Re: (Super Creepy reviews) you won't see anywhere else. #7 is jaw-dropping...

Gert Very nice. I like all the switches in arrangement, keeps me involved the whole time. This is quite an ambitious production, but you pull it off. I have a hard time hearing the lyrics, and it sounds like there might be a story going on here that I'm missing out on. VOTE glennny This one suffers...

Re: Are You There God? It's (Young Blood Reviews)

Wouldn't it be a hoot if we all submitted entries with band names consisting of snippets of HTML code? We could really mess with things.

Re: Are You There God? It's (Young Blood Reviews)

You know, listening to that fine song you linked got me to thinking about something else. And that is the difference between reviews where the chops are in question vs those where they aren't. I used to care a lot more about singing, playing, and recording in people's SF entries than I likely will n...

Re: Are You There God? It's (Young Blood Reviews)

OK, that's one sale! My master plan is working perfectly.... I had to go look at the board sections to see that yes you are correct that there is no designated place to announce any releases of real album or anything. There's the Concerts and Events section, but that's more for live gigs. Anyway, ye...

Re: Are You There God? It's (Young Blood Reviews)

This week did have a lot of entries, hence fewer reviews I guess. There were some that didn't engage me (perfect way to put it) and I guess I keep listening to those until I come up with something that I'd suggest is why that is, or that might turn that around, as an audience member, skewed by know...

<something> Calico Like the rappers in the fight, you are working too hard to be clever with the lyrics, and a lot of the rhymes feel forced. "plight/fright", "survival/rival", for example. "Sparrow without marrow" doesn't really make a lot of sense, it feels like a rh...

I've always felt sad for the people left behind but also feel very strongly that if you want to off yourself, it's your body, it's your life, it's ultimately your right to do so. Sorry, I don't want to stir things up at all, but I just have to vehemently disagree with this sentiment. It's like sayi...

Re: Are You There God? It's (Young Blood Reviews)

If I don't call your song out here specifically, this is probably your review: Songs I didn't review Ordinary. Decently-played instruments, recorded well-enough to get the song across, but sounds like countless thousands of other songs already in existence. Your vocals were somewhere between good en...

I used to hang out here a long time ago, and it was fun, but I got burned out. Today I felt like doing some reviews for some whocares-ish reason. But I'm only goin...

Re: "We Are All Famous" by Jim of Seattle

Thanks for buying it! I'm still not at all used to the idea of people listening to some song of mine when I'm not physically there demanding they do. I watched the Hawks emerge victorious yesterday with the guys who run the record label, and at some point in the third quarter I committed to a second...

Re: "We Are All Famous" by Jim of Seattle

Well it sure don't come cheap. (kidding) Seriously though, the label that released the thing has built up some cred over the decades, so now some people will listen to anything they put out. Ironic, since I'm such a black sheep for them. And after all is said and done, all I'm really getting out of ...

Re: "We Are All Famous" by Jim of Seattle

Ted Gioia is this semi-famous jazz historian dude who also listens to a lot of new music, and I just thought I'd brag a moment that my album made #3 on his Best of 2013 list . Kinda cool. Since it's about half Song Fight songs, I owe a huge debt. Also made #12 on a list from a magazine in the UK to...

Re: hey listen to my new song (thread)

I never thought I would do an Album-a-Day project, but turns out I did, and it's also a Christmas album. Nothing fancy, just 26 Christmas songs played the way Christmas has always sounded to me, with record scratches on an old hifi. Available for free on Bandcamp: http://jimofseattle.bandcamp.com/al...

Was Revolution #9 actually a cover??

Recent evidence has come to light that the Beatles' famous sound collage "Revolution #9" was actually a cover of a previously unknown work from the 1930's. Check it out.

According to my extremely scientific Friend Flood Detector, there were no friend floods this week, though it looks like there were a couple friend droughts.

Re: The Song Fight Vote History Widget

Average Votes per Entry, with trend lines

The votes were sinking and sinking, and then the rules were changed to allow multiple votes per fight. Since then, votes per song have remained constant for five years. Interesting (depending of course how you define "interesting")

That's why I said "Depends how you look at it". By one definition, Andre is the least successful. But he's certainly received more votes than, say, Russell Okung, left tackle for the Seattle Seahawks. (And Okung's been injured the last few weeks, so it's not like he hasn't had time to ente...

Fascinating facts from the Song Fight Vote History Widget . * Paco del Stinko has the most entries in SF history at 148. He has won 4 times, but it took him over 70 entries and 3 years to win his first. * Least successful Songfighter? Depends on how you look at it. Cases could be made for: - The Wea...
