I would definitely be up for that. Put me down tentatively for "Dress Up In You" but I might pick something else. Gonna take me a couple of weeks as I'm back in school at a very ripe age.

i would absolutely love to do this. i have no clue which song though...
i'll get back to you.

ok right on

here is a very flexible list so far then


radiowires - "string bean jean"
pinocchio - "my wandering days are over"
dantheman - "lazy line painter jane"
payl - "marx and engels"
mikehattem - "dress up in you"
charrrrd - "i don't love anyone"
feeling retro - TBA


this will be acoustic so i don't know if you'll need your friend payl, but maybe you still want to double up. i guess we can make the due date January 5th? is that cool?

i'm going to keep this list on the townhall, because it's too annoying to do on both. let's try and get at least 15 covers. 18 - 20 3or4 minute songs would be ideal.

radiowires
10-18-2007, 03:07 PM
umm--- actually I'd like to do "This is Just a Modern Rock Song" instead. I just re-fell in luv with it.

pinocchio
10-18-2007, 05:39 PM
yeah...i'm think that my wandering days are over is going to be way too easy. i'm going to do either that or get me away from here, i'm dying - one of those two definitely. so know one else pick one of those, ok? ok

I'm doing "me and the major"!

radiowires
10-19-2007, 09:20 AM
I was hoping someone would cover that one!

radiowires
10-19-2007, 09:22 AM
the band i'm in covered get me away from here i'm dying and it was a lot of fun!!
i doubt they'd want to contribute to an internet album though

That's pretty close to my favorite ever B&S song... you should contribute an officeparty solo project version!

alrighty sons and wives, hear he.

it's kind of confusing with people saying stuff like:

"i kinda wanna do this one song... but i forget it"
or
"maybe i'll do a song"

here's the hood word - the more the better... but i guess hold off on input unless you're committed to doing a song. you have til Jan 5th anyway. let me (this thread) know if you are going to do one. nothin' else.
i've decided on my song. i'm doing the state that i am in. sorry, but that's final now. ok. so here's a new list. i'm going by what people in these threads have said.. or hinted at rather. let me know if i should change shit. if you've commented i'm just putting you down for the song.

OK...

radiowires - "this is just a modern rock song"
pinocchio - "the state that i am in"
dantheman - "lazy line painter jane"
payl - "marx and engels"
mikehattem - "dress up in you"
charrrrrd - "i don't love anyone"
feeling retro - TBA
jcmoods - "piazza, ny catcher"
stompclapclap - "she's losing it"
hockeywierdo - "stars of track and field"
canyr - "me and the major"


- Keep 'em coming. if you've said you might do one and don't want to anymore (jcmoods, stompclapclap, feeling retro, hockeywierdo, etc) let me know.

Peace

theaddingmachine
11-22-2007, 09:35 PM
could the deadline be at least, like, new year's day? i am SWAMPED until after finals and won't be able to work on songs until i get home, which is probably dec 20.

Here is Miniature And Presidential's cover. I think the noises might either make it interesting or annoying or both. I can change whatever if anyone wants to give me some feedback.

that's great!
the spoken (voicemail) vocal near center seems a little intrusive sometimes especially at the start, maybe that could be taken down very slightly. I like the other noises a lot. Great interpretation and singing voice.

hey guys so what's up with this... beans is hosting it. mine is pretty much done i suppose. we should get an official list together. i'll make the date jan. 1st? i don't feel like tracking people down though so i guess get it in by the 1st if you can, if you need more time than that let me know.

Hi pinocchio, here is our contribution. Please credit to radiowires with Pele Merengue and superman, it was a treehouse group effort. It's possible that an updated version will be sent to you later (further contributions from other folks are pending), but if this version gets used, it's fine with me. Hope it doesn't suck too bad.

so bringing this back up... who's doing what? who's still in?

I'm thinking I'd do Like Dylan in the movies, but I'm not sure if the person who's already called it sent one in/would still like to be in... so, maybe a new list of who's doing what?
