Re: Nur Ein XV Round Three "Rear Window"

If anyone still needs a guest vocalist I'm willing, please PM me.

Having said that, please note that Chumpy is Jerkatorium's lead vocalist for good reason: I am not a good singer and would prefer to supply a harmonized or vocoder (your choice) vocal guest spot if called upon.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round One "Shock Value"

Ugh. Let me show the math as I see it: That word is inherently associated with a female body part. More often than not, when that word is used, it is used as a negative epithet. When that word is used as a negative epithet the user is reinforcing a negative association with the female body part, whe...

Re: Gift of Music - COVID-19 Special Edition!

This GoM was great, and I love these covers, and I love being introduced to bands and songs I'd never heard of (Courtney Barnett, Drab Majesty, Better Oblivion Community Center, etc etc etc)... but why don't we do an Original Flava instead and cover other SongFighters? I like the idea of giving a ra...

Nice video, Jerks. The lip syncing lines up so well, did that take a long time? Also, those pauses are so good!
Thank you, and yes, it did take some time. But most of our time was spent trying to extend the word "of" out to several syllables, which was obviously the best part of the song.

Re: SpinTunes 16 sign-ups and schedule

SpinTunes 16 is looking for judges, and you should be one! Help choose the next superstar band! Dave isn't on the SFBB, so he asked me to see if any SongFighters are interested. Jerkatorium is planning on competing this year instead of judging, so SpinTunes is a couple of judges short. If you have a...

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

Special thanks to everyone who posted their lyrics (not mandatory, but appreciated). Extra-special thanks to everyone who also listed where their sample came from. The judges get less than two days to listen and rank the songs, so it helps a lot.

No singer in any of the music you like has ever sung a one syllable word over two notes or deliberately left some space between some words? :P That's right. Just like that band we reviewed for the "Sing of the Times" fight: "She's buy-y-ing a stai-airway to heaven." What kind of amateur stretches "...

[...] personally I have no problem with somebody spending "only a few hours" on a song. I don't believe in there necessarily being a relationship between time spent on a song and quality of the song, personally. Does it spoil things to know I recorded the whole BSS "Thirteenth Moon" on one day in a...

He'll take a backing vocal track, copy it to another track, tune all the pitches, flatten all the pitch warble to zero, and then work out what each harmony note should be on the guitar. Then we'll tune that note on the copied track to what it should be, and then listen to it against the original ba...

SpinTunes 15 sign-ups and schedule

SpinTunes is a semi-annual elimination competition. It differs from Nur Ein in that it gives topics instead of titles, and it is only four rounds instead of eight. Also the schedule is slightly less arduous than Nur Ein - you get a little over a week to finish each song, followed by a five- or six-...

Re: Word Frequency Count in Song Fight titles

The idea came from some curiosity about whether or not "Robot" appeared in SF titles more often than "Love". It doesn't. Love = 8, and Robot = 4 (5 after the Yes, You're A Robot fight). Other interesting items: "You" (34) appears a little more often than "I" (33). That seems to contradict the alread...
