Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Great stuff this year. Congrats to Vowl Sounds!!! PS- if y'all are wondering what happened to Brookes and I doing reviewing, there is a reason. No, it's not because we got married. That just coincidentally happened during the competition. The reason is because we are planning to do a review podcast....

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't write a song called "Wild Thing". Just my 2 cents.
Tone Loc would disagree.

Sacred Cow Challenge

Hey folks, Would anyone be interested in doing an on-going challenge where you are given a very familiar title and asked to make a song with that title? An example would be Round 5 of this year's Nur Ein where the title was "Where The Streets Have No Name". It was interesting to hear how the competi...

Re: Songwriting competition judging mechanisms

For SF, maybe there should be two tiers of voting 1. As it is done today, anyone on the internet could vote for any two+. 2. Any SF member could rank them best to worst (either precise rankings or, perhaps more simply, in three tiers), provided she includes written or podcast reviews to explain. An...

Caveat: No U2 references
Is that for real or is that copy/pasta from the first post of the Round Five thread...?
Of course it's real. Who wants U2 references? Let's keep Nur Ein U2 free.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Five "Where The Streets Have No Name"

I understood what you meant. You can’t have a scene in a bar where the jukebox is playing “where the streets have no name” and you can’t have a lyric where you say “we danced all night to where the streets have no name”, etc. This isn’t a hard challenge to understand, just to pull off. But I actual...

Re: Avengers: Endgame

I agree with that worry. Time travel makes for messy storytelling. It's a Pandora's Box that they can never close again. Welcome to the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse.
