Den, Andy Balham, one half of masters of grip is a good friend of mine. If you want I'll ask him for the lyric to sincerity machine ...

How are those covers going? I fixed some accounting errors on the leader board. Inflatable Vegetables are in first place with 3.5 followed by user at 3.0. I think Sunday I am going to try to get on the board myself.

My random assignment is: http://sfjukebox.org/songs/bag_of_bones ... 0Sparklies - which I haven't heard but I rather like!

Can't say for sure how soon I'll get it covered - but I will do it sooner than later. Cool.

Ok, I need some impetus to do a song. I'm slacking. Give me one, please!

I'm going to try to do one finally. My first time out I used five skips before I got to this:

In case it got missed (thanks, Glennny!) my live recording of mine is here
http://youtu.be/id-ttNyGHTo
from my SFL/Portland set, with the relevant bits beginning at about :55 or so. I'm afraid it's a bit off the cuff-ish :) I think it counts, hopefully. :)

Oh wow, that's awesome, nice work DJRD! Ken texted me to get back to watch but I didn't get the message. I think I was out trying to get some food from the bar at that point, my bad. I will get that onto the leaderboard when I have a chance, hopefully tonight. And sure, bonus points for live and/or video?

OK, leaderboard updated with DJRD's cover, as well as my Paco cover. This cover was so fun! Paco's just shredding on bass the whole time, it's so awesome. Hopefully he will appreciate my homage to his style in this song.

OK, batter up Albatross!

http://sfjukebox.org/songs/late_for_bab ... rs%20Apart

5 minutes long and a duet (at least). Good luck! :) At least the lyrics are posted. I thought I recognized Niveous's voice. I wonder if that's Lonbobby on music or something...? And who's the woman singer?

I just relaxed the rules about skipping a little bit. You can skip up to six times every time without a penalty. There are so many seriously bad/weird songs in the archive that I personally have no interest in covering! :)

Thanks to that awesome BeepBox link fluffy posted (thanks fluffy!), I finally finished this. I had to break it into 4 parts, since they only give you 16 bars to work with.

Part 1+Part 2+Part 3+Part 4=the whole thing attached at the bottom:

Hey, this is really good! Vox are a little loud compared to the rest of the track, but they are done really well. You should have this kind of fun with your vocals more often!

There's a hidden-ish menu that lets you increase the bar count. :)
