The SHRMB song sucks dead dogs balls by cam (4.00 / 1) #1 Sat Jul 28, 2007 at 01:36:41 PM EST
Vote it -1. I was going to replace it with another song but didnt get around to it.

Evil Herring does much better fuzz pop than the shmrb entry.

YY's is awesome. Love Herring's piano and cello work. TPDs reminds me of the Blakes 7 theme. When I become the futurama satan I am stealing blixcos vocal chords.

Cam's work is always great, but this track is really very good.

Ze votes for the republic of TPDia are as follows by TPD (2.00 / 0) #3 Mon Jul 30, 2007 at 11:52:49 PM EST
Evil Herring - Douze point
Cam - Dix point
Blixco - Ouit point

Cam's guitar work and arrangement skills have become sickeningly good, those little mini solos are delivered with such style and confidence, and fit perfectly with the song - I just wish they were longer! However the fact I can't stop singing whore means it's probably my top pick.

Separating the other 3 entries was really difficult as I really liked them all, but in the end (as so often is the case) that voice was just too great not to vote for!

Good lord.  I'd forgotten that track, I really had.  It's a meandering mess, but it was fun to record.

I loved Cam's and Herring's tracks.  Herring's sounds like it needs a Waits vocal, and maybe some sort of theremin backing.

Overall I had a very tough time deciding on three, so I didn't.

If only I hadn't given up smoking, that track would've been great. Well, apart from the lyrics and music.

Ookay, tough choices. by ana (4.00 / 1) #7 Tue Jul 31, 2007 at 01:00:00 PM EST
I ended up voting for blixco and cam. I'd really like to encourage Herring to keep working on this kind of thing; there's really some promise there.

But this tune of cam's is ideal fuzzpop. It just doesn't get any better than this.

And those words were begging for a blixco tune just like the one we got.

Cedar Park Librarian - Douze point
    Magnifique
Whore - Huit points
    Would be more if Pinky and Perky weren't singing. (Ask misslake to do vocals maybe?)
Cam - Sept points
   I liked it more than the points show, but a bit too similar to previous work.
Yicky Yacky - Six points
TPD - Cinq Points
   Found a bit too repetitive. Maybe absence of vocals heighted that feeling.
Herring - Trois points
    Plsfixvocalskthx. :-)
Me - nil points
    Could try entering :-)

Absence of vocals by TPD (4.00 / 1) #9 Wed Aug 01, 2007 at 04:13:05 AM EST
maybe you should have tried listening a bit further. (vocals kick in at 1:29)

I do think it takes WAY too long to get going though I was going to fix it and then I just couldn't be bothered ;)

It's fair enough by TPD (2.00 / 0) #11 Wed Aug 01, 2007 at 04:19:47 AM EST
if it feels too repetitive after the 1st minute (and it does) - the entry deserves a good kicking anyhow :)

I was not going to find by Herring (2.00 / 0) #15 Fri Aug 03, 2007 at 10:56:42 AM EST
anyone to sing those lyrics. I had to get myself pretty drunk before I could talk myself into it. Even then I couldn't bring myself to use the whole content of the original ad.

don't drink, read craigslist, then record songs based on the ads.

That's good by bob6 (4.00 / 1) #12 Wed Aug 01, 2007 at 09:50:31 PM EST
Entered my vote: Blixco (+1 librarians) and yicky yacky (+1 fun to hear).

Hey, I was not paying attention when that was addressed: what's the status of this music? I suppose you guys wouldn't mind if I spread the files around.

Cheers.
I don't mind. by blixco (2.00 / 0) #13 Wed Aug 01, 2007 at 11:03:32 PM EST
Mine is free.

I believe we agreed an by Breaker (4.00 / 2) #18 Mon Aug 06, 2007 at 10:31:57 AM EST
"Unshaven chin licence" which is largely, keep performer's names on the files, and don't try and make any money off it without talking to the MFC entry's owner.
