Holy Crap! That was a good batch of songs. I have no idea how I'll be judging them. Lots of listening going to have to happen.

BTW - If you submitted a song to SpinTunes 16, YOU ARE A JUDGE! Please rank and send in your email.
Are finalists also judges?

Re: Nur Ein X - Round Two

Out.

Wrong week of my life to do this, and next week probably would have been, too.

Apologies to anyone eliminated last week who might have had a spot if I had anticipated this, but I guess that's the game.

Have a good fight, all - I'll try to write reviews.

Seems to me like if something got old after two times, it would be highly qualified for the idea of getting old fast, I mean, that's REALLY fast!

Re: Nur Ein X - Round One

Ok, I'm in.

My “Tambourine” is a broken beer bottle in a capri sun cardboard box
My “Washboard”/“Shaker” is an empty Lay’s chips bag I rustled between my hands like starting a fire
My “Go-Go bells” are tuned beer bottles (Guinness Blonde ale)

Re: Nur Ein X

If I'm not mistaken, working on writing the song before the title and challenge are posted goes against the spirit, if not the rules, of the competition. I would assume this also applies to "arrangement." ( not sure how you arrange an unwritten song). Of course, it's all trust method around here so....

Re: Nur Ein X

I'm not sure that I agree with Ross that the songs were any better in the extended period, either. Ross' El Balazo is one of my favorite of all SF! songs and that was from the first EIN. First off, Thanks! Second, I din't recall ever having said I think the songs are better with an extended period....
