I'm pretty excited about this! Not sure yet if it will be mandibles or just cybronica participating.

David Bowie - Kooks


Simon and Garfunkel - Patterns


Avril Lavigne - Anything but Ordinary


This last one I'm putting in because I really do love this song, and I would love to hear it done in a song fighter's style. German optional, helpful links below the song.
Richard Strauss - Die Nacht

If anyone else wants to get a last minute entry in, I won't get to compiling the list until tonight US time probably around 7pm PDT (about 8 hours from this posting.)

Thanks everyone for submitting their links for GoM - COVID-19 Special Edition! Official entrance is now closed, although anyone is of course free to cover any of these songs for any of the participants if you wish. :-) I am pleased to announce we have rolled a natural 20 on participants! A critical success! I'll be sending out the matchups shortly, which I randomized via random.org.

Oh gosh, some really good stuff I've never heard of before in my assignments. I'm excited to take one of these on! Hard part will be deciding which one to do.

Yay! This is going to be fun. Now I just have to decide exactly how to approach this cover...to play it straight or play around with structure/tempo/genre? Probably the latter.

Step 6. Send the cover to "mikelamb" at "sheepsound.com." Deadline is 5 April 2020 by 23:59 PDT.
Do you want the file actually attached to the email (like a Song Fight submission) or would a link to download the file work better? MP3s or is another format preferable?

Either is totally fine as long as I can easily obtain the file. MP3 or FLAC is fine.

ugh my fibromyalgia has been flaring up again and I just can't focus on/produce music right now. hopefully I can dig myself out of this pain hole in time to get my cover finished (as more than just an idea in my head)

An extension is something of a time-honored tradition in these things :-) Anyone else feeling like they need some more time? Already submitted tracks can always be re-submitted later. How about deliver the songs the 11th for a bunny-day reveal?

For avoidance of doubt, consider the due date officially extended to 2359 Pacific Daylight Time (UTC-7) Saturday 11 April 2020. Songs will be posted the 12th.

I mean I dunno if a week is going to be enough for my brain/body to stop failing on me long enough for me to record anything, but I'll give it my best shot
