Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

Currently: listening to CDs, getting excited for Sebadoh and Tobin Spout tonight and thinking, "well, their recordings are even scrappier!" In as of this morning. Fuck ya! I listened to a lot of Sebadoh during my 90s lo-fi period, and Tobin Sprout is one of my favorite songwriters ever. I...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Your melody on "Cross my heart and hope to die, / I had my fingers crossed each time" is straight from the Beatles' "All My Loving." Heh, yup. I was terrified that Ryan would realize that and at the last minute and we'd be forced to change it, but luckily he didn't. I'm calling ...

Re: Why, hello to you!

Howdy Wendy, welcome to SongFight!

Historically the phrase applied to new folks here is "please be awesome", but having heard some of your stuff you already seem awesome, so please cary on. Hope you have fun in Nur Ein and stick around for some of the bi-weekly fights here.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

So are any of the other judges going to weigh in with reviews that might help explain their voting? One judge in particular seems to be a bit of a statistical outlier, and I'd love to hear what they liked and didn't like about some of the songs.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Loving all the reviews folks, keep 'em commin'! 73 Keep It Beautiful - Sha-la-la-la-la. The backwards guitar swells and solo sound super musical, and are not at all a burden on the song. Kept it beautiful, good job. Something about the interval from 'fingers' to 'crossed' is super familiar to me, an...

Re: NUR EIN! Fingers Crossed lyrics

Fingers Crossed by Jerkatorium When I told you that I love you well I had my fingers crossed. When I said that I’d be true to you, you better bet my fingers were crossed then too. Cross my heart and hope to die, I had my fingers crossed each time and so that’s why I won’t apologize for any of my lit...

Great song, about a great band, I'll probably listening to this all day, as my transformation into a complete narcissist concludes. Technically we sometimes do Ska, as opposed to reggae, as an...

Re: Just a drop in the (Ocean of Blood prefight)

I did a google search. Apparently there is a small niche of viking/ doom metal bands that use accordion. I listened to 30 seconds of Finsterforst, but didn't hear accordion. You can see it and hear it in this video. This link is about 10 seconds away from DOOM METAL ACCORDION! https://youtu.be/PLvj...

Sounds great Noma, I really dig it. I thought both recordings were actually quite listenable on their own, not bad!

Re: Themesong Fight 2017

So far only two submissions, so yeah, I think a a deadline extension is in order. Let's push it out a bit.

New deadline: Monday April 10th 10:00am Pacific.

You can either PM me and attach the audio, or email it to me chumpy dot wumpikins at gmail dot com.

Re: Themesong Fight 2017

Thanks for the heads up Fluffy. So, I assume other folks folks may also need a bit more time? We're just a few days shy of the deadline, and I haven't received any submissions yet, which seems like a pretty good indicator. Well, that is unless everyone is like us, who tends to submit everything at t...

Re: Old Friends (will at least give you Reviews)

I’d be interested to hear how you guys wrote the lyrics. Did each of you write the parts for the other to sing? Ryan pitched the "buddy song" idea (we previously had been talking about doing a sea shanty) and came up with the first few verses and chorus lyrics. Micah and I each wrote a ve...
