You'll have to ask Deepthroat. Maybe it's like a Nur Ein challenge where no matter how you interpret it you will be wrong? :P

I hate to say it, because it feels like a cop out, but this title's giving me nothing. I might be able to put something together in time. Anybody else having issues? Or am I just being a baby? I mean.. I am but I guess if feel better if I wasn't alone

I've got something but the words are among the nastiest I've ever written, up there with Jay String's 'Push It' - so I'm prevaricating on whether to enter or not ... (no doubt I will)

I'm with you, man.

I have jumped back into Songfight! with gumption and wanted to continue the momentum, but came to a grinding halt after one song in. I did kind of start with something 'Tea Party-ish' ...both modern and historic. Crumpled it up, threw it out, and just decided to practice my instruments without direction, hoping for anything.

Nothing.

I have the opposite (or converse, I guess) problem. I came up with an idea, and even liked it, but time is not on my side this week. My wife and son both had sinus infections, and I had to pick up a lot of the slack. There's no way it comes together before Sunday night, unfortunately.

There's always next week...

Words written, music written, just need to tie the two up. People are going to *HATE* it. Huzzah for that.

But note, I'm not a Songfight! leader and you can always create one yourself in the future.

Thank you Hoblit! What a twerp I am. You'd think that after 20 years as an IT professional I'd have spotted that. "Taaaaxxxxiiii!" :D

Submitting a song. Will be instrumental. Is that still tantamount to treason?

Yes.

I'm sure that there is always a chance that a Songfighter will dig up that hatchet after years of constantly burying it. :)

My song doesn't show. Received e-mail confirmation long before the deadline. Was this due to my instrumental entry?

Oh. My mp3 contains "the". Hoping they'll accept it if I resend it? Probably not, huh?
