Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

I also work on what I call the “10% rule”. More for live performance - but can apply to songfight too. Basically - people have different tastes. Not everyone will like you, or even be interested in you or music or whatever. I often play in pubs. If I play in front of 100 people - I expect most are j...

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Hi guys. Sorry I haven't been participating much this year. What happened to the good old days of Nur Ein when you could just post crap and sail through to the 4th round? I had a holiday planned this year. I did round zero at home while packing. My plan was to do crap songs for round 1 (in Paris) a...

Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

I started working with BSS and doing my own submissions only this year. In that short amount of time I have noticed themes in feedback I have received. Some of it I agree with and want to act on and some of it, well, the constructive feedback anyways... even if I agree with it, I may actually consi...

Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

And just to make this relevant to the thread - I like to re-record what I consider my favourite songs and publish them on Spotify etc. The past reviews on Songfight from when I originally wrote those songs is an invaluable resource. Good / bad reviews do not impact I what I may think is a good song....

But, back to the question of "Acting on Feedback" - yes, you must do it - BUT GIVE IT TIME. Every song I have ever posted to songfight has been the best song ever written...that week.

Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

Songfight feedback is invaluable. The only feedback that I think that made me "act" directly was the first I ever got in my first entry way back 15 years ago - when Richard Wreckdom wrote something along the lines of ..."whatever it is inside you that makes you want to make music - find it and stab ...

If two nights of Songfight Live isn't enough singing, this is my favorite karaoke bar. It's in a Middle Eastern restaurant/hookah lounge/belly dancing place/gay bar in the middle of a trailer park on top of a hill at the edge of town. STOP. THE. PRESSES.

bgm did a Song Fight entry so I figured he'd be back for Nur Ein but I don't think he is. I didn't hear Ben Krieger in there but he's a bit of a chameleon so who knows. I think two years ago there were seven returning champions but this year has topped that. (Is your "x2" meant to indicate folks th...

There is an election in Australia soon. I have already voted pre-poll. I am currently writing and recording in France*. If the people mentioned in my song get re-elected - I’m not going back.

all you need is a fade out for the challenge.
Of course there will be a fade out. All proper songs have a fade out.

Re: 4/23 Spotify

I like Spotify. It is how I listen to music now. I have a few songs on there (distributed by CDBaby), ones that I have polished to the point that I consider “finished”.

I don’t think pandora is available in Aus.
