Re: A parade, or a marathon?! (A Grand Parade reviews)

First of all, respect and appreciation to all of those who actually managed to review all these songs. I did not have that time availability these two weeks. I listened to most of all of them. FWIW, I believe my votes went to: Agony Sauce BGM Brian F Caravan Ray Chebuctones Dr. Spectaculars Power Ci...

Re: A parade, or a marathon?! (A Grand Parade reviews)

Ross Durand : I could totally hear this as a fully-produced country ballad, with a string section accompaniment, and it'd win a Country Music award. I'm sorely tempted to try making a remix of this along those lines. I'm gonna make a note of this for later. Thanks for the review and the kind commen...

Re: A parade, or a marathon?! (A Grand Parade reviews)

The Seamus Collective OMG that’s a tuba! I honestly thought it was a fart. Go back and listen to the first two seconds. Total fart! And I played tuba as a kid. OK, now that that’s settled. Nice tune, and I was pretty amazed when the full horn section kicked in! Sounds great, then ends kind of abrup...

It was bitter sweet to log in today to see what the next song due date was and The Seamus Collective's win for "Morning on Bourbon" in the 15 years ago tab. I was part of that collective, and did not know Wayne as well as Ken and the rest, but he was incomparable in spreading joy through m...

Re: SpinTunes 18 Round 1 Challenge 'Color Me Impressed'

To Whom it concerns, regarding "Ultimate Gray": I had no idea what color to write about, so for alternative inspiration I went and looked up the Pantone color-of-the-year for 2021. There are two of them, but the first one listed was “Ultimate Gray,” and I thought, “I can work with that.” T...

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.
