A few, but Brick by Ben Folds Five comes easily to mind.

Re: 10-14-15 Behind the Hits

My most successful song (by votes) was a collab I did with my friend Matt under the name Glennwood (our old band name) for "In the Valley". Not much of a story behind it, except that it was one of the two songs that I did with Matt where we had live recorded drums. I kept the mix less clut...

Re: 10/7/15 Melvin

Love the timing in Bitter Orange. The chorus is hypnotizing with his (usually great) harmony. And who can beat the line: "I follow you anywhere, curious like George".

Re: ...and then what? (prefight)

really really really wanna do another songfight song, and i'm actually inclined this time around--it's just the same ol' problems of getting around to doing it. (Baby in tow at home now, so the recording and songwriting opportunities are much more limited than before).

Hmmm, that's going to make it difficult to sing about the time that Ginger and I were abducted by aliens.


Hey, it's an honor system. If you say it, I'll believe it.

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round One

Johnny the Klob Your lyrics suck. Your music and vocals and arrangement are awesome. Worth a try - it worked for The Smiths I do enjoy Caravan Ray's reviews, which I realize opens me up to more abuse, but that's just part of being a songfighter!

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round One

I have viewed the songs once, so now it’s time for the re-views. In line with the theme, this week's judging style will be color-based. By the end, I was running out of unique colors, so please excuse me if the color doesn't make much sense in some cases. Abbott and Hines - Love the music. Very vaud...

Final mixdown tonight, submit, and keep my fingers crossed I don't place last again (though the way the audio turned out on my piano, it's almost a given).

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round One

Well, here's some good news to the other competitors-- Good chance I'm going to be eliminated this round. Set aside 2 hours for recording today--all two hours spent troubleshooting equipment. No closer to having it figured out. Going to have to once again guerrilla record. I had a 6 minute long pian...
