Re: NUR EIN XV - Chupacabra

Chupacabra- Moss Palace V 1: There is no path Just leaves and branches Your heart beats fast You’re out of chances The sky is black But for the moonlight I feel a pulse Before the bite Pre-Chorus: Did you see me coming Did I make a sound Are you scared it will hurt When you hit the ground Chorus: Bu...

Re: NUR EIN XV - This Is Fine

Moss Palace- This is fine A little a black abyss of space Swirls in a technicolor place I’m looking for a state of grace In my mind Is this the peace you’re looking for They keep it locked behind a door Are you still sleeping on the floor This is fine Chorus: There’s a tear in it A cherry colored ha...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2018: Beers & Beards & Bears

I haven't posted in years but I am really excited to see everyone in Denver! It's such a bummer for the folks who can't make it. Honestly, you are all missed.

Re: Nur Ein! IX - Final round

Yes, I sang it that way on purpose.
That is my singing style.
I believe one might consider it a " grace note " in the jazzy/bluesy world.
Also, I have never heard of that other artist you mentioned, so any similarity was totally a coincidence.

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Three

Reviews...The songs styles were so all over the place this week, and I loved it! Disclaimer: These reviews do not represent Merisan as a whole. Balance Lost: Well produced, the intro is lovely. I am drawn into the bass line during the interludes. The overall melody is catchy enough. Listened a few t...

Re: Nur Ein VIII- Round Three

At Ray- "Jockey Full of Bourbon" is a fabulous song, and any comparison to Tom Waits is a welcome compliment, So Thanks! I can see how the phrasing and structure are comparable, but the genre (jazzy-speak-easy/tango-ish) itself is pretty formulaic. It seems to me that any actual similarities are mor...

Re: Nur Ein VI: Round Four

In regard to Merisan's speculative use of cacophony: To me, ones mans impression of a harmonic symphony could be to another mans ear, a loud and unpleasant mess. :wink: Given my own taste and disposition, I did feel like we managed to make a noisy and discordant racket. Smashing cymbals a little out...

Jan K said: Merisan: "You did work the title in, but it feels like a bit of an afterthought." I disagree. I make reference to colors, shades and hues throughout the entire song. I am alluding that while youth and memories fade, that my love will not. I thought it was pretty spelled out, but I am a p...

Glenny said "When i hear Joga, it sends me through time", but that even though more true for me does not sound anywhere near as good as "all is full of love".
