Re: SpinTunes 19 Round 4 'What Was That Noise?' Challenge, reviews and comments

As far as the challenge goes, I feel like almost all competitors did sub-par on the drone/pedal point requirement. To my ear the drones were mostly de-emphasized, hidden, and/or tacked-on, and that was a bit of a disappointment. That accusation of half-assery is a great segue to my nominal-effort re...

Re: SpinTunes 19 Round 3 'Let's Circle Back to That' Challenge, reviews and comments

EVERYBODY GETS SIX WORDS: Melody Klein - Too Long : Meta, slow, moody. Easily top four. See-Man-Ski - Get Back (to where you came from) : Rocking, engaging, energizing. Definitely top four. Firefly - Firephyte : Builds well. Interesting. Unequivocally top four. Phlub - Eternal Return : Weird, capti...

D'oh!

Sorry. How did I get this old without knowing saxophones are woodwinds? Time for me to go watch an 'Introduction To Music' course on YouTube.

Re: Songfight Live 2022 IRL Interest Poll

I will try my best to attend an in-person 2022 SFL if one happens. I highly recommend them, whether you're going to perform or not (though you absolutely should perform). Also the online component is wonderful and I second fluffy's call for more frequent not-live shows throughout the year.* I like t...

EVERYBODY GETS SIX WORDS again: Melody Klein : Could easily be half as long. Richard Shakespeare : Excellent interesting choices. Chorus needs oomph. Star Bear : Great song if you like sadness. Dented Bento : A fun oasis in this playlist. See-Man-Ski : Nice piano work, great vocals. Plodding. rackw...

Re: Gift of Music 2022? Circle of Titles 2022? Original Flava 2022?

I'm game for a 2022 Original Flava. I always prefer Sidefights for/about Songfighters: Original Flava, Hxaros, etc. It's been 5 years since the last Themesong Fight , and there's been plenty of new blood since then, I'd be into that too. Of course SpinTunes is starting up soon, and then I suspect Nu...

To be perfectly clear, someone (me) is beating you in the quantity of points department but not in the quantity of songs department. I deviously gamed the bonus s...

OK, I've updated this page with the Third Cat and Hanky Code covers. Did I miss anything or anybody else? Thank you for updating the leaderboard, but I have a few corrections for it - obviously not important or urgent, but if Paco Del Stinko follows through on his threat to do more random songs fro...

Re: Covering random songs from the archive

Great Paco Del Stinko cover Third Cat. Such a challenging project too - I listened to the cover, then went back and listened to the original (at http://www.songfight.org/music/art_bomb/pacodelstinko_ab.mp3 since the jukebox isn’t responding), then listened to the cover again. Then I realized I was p...

I submitted a short (less than 2min) video earlier this morning, the process went very smoothly for me. I apologize for getting it in so late past deadline, I hope you can still squeeze it in somewhere.

Re: Hanky Code wants to cover your song

Thank you for the feedback. RE: HPH, oops brain fart. Covered by Hanky Code. I've just gone back and changed the post.

As if that weren't enough, I just realized that I uploaded these three without appropriately tagging them. I'll do that and upload corrected versions tomorrow.

I apologize for getting these out so very very late. When I started this project I had a lot of free time and it seemed very possible to churn out two songs per week indefinitely. Things got busy immediately after I started this thread, and they haven’t let up. But I still happily intend to do all o...

I’m 99% sure I’ve made this observation before, but I love how the waveform gives your Soundcloud image an excellent moustache.
Oh hell yes, you've sold me on a new look. Around this time next year you're all going to be asking, "Why is Gene Shalit at SFL 2022?'
