Yeah! Ken did an awesome job on those!

Also, the new version of Caravan Ray's is totally kickass. I will listen to more later.

What are you talking about - 'new version'? That's exactly how it happened on the night. You must have been drunk.

woo. lots of good songs.

My favorites at the moment, in vague order of favorititis:

Klownhole - for a totally rockin song.
High Density - for giving me katamari damacy flashbacks.
Caravan Ray and JBB - For your schlongs.
Pray For Mojo - for the lyrics and delivery.
@Eclectic Spoons - for singing about robots.
blue spud shoes - for singing about beer, and awesome vocal delivery.
Talmin Music - awesome, though i strongly suspect you wrote this song previously and it just happened to mention tan in it. Otherwise you would probably take my vote.

I also liked roasted manatees, stinkos, and melvin for not sucking.

Oh yeah, of course I also like our song. *metalhead voice*Daves Rock!!

After much deliberation... well, at least some anyway, High Density gets my vote.

great production, lyrics fit the title brilliantly, i love your vocals, and the song is just great.

klownhole was a close second, but lost out purely because the production was better on HD. Nice though!

I still really like tamlin music's song too. You have an awesome vocal style on this track. It's a female style, but somehow you make it work with your male vocals without making it sound weird.

The wrong Primitive Screwheads feat. Freudian Slip was initially posted.
The correct one is now in place. Please have another listen.

Whoa shit. I made it through all of them. Apologies for being a dickhole, if I was one....


Add, PfM, and JBB - I had a part in all of these and think they rock.

Caravan Ray - Crowd-pleaser. Solid groove. I like your grumbling a lot more than your singing. You sound like Mark E. Smith there at the beginning.

Parsons - I like the noises - electric guitar and shakers - but the falsetto got old fast. I wanted a change long before the change happened.

High Density - I love your pretty piano songs.

Blue Spud Shoes - This is a cool recording. The instruments and Spud's voice all sound so good together.

Paco Del Stinko - The intro made me think I was gonna hate this, but hey... this is pretty good. Could stand to rock a little harder though. I get the feeling you can do this stuff in your sleep.

Special Relatives - Totally okay. If it were half as long, it would be twice as good. Hits the interlude sweetspot.

The BeWells - Production is skilled, playing is great, singing is great. Some of the lines are pretty good too. On the whole, it's a little sappy for me.

Phillipsox - Nice groove, dopey song. I dug the solo.

Fluxxum Florum - I like the guitar and bass. I hate the vocals and drums.

Rone Rivendale - The chorus sounds like a deflated Spud. Is that what you mean by "Roned"?

Tam Lin - Yeah, it seems like this song was originally called Dark Heart. Which is completely lame but oh well. This is fine. It needs more - maybe more atmosphere? It sounds like it's trying to be more intense than it really is.

Bjam - In those gaps where you forget the words, I imagine the dirtiest things.... and feel horrible about myself.

Primitive Screwheads - Is this one danceable? No, not at all. This is kind of good, but sort of boring with the sparse arrangement. Vocal needs more to hold it up.

Stueym - Not quite as charming as in-person, but still thoroughly charming.

Bonfire of the Manatees - Good song. I especially like the drum track and the whole herky-jerky stop-start thing.

Klownhole - The rocking level is pretty good, but it gets boring.

Dave Patrol - Dumb intro and lame outro. Your rocking gets boring too, but at least you have a chorus.

Guitarotica - I guess this is ok for messing around.

Sockpuppet - Awkward phrasing? Gimme some of that awkward phrasing. Aw yeah, there's the awkward phrasing. (>_<)

Noah McLaughlin - Sorry, it's hard for me to get past that guttural stuff.

Seamus Collective - That melody came in, and I smiled with recognition immediately. Awesome. Love the lead guitar tone.

Eclectic Spoons - Your vocals are noisy and not very good and completely lose me. I like those guitar lines.

Melvin - Sometimes your voice hits a sour note ("great companion") but then you get some really great harmonies. This is a nice song.

Ross Durand - "If it was the nineties, they'd have taken the blue." Cute.

Thanks for the Frisbee - Something in the doot doots is off, and you lose the beauty you're building up. Aside from that, it gets whiny and trips my emo alarm. Needs some sack.

Glenn and Rachael - I think this is way more tender than necessary for a song about a naked dude.

"Bonfire of the Manatees" is the funniest band name I've heard in a while. I haven't listened to any of these songs yet but I might vote for them anyways.

Alternately, I may just start this fight playing on my computer and then walk over to the local pub for a while.

Sorry I cut out the rest of yours and PFM's debate on "what is danceable" from the track. You had to be there, I guess. :lol:

With so many entries I know it's easy to miss something.

Did you have any thoughts on my song?

Thanks,

Blue, thank you. (if you were being serious)

Ray, I'm insulted! I never want to be compared to Denyer ever again! lol

Edit: Oh and to be on topic here, I'm liking Ross' song the best after one run-thru of everything. Very unique idea and I thought it was performed well.
