I like the title!

I've had some hand claps on my last two tracks, so I feel like now I have to take it to the next level with the challenge, nothing but hand claps for this one.

Oh, hey. I might actually do something for this fight. I like the title but have decided to do less fights for a while (as to get some re-recording and re-mixing done for a collab project.) I just discovered that my first fight "Back From Juvie" is on the Ten Years Ago blurb on the front page. Which means 2 days ago was my tenth year anniversary of songfight.

Thanks much. I actually wrote most of a song for this fight, but I'm ill and have no voice at all so I'll be out. Looking forward to listening to everyone else's entries, though.

Sounds like the perfect opportunity to make a Song Fight! collab work! [Not necessarily volunteering], but you could ask someone on the boards to help you finish your track! I always hate when I have a half finished song with plenty of time left and don't finish a track in time for the fight (like with The Dream Crusher). Some of my favorite tracks that I've been a part of were Song Fight! collabs like "I Will Be Acquitted" or "Coming Back From Juvie", probably because they're the least likely tracks that I would have been able to come up with on my own. Anyhow, I usually dig your tracks and would hate to see a half finished song fall by the wayside with so much time left to complete your task!

That's actually a great idea. I have a few non-songfight collaborators that would possibly help out if asked as well. Not sure why it didn't occur to me except that I feel like crap.

On this fight I collaborated with one of my new musical friends up here in New England. He's a great Lyricist and songwriter but as of yet, we haven't been able to do any song fights together. He wrote lyrics for the last 2 fights but could'nt get to the studio in time to sing. A few days ago he sent me a really fun rap that he sang into his phone
. I used that recording and built the whole song around that. It was definitely one of the weirdest recording approaches I've ever used but it was a lot of fun. Figuring out the bpm was most challenging. I would have hated his great rap to go to waste though :). I think the iPhone vocal recording may become the trademark of 'The Glash'. I'm working on getting him a decent interface at his house..
Oh, and I got my 12 year old daughter in on the gang vocals and claps!

I had this done last night and then realized I forgot the handclaps. Stuck them in this morning and made it in at 9:59 PDT!

Not in... yet. I'll be even more late than I already am. Bad news is... voice is still 80% gone.. maybe 70% now (improvement, no matter how small, is still improvement.) The good news: I've a sucker.. erm collaborator to help me out. Just waiting on vox tracks to finish the mix.

So either I'll be in late or I'll have a non voting entry. Either way, I'm happy that I am able to participate.

Honestly, I'm too stressed and depressed to enter the crap I slapped together. It's horrible, even by my "standard".

I might be getting a little better at lyrics, but the machine is soooo laggy I had to render each instrument individually and import them as samples into Audition, arrange and modify - now it's just crap. This is really not been a great week - no date, I got called in to work on Friday and worked on my own for over ten hours yesterday in a hellish non-stop manner. By the time I got home I just fell asleep in my work clothes.
