    @Tusk

    Couple of great Super8 and tab songs for ya

    - Beautiful melody

    - Bit more energy, more concentrated build up. Another great melody


    I wont link my other favourite Super8 and Tab song though as I want to keep it for a future walrus. But its a belter! Actually, I probably could have submitted for your belter, but I didnt :D

    Great song though, gonna listen to the full playlist over the weekend

    My ipod is still going strong after more than 12 years, battery ain't what it used to be but I'll be gutted when it gives up the ghost.

    Still have the original 80GB brick wheel ipod. Works grand.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,882 ✭✭✭tusk


    23 songs left to review twice and 4 left to review once. I'll try get through a few tomorrow. Reveal perhaps on Sunday.

    IF you're all good

    I read that and was excited, then checked which round it was...!

    My issue with the changeling is that I had good reason to hate my song initially, it's crap! It's just circumstances around it that have led me to now enjoy it. As you're judging it cold it could come very low... it's certainly worse than The National!

    I'm still not at all sure about my Changeling. It was definitely the hardest category for me. In some ways at least, OTOH, the other categories had such a wealth of options that it was hard to narrow down, so they were difficult in their own way too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,018 ✭✭✭✭adox


    The changeling is the least inspiring of the categories.

    The one where you kind of hope you are marked low so you can say " I knew that song was shit all along" :D

    FG Beers, it would have been unnecessary madness to have this tonight. BH Monday reveal is perfect.

    Wooo hoo now I can finally complain that my song is not the same without the video

    Also starting whhhhhhhhhhhhhoooooooooooop


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,882 ✭✭✭tusk


    A reminder of Round 2:

    2. The Changeling
    Ever have a song you just know you hate. You don't know why, but you do? Then somehow for no apparent reason you start humming it when it comes on. All of a sudden you're actively seeking it out on Spotify or YouTube? Submit a song you initially hated but then grew to like.

    My Example:



    I hated this song. HATED. Couldn't get my head around the 'noone knoooows, how far it gooooos. It did not compute for me and it hurt me deep.

    Then I started to love it. It's a great song.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,882 ✭✭✭tusk


    Okay, here we go.

    In at the very middle we have The Wild Boys
    GNR
    with Rod Stewart - Maggie May and 13 points



    Notes:

    Listen 1: nice plucking intro. medeivel sounding. About to break out some greensleeves its sounds like. WTF, then the song starts and it's completely separate. what even is that intro doing there? DAFUQ. like this song actually. Well the first verse anyway. 'say to you' the climb on this part of the verse is just lovely. i like to sing it. very popular song, which means there are always detractors. intersted to hear the reasons for it being a changeling.


    Listen 2: Oh yeah, the intro that doesn't actually have anything to do with the bloody song. WTF. That's gotta be illegal right? The actual intro is decent enough tbf. I love the 'Wake up maggie' bit. Good song.

    Well, did she eventually find out????


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,882 ✭✭✭tusk


    Next up Klapauzius aka.
    Jurgen
    with Shake It Off by Taylor Swift and a solid 12 points...



    Listen 1: Ha! this was a changeling for me too. ****in hated it. But it's actually pretty decent. fairly flat throughout tho. Don't know a lot of taylor swift, but this is a decent one.

    Listen 2: Nah, not arsed listening to this again. Solid 6.5


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,882 ✭✭✭tusk


    The Syndicate
    Necro
    next with Wiley, Sean Paul, Stefflon Don - Boasty feat. Idris Elba get's himself 14 points



    Listen1: Love that bong. nice. don't like the clappy bit. I like this. super beat and the vocals are actually deadly, bit of layered vocals. bbbbbbiddybaba


    Listen 2:Oh that bass. I wish i had my skullcrusher headphones to listen to this. That beat is just great. The Boasty bit is the worst part. Everything else is pretty decent. Ok, now i'm getting bored of it. Bye bye
