Instead of me requesting songs for other authors, typical in this forum, you recommend me some songs. 

 

I am making my own Rock Band setlist, called "Rock Band: Bloke's Picks." It will have about fifty to sixty customs. I don't think I've added enough songs that are a challenge on vocals, and when I try to think of some songs that would be hard, my mind comes to a blank. Examples of things I want are notes that are held for long periods of time, lyrics that are very fast, parts with small breathing room, and complicated melodies. You can request a song if:

 

  1. You think it would score a Challenging, Nightmare, or Impossible on Vocals.
  2. The song has something that can be charted on legacy instruments, because I'm making these customs for Rock Band 2, since I don't have RB3. (Enough requests however, and I'll probably make a Rock Band 3 version.)
  3. The song is not rap or hip hop. I would like if you requested alternative, punk, metal, rock, or the like, but it can be any other genre, just no rap.
  4. The song isn't a comedic/novelty song, doesn't come from non-music sources, (TV shows, video games, movies, etc., although you can request songs from musicals). These kinds of songs are reserved for the twenty bonus tracks.
  5. The song is not very long.
  6. The song isn't overly complicated.
  7. It is in either English, Spanish, French, or Japanese.

And with that being said, request away! Keep in mind I can't author right now because my computer is currently broken, but if it ever gets fixed, then I'll start authoring.

 

 

 

 

BTdubs, I don't mind if you request songs you made. In fact, I think it'd be cool if you did. :)

Lots of Rainbowdragoneyes songs are hard to sing, but fun to sing nonetheless.
Hard to chart though because his songs are pretty insane.

Hmm... I'd say Binged and Bit Purged. It's a super catchy song with a decent difficulty on vocals and pretty much every instrument.

But Rape Castle would be my second choice.

I've edited the original post to add this.

Oh well, Alrighty then. I might have a few examples but I might have to look them up or remember them.

I'm not sure that I can think of songs that are vocally challenging that are not complicated songs ... 

 

I guess that my pick would be something from King Diamond:

 

A Mansion in Darkness - already has the guitar part done here ...

The Family Ghost 

The Invisible Guests

 

I'd look at Fatal Portrait, Abigail, Them, Conspiracy and The Puppet Master albums.

 

Good luck with your PC ..

Can - Vitamin C (Damo Suzuki always uses a lot of weird pitches and sings in a confusing, stream-of-consciousness style)

Scott Walker - The Old Man's Back Again (Scott Walker uses a lot of weird melodies in his work)

Snow - Informer (It's a guy singing really fast in Jamaican patois. Nuff said)

Okay. I'll have a shot at this.

  • Eminem - Rap god
  • (There's a custom for this but only drums, bass, and keys.)
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers - You always sing the same
  • (VERY SHORT.)
  • Gorillaz - Doyathing
  • (I have all instruments partially done, the vocals are not charted, and the rap verse is VERY difficult.)
  • A Tribe Called Quest - Solid Wall Of Sound
  • Gorillaz - Hallelujah Money
  • (I have this partially done without vocals)
  • A Tribe Called Quest - What?
  • Blonde Redhead - Mother
  • Green Day - Nightlife
  • John Lennon Mother

All I could think of. Hope these help.
