I see what you mean. I found myself singing along. :D
Actually, do you want to do the vocals for the final version? I could do them without a problem, but it's so much more fun to collaborate! :)

Sure. Send me a copy without the vocals (you have my e-mail?). I can't promise the melody won't change a little (by my lack of talent), but I will do my best to stick to the original.

Bam.

Oh, and Hoglen's got another song we recorded last night (by his pen). I just don't have the MP3 yet but it will be here eventually. :)

Let me tell you My Secret, I've got Motivation. It may be a Social Risk to write songs, but it's not a Lofty goal. You just need a Curious Mind. Try Fighting Apathy While Seeking a Smile and just Hold Out Your Plan, for a Heart Can Only Wear a Sleeve for so long before it's lame. This paragraph brought to you by eight entries and counting.

It would seem "Before It's Lame" should be the next title. Care to run with that for inspiration, Tuuur?

I will stop at 2.

I had ideas for this weeks SF title. A love song revolving around the fact that Lego has male and female parts. And the fact that I have a penis that resembles a small plastic pimple. So do 5 of my friends.

That will remain on the drawing board.

You can do it, Wages! Oh, this afternoon, I'll need to mix down an instrumental of "Genetic Lottery" so you can sing it. Then we can count that as a collaboration and inflate your song total by one more!

Cashpoint - 15. The "album" is called 'Pun Rock'. Including two collabs with Heuristics Inc and one with Menbah! Five more written, that I might record. One more collab floating around that might make it in time. http://fawm.org/fawmers/johnnycashpoint/

baghdad - 13. Andy Balham & I doing a bit of off-white stripes guitar and drum punk out. The "Album" is untitled. I want "baghdad:bombthewest", he wants "infuriate! infuriate! infuriate!" Two more going up tomorrow. http://fawm.org/fawmers/baghdad/

Hell's yeah! :) I'll be happy to give it a shot.

I've done it twice before. So far, no completely silly or extremely experimental songs this time. Might have to change that this weekend....

Well, now that i have added Favourite lego... I have 11. So 3 more to completion proper, but i was hoping to finish the hard rain songs, that does not look likely at this time, i would have to do 6 more.

I really need to get around to listening to all of your guys's stuff i have little time for that

Finished last night. It was last night or not at all since today and tomorrow will be far too busy for writing and recording. Considering four out of yesterday's five songs were also written yesterday, I think it all came out pretty decent.

hey, so i did 14 songs. sometimes i amaze even myself.
a couple of them were pretty easy jobs, but that's okay by me :)
