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

I listened to your cover Glenn. I like it better than the PRG version. You used timeless orchestration and you're a far better singer than that dude. That said, it still had the same effect. It triggered an uncontrollable urge to listen to BB King: How Blue Can You Get https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

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

This is how I've most often heard Amazing Grace, so I found the Max Bombast usage to be really cool and tame.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

No, if you have immunity the judges don't rank the song. You are passed on to the next round automatically. Which has a weird Nur Ein quirk ( weird for a survival contest like Project Runway or Top Chef), that the winner is immune from winning.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Four "No Memory"

Rain can't win immunity for winning round 4. Nobody can. So why won't her song be ranked in round 4? Obviously she has the luxury of not submitting without consequence, but if she does submit, why not rank that song?

These guys were my brothers friends, mine too, but through my brother.
Pretty much the whole album is this challenge, "Flight of the Veritech Fighters" especially.

They used to play the demolition parties. Headlined by Demolitions Ho!

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

....Your job is to find one or more that you like and use samples from it in your original song. You can chop them, pitch them, edit them as much or as little as you like. Samples can come from famous songs that we've all heard,........ but to re-contextualize the sample in your original work. .......
