We have some new people around here, so I'm just wondering.

<b>Note:</b> Not looking for a long history, 'cause who wants to read that? Just a summary will do (like Niveous below), if you need to say more than a link or name.

I found Song Fight after being on the IUMA board for a few months. Being there made me long to find fellow soingwriters and a google search later I found Song Fight. I dug the concept. And then I heard MC Hawking's "What We Need More of Science" and G&R's "Need Stilts" and I knew this was the place I was looking for.

Marcus Kellis's livejournal.

I'd heard of the site before, through Dumbrella, but I didn't really come check it out until I saw Marcus post a link to his "Look Good In Black" on his livejournal.

And now you're stuck with me.

I saw it mentioned several times on the AAD site which I had checked out after seeing it mentioned in musicians listings on Craigsist.

From Blind Mime, who I believe mentioned it in an email to the Tapegerm (private) mailing list a while back. However when he first mentioned it, it was in that state of suspension when the same title was up for months (the switchover to current FMs), and I forgot about it, then came back a while later on second mention by Blind Mime and found it active again ("unless i change my mind").

ps - evidently i once wrote some lyrics for "level best" so maybe that was when i found it? maybe

pps - what was the title that was up for a long time? "postcard"? i wrote some words for that too. maybe i came back a couple times!

I wanted to create a site where people submitted song titles, a title was voted on, and people wrote songs for that title. I explained it to a friend, who said "uh.. you mean like this?", pointing to songfight. So instead of wasting my time building a community from scratch, I joined this one! Woo haa!

Dr. Spectacular's Power Circus entered their Adonai song ... I'm actually their drummer, but I was left out of the recording for that song (I was at school, apparently) and our guitarist and keyboardist did the drum tracks. They told everyone to go on and vote for them, so I checked it out, and I loved it. So now I am here.

Other = I don't remember.

I was torn between "googling something else" and "link from some other website". I'm sure it was one of those two but I honestly don't remember
