*is excited*

I think this was my worst round so far, but I'm not too worried except if YBS totally pwns me.

we'll see...I went, long winded, obscure, but heavily talented, and my submission may have bent the rules, we'll see if I'm penalized.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

You aren't penalized. The song was written before my time. That's how I judged it.

Time for the results of round 6!




Ħ - Sugar Mice by Marillion

This song is really nice. It has a great laid back feeling while still being powerful and emotional. Beautiful. I had a great time listening.

4

energythief - The Prophet's Song by Queen

This is a great song! As always, great vocals from Queen. I love the journey it's goes though. This is best song you've given me so far. Keep doing good things. :lol

4

YtseBitsySpider - Try For Freedom by Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush

There's some pretty great guitar in this piece. I really love the sound, but...I hate to say...I really do. But it felt like it was just going on and on without really doing much else. It's good, but. I wish it'd develop more. Ugh. I feel really bad for saying that because I'm sure you or other fans of this song would argue it does have all the things that I say it needs. Maybe I don't know it needs. All I know is that...it just didn't amaze me. I'm sorry.

3

Nekov - The Whole Of The Moon by The Waterboys

Fun and upbeat song! I had a good time listening to it. I'm not sure what else to say about this one. Great job!

4

RaphaelRaven - Peacemaker Die by Extreme

This is a decent tune. I've always enjoyed Billy Joel. It doesn't do anything special for me particualarly, but it's not bad either.

3

Iarwain - Peel The Pain by Gentle Giant

Is it bad that I feel like you send me the same kind of songs every time? I bet it's my fault sorry. This one didn't really interest me either. It had some

good ideas in the softer bits, but over all it wasn't too enticing.

2

MasterShakezula - Get It On by Chase

While we've played this many times in our school's brass band, I've never heard the actual song. I think it's pretty fun! I can see that you're latching

onto a style now. Well it's working so far! Nice pick.

4

Ravenheart - Sea of Sorrow by Alice in Chains

I enjoyed this song a bit. It had a nice drive, but was too exciting. It was catchy, though! And I would listen again.

3

orcus116 - Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty

I found this to be really nice, relaxing, and beautiful. Good. Not great, but a good listen. I could really feel the emotion in the sax.

3



Great round, everyone! Nothing below average!

Right now the standings are:

26 - Ħ
25
24
23
22 - YtseBitsySpider, MasterShakezula
21
20 - RaphaelRaven
19 -
18 - Ravenheart, orcus116
17 - energythief, Nekov
16 - Iarwain


Ħ still has a dominating lead...I'm going by the music I swear! I sum of money I received has NOTHING to do with it! It was also really nice to see the bottom two score 4's and climb the ladder. Sorry, Iarwain. Better luck on this next round!




The seventh round is hopefully interesting.

7. Round of Second Chances

You know that song you almost sent me that one round, but then you found a better one? You remember? Yeah. THAT one. Send me that one. (If you honestly don't have a song that fits this...fake it. How will I know?)

GOGOGO!

Im hoping maybe you just found him listen-able enough to pursue his other stuff. You're right he does just go on a bit.
The wiki about him is almost more impressive than the song.

nice song orcus...he died a couple years ago I think...I love the sax in that song...and his voice is so low and smooth.


Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

Time for the results of round 7!




Ħ - Fear of a Blank Planet by Porcupine Tree

This is really nice. I haven't listened to a lot of PT, but generally they do it for me. It's solid, but doesn't jump out at me.

3

Iarwain - A Corporate Merger by Estradasphere

Wow. This was a fun song. The instrumentation was great, and those rhythms...just fun. Fun is the best word I can use.

4

YtseBitsySpider - Alpha Burst by Derek Sherinian

Well this was great! Just as I predicted! The driving ostinato with the solo is great. I don't know why. It...just...is. It's very cool.

4

energytheif - Blue by The Birthday Massacre

Okay. This song. Was. Terrifying. I don't even know if it was good. But it was pleasing. So I'll just give it a 3. Hahaha. It was epicly I don't know. So weird. But so interesting.

3

Nekov - In the Eye by Iluvatar

Okay. This song may be kind of simple, but I still really enjoy it. I love the synth sounds no matter how 70's they sound. Great pick! Or...not pick...then pick. Um. Yeah!

4

orcus116 - Blindfolds Aside by Protest the Hero

That was a fascinating song. So many ideas, and so driving. I liked how it end lighter than how it began. Very cool.

4

Ravenheart - Losing Myself by Nightingale

Ooh. I loved the vocals in this one. Great tone! Too bad the rest of the song wasn't as awesome. But it was still a good listen!

3

MasterShakezula - Those About to Die by Colosseum

You know, if you keep giving me jazzy stuff, it's gonna stop working! :lol This song is okay. It's not bad, but I can't find anything special with it either. Okay. I admit. The solo in the middle is pretty great. But it's not something I'd listen to all that often.

3

RaphaelRaven - 157 Riverside Avenue by REO Speedwagon

Good song. I'm not a fan of his rants he goes on. So. Yeah. Hahaha.

3



I don't know whether I'm in a good mood, or you guys are just sending really good songs! Either way it's all relative! On to the standings!

Right now the standings are:

29 - Ħ
28
27
26 - YtseBitsySpider
25 - MasterShakezula
24
23 - RaphaelRaven
22 - orcus116
21 - Nekov, Ravenheart
20 - Iarwain, energythief


I know things look dire, but there's still a lot of points to give out! I plan on pulling a Dumbledore at the end, so we'll see what happens!





8. Give Me Anything

You guys better give me a fucking good song OR SO HELP ME. Jk. But seriously.

GOGOGO!
