Re: A parade, or a marathon?! (A Grand Parade reviews)

In case anyone else would benefit from this, I've added a thing so that you can unshuffle the names on the front page, so that if you've taken notes on which songs you want to vote for you can easily find them in the list. Just go to https://songfight.org/?noshuffle=1 and it'll keep the songs in al...

Re: A parade, or a marathon?! (A Grand Parade reviews)

I made it through! I started listening with the thought I would decide votes first and then review, and then was like "I know myself, I am never going to come back and finish these" so started writing reviews in real time as I listened to the songs--so no re-listens, none of the reviews ta...

Life got in the way and I didn't manage to work on this till about 11:30 PM last night, but I finally managed to submit a late entry that Fightmaster said should be up later today after his day of meetings!
This song has been added to the fight.
Thanks Sam!

A Grand Parade miscellaneous owl Baby, you're a loser, and that's OK Maybe you're a failure, but I like you anyway In your bedroom at twilight, I put my hands on your chest Rest my head on your shoulder So I can feel your breath And ghosts go by like shadows in the room A grand parade of all your op...

Re: I put a spell on you... (Love Magic reviews)

Add : the bubbly telephoney synths are delightful! Also loved the kind of underwater sounding ones. I enjoyed the talk-singing, and the swagger, and the lyrics. Just a fun tune all round. Agent Chaos : This one jumped out as the most interesting to me when I was listening through the first time—the...

Re: I put a spell on you... (Love Magic reviews)

Sorry for not adding a note about the optional challenge to the lyrics—I am too online, I guess, and thought it would be obvious :D



Thanks for the reviews so far. Nice fight! I will need to catch up on the late BSS addition and then do some reviews.

Re: Nur Ein XVIII, Round Five: "Choose Your own Adventure"

I probably won’t have time for a shadow this week but I thought I’d share this ska song I did guest vocals on for my friend Nate last year! 🎺🏁🕺

Re: Nur Ein XVIII, Round One: "Blind Spot"

Also... please don't "ONLY" use hand percussion. Include hand percussion. Whoops. You're only going to get horrible amounts of tambourine and guiro from me. No drums :D I wrote and recorded a shadow last minute today again. I started this with this zither my dad mailed me recently (we bou...

Re: Nur Ein XVIII, Round Zero: "Sink or Swim"

I didn't get my song recorded in time to actually enter, but it got me writing again for the first time in months so I'm happy! Maybe I should have started writing more than half an hour before the deadline. In any case, I sent in my shadow under Crown Shy and will try to keep shadowing as much as p...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

Just finished up FAWM (February Album Writing Month) and posted my album:

I have to get back to actually entering fights again! I meant to in February and somehow the whole month flew by without me managing it.

@arby I really like that wallpaper!

Thanks for all the additional liner notes/links/thoughts. Super interesting to know more of the backstory and intentions as far as your lyrics.

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Four "June Moon"

Reviews!!! This was a really hard round to rank, a lot of very strong songs and I kept changing my mind on rankings as I went through these... I do think a lot of the rankings this round came down more to judges' personal musical preferences rather than any major issues with the songs/performances/w...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Five "Novel"

I would find that totally acceptable (but again, would love an explanation in your liner notes). I’ll let the other judges weigh in if they feel differently.
