My Heart Beats for This (Prefight)

Post by Who_Izzy »

You Are the Heartbeat of This Office For Sure
Due: Monday, 08/08/11 9:59am pdt
mp3 with artist name sent to fightmaster@songfight.org

subject: You Are the Heartbeat of This Office For Sure
message: Your Band Name
attachment: yourbandname_yathotofs.mp3

So, I'm seriously considering recording this the same way i perform live. Improved with just my voice and loop pedal.

Also, I hope it's okay that I made this thread

It's Office-ally okay.

Do you mean Improved or Improvised? Either way, sounds good.

I'm wondering if I should do an honest-to-goodness, down-to-earth, no-messing-about song for this one. Probably depends on whether I can sing though.

You could always collaborate with someone. That's my solution. :-)

Normally, I very much dislike long, clunky titles like this; they seem simultaneously limiting and vague. But, like the Circle of Titles prompt I received, inspiration seems to have struck nonetheless. Well, I have a concept and some lyrics. Will have to hunt for a melody.

Funny, I was just watching a whole bunch of reggie watts at work yesterday, and thinking I need to try that sometime. It'd be a great reason to justify my G.A.S. & get that Line 6 looper I've always wanted. Is there seriously not a way to do that kind of thing in Reason?

Man, I just did a song for Spintunes that would have fit this title.

I guess I'll try a different approach to it.

Reggie is who got me started.
I have the same Line 6 pedal he has, though there are others.
There's a program you can download if you're running windows called Mobius, though I've had trouble with it. There's a different program for Linux and Mac.

Having listened to MC Who Izzy's entry for "Circle Me", I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you here Kapitano.

Just for that, I'm going to offer the MC a collaboration.

MC Who Izzy, would you like a collaboration on this fight? You do the vocals, send them to me and I put some music and production stuff behind them. Right now I'm working on synthesising African drums and enormous lush strings, plucked and bowed - so they'll probably end up in the mix.

What you think?

Yup. Check your messages. Congratulations, you just got promoted to FBI negotiator.

So, is this shaping up to be a collab fight? Kapitano and Who Izzy, Juliette Echo, more Billy and the Psychotics (I'm always hoping)? Who else is jumping on the collab bandwagon?

For a cowboy love song, you need a pardner, pardner.

Ujn and I will be shrugging off our usual synthpop jackets and donning our blistering, brutal hardcore pants. But I think it's been years since either one of us has entered without a collab, so... dunno if that counts. :D
