    And in Second Place at the top we have The Wild Boys -
    Green&Red
    with 26 points for Neele Ternes - Dad



    Notes:

    Listen1: first few seconds had me tearing up. I don't especially like that style of singing, the way they say certain words really lazily or something, it usually annoys me but this song is nice. her voice is nice. the music is quite beautiful. lyrics are nice, overall a lovely piece of tunage. this is the type of song i'll find myself listening to for days on end and ruining for myself. which is the mark of something special for me

    Listen2: Ooooh there's a bit of twinge of emotion off the bat on this one. I like it. There's a serious energy to her singing. The music captures the emotion well too. I like it. The O-O-O-O bit i'm not hugely a fan of, but she has a bit of a belt afterwards which balances that out and then straight into the next verse beautifully.

    What I actually wrote in my submission...

    "There's many songs in the world that deal with relationships imploding dramatically but this perfectly captures a much more realistic end, that quiet helplessness as two people just drift apart. Imperceptible at first, until one day one realises. The conversation stops flowing, the little gestures dry up and somewhere a line is crossed. Then, perhaps too late, the second person realises. That's the space this song occupies, and I find it gut wrenchingly sad"

    Jesus christ. I couldn't even finish reading this because that is like the most emotional thing in the world for me. I'm gonna have to go back and listen again to get that from the song :(

    Sad song from Neele Ternes, she has that dare I say it ...Ronan Keating gurr in her vocal armour which I really don't like. But a lovely song.


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


    I don't wanna play this game any more :(

    That poor man had to fake his own death to get the family to come round for dinner!

    I love the song, green but my god I want to chuck all that family out of my helicopter.

    I missed Necro’s song.

    First Place

    Listen1: first song i've encountered here with a bit of an upbeat tempo. love the intro of the high hat, almost like it's clapping for itself. it's got a beat that get's my heart racing. mmmm. loving the intro of the music. i can see myself whacked out of it with a few strobe lights in the background just swaying to this out of my bickie. very tasty. will definitely look for more by this artist/s

    Listen2: The drum finers are out immediately here. head banging. eyes closed. feel that phase in and out. Anticipating something to come. there it is. ooh yeah, this is sweet, that phase in the background is doin strange things to me. beauty of a beat, and not stalling on one phrase or combination of beats/tracks for too long at any time, there's constant evolution on this and you're not left sitting there bored due to that. Around every corner theres something nice to keep me interested. love it. need some disco lighting to get me in the mood. Awwww **** got that high pitched melody coming in with a rising snare. yrup gimme more of this, all day long. my hands are feeling like they want to start stabbing the sky pew pew pew. Beauty. and then we move on, what's next? Something, becuase this song doesn't know how to stand still and i love it. 5 minutes in and the song is still full of surprises. It keeps changing and introducing new concepts, but doesn't lose itself, you know you're listening to the same song. Man I love this. six minutes in and we've got a kick drum ramp with what becomes a classic club tune sound and it's glorious. Out of the blue we get some female vocals. wtflip. only adds to the song. I'll probably ruin this song for myself by listening to it constantly after walrus.


    Last Place

    Listen1: yeah, not bad, i like the duet style. punchy tune, but it's just not doing it for me. couldn't see myself going back to it after this. your one's voice at the bridge bit is a bit underpowered, i'd say if there was a bit more oomph it would have gotten me a bit more. She's very understated the more i listen, almost like a good kareoke singer :/

    Listen2: hmmm. it's not bad. the clap is a bit offputting. WHOAH. Some serious key issues there at an early point. Ah key issues ffs. Come on. Need to get rid of your man there big time, he's ruining for your one. Would like to hear some harmonies instead of him just signing what she's singing an octave lower, it ads barely anything to the song and he can't hit the low note, keeps going off key. Jaysus. Coming to her solo bit, it's a bit meh. She's trying to do a bit of a belt, but it's not coming out. Pretty dissapointing there. she needs a bit more power in the voice there. Hurting my feelings because if it wasn't for the vocalists I think this could be like twice as good.

    Thanks for playing guys, and sorry for the harsh words. Really appreciate everyone submitting their songs and helping to broaden my horizons. I found some artists I didn't really know that I'll definitely be looking out for :D
