Circle of Titles VII

Hi there! It's me, Nick Soma, not Jon Eric, as you can see. ;) Yet Nur Ein is coming to a close once again, and I don't know about Jon, but anyway someone's got to do the CoT thing, 'cause that's SF tradition as of now, right? So here's a thread for a start. I have no experience hosting a Circle of ...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Seven

Wow, haven't been following this for the last two weeks (some infection starting out as a standard laryngitis, then worsening - I've fully recovered though! :)), but I'm kind of proud of my divination power, since I suspected a final Skub vs. Merisan duel from the beginning! I wasn't the only one wh...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Not sure I’d have been ok with the lyrics anyways. Even reading along with the lyrics I got lost in the first verse at 1 point. Hopefully you and everyone else, uh, "got" the lyric of my song. Maybe I wasn't being clear enough, I wouldn't lay the blame on you. So, if any of you have no clue what it...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Nick Soma: Sounds like you’re recording from behind a duvet. Apart from that I dig it, or what I can hear. I like the c-86 style chords and guitar, although some guitar notes are way louder than the others which is weird. The relentless drums start to wear a little bit after a couple of minutes. I ...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Jerkatorium's back-to-school lyric reminded me of a nice TMBG track I figured I'd post here just for fun. It would easily have made a top spot in Nur Ein VII Round Five.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Wow, really great songs by everyone. Glad I don't have to judge ;)

Every time I listen to my submission though, it bugs the hell out of me. I am still really proud of that composition, but the recording is total shit. :x

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

somebody proposed a challenge where they wanted to specify the genre of music you'd have to create. if you think this is bad, you should be glad i vetoed that one :) -bill And seriously, I wouldn't mind that either. We had "Metal", "Waltz", "Guitar and voice only", and, suggested by me, "Psychedeli...

Re: Nur Ein XII_ Round 3_ Song Bio

I might add some notes on my own song later. Suggestion: rename this as a general Nur Ein (or perhaps Nur Ein XII) song bio thread, so we don't have to open a new one for every round (plus, it's not like many Einers would post here, as of yet...)

Re: NUR EIN! A Sense of the Absurd lyrics

Nick Soma - A Sense of the Absurd Mondegreen song: "Slow Down" by Nada Surf Alright, mi amigo, no need to guess, What we have here is a case of subliminal mess. Your guitar, I have to listen, I got no choice. And man, you ain't no Carlo Bruno, but I dig your voice. So first let me say, it must be a...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Not really pleased with my entry, but I think I did quite well with the challenge this time. :)
BTW, my voice is total shit again. You might like this one. I mean, my voice really sucks. Might sound even more like the Psych Furs this time. ;)

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Three

Nick Soma - Now I know it didn’t say the guest vocalist could be audio clips from other media, so I guess I can let that slide. That’s straddlin’ the fence in terms of meeting the challenge though. What bothers me most is that this song screams out for multiple vocalist & you don’t have them. You w...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Three

Challenge wasn't that hard this time. It said "vocalists", not "singers", which makes the whole thing a lot easier. Terry Crews, Malcolm McDowell, and the ghost of Charlie Chaplin were all delighted to feature on my track. I don't believe they have been in any Ein before.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Two

A few notes on my song: I first wanted to do something completely different, with a lot of lyrics like many of you have done. Didn't work out though. The combination of the title and challenge, to me, seemed to scream for a quasi-instrumental like PF's "One of These Days". The lyric came to me spont...

4/26/17 The Psychedelic Furs

I remember how this was started by Niveous in 2015. :) My Nur Ein XII entry for "After You" (round one) was favorably compared to the Psychedelic Furs (thanks for the compliment!), which made me search this forum; but I did not find any thread on that band. So I figured I'd just start one myself. Wh...
