You know, I wanted a brass section on my song. Like "Ring of Fire" or "Spanish Flea". I tried to have midi ones but it was just too fake (still do have midi strings tho). I should have called in Steve Durand.

Well. I'm in.

I didn't get the chance to do anything more with it, so it's a few hours on last sat and a few hours on sun morning before I left for my work stint.... sigh. Oh well.


HEY! I'll be in it though, AND I'll review!!!! That's right. Cause Songfight IS ALL ABOUT REVIEWS!!!! Just ask anyone.

I'm not going to make it. I hear sweet layers in my head that I just needed a good couple days and a few afternoons to record and I just got too damn busy making stupid money so that I can pay my stupid bills.
.......but I just saved a bundle on my auto insurance. :P
Can't wait to hear the wonders that will soon bestow us.

Wow, this is cutting is close but ...

I missed out on some good times/pot for this song, so I hope you all enjoy it. :wink:

ps - can't say I'm entirely pleased with it upon second listen. Not bad though.

2) Supplication unto the Fightmasters: please post the latest file. Had some unexpected time to tweak the mix at the last minute. Danke, gracias, merci and all that thank you stuff.

Awww man I was hoping to get in the ring with you Paco. I love listening to your entries.

Well I'm done. Started at 3 in the morning and finished by 8. I'd written it the afternoon before and it all blewup.

First SF against THC and Leaf, so it should be kind of fun.

Prepare to have it roll right over you!

The Worldly Self Assurance is only at 75% strength, hence The North American Self Assurance (NASA).
Furry Pedro is on an island somewhere on holiday away from his gear.
However Melvin, Frisbee,and myself dished up a nice little rocker.

Paco, you know you don't get 2 weeks off, you better be in the next fight!

Yeah, it's gonna be a fun one to listen to and watch. Good times! Glennny, I dropped the ball here but for the record, I was working on an in the drunk tank tank. I'm revving up for next title, though.

I have to say that while I consider my entry to very good compared to my usual standards in terms of performance and production (like the vocals in the final version not being the first take.. stuff like that) there will be so much competition for good sounding songs such that I maybe would get further by not bothering with all that stuff and just doing something weird to get attention.

Naw, fuck that I regret nothing.
