Re: It's never enough... (We Did Everything We Could reviews)

Wow, lots of talent among these Songfighters.  I hope I didn't leave anyone out.  trying to post these before the results. Richard Donner Party:  I love the song structure.

Bob Sneaker = Bob Segar. Credit to my friend Rob for the inspiration. Yeah, part of that song's melody sounds like a big song of his, accidental I'm sure.
It's always bittersweet when you realize you've just reinvented the Seger. But mostly sweet. Thanks for clarifying.

Paco Del Stinko, can you explain what Bob Sneaker is? I've seen this mentioned a few times and googled it, to no avail. Thanks for reviewing

@pauley g -- no hard feelings at all. I'm here for the feedback, and appreciate it. I haven't missed a songfight since I started in January, so I figured I'd keep that streak going even if it meant submitting something late and muffled

Re: It's never enough... (We Did Everything We Could reviews)

Production isn't everything but it still is something! I have to know what you recorded this on, Fully agree. We were camping with spotty roaming data, so I didn't try to download a DAW. But I did have the built in Samsung voice recorder, which is pretty brutal. It was recorded in the woods. Fluffy...

Request: I wrote and recorded something on my phone while camping with the in-laws, but can't make it an mp3. Would anyone be willing to convert and submit it today hopefully before the deadline?

Re: Here's an alternative to (House Arrest reviews)

Aah I have an almost-finished recording of my "house arrest" but that glockenspiel thing... it's been waiting for me all week and it's still waiting. Can I make a late entry, if I ever manage to finish? I second the suggestion to post it. I haven't done reviews yet, but will include it in mine if y...

Point of clarification for a 2021 newbie: does this mean there will be 4 "abuse of power" fights in a row?

Duncan is in. Not really a glockenspiel solo, maybe a tacky pinch of glock though.

I'd be honored if you're still doing these. I've only been at it since January, so how about my first and last and one in the middle.
