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.

Re: I take (Two Hits prefight)

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...

My friends, this fight is loaded with goodness - I’ve had so much fun listening, so many great songs. Here are my reviews! Berkeley Social Scene - I guess I’m the only one here for whom the Rhodes doesn’t really do anything. Once the other instruments come in, the sound is quite pleasant and there’s...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

Well, I have never met the other Madison songfighters as far as I know, but our city is awesome, it's in the middle, and I'm sure I can help rustle something up as far as a place to play and some equipment if you want to do it here, particularly if we have the option of crowdfunding a venue. I know...

Re: A support group for (The Dream Crusher Reviews)

Congratulations to Third Cat. Sorry I didn't manage to submit reviews for this one. Since my entry raised a lot of conversation on the podcast about dry vocals... I had to record my vocals on a very cheap dynamic microphone because my audio interface wasn't delivering phantom power properly. So ther...

Micah Sommersmith --Love love love the lyrics (ok, except for the "purple pants" line which I didn't really get. why are they purple? is that important?) The significance of the purple pants is twofold: On the one hand, they are a synecdoche for the narrator himself: conspicuous, memorable, loud. P...

Re: A Room With Some New Unused (A Doom With A View Reviews)

Lichen Throat- ... It sounds like you wrote the lyrics before you sang them. This is the opposite of my approach.
