Just enjoyed this little ditty, the only entry by Jesus Barbedwire Suicide, for "Fax Machine":

Kissing Contest really rocked in their winning "Standing in the Death Car" entry:

I wonder what the story was with those guys? I seem to find some indication on the Interwebs that they showed up for one of the first SF! live events?

There's a lot of story with those guys (Ficus & Baron). They made frequent appearances at SF under various monikers: Kissing Contest, Lemon Party, Next Contestant, and a few others. One of the two used to post on the old version of the forum as "Ranch on Suede".

I just listened to this old Patrick Clayton song, for "That's the Spirit". It's really good! Check it out:

http://www.songfight.org/music/thats_th ... hespir.mp3

Whoa, now I'm listening to Frankie going falsetto over some Phil Collins sounding backing tracks, for his "Run Free". I feel like I've heard a different version of this song somewhere, like a cover or something?

Then you might be interested in this -

The Rocketeers (new band with Jeff Travis Henderson, Big Crouton, Brendan Schmidt and myself) are coming out with an EP within the month featuring a new recording of this song. I could pm you when we put out the EP if you want.

I just listened to c.layne's Song Fight! entries from oldest to newest. All good stuff and it's really cool to hear his sound evolve over the years:

he's also done a lot of really great songs not for songfight, like his shark week album, totally worth checking out.

I really liked this Seamus song from the "Big Yankee Fan" fight.

http://www.songfight.org/music/big_yank ... us_byf.mp3

Ooh, and this "Dry Spell" entry by Elly Lane & the Janglin's Jims, which sounds like a collab between Elaine DiMasi, Wages or the Weakest Suit, and others?

http://www.songfight.org/music/dry_spel ... ims_ds.mp3

And this old "Thunder Storm" entry by Explode16 is a long time fav or mine:

http://www.songfight.org/music/thunders ... hunder.mp3

Man, random play is turning up some good stuff today. I think I may sign up for Twitter and start tweeting these songs/links, rather than spamming the boards...

Favs of mine from the archives (and I haven't really played a great deal of the stuff from the last few years, sorry - I'm still trawling through the 20+GB of music available on SF!!!):

Husky Youth - by JBB
Skyline - Milwaukee Youth Center Choir (one of my top 10 favourite songs ever of all time)
Tracks for Future Practice - Frankie Big Face
Top Drawer - Abjure! (A JBB pseudonym - the greatest folk song with three part harmony swearing you'll ever hear!!!)
Stuck Down A Mineshaft - Stateshirt (Ethan (aka Stateshirt) doesn't care that much for it I think, but I really dig it)
Secrets - Brick Pig
Dad I'm Changing - Duboce Triangle
Firecrackers - Dr Worm
Indie Rock Bottom - Mouth reliant
Death Pllunge - Glorious Mono
Standing In The Death Car - Narbotic

When I think of some others, i will post them...

Cheers

jippers' "step up" is one of the greatest Song Fight tracks of all time! (although the 2nd best in that fight, to the almighty Jefferson....)

I was listening to a few tracks from the Ken Hxaro and "2 Bucks and I'm Yours" came on, and I remembered why I loved this track so much at the time. Still love it now.

This Mother Funker entry for "Baba Ganoush" is a pretty good instrumental entry, especially the sweet slap bass solo.

In my epic SF Archive listening marathon, I'm putting together a sort of Hall of Fame. It has hundreds of songs in it, but I keep coming back to a few dozen songs over and over. Example:

Frankie Big Face - Floating Bridge
add - Acid Mouth
Hostess Mostess - Totally Digging Your Mom
Is there any reason you haven't bought my album yet? "We Are All Famous", on iTunes, CD Baby, and Green Monkey Records. Also available in unlimited edition "free" version:
Yes! I want to hear Jim's album without paying for it!

Yeah! This has always been one of my top 5 SF songs ever, and HM is probably my all time favorite SFer. He's in that small handful of SFers in which when I hear one of his better songs I throw up my hands and wonder why I'm bothering to write music at all.

"Romantic Cheapskate" by MC Frontalot is seriously great: http://www.songfight.org/music/romantic ... lah_rc.mp3

And one of the most lopsided fights of all time, which just makes the lyrics all that much BETTER.

http://www.songfight.org/songpage.php?k ... cheapskate

614 votes for Frontalot. Second place? 28. SO PITIFUL I WON'T EVEN TYPE THE POOR BASTARD'S NAME HERE.

Also noteworthy for being one of the only winners (and generally-perceived to be "good") to break the "Don't make your Song Fight entry about Song Fight" rule.

Are there any other people who've gotten away with that?
