Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Post by Niveous » Mon Jun 10, 2019 4:54 am

The end is in sight but the true toughest challenge remains!

Submit an original song by June 17th at 12:01 AM (EDT) that fits the following criteria

Title: Survival
Challenge: Bring Your A Game

It's time for you to do whatever it is you do best. Go for broke. And this time, it's not the tastes of 5 judges you are dealing with. The finals are voted on by the judges as well as the competition who were eliminated during this year's Nur Ein.

Send your MP3 to nurein.sidefight@gmail.com

Good luck!!!!

This song is more in my head than the U2 song was during Where the Streets Have No Name

Hi guys. Sorry I haven't been participating much this year.

What happened to the good old days of Nur Ein when you could just post crap and sail through to the 4th round?

I had a holiday planned this year. I did round zero at home while packing. My plan was to do crap songs for round 1 (in Paris) and round 2 (while cycling through the Loire Valley), then in round 3 I would be in a Cornwall fishing village for a week where I could concentrate a decent song. Then Round 5 back home Tooowoomba and I win.

But no...you bastards had to change things didn't you.

Imagine my delight to see effing Frankie effing Big face and offing Glenn effing Case and effing PUKE or whatever he calls himself nowadays re appears again . Too much competition!!

SCREW YOUR BASTARDS.. I dont mind being knocked out in round 1. I HAD A LOVELY HOLIDAY!!!! (it was actually fabulous - I am glad I wasn't trying to wring songs - that would have been dumb!!)

Oh...and weirdly - the very strange song I did in round one which was recorded in Paris toilet could actually become useful to me - since it was written - Australia has become a neo-nazi state - so my paranoid rantings were quite prescient.

Thank you Nur Ein

It was a very strong comp this year. Well done all. See you next year.

You guys should know that The Dead Don’t Die is a pretty fun movie. Sturgill Simpson has a pretty cool guitar in it too.

Wow, great songs! Amazing work from the finalists, very impressive. Seems like after some fatigue last week you all got second winds and really went all out. Awesome!
