...I'll subject myself to repeatedly listening to Barry Manilow's "Mandy" for 36 hrs. straight! 

C'mon, dude, it's not like you killed somebody!  :wth:

It's totally fine!  Said a million times we absolutely love and appreciate requests. 

The challenge for us is : :

  • what has not yet been charted
  • who else might be working on that song
  • is there a half decent midi available
  • do we both enjoy the song

The last one is pretty subjective because I can usually find something that I enjoy about any song.  That being said, the Kid Rock / Cheryl Crow duet was probably the fastest that I went from enjoying a song to absolutely hating it to death.  Its not even on my xbox.   The next time I hear that will be too soon. 

Handing us a short list of songs that you want in the game is very helpful.  You guys all keep us motivated to keep going and we want to keep you guys happy by throwing requests in there as often as possible.

 

Cheers

First off my apologies for sounding like an ass with my reply to the duets requests.

Sometimes my speedy one finger typing goes way to fast for my pea brain. :haw:

 

My partner explained it the way I should have.

 

Hi Doc,

First and foremost, apologies on my part if by my volunteering those additional duet song requests, it got out of hand and made it appear that we were putting you and MrPrez 'on the spot'. I assure you, it wasn't my intent to have you take it that way and then make you feel like you owed anyone an explanation as to how labor intensive the work truly is. Just know that I feel badly if I came across as 'entitled' or 'demanding/expecting' you guys to honor anything we suggested. I truly am grateful for all that every single author in this community labors thru to bring this awesome content to us. :rock: .

 

I'm not Yakuza (or anything of the sort) so I won't be sending you a finger in atonement for my dishonor :shobon: ....however, my Catholic sensibilities do require some sort of penance, so I'll subject myself to repeatedly listening to Barry Manilow's "Mandy" for 36 hrs. straight! :P  Will that square us up? :D

 

Hey Funk, it's all good.

If we did any requests it would be from you two or the people who did request some duet songs above.

Everyone that did request has supported our thread for months on end & we like to make you guys happy.

C'mon, dude, it's not like you killed somebody!  :wth:

It's all good Colonel, the Funkster & I go way back & I enjoy his banter.

I am going to cut his punishment to twelve hours of Kevin Federline

Glad we're all good here. It's hard to tell what's really being said when it's not direct face to face.

Doc, I don't think me or the mrs. could even begin to think you were ever an ass with how great you've been to us. :rock:

 

I took Colonel's reply as adding to the joke so it made me laugh even more.

And I'll gladly take that reduced sentence and shave more time off for good behavior! :D  ;)

Pretty sure 12 hours of Federline is worse than 36 hours of Manilow.

Wrong! As terrible as "K-Fed" is, at least he got beat. I can deal with 12 hrs. as long as I focus on beat.

Not all Manilow is bad but "Mandy" is a slow and brooding piano... 36 hrs. straight would make any man crazy.

Just ask Manuel Noriega, former dictator of Panama..... He knows! ;)  :D Lol !

 

 

 

Never mind asking Noriega, I just discovered he died in prison not long ago,

so now I must defer to the 'Old Pirates & Belligerent Scallywag's Handbook'....

That being said, the Kid Rock / Cheryl Crow duet was probably the fastest that I went from enjoying a song to absolutely hating it to death.  Its not even on my xbox.   The next time I hear that will be too soon. 

 

 

I think most people feel that way about it. The first time you hear it - "this is pretty good", 2nd time through 100 times you hear on the radio - " I used to like this song", and after a 100 times - " This is the most annoying song ever".  Now every time you hear the first chords - "Nope, still not ready." 

 

..Been livin' my life in a slow hell....

Good day to all

 

So as most of you have probably figured out, there was no Showdown post again this week.

 

Be assured we are still here, we both have other "older projects/other songs" we want to get done before getting back into Showdown & the Tuesday deadlines.

 

We are both actively authoring so your still getting some tunes, it's just not Showdown for now.

If we get 21 votes/voters total we release both songs on Friday.

If we don't reach 21 the runner up gets released at the end of season 3.

For this week it's
