Re: Or else (Bend the Knee prefight)

Just sent mine in, late as usual. I bend the knee in contrition and hope it is accepted.

My song has a female narrator, and I had hoped to collaborate with a female vocalist, but plans kept falling through so you're stuck with me instead. Some suspension of disbelief may be helpful.

That was a truly epic podcast. My apologies to Micah, I read my review post back and I feel bad that I didn't know what to say or how to say it and ended up with a vague criticism that isn't particularly helpful.
That's okay; I would also like to apologize for saying you can suck it.

Re: Or else (Bend the Knee prefight)

I'm out of town and I had to bring my work laptop so I could work remotely. I don't have the Fightmaster email set up there, so, I'm not checking that and confirming the receipt of the songs. I'll be back home tomorrow and will get caught up on that then. Do you anticipate you'll be posting the fig...

Re: Nancy Pelosi For President! (Two Hits Reviews)

MichaSomersmith: I didn't like it at first but boy did it grow on me. I like the collage choruses and your voice and deliver reminds me of Bonnie Prince Billy. I love Bonnie 'Prince' Billy; for a while I listened to both I See a Darkness and Lie Down in the Light pretty obsessively. I would not hav...

The Undead Squirrels - Ric Ocasek called, he wants to know if you'll drive him home. The Undead Squirrels - A ramshackle tune. So loose. Your repeated cop of the chorus from Drive by the Cars puts me off. I was born in 1988 (only a decade off, Ryan :P ) and have lots of 80s pop blind spots, so I ha...

The Jerks are back in podcast form, this time joined by our special guest Owl!
I was just complaining to myself about the lack of Jerk-voices in my life.

Looking forward to burning this onto an mp3-CD and listening to it on my drive home tonight!

Re: Nancy Pelosi For President! (Two Hits Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - The best part of this song is the bridge - the instrumentation is nice and full, and the melody is very satisfying. The chorus is also catchy - the “One two!” vocals stand out and are a lot of fun, and the final line (“Keep the motor running on the American dream”) extends t...

Re: I take (Two Hits prefight)

Also, I'd like to apologize to Geech for saying his "Whichever Whenever" entry didn't earn its 4:25 run time, and then turning around and submitting a "Two Hits" entry that is... 4:25 long.

LATE AGAIN (to the tune of Mandibles' "Right Again")

Late again
Sent in my entry but it's late again
Late again
Hasn't left me feeling great again
If I turned it in on time
We'd be doing mighty fine
Instead I'm late again
Fightmaster gets irate again

Re: Don't forget to write some notes. You know... (Whichever Whenever Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - I’m so glad you unearthed this long-forgotten outtake from “Free to Be You and Me”! I don’t think many people were using the term “haters” in the 1970s, but other than that the lyrics are spot-on. The fun that everyone is having comes through very clearly, although rhythmica...

Re: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Maybe I'm jaded having written a lot of songs for Song Fight/Nur Ein/FAWM over the years, but the idea that the whole thing was leading up to her writing and performing an original song left me thinking "So what?" Music is such an important part of Rebecca's inner life, and yet she had never once c...

Re: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The series finale of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend aired last weekend, and I thought it was a great end to a great show. I thought the first half of this fourth and last season was a little weak (similar to Lunkhead's criticism of the third season, it felt like a lot of characters were just spinning their whe...
