Speaking as a judge, I will be more than ecstatic to hear a tasteful instrumental or vocal counter-melody used to accentuate your song. :)

Currently: Puffing out chest in a proud display of writing, recording and mixing a song with more than 8 hours to go before the deadline. Oh, and letting the mix sit for a day so I can go back with fresh ears. Also, realizing that if there is more than an hour or two left before the deadline then the self doubt and second guessing will start to creep in. Which is kind of funny considering the lyric.

Fuck ya! I listened to a lot of Sebadoh during my 90s lo-fi period, and Tobin Sprout is one of my favorite songwriters ever. I'd be the crazy guy in the back shouting for Cryptic Shapes in between all the songs.

We're in, but I could have tweaked the EQ all night. probably making it worse instead of better, so I'm thankful we didn't finish days before the deadline.
