off the bat, it should be noted that Ross's entry has been on heavier rotation in my brain. Like a lot of his songs, it works well on a variety o...

Whoah. That puts you in a narrow demographic. You are almost certainly between 33 and 36 years old. Statistically, 34 or 35. 34?

Re: Like a pair of sunbathing mambas (Green Eleven reviews)

I'd be curious to see a big graphical map of songfighter musical tastes. Shoot, me too. Someone should develop the SongFight Multiphasic Musical Taste Inventory (SMMTI), and refer to it fondly as "the Smitty." Example questions include: 28. If forced to chose, would you rather listen to Jandek or T...

Are you playing a variax on sitar there at the end? I've done a lot of experiments on my very first electric guitar (an Epiphone strat copy), finally turning it into a sitar by grinding a homemade buzz bridge out of stone. Dude. You are a total, total genius. Did you figure out what to do yourself ...

Note: people who don't post lyrics don't simply get a zero from me. I'm not that mean. Just don't expect full marks for the lyrics if I don't review them.

Got a question though - if I feel obligated to review when I send in a song, but I have to sort through this much garbage to find a few good tunes, is it wrong for me to stop participating in the review threads?
