Re: Song Fight! Live(Stream) - September 2020

I sent some videos to the dropbox. I messed it up a bit and might have sent the same video twice but hopefully from the file names it's fairly obvious which order they go in.

Re: High and Higher

Balance Lost The people in the street Carry umbrellas any time of year The dust sticks to my skin The water is murky but I'm going in I got nothing to be late for today I'll ignore the pressure I made They're coming for you And staying for me We'll get high, high, higher than they'll ever be A pack...

I have no idea what genre my work in progress falls under but you can dance to it so that's good.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it'll be a dark, heavy genre :)

I'm in and I'm trying my hand at synthwave (it seemed apt for the challenge), probably failed miserably but we shall see.
Looking forward to that. Love a bit of synthwave, me.


This week I tried to channel Sonic Youth and it came out a bit more like Versus. But that's fine. I like Versus.

Re: Face down in a mud puddle (Floating Away Reviews)

Philthadelphia Cthollins: This has potential but I have a few problems with this recording. When almost every instrument comes in they're out of time or they miss the beat. I would recommend a few more takes to get that right. The vocals are mostly decent but sound terribly strained on the "floatin...

Re: Floating Away

Balance Lost (On) the air the smell of something stops you From the road down to the see and all along A formation of fireflies that want To show you something just before the dawn But maybe now is not the time to learn Just slip back into your comforts You wait all night A new disguise There's no ...

Re: Hold me down I'm (Floating Away prefight)

I spent so long fruitlessly trying to think of some lyrics for this that I had to sacrifice an even remotely interesting song structure. So I'm in with a track that doesn't really go anywhere and has probably the most generically vague set of lyrics that I've ever written. On the plus side my wife w...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

This was great, guys! Thanks for another entertaining episode. Re: the Balance Lost song; you are absolutely right, I should have been in the final :D . But the guest singer is Melvin, who was a regular from about 2005-2008 and a member of the Worldy Self-Assurance. I also prefer his voice to mine w...

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

“Bring your A game” is a tough challenge, IMO, because it leaves no direction if you aren’t inspired by the title. RIP Nur Ein XI. Surely it leaves any direction, but I understand it can be tough. Obviously Nur Ein is not meant to be easy and one test of any songwriter is what they can produce when...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Six "Homestretch"

I thought all 5 songs were worthy of the finals. I loved all 5 of them. I wasn't going to be surprised with any combination for the finals. I think we are very lucky Balance Lost (Balance Regained) wasn't in the competition anymore. That was an amazing track Pete! Say Hi to Melvin for me! Also, +1 ...

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

I truly don't think anyone has ever failed to rise to the challenge of Round 7. There's just something so dramatic about that final showdown, how could you not bring your A-game? That's probably because you're a very kind a generous person, unlike myself :D But while the event itself is certainly d...

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

I'm not sure what this challenge is supposed to mean. Is it to sound like the band A? Do you have any examples of bringing a your game? * I think clarification is needed, and I'm pretty certain I'm not the only one (naming no names). * I think now would be a good time to reminisce about Nur Ein fina...

Happy 20th Birthday Song Fight! Story time! I had just left university in the summer of 2005 and being back home with my folks meant I had much less time and motivation to write songs like I had been when I was a perma-stoned student.
