Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

Micah Sommersmith - ... You spend too much time explaining how boring these suits are. Get it done in 1 verse so your song doesn’t start to get boring. Then write another verse about the secrets you mentioned in the 3rd verse. Micah - ... You gave me a little information, but not enough: what are y...

Thanks! I had fun with it, though I was definitely aware that I was treading into the danger zone at both ends.

Re: NUR EIN! - Elevator Men lyrics

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Fascinating spread of points there. Particularly the fact that the top two songs didn't get a 10. Congrats to BSS! May the statistical analysis resume... Ahem, there are actually three songs in the top two slots, one of which did in fact score a 10. :) Congratulations to BSS, their song this round ...

NUR EIN! A Sense of the Absurd lyrics

A SENSE OF THE ABSURD Micah Sommersmith She’s got a keen sense of the absurd Play her a song and then ask her what she’s heard And she’ll recite back every word Though you may find that the meaning’s somewhat blurred Like Michael Jackson was a misinformed geologist Billie Jean was not his lava Elton...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Three

check out my entry for "Oh My Soul" The singing was much better in "Oh My Soul", but could still benefit from having multiple vocalist. Was a pretty epic creation though still. Hmm, where have I heard this suggestion before? Oh yes! Again, great song and I'm glad you were able t...

Non-optional challenge: Two or more guest vocalists, each appearing in a separate section of your song. Question: Can multiple individuals appear together in a section (essentially as one guest), as long as there is at least one other section featuring someone else? For example: If I have a friend ...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

I'm sure I've used lots of positive adjectives to describe Jerkatorium songs, but I don't thing "beautiful" has been one of them - until now. Really nice job Ryan and Chumpy - your song took me by surprise, in a very good way.

Congrats to Merisan! There were so many good songs in this round, as others have already noted. I think that accounts for part of the large disparity in judges' scores - when everyone is jostling for the top, a small difference in opinion translates to a very different ranking - I noticed that every...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Micah Sommersmith- I enjoy you backwards vocals. You took a similar approach to the Cavedwellers. I’d love to see your phonetic backwards-English notes, if you approached it like I did. Love all the lyrics in this song. Very cool stuff. Thanks for the kind words! I wrote one verse, recorded it and ...
